8 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the P1286 will cost only £76 over 1 year to run, which makes it one of the cheaper to run latest projectors.

Just Released Six Months Ago

This multimedia projector is one of the latest 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

Based on 623 owner and expert reviews, Acer has good ratings for its projectors. Acer also has good ratings specifically within its projectors range compared to other brands.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other recently released similar spec projectors, the Acer P1286 supports 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Optoma W355 (£441.91).

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Benq TH530 (£544.50), or the Optoma W345 (£468.05).

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors that have been around for the last year, the Acer P1286 has a built-in speaker.

Other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to consider include the Viewsonic PJD7720HD (£465.60) which has better reviews; or the Optoma W355 (£441.91) which is cheaper.

There are a number of other projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to consider including the Benq TH530 (£544.50).

Two HDMI Ports

The Acer P1286 is a two HDMI port projector. Most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the P1286 have between one and four HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Uniformity

With a uniformity of 85 percent, the Acer P1286 has a fairly big uniformity compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the P1286. Across all the projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the P1286 the uniformities range from 70% to 90%.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

With a noise level in economy mode of only 28 decibels, the Acer P1286 has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for the last year. The noise levels in economy mode of projectors that were released around the same time as the P1286 range from 20dB to 37dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 29dB.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the P1286, the Acer P1286 does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Viewsonic PJD7720HD (£465.60) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the P1286, the Acer P1286 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Only XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Acer P1286 is XGA (1024x768). That's 62% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) data projector, which is the most common resolution. Across all projectors that were released around the same time as the P1286 the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization

At only 0.12 kilohertz, the Acer P1286 has a fairly low maximum vertical synchronization compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the P1286. The average maximum vertical synchronization of new projectors is 60kHz.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

Most projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the P1286 have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the Acer P1286 which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

The average optical zoom of projectors that have been around for around the same time as the P1286 is 1.6x, and the optical zooms range from 1.1x to 12x. At only 1.1 times zoom factor, the Acer P1286 has a quite small optical zoom compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the P1286.

2 Other reasons to consider the Acer P1286

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Acer P1286 has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the P1286.

Other 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available which you might want to consider include the Acer X125H (£384.94) which is cheaper.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the Acer X1385WH (£391.39) (3,400 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the Optoma W355 (£441.91) (3,600 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

Average Noise Level

At 31 decibels, the Acer P1286 has a relatively standard noise level compared to most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the P1286.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 31dB noise level projectors and we think the Acer X125H (£384.94) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you would consider a data projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Viewsonic PJD6250L (£509.98) (32dB).
