11 Reasons For

NEC Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all NEC projectors and also specifically for NEC 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases NEC had good ratings.

Supports 3D

The NEC V281W supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the V281W do not support 3D.

We compared all the other data projectors which support 3D to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-M311W[plb_1525270_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the V281W, the NEC V281W has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson EB-425W[plb_1844228_price] is also worth considering.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the NEC V281W is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than the most common supported graphics resolutions of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). In addition, this data projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1280 x 800 (WXGA).

This multimedia projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution amongst all 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the V281W.

The worst supported resolution amongst similar types of multimedia projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

This data projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many projectors that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Matrix Size

Projectors of this spec and age have matrix sizes of between 0.55" and 0.75", and the average matrix size is 0.61". At 0.65 inches, the NEC V281W has a fairly big matrix size compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The NEC V281W has more VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys than most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the V281W. Most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the V281W only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, however this multimedia projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

The NEC V281W has a maximum maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. That's 8% more maximum digital resolution than the most common maximum digital resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels.

A 1920 x 1080 pixels maximum digital resolution is actually the best maximum digital resolution amongst all multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

Amongst similar types of projector the worst maximum digital resolution is 1600 x 1200 pixels.

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Very Light

With a weight of only 2.5 kilograms, the NEC V281W is one of the lighter 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Projectors of this spec and age have weights of between 230g and 30kg.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

Data projectors of this spec and age have power consumption (PowerSave)s of between 0.1W and 330W. The NEC V281W has one of the lower power consumption (PowerSave)s (only 0.5 Watts) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The NEC V281W does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not support wi-Fi.

It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi including the EB-425W[pl_1844228_price], or the BrightLink 436Wi[pl_1875520_price] both from Epson which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the V281W do not support full HD. The NEC V281W is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support full HD including the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] which also has a higher rating.

Quite Loud Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the NEC V281W has one of the louder noise levels amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The quietest noise level of multimedia projectors of this spec and age is 26dB, the loudest is 45dB, and the average noise level is 35dB.

Chart Edit

Quite Low RMS Rated Power

The average RMS rated power of projectors of this spec and age is 11W, and the RMS rated powers range from 0.5W to 20W. With an RMS rated power of only 7 Watts, the NEC V281W has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

At 33 decibels, the NEC V281W has a fairly loud noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the V281W. The noise level (economic mode)s of projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the V281W range from 26dB to 35dB.

2 Other reasons to consider the NEC V281W

Released Over Three Years Ago

NEC released the V281W over three years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

The NEC V281W has a fairly standard projector brightness (2,800 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the V281W.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 2,800 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available including the NEC VE281[plb_1473677_price] which has better reviews.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the Promethean UST-P1[plb_2713404_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), the Sony VPL-SW235[plb_2284441_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the Hitachi CP-CX300WN[plb_2172494_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens).
