8 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

We checked the reviews from users and experts of hundreds of multimedia projectors to determine an average rating for each projector brand. On average data projectors made by Acer have good ratings from experts and users.

Supports 3D

The Acer X1285 supports 3D, as do most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the X1285.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D currently available including the P1285 ($371.11), or the P1185 ($262.99) both from Acer which is cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support 3D including the Acer X1385WH ($405.04).

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer X1285 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been around for more than a year.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the P1285 ($371.11), and the P1185 ($262.99) both from Acer which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Acer X1385WH ($405.04).
