8 Reasons For

NEC Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

NEC projectors have an average rating of 83 out of 100, which is in the top 34% of all multimedia projector manufacturers that we have assessed.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 6000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the UM301, the NEC UM301 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the NEC UM361[plb_2734608_price] is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The NEC UM301 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 720 x 480 (which is also supported by this data projector). This multimedia projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 720 x 576, 832 x 624, 1152 x 870, 1280 x 960, 1440 x 900, 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1366 х 768, 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 1920 x 1200 (W.

A 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) supported graphics resolutions is actually the best supported resolution across all data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the UM301.

The worst supported resolution amongst similar types of projector is 720 x 480.

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

The NEC UM301 has a maximum maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 11% more maximum digital resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels projector, which is the most common maximum digital resolution.

This multimedia projector's maximum digital resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) is actually the best maximum digital resolution across all projectors that are a comparable age to the UM301.

The worst maximum digital resolution across similar types of multimedia projector is 1280 x 1024 pixels.

Very Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The average service life of lamp (economic mode) of multimedia projectors of this age and spec is 6,000h. At 8,000 hours, the NEC UM301 has a very long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the UM301.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

Across all the data projectors that are a similar age to the UM301 the noise levels range from 27dB to 39dB. At only 27 decibels, the NEC UM301 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption (economy Mode)

With a power consumption (economy mode) of only 190 Watts, the NEC UM301 has a quite low power consumption (economy mode) compared to most of the other 6000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the UM301. Projectors that were released one year ago have power consumption (economy mode)s of between 190W and 310W, and the average power consumption (economy mode) is 250W.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

With a noise level (economic mode) of only 27 decibels, the NEC UM301 has a quite quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age. The quietest noise level (economic mode) of similar spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the UM301 is 27dB and the loudest is 31dB.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the UM301, the NEC UM301 does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NEC UM301 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other 6000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than a year also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the NEC UM301 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type. Across all the comparable spec projectors that were released one year ago the projector brightnesss range from 3,000 ANSI lumens to 5,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,900 ANSI lumens.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the NEC UM361[plb_2734608_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens).

Very Small Bulb Power

Across all the 6000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than a year ago the bulb powers range from 170W to 380W. The NEC UM301 has a quite small bulb power (only 170 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the UM301.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Lamp Power (economic Mode)

With a lamp power (economic mode) of only 140 Watts, the NEC UM301 has a fairly dim lamp power (economic mode) compared to most of the other 6000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than a year ago. Across all the 6000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the UM301 the lamp power (economic mode)s range from 140W to 160W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Offset

The smallest offset of projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the UM301 is 75% and the biggest is 81%. The NEC UM301 has one of the smaller offsets (only 75 percent) amongst multimedia projectors of this age.
