Good Product Quality

Some Acer S1383 owners who purchased it agreed that it was good quality. Three years ago expert website Pcmag.com wrote in their review of this projector “The Acer S1383WHne provides good text quality and loud audio in a short-throw projector geared mostly toward classroom use”.

Good Brand

13000:1 contrast ratio projectors produced by Acer have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that Acer also has good ratings across its entire range.

Supports 3D

The Acer S1383 supports 3D. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the S1383 also support 3D.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D and we think because of it's better review score, the MW820ST[pl_1552199_price], the MX819ST[pl_1552200_price], and the MX806[pl_2515298_price] all from Benq is also worth considering.

Other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to consider include the MW820ST[pl_1552199_price], or the MX819ST[pl_1552200_price] both from Benq or the Acer S1283[plb_2575478_price] which has better reviews.
