6 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the 203B, including the Acer 203B, have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker including a higher rated product such as the MX618ST, or the MW870UST both from Benq or the Panasonic PT-FW430U ($724.97).

Bright Projector Brightness

At 5,000 ANSI lumens, the Acer 203B has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is the most commonly supported graphics resolution on multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to it.

If you would prefer a projector with a higher resolution then you might want to also look at the Optoma W303 (1280 x 720 (HD 720 and higher rated), 1280 x 800 (WXGA and higher rated), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated) and higher rated), the Epson EH-TW550 (1280 x 720 (HD 720 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the Panasonic PT-FX400U ($1,525.95) (1024 x 576 (WSVGA and higher rated), 1280 x 720 (HD 720 and higher rated), 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+ and higher rated), 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080 and higher rated), 640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated) and higher rated).

Big Lamp Power

With a lamp power of 350 Watts, the Acer 203B has a quite big lamp power compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

6 Reasons Against

Most of the projectors of this age and spec, including the Acer 203B, do not support 3D image projection.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 203B, the Acer 203B does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the XJ-A245V, or the XJ-H2650 ($1,199.00) both from Casio are also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Acer 203B does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Panasonic PT-FX400U ($1,525.95), the Viewsonic PRO8520HD, or the Smart LightRaise 60WI are also worth considering.

At only 1,500 hour, the Acer 203B has a very short lamp service life compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the 203B.

Chart Edit

Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The Acer 203B has a fairly short service life of lamp in economic mode (only 2,500 hours) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

The highest resolution of the Acer 203B is XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).
