6 Reasons For

Good High Def TV

One Acer U5220 owner who reviewed the Acer U5220 concluded that it was good at displaying high definition TV. Ican mentioned in their review of this projector in October last year “Amazing amazing hd projector, PS3, PC, Video files all look stunning” .

Acer Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

We checked 655 user and expert reviews for Acer data projectors and found that on average Acer has good ratings compared to other brands. We also found that Acer has good ratings specifically for its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the U5220, the Acer U5220 supports 3D.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors which support 3D currently available including cheaper data projectors such as the MW571 ($549.99), or the MW632ST ($548.99) both from Benq.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this data projector and we think the Benq MH684 is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer U5220 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the U5220 also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the MW571 ($549.99), the MW632ST ($548.99), or the MX631ST ($699.00) all from Benq.

Two Number of Built-In Speakerss

The Acer U5220 has more number of built-in speakerss than most of the projectors that have been available for around the same time as the U5220. Most of the 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the U5220 only have one number of built-in speakers, however this data projector has two number of built-in speakerss.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

Across all the 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than a year ago the noise level (economic mode)s range from 27dB to 34dB. With a noise level (economic mode) of only 27 decibels, the Acer U5220 has one of the quieter noise level (economic mode)s amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

10 Reasons Against

Not Good in Terms of Size

One Acer U5220 owner who purchased this projector concluded that it was not heavy and bulky. Mai Thanh Son wrote on Amazon “A bit bulky”.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the U5220 do not support full HD. The Acer U5220 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the MW571 ($549.99), or the MX631ST ($699.00) both from Benq.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Acer U5220 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors of this spec and age also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of multimedia projectors of this age and spec is 3,300 ANSI lumens. At only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Acer U5220 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the U5220.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the MW632ST ($548.99) (3,200 ANSI lumens), the MX631ST ($699.00) (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the MW571 ($549.99) (3,200 ANSI lumens) all from Benq which is also cheaper.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The average service life of lamp (economic mode) of data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the U5220 is 6,100h, and the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 3,500h to 10,000h. The Acer U5220 has a quite short service life of lamp (economic mode) (only 4,000 hours) compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the U5220.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

With a service life of lamp of only 3,000 hours, the Acer U5220 has one of the shorter service life of lamps amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. The average service life of lamp of similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the U5220 is 3,900h, and the service life of lamps range from 2,500h to 6,000h.

Chart Edit

Quite High Power Consumption (PowerSave)

The lowest power consumption (PowerSave) of data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the U5220 is 200W, the highest is 270W, and the average power consumption (PowerSave) is 220W. The Acer U5220 has a quite high power consumption (PowerSave) (235 Watts) compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the U5220.

Chart Edit

Very Heavy

The Acer U5220 is very heavy (5.5 kilograms) compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than a year. The average weight of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released one year ago is 3kg.

Chart Edit

Very Low Horizontal Synchronization (max)

Across all the similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the U5220 the horizontal synchronization (max)s range from 100kHz to 110kHz, and the average horizontal synchronization (max) is 100kHz. At only 100 kilohertz, the Acer U5220 has a fairly low horizontal synchronization (max) compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the U5220.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

Across all the similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the U5220 the optical zooms range from 1x to 1.1x, and the average optical zoom is 1.1x. The Acer U5220 has a fairly small optical zoom (only 1 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.
