The amount of different signals the NEC U310W can accept has also made this a winner. You name it and it can accept it. Component video does require a VGA to component adapter but that isn’t a very big issue considering there is a HDMI port and that most likely will be how you get your HD signal into the projector. The quality of the image produced through HDMI was spectacular for a business projector. I was very impressed.
The NEC U310W projector is interactive, and I definitely want to end this review saying that the ability for the projector to be controlled by either your PC and or your IPad is pretty convenient. Let's not forget that NEC has created an interactive pen tool that plugs into the microphone input of your IPad that allows you to annotate on your IPad screen and have the lines show up on the screen. This explanation of the pen isn’t even touching on the surface of its capabilities, but it's quite a nice touch, and I can see many educators utilizing this great tool.
