7 Reasons For

NEC Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Projectors produced by NEC have an average rating of 83%, which is in the top 34% of all data projector manufacturers that we have analysed.

DCI 4K (4096 X 2160) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the NEC PH1201QL is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160). That's over four times the resolution of a 1080p (1920x1080) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

This multimedia projector's resolution (DCI 4K (4096 x 2160)) is actually the best resolution amongst all projectors of this spec and age.

Amongst similar types of multimedia projector the worst resolution is nHD (640x360).

Very Bright Projector Brightness

When compared to other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the PH1201QL that we have assessed, the PH1201QL's projector brightness of 12,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest. Across all the projectors of a comparable type and age to the PH1201QL the projector brightnesss range from 2,700 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Supports Full HD

The NEC PH1201QL supports full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age also support full HD.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support full HD currently available including because of it's better review score, the Canon WUX6000.

4096 X 2160 Supported Graphics Resolutions

The PH1201QL supports a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160. That's over twenty-eight times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA). This NEC multimedia projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 2048 x 1080 and 3840 x 2160 and 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080).

A 4096 x 2160 supported graphics resolutions is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all projectors that are a similar age to the PH1201QL.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) supported graphics resolutions is the worst supported resolution amongst similar types of projector.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PH1201QL does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year do have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think the Canon WUX6000 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D

Most 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than a year ago do not support 3D. The NEC PH1201QL is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NEC PH1201QL does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PH1201QL also do not support wi-Fi.

Very Loud Noise Level

When compared to other projectors of a comparable type and age to the PH1201QL that we have checked the noise level of, the NEC PH1201QL's noise level of 54 decibels is one of the loudest. The noise levels of 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the PH1201QL range from 28dB to 54dB, and the average noise level is 38dB.

Data projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth looking at include the Canon WUX6000 (40dB) which also has a higher rating.
