10 Reasons For

Good Brand

NEC 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings on average and across all projectors NEC is one of the superior manufacturers.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC UM280 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the UM280.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might want to consider including the CP-WX4022[pl_1887899_price], or the CP-X5022[pl_1857320_price] both from Hitachi or the Sony VPL-SX630[plb_2576926_price].

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NEC UM280 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's 8% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the UM280. 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. In addition, this NEC projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 720 x 480, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 960, 1600 x 900, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1152 x 864 (XGA+), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the UM280 the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

This data projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most commonly found projector native resolution on 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

The NEC UM280 has more HDMI ports quantitys than most of the projectors of this age and spec. Most of the data projectors of this age and type only have one HDMI ports quantity, however this NEC multimedia projector has two HDMI ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The NEC UM280 has one of the longer service life of lamp (economic mode)s (8,000 hours) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. Projectors of a comparable type and age to the UM280 have service life of lamp (economic mode)s of between 230h and 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 5,700h.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp

3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years have service life of lamps of between 1,500h and 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 4,400h. With a service life of lamp of 5,000 hours, the NEC UM280 has a quite long service life of lamp compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many data projectors of a similar type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 28 decibels, the NEC UM280 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the UM280. The quietest noise level of comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the UM280 is 26dB and the loudest is 45dB.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

The NEC UM280 has one of the quieter noise level (economic mode)s (only 28 decibels) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The noise level (economic mode)s of projectors of this age and spec range from 26dB to 35dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 30dB.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The NEC UM280 does not support 3D, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the UM280, the NEC UM280 does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support full HD including the Hitachi CP-CW300WN[plb_2411979_price].

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the UM280 do not support wi-Fi. The NEC UM280 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Sony VPL-SX630[plb_2576926_price], or the Hitachi CP-WX4022[plb_1887899_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Small Bulb Power

3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the UM280 have bulb powers of between 140W and 400W. The NEC UM280 has one of the smallest bulb powers (only 170 Watts) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

The projector brightness (economic mode)s of projectors that came out around the same time as the UM280 range from 1,500 ANSI lumens to 4,400 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness (economic mode) of only 1,680 ANSI lumen, the NEC UM280 has a quite dim projector brightness (economic mode) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the UM280.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Lamp Power (economic Mode)

At only 140 Watts, the NEC UM280 has a fairly dim lamp power (economic mode) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the UM280. The lamp power (economic mode)s of projectors of a comparable age and spec to the UM280 range from 110W to 6,000W.

2 Other reasons to consider the NEC UM280

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when this data projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,800 ANSI lumens, the NEC UM280 has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

If this 3000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the Hitachi CP-CW300WN[plb_2411979_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
