7 Reasons For

Good Brand

Acer is one of the superior projector manufacturers according to average expert and user review score data that we have collected for all projectors.

Supports 3D

The Acer X1278H supports 3D. Most of the other data projectors of this age and spec also support 3D.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer X1278H has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the X1278H.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This data projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1920 x 1200 (WUXGA), which is typical of many 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

Data projectors of this age and spec have projector brightnesss of between 800 ANSI lumens and 5,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 3,800 ANSI lumens, the Acer X1278H has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the X1278H.

Chart Edit

Quite High Vertical Synchronization (max)

With a vertical synchronization (max) of 120 kilohertz, the Acer X1278H has a fairly high vertical synchronization (max) compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for a similar time to the X1278H. Across all the 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the X1278H the vertical synchronization (max)s range from 0.12kHz to 120kHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Bulb Power

With a bulb power of 260 Watts, the Acer X1278H has a fairly big bulb power compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the X1278H. The average bulb power of comparable spec projectors that were released one year ago is 230W.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X1278H support full HD, however the Acer X1278H does not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Acer X1278H does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the X1278H also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Only WSVGA (1024x576) Projector Native Resolution

The Acer X1278H has a maximum resolution of WSVGA (1024x576). That's 72% less resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). The resolution of all comparable spec projectors that were launched more than a year ago ranges from nHD (640x360) (worst) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) (best).

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

Across all the projectors that have been available for more than a year the noise levels range from 26dB to 37dB. With a noise level of 32 decibels, the Acer X1278H has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the X1278H.

If you would consider a multimedia projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the P1185[pl_2899119_price] (30dB), or the X113P[pl_3043847_price] (31dB) both from Acer.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

The shortest service life of lamp of data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the X1278H is 2,500h, the longest is 35,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 6,800h. The Acer X1278H has a quite short service life of lamp (only 3,000 hours) compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Optical Zoom

The smallest optical zoom of 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the X1278H is 1x and the biggest is 1.6x. At only 1.1 times zoom factor, the Acer X1278H has a quite small optical zoom compared to most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the X1278H.
