Projectors of this spec and age have weights of between 360g and 54kg. At only 1.3 kilograms, the Acer K335 is quite light compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.
2 Reasons Against
Very Dim Projector Brightness
The projector brightness of projectors of this type and age range from 300 ANSI lumens to 12,000 ANSI lumens. The Acer K335 has one of the dimmer projector brightness (only 1,000 ANSI lumen) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.
If this 10000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the W1400[pl_1731595_price] (2,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the MH680[pl_1998672_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the TH682[pl_2448398_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated) all from Benq.

3 Other reasons to consider the Acer K335
Released Over Three Years Ago
It was over three years ago when this 10000:1 contrast ratio projector was released.
1280 X 800 Graphics Resolution
The highest resolution supported by the Acer K335 is 1280 x 800. That's over three times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors of a comparable type and age to the K335.
Average Noise Level
At 33 decibels, the Acer K335 has a relatively standard noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type.
We compared all the other 33dB noise level projectors to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq W1400[plb_1731595_price] is also worth considering.
