Supports Full HD Projection

The Acer K520 supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the K520 which do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], the Optoma EH501[plb_1986510_price], and the Panasonic PTAE7000U[plb_1897671_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer K520 has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the K520 do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Acer H7531D[plb_1418806_price], the Viewsonic Pro10100-SD[plb_2207692_price], and the Epson PowerLite 4855WU[plb_1969833_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Acer K520 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the K520.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], the Sony VPL-HW40ES[plb_2298294_price], or the Epson PowerLite Pro G6550WU[plb_1919038_price] which has better reviews.

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of 20,000 hours, the Acer K520 has a fairly long lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the K520. Across all the projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the K520 the lamp service lives range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might also want to consider include the Elmo BOXi MP-350[plb_2578320_price], the LG PW700[plb_2778836_price], or the Optoma W305ST[plb_1726307_price].

2 Other reasons to consider the Acer K520

Released Over Three Years Ago

This data projector was released over three years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,000 ANSI lumens, the Acer K520 has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that have been available for more than two years.

We compared all the other 2,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this multimedia projector and we think the W7000+[pl_1403580_price], and the LX60ST[pl_1451093_price] both from Benq or the Acer H7531D[plb_1418806_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Acer H9501[plb_1554532_price] (2,100 ANSI lumens), the Epson EH-TW5910[plb_1717178_price] (2,100 ANSI lumens), or the Optoma HD50[plb_2578841_price] (2,200 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
