10 Reasons For

Acceptable Noise Level

One Acer P1303 reviewer who bought it thought it was noisy. Four years ago Steveb wrote in their review “Reducing fan noise, which doesn't degrade the picture.I've ceiling mounted it” and scored it very highly. One customer who bought the product considered that it was quiet. Steveb mentioned on Amazon “The projector is quiet in normal operation, in my set up it's right above my head”.

Good for Ceiling Mounting

A number of Acer P1303 reviewers who purchased it wrote that it was good for ceiling mounting. Steveb rated the product as very good and wrote in their Acer P1303 review on Amazon “It automatically altered the picture to be correct for ceiling mounting”.

Reasonably Priced

Several customers who purchased this projector thought it was good value for money. Four years ago Steveb rated the Acer P1303 5 stars and mentioned in their review on Amazon “Great projector for the price”. Steveb also said “Amazon.I don't think you can fault this for the price to be honest”.

Good Picture Quality

One Acer P1303 owner who reviewed it considered that it had good colour saturation. Steveb said on Amazon “The colours are excellent for me”.

Good Size

One Acer P1303 reviewer who bought it considered that it was heavy and bulky. Steveb gave it a score of 5 stars and wrote in their review “It's not too big or heavy to carry”.

Good Brand

Acer is one of the superior projector manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and owners, and Acer also has good ratings for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Chart

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the P1303, the Acer P1303 has a built-in speaker.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the EB-W18, and the 1975W both from Epson or the Benq W710ST which has better reviews is also worth considering.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Uniformity

Data projectors of this spec and age have uniformities of between 0.9% and 100%, and the average uniformity is 83%. At 90 percent, the Acer P1303 has a quite big uniformity compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the P1303.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago have widths of between 100mm and 970mm. At only 269 millimeters, the Acer P1303 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the P1303.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Acer P1303 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the Benq W710ST , or the Optoma ML550 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Acer P1303 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the P1303 also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the NEC NP-M282 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the P1303 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Acer P1303 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Alternative data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to consider include the Benq W1500 which is also higher rated.

Quite Short Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of only 3,500 hours, the Acer P1303 has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the P1303. The shortest lamp service life of data projectors of a similar age and spec to the P1303 is 500h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 6,400h.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The average service life of lamp in economic mode of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the P1303 is 7,400h. The Acer P1303 has a quite short service life of lamp in economic mode (only 5,000 hours) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the P1303.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,100 ANSI lumens, the Acer P1303 has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the P1303.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the PowerLite 580 (3,200 ANSI lumens), the BrightLink 595WI+ (3,300 ANSI lumens), or the EB-595Wi (£1,242.99) (3,300 ANSI lumens) all from Epson which also has a higher rating.
