8 Reasons For

Good 3D Picture Quality

Some Acer P1163 owners who reviewed it agreed that it had a good 3D picture quality. Jim Cameron wrote in his Acer P1163 review “A brilliant 3D Projector” . Jim Cameron also wrote “Simply connect up your 3D blu ray player, set the projection mode to 3D DLP Ready”.

Easy to Use

One person who bought this projector considered that it was easy to setup. Jim Cameron mentioned in his Acer P1163 review on Amazon “It is also incredibly easy to set up”.

Good High Def TV

One person reckoned that the product was good at displaying high definition TV. Jim Cameron said on Amazon “Contrary to many reviews it is a full cinematic projector capable of 1080p HD” in his review.

Acer Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

We calculated the average reviews for all Acer projectors and also specifically for Acer 17000:1 contrast ratio data projectors and found that in both cases Acer had good reviews compared to other brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer P1163 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the P1163.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might also want to consider including the Acer H5380[plb_2123447_price] which has better reviews.

Other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might also want to consider include the P1173[pl_2123413_price], or the X1383[pl_2194099_price] both from Acer.

This projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is typical of many 17000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as it.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The Acer P1163 does not support 3D. Most of the other 17000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the P1163 also do not support 3D.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D and we think the Acer H5380[plb_2123447_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Acer P1163 does not support full HD. Most of the other 17000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the P1163 also do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years, the Acer P1163 does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Acer P1163 is SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. The worst resolution of all projectors that have been around for around the same time as the P1163 is VGA (640x480) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of data projectors of this type and age is 3,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Acer P1163 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss amongst 17000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Acer X1383[plb_2194099_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens).
