Expert review by : Tony Hoffman (



The NP-VE281 from NEC Display Solutions of America is a no-frills, lightweight data projector with very good data image quality, solid video quality, and loud, reasonably good sound.

Loud audio system. Above-par data image quality. Solid video quality.

Sparse connectivity choices. Lacks carrying case. Some rainbow effect.
