We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson EB-W03[plb_2148096_price], the Benq W1070[plb_1522360_price], and the Acer K137[plb_2190933_price] is also worth considering.

7 Reasons Against

Unacceptable Noise Level

One Acer K135 reviewer who bought it considered that it was not noisy. Expert website Macworld.com.au mentioned three years ago “Is a little noisy for intimate rooms”.

Poor Battery Life

One Acer K135 reviewer who bought the product considered that it did not have a good battery life. Businesstoday.intoday.in said in their Acer K135 review “No builtin battery”.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the EB-S17[pl_2017452_price] (2,700 ANSI lumens), or the EB-X20[pl_2017453_price] (2,700 ANSI lumens) both from Epson or the Acer K137[plb_2190933_price] (700 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection including the K137[pl_2190933_price], or the P1510[pl_2284610_price] both from Acer or the Benq W1070[plb_1522360_price] which also has a higher rating.
