Chart Edit

The Acer C205 does not support full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not support full HD.

Only 1280 X 800 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

The Acer C205 has a maximum maximum digital resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. That's 56% less maximum digital resolution than a 1920 x 1200 pixels multimedia projector, which is the most common maximum digital resolution. The worst maximum digital resolution of all similar spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 640 x 480 pixels and the best is 1920 x 1280 pixels.

Chart Edit
