5 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Projectors produced by Acer generally have good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Acer P1185 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other latest similar spec projectors also support Full HD projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including the Acer X115H[plb_3762955_price], or the Optoma W331[plb_3372582_price] which is cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Optoma DX349[plb_3434769_price].

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the P1185, the Acer P1185 supports 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might also want to look at including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Acer X115H[plb_3762955_price], or the Optoma W331[plb_3372582_price].

It is worth also looking at other data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Optoma DX349[plb_3434769_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer P1185 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out in the last year also have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Acer X115H[plb_3762955_price], or the Optoma W331[plb_3372582_price].

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Optoma DX349[plb_3434769_price].

Very Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of recently released 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors range from 22dB to 37dB, and the average noise level is 30dB. With a noise level of only 26 decibels, the Acer P1185 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors that came out in the last year, the Acer P1185 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The Acer P1185 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

A SVGA (800x600) native projector resolution is actually the worst resolution across all multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the P1185.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) native projector resolution is the best resolution across comparable types of data projector.

Only 800 X 600 (SVGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Acer P1185 is 800 x 600 (SVGA). That's 48% less resolution than a 1280 x 720 (HD 720) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the P1185. Recently released similar spec projectors graphics resolutions range from 640 x 350 to 3840 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization

Across all the 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the P1185 the maximum vertical synchronization range from 0.12kHz to 120kHz. The Acer P1185 has a very low maximum vertical synchronization (only 0.12 kilohertz) compared to most of the other recently released 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

The Acer P1185 has one of the dimmer brightness in economy mode (only 2,560 ANSI lumens) amongst multimedia projectors of this age. Latest projectors have brightness in economy mode of between 2,500 ANSI lumens and 5,200 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Port

The Acer P1185 is a one HDMI port data projector. Most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the P1185 have between one and two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Optical Zoom

The optical zooms of data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the P1185 range from 1.1x to 2x. When compared to other new 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors, the optical zoom of the Acer P1185 of only 1.1 times zoom factor is one of the smallest.

2 Other reasons to consider the Acer P1185

Released Over a Year Ago

This Acer projector has been on the market for over a year.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Acer P1185 has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other new 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

If this 20000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Optoma W331[plb_3372582_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
