Good Brand

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

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Acer X1240 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this Acer projector). In addition, this projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the X1240 the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Very High Number of Colours

When compared to other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the X1240, the number of colours of the Acer X1240 of 1,073.4 million is one of the highest. The lowest number of colours of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago is 1M, the highest is 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 480M.

This projector has been on the market for over three years.

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

If this Acer projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the NEC NP-M282 ($599.00) (2,800 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
