15 Reasons For

Good Brand

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

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Acer U5520B supports 3D image projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago also support 3D image projection.

Alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might want to consider include a cheaper projector such as the Benq MW853UST+ or you might consider a better rated projector such as the Benq W1350.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the Benq MH856UST is also worth considering.
