7 Reasons For

Good 3D Picture Quality

A number of customers mentioned that it had a good 3D picture quality. Jim Cameron gave this projector a rating of 5 stars and he said “A brilliant 3D Projector” in his review. Jim Cameron also said “Simply connect up your 3D blu ray player, set the projection mode to 3D DLP Ready”.

Easy to Use

One customer who purchased the Acer P1163 said that it was easy to setup. Two years ago Jim Cameron mentioned “It is also incredibly easy to set up” in his review.

Good High Def TV

One person who reviewed this projector concluded that it was good at displaying high definition TV. Two years ago Jim Cameron wrote in his review of this projector on Amazon “Contrary to many reviews it is a full cinematic projector capable of 1080p HD”.

Reasonably Priced

One Acer P1163 reviewer said in their reviews that it was good value for money.

Acer Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Acer multimedia projectors and also specifically for Acer 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Acer had good ratings.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer P1163 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the P1163.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Acer H5380[plb_2123447_price] which has better reviews.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the P1173[pl_2123413_price], or the X1383[pl_2194099_price] both from Acer is also worth considering.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is typical of many multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as it.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the other 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the P1163 support 3D image projection, however the Acer P1163 does not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Acer H5380[plb_2123447_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Acer P1163 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the P1163 also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Acer P1163 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the P1163 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The Acer P1163 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). The resolution of all projectors that have been around for more than two years ranges from VGA (640x480) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Resolution

The biggest native resolution of the Acer P1163 is SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less native resolution than the most common native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

A SVGA (800x600) native resolution is in fact the worst native resolution amongst all projectors of this spec and age.

The best native resolution amongst similar types of projector is 1080p (1920x1080).

Very Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization

The lowest maximum vertical synchronization of multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the P1163 is 0.12kHz, the highest is 120kHz, and the average maximum vertical synchronization is 36kHz. With a maximum vertical synchronization of only 0.12 kilohertz, the Acer P1163 has a fairly low maximum vertical synchronization compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the P1163.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The average lamp service life of data projectors of a similar spec and age to the P1163 is 4,800h. At only 4,500 hours, the Acer P1163 has a fairly short lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the P1163.

Chart Edit

Only Two VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Acer P1163 is a two VGA (D-Sub) port projector. Most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the P1163 have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

4 Other reasons to consider the Acer P1163

OK Running Costs

Based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the P1163 will cost £81 over 1 year to run, which is typical compared to the other 10 projectors of a similar age and type.

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Acer released the P1163.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Acer P1163 has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years.

If you would prefer a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Acer X1383[plb_2194099_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens).

Average Noise Level

At 31 decibels, the Acer P1163 has a relatively typical noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the P1163.
