9 Reasons For

Good Owner Reviews

Based on 8 owner reviews the average owner rating of this data projector is 83%.

Acer Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Acer has good average reviews for its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire multimedia projector range compared to other brands.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago, the Acer P1283 supports 3D image projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Benq MS524 ($453.00) which is cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Acer X1373 ($318.99), or the Benq MX518.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other similar spec data projectors that came out more than two years ago, the Acer P1283 has a built-in speaker.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Benq MS524 ($453.00) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the Acer X1373 ($318.99), or the Benq MX518 is also worth considering.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Acer P1283 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

In addition, this Acer projector supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is actually the best supported resolution across all 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

3 Other reasons to consider the Acer P1283

Released Over Three Years Ago

Acer released the P1283 over three years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Acer P1283 has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the P1283.

There are a number of alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available that you might want to look at including the Benq MW820ST which is cheaper; or the MX819ST ($596.99), or the TW523 both from Benq which has better reviews.

If this 13000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Benq MW526 ($350.00) (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated) or the Benq MS524 ($453.00) (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
