Acer is one of the superior projector brands according to average reviews from owners and experts, and Acer also has good reviews for its 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

The Acer X1173 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years also support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including a cheaper data projector such as the Acer X1273[plb_2193441_price] or you might consider a higher rated data projector such as the H5380[pl_2123447_price], or the P1173[pl_2123413_price] both from Acer.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer X1173 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker.

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to look at include a cheaper multimedia projector such as the Acer X1273[plb_2193441_price] or you might consider a higher rated multimedia projector such as the H5380[pl_2123447_price], or the P1173[pl_2123413_price] both from Acer.
