10 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Data Projector Reviews

Based on 655 expert and user reviews, Acer has good reviews for its multimedia projectors. Acer also has good reviews specifically for its 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.

Supports 3D

The Acer P1340 supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the P1340 do not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer P1340 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the P1340 also have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The Acer P1340 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by multimedia projectors of this spec and age. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this Acer multimedia projector. This multimedia projector also support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is in fact the best supported resolution across all 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the P1340.

The worst supported resolution amongst similar types of projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

This projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most commonly found projector native resolution on data projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Analog Resolution

The Acer P1340 has a maximum maximum analog resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 20% more maximum analog resolution than a 1600 x 1200 pixels projector, which is the most frequently found maximum analog resolution.

This projector's maximum analog resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) is in fact the best maximum analog resolution across all multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the P1340.

A 640 x 480 pixels maximum analog resolution is the worst maximum analog resolution amongst comparable types of projector.

Quite High Horizontal Synchronization (max)

The Acer P1340 has a quite high horizontal synchronization (max) (100 kilohertz) compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the P1340. Multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the P1340 have horizontal synchronization (max)s of between 0.1kHz and 110kHz, and the average horizontal synchronization (max) is 94kHz.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of projectors of this age and spec range from 28dB to 49dB, and the average noise level is 35dB. At only 30 decibels, the Acer P1340 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the P1340.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 30dB noise level projectors currently available including the Acer X1240 which has better reviews.

Very Light

The lightest projector of a comparable type and age to the P1340 is 360g heavy, the heaviest is 54kg, and the average weight is 4.6kg. With a weight of only 2.2 kilograms, the Acer P1340 is quite light compared to most of the other data projectors that are a similar age to the P1340.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

With a noise level (economic mode) of only 26 decibels, the Acer P1340's noise level (economic mode) is one of the quietest amongst projectors of a comparable type and age to the P1340. The average noise level (economic mode) of similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the P1340 is 30dB, and the noise level (economic mode)s range from 26dB to 40dB.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Acer P1340 does not support full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors of this type and age also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Benq W1300 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Acer P1340 does not support wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the P1340 also do not support wi-Fi.

Other data projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might also want to look at include the Benq W1500, or the Epson PowerLite 1222 ($695.00) which also has a higher rating.

Quite Small Bulb Power

The average bulb power of projectors of this type and age is 240W. At only 190 Watts, the Acer P1340 has a quite small bulb power compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

At only 1.1 times zoom factor, the Acer P1340 has a quite small optical zoom compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago the optical zooms range from 1.1x to 2x, and the average optical zoom is 1.3x.

2 Other reasons to consider the Acer P1340

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Acer released the P1340.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 2,700 ANSI lumens, the Acer P1340 has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Acer X1240.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the NEC NP-M282 ($599.00) (2,800 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
