7 Reasons For

Acer Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

13000:1 contrast ratio projectors manufactured by Acer have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that Acer also has good ratings across its entire range.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Acer S1383 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer S1383 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the S1383 also have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the MS619[pl_2024148_price], or the MS504[pl_2024728_price] both from Benq which has better reviews.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Acer S1383 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago. In addition, this projector supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA).

This multimedia projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution across all 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

The worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of multimedia projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Acer S1383 is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most common native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768).

This projector's resolution (WXGA (1280x800)) is in fact the best resolution amongst all 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years.

Amongst comparable types of projector the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600).

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The Acer S1383 has a fairly bright projector brightness (3,100 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type. The dimmest projector brightness of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago is 800 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 4,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,000 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 31 decibels, the Acer S1383 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for more than two years. The quietest noise level of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the S1383 is 26dB, the loudest is 40dB, and the average noise level is 33dB.

If you would consider a data projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the P1283[pl_2189846_price] (31dB), or the X113[pl_2323218_price] (31dB) both from Acer or the Optoma EW556[plb_1717954_price] (30dB).

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the S1383 do not support Full HD projection. The Acer S1383 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

Other projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to look at include the MS504[pl_2024728_price], or the MX505[pl_2024730_price] both from Benq which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the S1383 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Acer S1383 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Low Number of Colours

The average number of colours of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years is 700M, and the numbers of colours range from 1M to 1,100M. At only 1.07 million, the Acer S1383 has a quite low number of colours compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the S1383.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization

At only 0.12 kilohertz, the Acer S1383 has a fairly low maximum vertical synchronization compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the S1383. The lowest maximum vertical synchronization of projectors of this age and type is 0.12kHz, the highest is 480kHz, and the average maximum vertical synchronization is 110kHz.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

The optical zooms of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the S1383 range from 1x to 1.2x, and the average optical zoom is 1.1x. At only 1 times zoom factor, the Acer S1383 has a fairly small optical zoom compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the S1383.
