10 Reasons For

Acer Projectors Have Good Reviews

Multimedia projectors built by Acer are some of the better multimedia projectors according to average expert and user reviews.

Supports Full HD Projection

Like most of the other similar spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the P1285, the Acer P1285 supports Full HD projection.

Alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available which you might want to look at include cheaper data projectors such as the Optoma DX349[plb_3434769_price].

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the P1186[pl_3762954_price], or the X1285[pl_3021306_price] both from Acer is also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Acer P1285 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the P1285 also support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Optoma DX349[plb_3434769_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the P1186[pl_3762954_price], or the X1285[pl_3021306_price] both from Acer.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer P1285 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the P1285.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the P1186[pl_3762954_price], or the X1285[pl_3021306_price] both from Acer is also worth considering.
