Acer Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Supports Full HD

The Acer K132 supports full HD. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the K132 do not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors which support full HD and we think the H6510[pl_1557676_price], and the H6520BD[pl_2690133_price] both from Acer or the Benq TH681[plb_2192820_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
