8 Reasons For

Only Released Six Months Ago

This multimedia projector was only released six months ago, so it is likely to have more advanced features than some of the older data projectors.

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all Acer multimedia projectors and also specifically for Acer projectors and found that in both cases Acer had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Acer P1286 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other projectors that were released in the last 12 months.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to consider include the W345[pl_3862692_price], or the W355[pl_3862720_price] both from Optoma or the Viewsonic PPJD7828HDL[plb_3372439_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors that were released in the last 12 months, the Acer P1286 has a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Viewsonic PJD7720HD[plb_3416548_price] which has better reviews.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the W345[pl_3862692_price], or the W355[pl_3862720_price] both from Optoma is also worth considering.

Two HDMI Ports

Most projectors that were released in the last year have between one and four HDMI ports, including the Acer P1286 which has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Uniformity

At 85 percent, the Acer P1286 has a quite big uniformity compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the P1286. The smallest uniformity of newly released similar spec projectors is 70%, the biggest is 90%, and the average uniformity is 79%.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

With a noise level in economy mode of only 28 decibels, the Acer P1286 has one of the quieter noise levels in economy mode amongst projectors of this age. The quietest noise level in economy mode of multimedia projectors that have been on the market for the last year is 20dB and the loudest is 37dB.

Chart Edit

Very Light

At only 2.4 kilograms, the Acer P1286 is fairly light compared to most of the other latest projectors. The lightest similar spec data projector that has been around for the last year is 2.7g heavy, the heaviest is 28kg, and the average weight is 6.3kg.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the P1286, the Acer P1286 does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Viewsonic PJD7720HD[plb_3416548_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other recently released projectors, the Acer P1286 does not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity which you might want to consider including the Sony MP-CL1[plb_3151534_price].

Only XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Acer P1286 is XGA (1024x768). That's 62% less resolution than the most common native projector resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). The worst resolution of all new projectors is SVGA (800x600) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The Acer P1286 is a one VGA (D-Sub) port projector. Most of the other new projectors have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization

The average maximum vertical synchronization of similar spec projectors that came out in the last 12 months is 65kHz. The Acer P1286 has one of the lower maximum vertical synchronization (only 0.12 kilohertz) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

The Acer P1286 has a quite small optical zoom (only 1.1 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other projectors that came out in the last 12 months. The smallest optical zoom of projectors that are a similar age to the P1286 is 1.1x, the biggest is 12x, and the average optical zoom is 1.7x.

2 Other reasons to consider the Acer P1286

Average Projector Brightness

The Acer P1286 has a pretty typical projector brightness (3,300 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for the last year.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Viewsonic PJD6250L[plb_3737128_price], the Optoma X341[plb_3492834_price], or the Acer X125H[plb_3765481_price] which is cheaper.

If you are looking for a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Acer X1385WH[plb_3899182_price] (3,400 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.

Average Noise Level

At 31 decibels, the Acer P1286 has a relatively average noise level compared to most of the other recently released projectors.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 31dB noise level projectors currently available including cheaper data projectors such as the Acer X125H[plb_3765481_price].

Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth considering include the Viewsonic PJD6250L[plb_3737128_price] (32dB and cheaper), or the Infocus SP1080[plb_3696418_price] (32dB and cheaper).
