9 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Data Projector Reviews

On average NEC 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors have good ratings as do all projectors produced by NEC.

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year which do not support full HD, the NEC U321Hi supports full HD.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC U321Hi has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the U321Hi.

There are a number of other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might also want to look at including the Epson Home Cinema 600 ($355.34) which has better reviews.

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

The NEC U321Hi has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). The worst resolution of all comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the U321Hi is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NEC U321Hi supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than a year ago. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this NEC projector. This data projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 720 x 480, 720 x 576, 800 x 600 (SVGA), 832 x 624, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1152 x 870, 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1280 x 960, 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1366 x 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 and 1600 x 900 and 1680 x 1050 (WS. The resolution of all 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the U321Hi ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

Most projectors of a similar spec and age to the U321Hi have between one and two HDMI ports quantitys, including the NEC U321Hi which has two HDMI ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

The NEC U321Hi is a two USB 2.0 ports quantity multimedia projector. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the U321Hi have between one and three USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Lamp Power (economic Mode)

With a lamp power (economic mode) of 220 Watts, the NEC U321Hi has one of the brighter lamp power (economic mode)s amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than a year have lamp power (economic mode)s of between 120W and 280W.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the U321Hi, the NEC U321Hi does not support 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D and we think the Epson Home Cinema 600 ($355.34) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NEC U321Hi does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the U321Hi also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the Epson EX7235 ($649.97) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very Small Offset

Projectors that came out around the same time as the U321Hi have offsets of between 62% and 150%. The NEC U321Hi has one of the smaller offsets (only 65 percent) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The NEC U321Hi has one of the shorter service life of lamp (economic mode)s (only 4,000 hours) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The average service life of lamp (economic mode) of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the U321Hi is 7,100h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

The NEC U321Hi has a fairly short service life of lamp (only 3,000 hours) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the U321Hi. 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released one year ago have service life of lamps of between 1,500h and 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Power Consumption (economy Mode)

The average power consumption (economy mode) of projectors of a similar age and type to the U321Hi is 250W. The NEC U321Hi has a fairly high power consumption (economy mode) (264 Watts) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the U321Hi.

3 Other reasons to consider the NEC U321Hi

Released Over a Year Ago

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

Average Projector Brightness

The NEC U321Hi has a relatively standard projector brightness (3,200 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the U321Hi.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the MW883UST (3,300 ANSI lumens), or the MX882UST (3,300 ANSI lumens) both from Benq.

Average Noise Level

The NEC U321Hi has a fairly standard noise level (34 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the U321Hi.

If you would consider a multimedia projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the NEC U321H (34dB), or the Ricoh PJ WX2240 (34dB).
