9 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

Projectors produced by Acer generally have good reviews compared to other brands.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Acer X1278H supports 3D image projection. Most of the other latest 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors also support 3D image projection.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Acer X1285.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the P1285 TCO, or the X1378WH both from Acer is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other latest comparable spec data projectors, the Acer X1278H has a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to look at including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Acer X1285.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the P1285 TCO, or the X1378WH both from Acer is also worth considering.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

This multimedia projector supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1920 x 1200 (WUXGA), which is typical of many new similar spec data projectors.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

At 3,800 ANSI lumens, the Acer X1278H has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other new similar spec multimedia projectors. The average projector brightness of new multimedia projectors is 3,400 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Quite High Maximum Vertical Synchronization

The Acer X1278H has a fairly high maximum vertical synchronization (120 kilohertz) compared to most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out in the last 12 months. The average maximum vertical synchronization of newly released comparable spec data projectors is 43kHz, and the maximum vertical synchronization range from 0.12kHz to 120kHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Uniformity

The average uniformity of 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out in the last 12 months is 80%. The Acer X1278H has one of the bigger uniformities (90 percent) amongst 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Lamp Power

The smallest lamp power of 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released in the last 12 months is 190W, the biggest is 370W, and the average lamp power is 230W. With a lamp power of 260 Watts, the Acer X1278H has a fairly big lamp power compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the X1278H.

Chart Edit

Two VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Acer X1278H is a two VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X1278H have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Acer X1278H does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other latest multimedia projectors do support Full HD projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to consider including the X1285, or the P1186 both from Acer.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Acer X1278H does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for the last year also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Only WSVGA (1024x576) Native Projector Resolution

The Acer X1278H has a maximum resolution of WSVGA (1024x576). That's 42% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all projectors that are a comparable age to the X1278H the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

With a noise level of 32 decibels, the Acer X1278H has one of the louder noise levels amongst 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. The noise levels of new 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors range from 22dB to 37dB.

If you would consider a multimedia projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the P1285 ($371.11) (26dB), or the X1285 (26dB) both from Acer which is also cheaper.

Quite Short Lamp Service Life

The lamp service life of the Acer X1278H of only 3,000 hours is one of the shortest amongst comparable spec projectors that were released in the last 12 months. The average lamp service life of 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the X1278H is 6,400h, and the lamp service lives range from 3,000h to 20,000h.
