7 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

NEC is one of the better rated projector brands according to average user and expert reviews, and NEC also has good reviews for its 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.

Supports Full HD

The NP-U321H-WK supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the NP-U321H-WK do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age, the NP-U321H-WK has a built-in speaker(s).

Alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to consider include the Epson EX7235[plb_3060914_price] which has better reviews.

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the NEC NP-U321H-WK is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. The worst resolution of all projectors of this age and type is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the NP-U321H-WK is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this multimedia projector). This NEC data projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 576 (WSVGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The resolution of all 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-U321H-WK ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

At only 0.18 Watts, the NEC NP-U321H-WK has a fairly low power consumption (PowerSave) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than a year ago. The average power consumption (PowerSave) of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the NP-U321H-WK is 140W, and the power consumption (PowerSave)s range from 0.18W to 290W.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the NP-U321H-WK, the NEC NP-U321H-WK does not support 3D.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support 3D including the Epson Home Cinema 600[plb_3077179_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago do not support wi-Fi. The NP-U321H-WK is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Epson EX7235[plb_3060914_price].

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

With a service life of lamp (economic mode) of only 4,000 hours, the NP-U321H-WK has one of the shorter service life of lamp (economic mode)s amongst projectors of this age. Similar spec data projectors that have been around for more than a year have service life of lamp (economic mode)s of between 1,000h and 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 7,100h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

The shortest service life of lamp of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the NP-U321H-WK is 1,500h and the longest is 30,000h. With a service life of lamp of only 3,000 hours, the NP-U321H-WK has a quite short service life of lamp compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Quite High Power Consumption (economy Mode)

The NP-U321H-WK has one of the higher power consumption (economy mode)s (272 Watts) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The lowest power consumption (economy mode) of multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the NP-U321H-WK is 170W and the highest is 760W.

3 Other reasons to consider the NEC NP-U321H-WK

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when this 10000:1 contrast ratio projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the NP-U321H-WK has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the NEC M333XS[plb_3113388_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens).

Average Noise Level

The NP-U321H-WK has a pretty typical noise level (34 decibels) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than a year ago.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 34dB noise level data projectors currently available including the Benq W1350[plb_2750779_price] which has better reviews.

If you are not worried about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the Epson EB-585W[plb_2237068_price] (35dB).
