  • The NEC NP-M271X delivers slightly lower brightness than typical for its price, but it also offers a 1.7x zoom and an unusually long lamp life, at up to 10,000 hours.


  • The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 750HD is an interesting proposition. While some users will be quick to write it off as a low-resolution alternative to the entry-level 1080p projectors in the marketplace, it distinguishes itself in several ways. It offers the best color available at its price point, it has full 3D capability, and it has more light output than either of its main competitors. This makes it a force to be reckoned with in the living room.


  • The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 750HD offers only 720p native resolution, but it also delivers guaranteed rainbow-free images in 2D and 3D, and it comes with one pair of 3D glasses.

    The NEC M311X has a lot going for it and its price point should be very attractive to the buyer looking for a low maintenance, high output projector in a compact package. For price and performance, it compares well with other LCD projectors in its class, while offering more features than many of them. However, the Viewsonic PJD6544w (big brother to the recently reviewed Viewsonic PJD5533w) offers WXGA resolution and similar brightness and features at lower price.


  • The NEC NP-M311W delivers a bright image, WXGA (1,280 by 800) resolution, near-excellent data image quality, and better video quality than most data projectors.


  • The Epson PowerLite 1761W Multimedia Projector is slim and ultra-light, offers very good data and video image quality, and provides solid connectivity choices including Wi-Fi.


  • The NEC NP-UM330X is best appreciated as a non-interactive ultra-short throw projector with an option to add interactivity, if you need it, at any time.
