6 Reasons For

Just Released Seven Months Ago

The P1386W was only relased by Acer seven months ago.

Acer Projectors Have Good Reviews

Data projectors built by Acer generally have good reviews.

Supports 3D

The Acer P1386W supports 3D. Most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched in the last 12 months also support 3D.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other multimedia projectors which support 3D currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Acer A1200[plb_3772354_price].

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support 3D including the W340[pl_3452447_price], or the GT760A[pl_3806982_price] both from Optoma.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer P1386W has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the P1386W also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think the A1200[pl_3772354_price], and the H5382BD[pl_3758760_price] both from Acer which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to look at include the Optoma W340[plb_3452447_price].

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

The Acer P1386W has one of the longer service life of lamps (5,000 hours) amongst projectors of this age. The service life of lamps of projectors that were released in the last 12 months range from 3,000h to 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 6,200h.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

At only 28 decibels, the Acer P1386W has a fairly quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the P1386W. The noise level (economic mode)s of 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the P1386W range from 26dB to 35dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 29dB.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Acer P1386W does not support full HD. Most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched in the last year also do not support full HD.

It is worth considering alternative data projectors which also support full HD including the Acer H6502BD[plb_3826679_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released in the last 12 months do not support wi-Fi. The Acer P1386W is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

With a noise level of 31 decibels, the Acer P1386W has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the P1386W. Across all the newly released projectors the noise levels range from 22dB to 35dB.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 31dB noise level projectors currently available including cheaper projectors such as the X135WH[pl_3734655_price], the H5382BD[pl_3758760_price], or the A1200[pl_3772354_price] all from Acer.

Quite Small Bulb Power

The average bulb power of data projectors that are a comparable age to the P1386W is 230W. When compared to other newly released 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that we have assessed the bulb power of, the Acer P1386W's bulb power of only 195 Watts is one of the smallest.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Optical Zoom

The average optical zoom of new 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors is 1.3x, and the optical zooms range from 1.1x to 2x. At only 1.1 times zoom factor, the Acer P1386W has a quite small optical zoom compared to most of the other new comparable spec multimedia projectors.
