Big, bright, detailed picture with excellent color
When shopping for a projector for film and video, the best choice is a projector designed for home theater. But when you do not need the deep black levels and high-definition resolutions provided by these projectors, or simply want to put up a big picture on a budget, projectors like the NEC NP115 are great options. The NP115 gives you a big, bright, detailed picture with excellent color for only $399.
Good picture quality and easy-to-use top-mounted controls
With good picture quality and easy-to-use top-mounted controls, the NEC NP115 enjoys a wide range of picture-tweaking options and a long bulb life in eco mode. We also like the NEC NP115's image presets, but it has fewer connections than its rivals, and a tinny speaker. We also found that the NEC NP115's image lacks detail in dark film scenes.
Good picture quality
A shade smaller and lighter than the Mitsubishi XD221U, the NEC NP115 instantly makes an impression thanks to the clean lines of its matt-white, plastic body. The fact that all its major controls are cleanly separated on the top â?? making it easy to pick the option you want without accidentally hitting other buttons (weâ??re looking at you, Optoma EX531p) â?? is a boon too.
Good image quality
Calling it a mobile projector is perhaps pushing it a bit, at a weight of 2.5kg, but the NP215 performs reasonably well. However, although the ability to control multiple units via the included software is a bonus, it's a shame NEC didn't make more of the projector's built-in network connection.
good contrast ratio
Overall, the NP216 is a solid, low cost solution for the classroom or conference room looking for 3-D capability. Color presentations have a sharp picture and good color balance. I see no reason why it wouldnâ??t find its way into many classrooms and conference rooms.
excellent classroom projector choice
While the NP216 is a good candidate for business presentations, it is particularly suited to classroom use. Data images are sharp and clear, but the NP216's video performance is its main attraction, especially since it requires no setting adjustments to put up a knockout image. An HDMI input would have been a nice addition, but all in all, the NP216 has nearly everything a classroom presenter needs, including mouse control from the remote.
Lamp life is extended up to 5000 hours with the use of its ECO ModeTMÂ technology and lowers power consumption to 217W (0.49W in standby mode).Â Power management allows the projector to turn off automatically when an incoming signal is not detected on any of the inputs, and its quick start (3-4 seconds) and shutdown technology allows immediate use and power off functionality without the need for a cooling period.
