8 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

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

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the X122, the Acer X122 supports 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might also want to look at including a cheaper projector such as the Acer X123PH ($245.99) or you might consider a better rated projector such as the Benq TW526.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Benq MX570 ($429.00).

Very Bright Lamp Power in Economic Mode

The average lamp power in economic mode of data projectors of this spec and age is 4,600W, and the lamp powers in economic mode range from 250W to 11,000W. The Acer X122 has a very bright lamp power in economic mode (11,000 Watts) compared to most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the X122.

Chart Edit

Very Long Lamp Service Life

When compared to other projectors of this age and spec that we have assessed, the lamp service life of the Acer X122 of 6,000 hours is one of the longest. The shortest lamp service life of projectors that are a similar age to the X122 is 2,000h, the longest is 6,000h, and the average lamp service life is 3,900h.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 30 decibels, the Acer X122 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. Across all the multimedia projectors of this type and age the noise levels range from 27dB to 38dB, and the average noise level is 33dB.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Benq MX525 ($235.00) (33dB and cheaper).

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Very Light

With a weight of only 2.3 kilograms, the Acer X122 is quite light compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. Similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X122 have weights of between 1.8kg and 5.5kg, and the average weight is 2.9kg.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The Acer X122 has one of the quieter noise levels in economy mode (only 27 decibels) amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The noise levels in economy mode of multimedia projectors of this type and age range from 27dB to 34dB.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Acer X122 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other projectors of this age and type.

We compared all the other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this multimedia projector and we think the Benq TW526; or the Benq MX525 ($235.00) are also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Acer X122 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the X122 also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the X123PH ($245.99), or the X133PWH ($655.40) both from Acer or the Benq TW526.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Acer X122 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the X122 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The Acer X122 has a fairly dim projector brightness (only 3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the X122. The average projector brightness of projectors of this type and age is 3,200 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 300 ANSI lumens to 4,200 ANSI lumens.

If you are looking for a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Acer X133PWH ($655.40) (3,100 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the Benq MX507 (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

Very Small Lamp Power

Data projectors that are a similar age to the X122 have lamp power of between 190W and 310W, and the average lamp power is 220W. With a lamp power of only 190 Watts, the Acer X122 has a fairly small lamp power compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Number of Colours

When compared to other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the X122 that we have assessed the number of colours of, the Acer X122's number of colours of only 1.07 million is one of the lowest. The numbers of colours of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the X122 range from 1M to 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

Across all the multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the X122 the brightness in economy mode range from 2,400 ANSI lumens to 2,500 ANSI lumens, and the average brightness in economy mode is 2,400 ANSI lumens. At only 2,400 ANSI lumens, the Acer X122 has a quite dim brightness in economy mode compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the X122.
