The NP3250W offers a WXGA resolution of 1,280 x 800, a brightness of 4,000 lumens, and a contrast ratio of 500:1. The other models all offer XGA resolution (1,024 x 768) and a contrast ratio of 600:1. The NP3250 sports a brightness of 5,000 lumens; the NP2250 has a brightness of 4,200 lumens; and the NP1250 has a brightness of 3,700 lumens.
Other features include:
- Wired and wireless networking capabilities;
- 2,000-hour lamp life (3,000 in economy mode);
- ±30 degree vertical keystone correction and ±40 degrees horizontal keystone correction;
