10 Reasons For

Acer Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

On average data projectors made by Acer are rated 79 out of 100, which is in the top 58% of all projector manufacturers that we have assessed.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The P1285 TCO supports 3D image projection. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the P1285 TCO also support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Acer X1278H[plb_3419096_price] which is cheaper.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Acer X1378WH[plb_3756877_price], or the Optoma ML750ST[plb_3726225_price] is also worth considering.
