11 Reasons For

Acer Projectors Have Good Reviews

Projectors produced by Acer generally have good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Acer P1285 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the P1285 do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors which support Full HD projection and we think a cheaper multimedia projector such as the Optoma DX349[plb_3434769_price] or you might consider a higher rated multimedia projector such as the Optoma EH341[plb_3108586_price] are also worth considering.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection to this data projector and we think the Acer P1186[plb_3762954_price] is also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Acer P1285 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other new multimedia projectors also support 3D image projection.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Optoma DX349[plb_3434769_price] which is cheaper.

Alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to look at include the P1186[pl_3762954_price], or the X1117H[pl_3883708_price] both from Acer.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer P1285 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched in the last year.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Optoma DX349[plb_3434769_price].

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the P1186[pl_3762954_price], or the X1117H[pl_3883708_price] both from Acer is also worth considering.

With a lamp power in economic mode of only 6,000 Watts, the Acer P1285 has one of the dimmer lamp powers in economic mode amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

4 Other reasons to consider the Acer P1285
