5 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Projector Reviews

On average projectors produced by Acer are rated 79%, which is in the top 58% of all data projector brands that we have looked at.

Supports 3D

The Acer P1185 supports 3D, as do most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the P1185.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support 3D currently available including the Acer X113P[plb_3043847_price] which is cheaper.

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors which also support 3D including the Acer X1285[plb_3021306_price].
