8 Reasons For

Robust

One customer who bought it considered that it was well made. Three years ago A. Boulton mentioned on Amazon “Take a white-grey solid background for the layer beneath” in their review of this projector.

Good Picture Quality

Some people who purchased it considered that it had good colour saturation. A. Boulton wrote “ONLY if they are bright colours”. A. Boulton also mentioned “To check I wasn't going insane I plugged my old monitor and the same scene looked great - deep black colours, great contrast”.

Good Brand

Acer 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors have good ratings on average and across all data projectors Acer is one of the superior brands.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Acer 240 supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other projectors of this age and spec which do not support Full HD projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including the X1311[pl_1374828_price], or the H6520[pl_2410301_price] both from Acer or the NEC NP-M282[plb_2338575_price] which has better reviews.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago which do not support 3D image projection, the Acer 240 supports 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the X1111[pl_1377014_price], or the P1500[pl_1569835_price] both from Acer or the NEC NP-M332[plb_2358438_price].

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

Most data projectors of a comparable type and age to the 240 have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the Acer 240 which has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Very Light

At only 2 kilograms, the Acer 240 is fairly light compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. The weights of data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the 240 range from 360g to 54kg.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The narrowest 10000:1 contrast ratio projector that has been around for around the same time as the 240 is 100mm wide and the widest is 970mm. The Acer 240 is one of the narrower projectors that have been around for a similar time to the 240 (only 264 millimeters) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

5 Reasons Against

Difficult to Use

One customer mentioned in their reviews that it was not easy to use. Three years ago A. Boulton mentioned “There is no seperate control for brightness and backlight intensity, so I tried using the brightness control to try”.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Acer 240 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 240.

It is worth considering alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Acer X1311[plb_1374828_price], the Epson PowerLite 1262W[plb_2223781_price], or the NEC NP-M402X[plb_2341229_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Acer 240 does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the 240 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the PowerLite 1222[pl_2225031_price], or the 1985WU[pl_2785330_price] both from Epson or the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price] which is also higher rated.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the 240 range from 300 ANSI lumens to 20,000 ANSI lumens. At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the Acer 240 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the X1311[pl_1374828_price], or the U5310[pl_1598190_price] both from Acer or the Epson EB-575W[plb_2237067_price] which has better reviews.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the PT-LB280E[pl_3122603_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens), or the PT-TW250[pl_2404089_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens) both from Panasonic or the Benq TH682[plb_2448398_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Quite Small Lamp Power

The lamp power of data projectors of a similar spec and age to the 240 range from 15W to 470W. At only 190 Watts, the Acer 240 has a fairly small lamp power compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

I bought this amazing monitor and I have no idea what the other review is about, it is amazing.

Reviewed 15 June 2015 by Joshua Dixon

Lewis is correct, I don't know what that one star rating is about, what a pleb.

Reviewed 13 August 2013 by A. Boulton

Grabbed one of these as I wanted a cheap but reasonable 1080p monitor to upgrade my 1680x1050 display. Immediately regretted it. The backlight bleed on this monitor is absolutely astonishing, and... Read more…
