12 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Projector Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Acer data projectors and also specifically for Acer projectors and found that in both cases Acer had good reviews.

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other data projectors of this age and spec which do not support Full HD projection, the Acer P1385W supports Full HD projection.

There are a number of other data projectors which support Full HD projection currently available which you might also want to consider including the Infocus IN119HD ($440.99), or the Epson EH-TW5210 which has better reviews.

It is worth also looking at other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Epson EH-TW5300.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Acer P1385W supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for more than a year.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Optoma S312 which is cheaper; or the Infocus IN119HD ($440.99), and the Viewsonic PJD6552LW ($535.99) which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer P1385W has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the P1385W also have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Infocus IN119HD ($440.99), or the Viewsonic PJD6552LW ($535.99) which has better reviews; or the Optoma S312 which is cheaper.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Acer P1385W is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is in fact the best supported resolution amongst all data projectors of this age and spec.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution across comparable types of projector.
