Reviews

Good Brand

Projectors produced by NEC generally have good ratings. 100% of those that bought a NEC projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC P401 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to this multimedia projector.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including a cheaper projector such as the Panasonic PT-VX500 or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the P501X, or the NP-P451 ($1,431.91) both from NEC.

Average Noise Level

At 36 decibels, the NEC P401 has a pretty typical noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.

If you would consider a data projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Panasonic PT-VX500 (34dB and cheaper); or the P501X (30dB and higher rated), or the NP-P451 ($1,431.91) (37dB and higher rated) both from NEC.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The NEC P401 does not support full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other 4000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to this projector also do not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the NEC P501X which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
