Complex Menus. Many settings are available that allow the purist to squeeze out every ounce of performance from the M353WS. However, that flexibility comes at the cost of a multi-level menu grid that takes some time to get used to. The most common settings are in the Image menu, but others are buried in sub-menus that are sometimes four levels deep.
Rainbow Artifacts. As with most DLP-based designs, the M353WS exhibits rainbow artifacts in certain high contrast scenes especially when the image pans slowly. Not all viewers are sensitive to these artifacts, and it is typically only a concern if you plan to use the projector for a lot of video presentation.
Size and Weight. There are smaller and lighter short-throw projectors available, but if low fan noise and extensive networking capability is a factor, these limitations may be unimportant.
NEC has introduced a short-throw projector that has it all. The M353WS puts up excellent data and video images and gives the presenter full control over the image settings. Virtually all inputs are accommodated including HDMI/MHL, and multiple networking options are provided. The projector is larger and heavier than some of its competitors, but size and weight tend to fall out of the equation when projectors are mounted on tabletops or carts. All in all, the M353WS is a top-notch projector for short-throw applications, and we give it our highest value and performance rating.
