10 Reasons For

Good High Def TV

One Acer U5220 owner who reviewed the Acer U5220 concluded that it was good at displaying high definition TV. Ican mentioned in their review of this projector in October last year “Amazing amazing hd projector, PS3, PC, Video files all look stunning” .

Acer Has Good Data Projector Reviews

Acer 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings on average and across all multimedia projectors Acer is one of the superior manufacturers.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Acer U5220 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than a year ago do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Benq MH684[plb_3146470_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer U5220 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the U5220 also have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to consider including the PJ WX3351N[pl_3011582_price], or the PJ X4241N[pl_3011571_price] both from Ricoh.
