Just Projectors review of the NEC UM301X: The UM301X is ultra short throw and is ideal for classrooms. The projector mounts above the board or screen and projects a wide image from very close - for example you can get a 1.5 m wide image from only 54 cm away (the wall mount kit comes supplied as standard). This is beneficial because teachers will be able to stand audience side of the projector, casting no shadow on the screen and being able to engage with the students better. In addition, the teacher will get no glare from having to look into the lens of the projector. One of the strengths of this projector is the range of inputs which includes two HDMI, VGA, and USB meaning you can connect more than one device at the same time. There are two USB ports and you can present PC-free via a USB stick. There is also a microphone input too. A built in 20W speaker is surprisingly powerful (enough to fill a small to medium sized room), and means you wouldn't need to purchase any additional speakers. The 3000 lumens means that you can present with the lights on and blinds open at anytime of the day and still get a bright image. You will not lose any brightness due to the UM301X being short throw. With XGA resolution, the UM301X will project a sharp, crisp image, showing presentations and spreadsheets in good detail. It is suitable for PowerPoint, images and short video clips. Widescreen projectors are recommended for long movies. However, you will get a sharp image when connecting to a computer with the UM301X. NEC focus on their Eco friendliness and this unit has some good features to keep the running costs down including an off timer which will switch off the projector if no source is connected after a certain amount of time and many more. Overall, this is a reliable, user friendly projector perfect for classroom use and has many features. For more information please check out the PDF link on the left hand side.

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.
