9 Reasons For

Reasonably Priced

One Acer 240 owner wrote in their reviews that it was a bargain for the price. A. Boulton mentioned “Grabbed one of these as I wanted a cheap” in their Acer 240 review.

Robust

One customer reckoned that this projector was well made. A. Boulton mentioned on Amazon “Take a white-grey solid background for the layer beneath” but despite that they only rated the Acer 240 20 out of 100.

Good Picture Quality

Some Acer 240 reviewers mentioned in their reviews that it had good colour saturation. A. Boulton wrote “ONLY if they are bright colours” in their review but in spite of that they only gave the product a score of 20 out of 100. A. Boulton also mentioned “To check I wasn't going insane I plugged my old monitor and the same scene looked great - deep black colours, great contrast”.

Acer Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

Acer has good average reviews for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire data projector range compared to other brands.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Acer 240 supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years which do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including the Acer X1311[plb_1374828_price], the Panasonic PT-DZ13[plb_2000154_price], or the Epson 1975W[plb_3009713_price] which has better reviews.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Acer 240 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might want to consider including the Acer X1111[plb_1377014_price], the NEC M352[plb_2250187_price], or the Optoma ML550[plb_1947306_price] which has better reviews.

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Acer 240 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the weights range from 360g to 54kg. The Acer 240 is one of the lighter 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the 240 (only 2 kilograms) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The Acer 240 is quite narrow (only 264 millimeters) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the 240. The narrowest comparable spec projector that has been around for more than two years is 100mm wide and the widest is 970mm.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Difficult to Use

One Acer 240 reviewer said in their reviews that this projector was not easy to use. A. Boulton wrote in their review “There is no seperate control for brightness and backlight intensity, so I tried using the brightness control to try”.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Acer 240 does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors that have been available for a similar time to the 240 do have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to look at including the Acer X1311[plb_1374828_price], the Epson PowerLite 1222[plb_2225031_price], or the NEC NP-M282[plb_2338575_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Acer 240 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the 240 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to look at include the PowerLite 1222[pl_2225031_price], or the EB-X03[pl_2263795_price] both from Epson or the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price] which is also higher rated.

Quite Small Lamp Power

The lamp power of data projectors of this age and type range from 15W to 840W. At only 190 Watts, the Acer 240 has a fairly small lamp power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the 240.

3 Other reasons to consider the Acer 240

Released Over Four Years Ago

This data projector has been on the market for over four years.

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The Acer 240 has a maximum resolution of XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 2,700 ANSI lumens, the Acer 240 has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including the EB-X03[pl_2263795_price], or the VS330[pl_2272336_price] both from Epson or the Acer U5310[plb_1598190_price] which has better reviews.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the PT-TW250[pl_2404089_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the PT-LB280E[pl_3122603_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Panasonic or the Epson EX6220[plb_3076989_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

I bought this amazing monitor and I have no idea what the other review is about, it is amazing.

Reviewed 15 June 2015 by Joshua Dixon

Lewis is correct, I don't know what that one star rating is about, what a pleb.

Reviewed 13 August 2013 by A. Boulton

Grabbed one of these as I wanted a cheap but reasonable 1080p monitor to upgrade my 1680x1050 display. Immediately regretted it. The backlight bleed on this monitor is absolutely astonishing, and... Read more…
