7 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

13000:1 contrast ratio projectors manufactured by Acer have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that Acer also has good reviews across its entire range.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer P1276 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the P1276 also have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to look at including a cheaper multimedia projector such as the 720P[pl_1560816_price], or the MW820ST[pl_1552199_price] both from Benq or you might consider a higher rated multimedia projector such as the Benq MW526[plb_2415513_price].

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 800 ANSI lumens to 4,200 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 3,500 ANSI lumens, the Acer P1276 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Acer P1276 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the data projectors of this age and spec. This Acer projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port projector compared to most of the 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the P1276 which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

The biggest maximum digital resolution of the Acer P1276 is 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 20% more maximum digital resolution than the most frequently found maximum digital resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels.

This data projector's maximum digital resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) is in fact the best maximum digital resolution across all 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Across similar types of data projector the worst maximum digital resolution is 1600 x 1200 pixels.

Fairly Bright Brightness in Economy Mode

Across all the projectors of a comparable age and type to the P1276 the brightness in economy mode range from 2,000 ANSI lumens to 3,000 ANSI lumens. With a brightness in economy mode of 2,800 ANSI lumens, the Acer P1276 has a fairly bright brightness in economy mode compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the P1276.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Lamp Power

The average lamp power of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the P1276 is 210W. The Acer P1276 has a quite big lamp power (240 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the P1276 support 3D image projection, however the Acer P1276 does not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Benq MW526[plb_2415513_price]; or the 720P[pl_1560816_price], or the MW820ST[pl_1552199_price] both from Benq.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Acer P1276 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the P1276 also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the MW820ST[pl_1552199_price], or the MS512[pl_2290289_price] both from Benq which is also cheaper.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors of this age and type do not support WiFi connectivity. The Acer P1276 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

With a noise level of 34 decibels, the Acer P1276 has one of the louder noise levels amongst similar spec projectors of this age. Across all the multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the P1276 the noise levels range from 26dB to 40dB, and the average noise level is 32dB.

We compared all the other 34dB noise level multimedia projectors to this projector and we think the Benq 720P[plb_1560816_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the MX518[pl_1521707_price] (32dB and cheaper), or the MX850UST[pl_1454745_price] (33dB and cheaper) both from Benq.

The Acer P1276 has a fairly low number of colours (only 1.07 million) compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the P1276.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization

With a maximum vertical synchronization of only 0.12 kilohertz, the Acer P1276 has one of the lower maximum vertical synchronization amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The shortest lamp service life of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the P1276 is 2,500h and the longest is 20,000h. At only 3,500 hours, the Acer P1276 has a fairly short lamp service life compared to most of the other data projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of comparable spec data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the P1276 is 3,000h and the longest is 10,000h. With a service life of lamp in economic mode of only 5,000 hours, the Acer P1276 has one of the shorter service life of lamp in economic mode amongst projectors of this age.
