10 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

On average multimedia projectors produced by NEC are rated 83 out of 100, which is in the top 34% of all projector manufacturers that we have assessed.

Supports Full HD

The NP-PA550 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the NP-PA550 do not support full HD.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support full HD currently available including the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago, the NEC NP-PA550 has a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years is 110 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 10,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 5,500 ANSI lumens, the NP-PA550 has one of the brighter projector brightnesss amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NP-PA550 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). This 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 projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

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

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The NP-PA550 has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). The worst resolution of all projectors of this spec and age is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Quite Big Matrix Size

At 0.75 inches, the NP-PA550 has a fairly big matrix size compared to most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the NP-PA550. The smallest matrix size of comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago is 0.45", the biggest is 0.8", and the average matrix size is 0.65".

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

This projector has a maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, which is typical of many projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

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

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

With a power consumption (PowerSave) of only 0.2 Watts, the NP-PA550 has a very low power consumption (PowerSave) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago. The average power consumption (PowerSave) of projectors of this age and type is 200W, and the power consumption (PowerSave)s range from 0.2W to 460W.

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The NP-PA550 does not support 3D. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the NP-PA550 also do not support 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other 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 NEC NP-PA550 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for more than two years also do not support wi-Fi.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to consider include the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which is also higher rated.
