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.
