NEC NP-V332W Projector Review

The NEC NP-V332W is one model in NEC’s V-series of portable projectors intended for business or education applications.  It appears NEC intends for this to be their “Value” series, offering a lot of performance for the modest price.  The other V-series model line-up also includes the NP-V302H and the NP-V332X.   All three V-series models use DLP display technology and have a very similar physical appearance, but offer different resolutions and at price points (MSRP) ranging from $479 up to $799.  The NP-V302H has a full-HD resolution of 1920 x 1080.  The NP-V332W, being reviewed here has WXGA resolution of 1280 x 800 while the “entry level” NP-V332X has lower XGA resolution of 1024 x 768.  Thus, what we are reviewing here is the mid-level model, both in price (i.e., $579 MSRP) and resolution, of NEC’s V-series of portable projectors.

Overview

The NP-V332W is a compact, portable projector with a footprint of under 1 square foot and a weight of just over 6 pounds.  While it may be much larger and heavier than the tiny Pico or Pocket class of projectors, it puts out a much brighter image with well over 3000 lumens in its brightest mode and 1150 lumens in a mode with accurate colors.

This NEC projector, and the other V-series models, lacks certain of the built-in multimedia capabilities for PC-free presentations that are found in some competing business projectors, including models in NEC’s own M-series of business/classroom projectors.  The NP-V332W does offer very good input connectivity and networking supporting.  The built-in speaker plays loud enough for most needs in a moderate size conference room or classroom.  Also providing WXGA resolution a this price point is a notable feature.  Overall it is an attractive projector at a reasonable price.

This model received our “Hot Product” award for offering good features and performance at a modest price.
