10 Reasons For

Good Brand

Data projectors produced by NEC generally have good reviews.

Supports Full HD

The NP-PA500 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-PA500 do not support full HD.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support full HD to this projector and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NP-PA500 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-PA500 also have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NP-PA500 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this NEC multimedia projector). This multimedia projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the NP-PA500.

The worst supported resolution across comparable types of projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Very Big Matrix Size

At 0.79 inches, the NP-PA500 has a fairly big matrix size compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age. The average matrix size of comparable spec data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the NP-PA500 is 0.65", and the matrix sizes range from 0.45" to 0.8".

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The NEC NP-PA500 is a three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity data projector.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

This projector has a maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, which is the most frequently found maximum digital resolution on similar spec data projectors that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Bulb Power

The bulb powers of projectors that have been around for a similar time to the NP-PA500 range from 170W to 4,000W, and the average bulb power is 320W. At 330 Watts, the NP-PA500 has a fairly big bulb power compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

At 4,000 ANSI lumens, the NEC NP-PA500 has a fairly bright projector brightness (economic mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago. The projector brightness (economic mode)s of comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 1,400 ANSI lumens to 5,400 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness (economic mode) is 3,100 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

The NEC NP-PA500 has one of the higher RMS rated powers (10 Watts) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The average RMS rated power of similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-PA500 is 6.9W, and the RMS rated powers range from 1W to 19W.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The NP-PA500 does not support 3D, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D and we think the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NP-PA500 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the NP-PA500 also do not support wi-Fi.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price].

Quite Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

The NP-PA500 has one of the louder noise level (economic mode)s (31 decibels) amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Across all the 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the noise level (economic mode)s range from 26dB to 37dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 30dB.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Power Consumption (PowerSave)

At 372 Watts, the NEC NP-PA500 has a quite high power consumption (PowerSave) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-PA500. Data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-PA500 have power consumption (PowerSave)s of between 0.2W and 460W.
