7 Reasons For

NEC Projectors Have Good Reviews

NEC is one of the better rated data projector brands according to average user and expert review score data that we have collected for all projectors.

Supports Full HD

The NP-PA521U-13ZL supports full HD. Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the NP-PA521U-13ZL do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NP-PA521U-13ZL has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-PA521U-13ZL also have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to look at including the Hitachi CP-AX2503 which has better reviews.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The NP-PA521U-13ZL has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is actually the best resolution across all 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years.

The worst resolution across comparable types of projector is XGA (1024x768).

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the NEC NP-PA521U-13ZL is 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 multimedia projector). In addition, this data projector 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).

This projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-PA521U-13ZL.

Amongst comparable types of projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many data projectors of a similar age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

The NP-PA521U-13ZL has a quite low power consumption (PowerSave) (only 0.11 Watts) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age. Comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the NP-PA521U-13ZL have power consumption (PowerSave)s of between 0.11W and 730W, and the average power consumption (PowerSave) is 230W.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The NP-PA521U-13ZL does not support 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors of this spec and age also do not support 3D.

Other projectors which also support 3D that you might want to look at include the Epson Z8455WUNL which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NP-PA521U-13ZL does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

The NP-PA521U-13ZL is a one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity multimedia projector. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-PA521U-13ZL have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity

Most 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years have between one and two USB 2.0 ports quantitys, including the NP-PA521U-13ZL which has one USB 2.0 ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Only One Lamps Quantity

The NEC NP-PA521U-13ZL is a one lamps quantity projector. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the NP-PA521U-13ZL have one lamps quantity.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

At 33 decibels, the NEC NP-PA521U-13ZL has a quite loud noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the NP-PA521U-13ZL. The average noise level (economic mode) of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-PA521U-13ZL is 31dB, and the noise level (economic mode)s range from 28dB to 35dB.
