9 Reasons For

Good User Reviews

The average user rating of this 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector is 83 out of 100 based on 8 user reviews.

Low Running Costs

The P1283 is one of the cheaper to run multimedia projectors of this type and age that we have assessed for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the P1283 is only £79.

Good Brand

Acer has good average ratings for its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Acer P1283 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago also support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Benq MS524[plb_2415516_price] which is cheaper.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Acer X1373[plb_2256532_price], or the Benq MX518[plb_1521707_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Benq MS524[plb_2415516_price] which is cheaper.

Other projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to look at include the Acer X1373[plb_2256532_price], or the Benq MX518[plb_1521707_price].

7 Reasons Against

Price Has Increased by £51.88

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors of this age and type do not support Full HD projection. The Acer P1283 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit
