17 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

This data projector received a rating of 70 out of 100 from expert review site PC Mag.

Robust

Three NEC NP-UM351W reviewers who reviewed it agreed that it was well made. Expert review site Pcmag.com mentioned “The NEC Display Solutions NP-UM351W ($1,369) is a bright data projector for classroom or business use that offers good brightness, loud sound, solid data- and video-image quality”. Pcmag.com also wrote “The NEC Display Solutions NP-UM361X is a WXGA ultra-short-throw data projector that offers solid data- and video-image quality”. Last year Pc Mag said in their review of the NEC NP-UM351W on PC Mag “Image quality, though solid, is unimpressive”.

Good Product Quality

A few customers who reviewed it thought it was good quality.

Good Brand

NEC is one of the better rated projector manufacturers according to average reviews from owners and experts, and NEC also has good ratings for its 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

Good Sound Quality

One NEC NP-UM351W reviewer who purchased it concluded that it had good sound quality.

Good Picture Quality

One person who reviewed this projector considered that it had good picture quality.

Acceptable Noise Level

One NEC NP-UM351W owner said in their reviews that it was noisy.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the NP-UM351W, the NP-UM351W has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Acer S1210[plb_1488621_price], the Panasonic PT-TW330[plb_1944621_price], and the Infocus IN114ST[plb_2703889_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the NP-UM351W is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-UM351W. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. In addition, this projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

This data projector's resolution (1600 x 1200 (UXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution across all projectors of this type and age.

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

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The NP-UM351W does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the NP-UM351W also do not support full HD.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD that you might want to look at include the CP-A302WNM[pl_1864470_price], the CP-WX3530WN[pl_1913085_price], or the CP-AW312WNM[pl_1915238_price] all from Hitachi which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D

The NP-UM351W does not support 3D. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP-UM351W also do not support 3D.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support 3D which you might want to look at including the NEC L51W[plb_1496151_price], or the Infocus IN114ST[plb_2703889_price] which also has a higher rating.

Quite Small Offset

The offsets of data projectors that are a similar age to the NP-UM351W range from 10% to 130%. The NP-UM351W has a fairly small offset (only 81 percent) compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

With a noise level of 38 decibels, the NEC NP-UM351W has one of the louder noise levels amongst projectors of this age. The noise levels of 4000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the NP-UM351W range from 30dB to 42dB, and the average noise level is 36dB.

Alternative 38dB noise level data projectors currently available that you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the NEC L51W[plb_1496151_price], or the Hitachi CP-X3030[plb_1864816_price].
