NEC NP60 projector


Outside of an office environment bigger isn't usually better when it comes to projectors. Home users want stylish, compact offerings they don't have to bolt into the roof with 6-inch girders, and thankfully the tech industry is responding in kind. At...

Extremely easy to transport, setup and use, great picture quality, straightforward adjustments, fast start-up and shut-down

A little loud on non-Eco mode, no component/HDMI

At around £1000 there are cheaper models around, but not many that achieve performance like this from something so small. For a combination of quality, portability and ease of use the NP60 is an excellent choice for the average home user.

It is so small!


VERY happy with this product.

I had been renting a MASSIVE projector, about 2-3 time the size of your average car battery. This one is about the size of a Trapper Keeper ... and it is nearly as powerful! And easy to use! Great product

Oh, if you leave the keystone "on" it actually will auto-correct itself when you shift between mediums (camera/DVD/VHS). But that is MINOR. You just have to keep it "off

Projector goodness


Wow were to start, auto focus works great along with auto keystone. The projector is bright and crisp. I work with many projector brands and I'm finding that NEC packs a punch
