NEC has been making projectors for a number of years. The company makes a wide range of units that have features suited to specific uses. One of the best projectors for people looking for a big image that don't have a huge room is a short-throw unit. These projectors are able to throw big images from closer to the wall or screen than normal projectors.
NEC has added two new units to its M Series of short throw projectors. The projectors include the M332XS and the M352WS. These projectors differ in a few key areas. The M332XS has 3300 lumens of brightness while the M325WS offers 3500 lumens. The two projectors also differ in resolution with the 332XS offering XGA resolution and the 352WS offering WXGA resolution.
Both of the projectors use DLP tech and have a special ECO Mode to save power and extend the lamp life. The M332XS has a 0.6:1 throw ratio while the M352WS has a 0.48:1 ratio. The projectors also have a variable audio output to allow external speaker volume be controlled by the projector remote.
The projectors support 3D content and have a pair of HDMI inputs. Wi-Fi connectivity is optional and both the projectors have a top cover lamp so the lamp can be changed without removing the projector from a mount. The M332XS will sell for $959 with the M352WS selling for $1069 with both shipping in April.
