Good Picture Quality

Two customers who bought the product mentioned that it had good colour saturation. A. Boulton gave this projector a score of 5 stars and said “To check I wasn't going insane I plugged my old monitor and the same scene looked great - deep black colours, great contrast”. A. Boulton also wrote “ONLY if they are bright colours” in their review.


Acer Has Good Data Projector Reviews

We checked 820 expert and user reviews (including 57 verified purchases) for Acer projectors and found that on average Acer has good ratings compared to other brands. We also found that Acer has good ratings specifically for its 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors. 94% of those that bought a Acer multimedia projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.



One person who bought the Acer 240 said that it was well made. A. Boulton scored the product 5 stars and mentioned on Amazon “Take a white-grey solid background for the layer beneath”.

Difficult to Use

One person thought it was not easy to use. A. Boulton mentioned in their review of this projector on Amazon “There is no seperate control for brightness and backlight intensity, so I tried using the brightness control to try”.


Supports Full HD

The Acer 240 supports full HD. Most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to this data projector do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support full HD currently available including because of it's better review score, the X1311, or the H9505 both from Acer or the Epson Home Cinema 600.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer 240 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this projector which have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the X1311, or the X1111 both from Acer or the NEC NP-M402X ($959.00) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of projectors of a comparable type and age to this multimedia projector is 300 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 20,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens. The Acer 240 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

We compared this projector to all the other 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors and we think the EB-X03, the EB-S17, and the EB-W03 all from Epson which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the PT-LB280E (2,800 ANSI lumens), or the PT-TW250 (2,800 ANSI lumens) both from Panasonic or the Epson PowerLite 98 ($479.00) (3,000 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
