8 Reasons For

Just Released Seven Months Ago

The P1286 was only relased by Acer seven months ago.

Acer Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

On average Acer data projectors have good ratings as do all projectors produced by Acer.

Supports 3D

Unlike most of the other data projectors that were launched in the last year which do not support 3D, the Acer P1286 supports 3D.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support 3D currently available including the W345 ($567.50), or the GT1080E both from Optoma which is cheaper.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this projector and we think the Benq TH530 is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the P1286, the Acer P1286 has a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including cheaper projectors such as the W345 ($567.50), or the GT1080E both from Optoma.

It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Benq TH530.

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

The Acer P1286 is a two HDMI ports quantity multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Uniformity

At 85 percent, the Acer P1286 has a fairly big uniformity compared to most of the other data projectors that came out in the last 12 months. Across all the projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the P1286 the uniformitys range from 70% to 90%.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

Across all the data projectors that were launched around the same time as the P1286 the noise level (economic mode)s range from 20dB to 37dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 29dB. At only 28 decibels, the Acer P1286 has a quite quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other recently released similar spec projectors.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Data projectors that came out in the last 12 months have weights of between 2.7g and 28kg. With a weight of only 2.4 kilograms, the Acer P1286 is fairly light compared to most of the other recently released similar spec data projectors.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the P1286, the Acer P1286 does not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a full HD and we think the Viewsonic PJD7720HD ($549.99) or the Optoma GT1080E are also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out in the last 12 months, the Acer P1286 does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Only XGA (1024x768) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Acer P1286 is XGA (1024x768). That's 62% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution. New data projectors projector native resolutions range from SVGA (800x600) (worst) to WUXGA (1920x1200) (best).

Chart Edit

Very Low Vertical Synchronization (max)

Across all the data projectors that came out in the last 12 months the vertical synchronization (max)s range from 0.12kHz to 120kHz, and the average vertical synchronization (max) is 52kHz. With a vertical synchronization (max) of only 0.12 kilohertz, the Acer P1286 has a quite low vertical synchronization (max) compared to most of the other latest data projectors.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

The Acer P1286 is a one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity data projector. Most of the other new data projectors have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

The average optical zoom of comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released in the last year is 1.6x. The Acer P1286 has one of the smaller optical zooms (only 1.1 times zoom factor) amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age.

2 Other reasons to consider the Acer P1286

Average Projector Brightness

The Acer P1286 has a fairly typical projector brightness (3,300 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the P1286.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Acer X125H.

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Acer X137WH (3,700 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

Average Noise Level

At 31 decibels, the Acer P1286 has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other data projectors that were launched in the last year.

Alternative 31dB noise level projectors currently available that you might also want to look at include cheaper projectors such as the Acer X125H.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the Viewsonic PJD6250L ($390.99) (32dB).
