NEC M353WS Education Projector
Just Projectors review of the NEC M353WS: The NEC M353WS is a bright short throw projector suitable for medium to large audiences. NEC is again offering great value for a projector with many features and is reliable. With the bright 3500 lumens you can project with the lights on and blinds open to a medium to large audience. The short throw lens means that you can project a large image from a short distance away from the screen. It is great if you are limited on space and also eliminates shadows on the screen. You will not get any glare into your eyes whilst presenting as you stand in front of the projector. It can produce a 150" diagonal image from just 1.4m away. Whilst it would normally be installed, at only 3.6KGs, it would also work well as a portable projector, being able to project an image in small and large rooms. Give us a call if you would like this installed as we offer this service throughout the UK. NEC has certainly not held back with the huge range of connections, giving it 2 HDMI inputs which you would normally only find on the high end installations units which are more than twice the price. There is VGA, Composite (video and audio), USB and other audio inputs and outputs too. You can use the USB port for PC-free presentations. With so many connectivity options you can connect to multiple sources without swapping cables around. You can get up to 8,000 lamp hours with the M353WS and with either the RS232 or RJ45 connections you can keep an eye on the lamp hours from the comfort of your desk. The M353WS also offers a hands-on experience with the optional interactive add-on keeping the audience even more engaged. There are a whole host of other features that make this a great choice so check out the PDF to the left for more information or give us a call.

About Just Projectors
We provide advice on the phone listening to your requirements we are able to help you get the right one as we have trained staff . We have a network of installers to cover your area. On higher end models we can arrange a loan or demo. We think most people should buy HD resolution , they are so affordable now and you wouldn't buy a 5 year old laptop so why buy SVGA which is over 20 years old. Yes XGA & WXGA are ideal for simple presentations and education use but we have all been use to decent home TV's or high resolution phones or tablets so why put a huge image on the wall/screen which is inferior. There are some great brands out there like BenQ, ViewSonic, Epson, Sony and less known ones like EIKI or Vivitek. Yes you can buy the wrong one, this is why we still offer advice rather than just an add to cart website. We have a price promise, we see the models, we often put one against another and see which one is best. We only buy UK stock, which has higher warranty standards to ensure you get real value for money. We don't sell the cheap brands as the lumens aren't verified. Look at our name it tells you that we are committed to this product and we have a great reputation in the market place for price and customer service. We supply the UK but also in Ireland, we offer a 1-3 day service to Ireland.
