13 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Projector Reviews

Acer is one of the superior data projector brands according to average reviews from users and experts, and Acer also has good reviews for its 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Acer P1515 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other data projectors of this age and type.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the NEC M403W ($1,402.49) which is cheaper.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Panasonic PT-VX425N ($1,282.95), or the NEC M303WS is also worth considering.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Acer P1515 supports Full HD projection, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the P1515.

We compared all the other projectors which support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the M403W ($1,402.49), and the M333XS both from NEC which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Panasonic PT-VX425N ($1,282.95).

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the P1515, the Acer P1515 has a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to look at including the CPAW2505 ($1,100.00), or the CPX4041WN ($961.99) both from Hitachi or the NEC M403W ($1,402.49) which is cheaper.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The Acer P1515 has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution. Across all 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the P1515 the resolution ranges from XGA (1024x768) to WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Projector Brightness
