4 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Projector Reviews

On average Acer 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all multimedia projectors built by Acer.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer U5213 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the U5213.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think cheaper projectors such as the Acer U5313[plb_2126225_price], the Epson EB-1980WU[plb_2399669_price], and the Benq W1070+W[plb_3252509_price] is also worth considering.

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Acer U5213 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the U5213 have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Digital Zoom

With a digital zoom of 2 times zoom factor, the Acer U5213 has one of the bigger digital zooms amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. Comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the U5213 have digital zooms of between 1.1x and 2x.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most projectors of a comparable age and spec to the U5213 do not support 3D image projection. The Acer U5213 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection which you might also want to consider including the Acer U5313[plb_2126225_price], or the Benq W1070+W[plb_3252509_price].

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Acer U5213 does not support Full HD projection, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Epson EB-1980WU[plb_2399669_price], or the Benq W1070+W[plb_3252509_price] which is also cheaper.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the U5213, the Acer U5213 does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Benq W1070+W[plb_3252509_price] is also worth considering.
