7 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Projector Reviews

13000:1 contrast ratio projectors manufactured by Acer have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that Acer also has good reviews across its entire range.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer P1276 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the P1276.

Other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might also want to look at include the Benq TW519[plb_1552764_price], or the Optoma DX346[plb_2212801_price] which has better reviews; or the Benq MS512[plb_2290289_price] which is cheaper.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years support 3D image projection, however the Acer P1276 does not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Optoma DX346[plb_2212801_price] or the Benq MS512[plb_2290289_price] are also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Acer P1276 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the P1276 also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Benq MS512[plb_2290289_price]; or the Epson EH-TW5100[plb_2591283_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Acer P1276 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

Comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the P1276 have noise levels of between 26dB and 40dB, and the average noise level is 33dB. At 34 decibels, the Acer P1276 has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the P1276.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Benq MX518[plb_1521707_price] (32dB) which is also cheaper.
