6 Reasons For

Just Released Six Months Ago

This Acer projector is one of the most recent projectors to be released. As such it is likely to use better technology than some of the older projectors.

Acer Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

We checked the user and expert reviews of hundreds of projectors to determine an average rating for each projector brand. On average projectors from Acer have good reviews from experts and owners.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Acer P1186 supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other new 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors which do not support Full HD projection.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including a cheaper projector such as the Acer P1285[plb_2934472_price], or the Optoma DX349[plb_3434769_price] or you might consider a higher rated projector such as the Optoma EH341[plb_3108586_price].

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other new comparable spec projectors, the Acer P1186 supports 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might also want to consider including the Acer P1285[plb_2934472_price], or the Optoma DX349[plb_3434769_price] which is cheaper.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Acer X1117H[plb_3883708_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out in the last 12 months, the Acer P1186 has a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might also want to look at including cheaper projectors such as the Acer P1285[plb_2934472_price], or the Optoma DX349[plb_3434769_price].

There are a number of other projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider including the Acer X1117H[plb_3883708_price].

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

With a service life of lamp in economic mode of 10,000 hours, the Acer P1186 has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors that came out in the last year. Recently released comparable spec projectors have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 4,000h and 24,000h.

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the P1186 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Acer P1186 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Acer P1186 is SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution.

This data projector's resolution (SVGA (800x600)) is actually the worst resolution amongst all latest 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

The best resolution amongst similar types of data projector is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Very Small Lamp Power

The Acer P1186 has one of the smaller lamp power (only 195 Watts) amongst 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. The smallest lamp power of comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out in the last 12 months is 190W, the biggest is 370W, and the average lamp power is 220W.

4 Other reasons to consider the Acer P1186

Average Running Costs

Based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the P1186 is £76, which is typical compared to the other 49 recently released data projectors.

Recent Price Increase of £0.01

In the last few days the P1186 has increased in price by £0.01.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Acer P1186 has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other latest projectors.

There are a number of alternative 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available that you might want to consider including the P1285[pl_2934472_price], or the X115H[pl_3762955_price] both from Acer or the Optoma W331[plb_3372582_price] which is cheaper.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Acer X1117H[plb_3883708_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens).

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 31 decibels, the Acer P1186 has a relatively typical noise level compared to most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for the last year.

We compared this projector to all the other 31dB noise level projectors and we think the Acer X115H[plb_3762955_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the Optoma EH341[plb_3108586_price] (29dB and higher rated).
