NEC PE401H Conference Projector Review
December 12, 2013
A few projectors are particularly well suited for permanent installations, and NEC's PE401H is a prime contender. The projector is not light or compact, but it handles a wide variety of inputs, and its brightness and resolution produce some stunning data and video images for its price class. The PE401H is a 4,000-lumen HDTV projector (1920x1080 native mode resolution) with a street price of just under $2,000. It weighs about ten pounds and has a 13.8"x11.1" footprint, so it is probably best suited for ceiling mounting although it can be used in desktop and cart environments if space is available and the cart is sturdy.
Another clue to its intended usage is its detachable cable cover which you generally see in ceiling-mount installations. The PE401H sports dual 8-watt internal speakers that can deliver enough audio volume for medium-sized rooms, so small churches, photo clubs, and hotel meeting rooms can probably get away without the need for external amplification. To cap things off, the PE401H has both Web and computer control interface connectors, so it functions nicely as a networked projector.
