5 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked the user and expert reviews of hundreds of projectors to determine an average rating for each projector manufacturer. On average multimedia projectors from NEC have good reviews from experts and owners.

Supports 3D

The NEC U300X supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the U300X do not support 3D.

Alternative projectors which support 3D currently available which you might also want to consider include the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other data projectors of this spec and age, the NEC U300X has a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the NEC U300X is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). 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 NEC projector). This multimedia projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). The resolution of all similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the U300X ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors that were launched around the same time as it.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Most projectors of this age and spec do not support full HD. The NEC U300X is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support full HD including the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the U300X, the NEC U300X does not support wi-Fi.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], or the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of multimedia projectors of this spec and age range from 2,500h to 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 4,100h. With a service life of lamp (economic mode) of only 3,000 hours, the NEC U300X has one of the shorter service life of lamp (economic mode)s amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

With a noise level (economic mode) of 32 decibels, the NEC U300X has one of the louder noise level (economic mode)s amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Projectors of this type and age have noise level (economic mode)s of between 26dB and 37dB.

Chart Edit

Very Small Matrix Size

At only 0.55 inches, the NEC U300X has a quite small matrix size compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. The average matrix size of projectors of a comparable type and age to the U300X is 0.65".

4 Other reasons to consider the NEC U300X

Released Over Four Years Ago

This data projector has been on the market for over four years.

Average Noise Level

The NEC U300X has a relatively average noise level (36 decibels) compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the U300X.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 36dB noise level projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price].

Projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the Sony VPLFH31[plb_1475953_price] (37dB), or the Benq SP870[plb_1387494_price] (36dB).

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the NEC U300X has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the U300X.

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the NEC U310W[plb_1531485_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
