+10 More reasons for
The Acer P1383 supports 3D. Most of the other 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the P1383 do not support 3D.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D currently available including the X1173[pl_2123448_price], the P1173[pl_2123413_price], or the X1383[pl_2194099_price] all from Acer which has better reviews.
Supports Full HD
The Acer P1383 supports full HD, unlike most of the other 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the P1383 which do not support full HD.
Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the P1383, the Acer P1383 has a built-in speaker(s).
We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the P1163[pl_1488785_price], the X1263[pl_1488786_price], and the P1273B[pl_1569832_price] all from Acer which has better reviews is also worth considering.
1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions
This multimedia projector supports a supported graphics resolutions 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+)|1920 x 1080 (HD 1080)|1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is typical of many projectors of this type and age.
Very Bright Projector Brightness
The Acer P1383 has one of the brightest projector brightnesss (3,100 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. The dimmest projector brightness of data projectors of a comparable type and age to the P1383 is 3,000 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 3,100 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,000 ANSI lumens.
It may also be worth considering one of the other 3,100 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Acer X1383[plb_2194099_price].
Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys
The Acer P1383 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys than most of the multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the P1383. This projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity data projector compared to most of the projectors that have been available for around the same time as the P1383 which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.
Very Long Service Life of Lamp
The shortest service life of lamp of 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the P1383 is 4,500h and the longest is 5,000h. When compared to other 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have checked, the Acer P1383's service life of lamp of 5,000 hours is one of the longest.
Very Bright Projector Brightness (economic Mode)
Across all the 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the P1383 the projector brightness (economic mode)s range from 2,400 ANSI lumens to 2,500 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness (economic mode) is 2,400 ANSI lumens. The Acer P1383 has one of the brightest projector brightness (economic mode)s (2,480 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age.
Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)
The quietest noise level (economic mode) of 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the P1383 is 28dB, the loudest is 30dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 29dB. At only 28 decibels, the Acer P1383 has a fairly quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the P1383.
3 Reasons Against
Only 100V AC Input Voltage
This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors of a similar age and type to it.
Does Not Support Wi-Fi
The Acer P1383 does not support wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors of this age and spec also do not support wi-Fi.
At 2.5 kilograms, the Acer P1383 is quite heavy compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for more than two years. 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the P1383 have weights of between 2kg and 2.7kg.
3 Other reasons to consider the Acer P1383
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when Acer released the P1383.
WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution
This data projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most commonly found projector native resolution on data projectors that have been available for more than two years.
Average Noise Level
At 31 decibels, the Acer P1383 has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the P1383.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 31dB noise level projectors currently available including the P1163[pl_1488785_price], or the X1263[pl_1488786_price] both from Acer which has better reviews.
Alternative data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Acer P1273B[plb_1569832_price] (32dB) which also has a higher rating.

Bought this because it was WXGA which gives the best resolution in wide screen which is what I wanted for Home Cinema use . A lot of the branded projectors at the budget end of the market are sold... Read more…
It was a great little projector for the price, but being picky as I am I couldn't help but notice the pronounced "rainbow" effect and poor black levels. If you're not someone that notices... Read more…
