6 Reasons For
Acer Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews
We calculated the average reviews for all Acer multimedia projectors and specifically for Acer 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors and found that in both cases Acer had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.
Supports Full HD Projection
Unlike most of the other similar spec projectors that were released more than a year ago which do not support Full HD projection, the Acer S1283 supports Full HD projection.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Acer S1283 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the S1283 also have a built-in speaker.
1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution
The highest resolution supported by the Acer S1283 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.
This projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution amongst all comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the S1283.
The worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).
Very High Maximum Vertical Synchronization
Projectors of a similar age and spec to the S1283 have maximum vertical synchronization of between 0.024kHz and 120kHz, and the average maximum vertical synchronization is 49kHz. With a maximum vertical synchronization of 120 kilohertz, the Acer S1283 has a very high maximum vertical synchronization compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age.
Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports
The Acer S1283 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port projector.

3 Reasons Against
Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
The Acer S1283 does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the S1283 which support 3D image projection.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The Acer S1283 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the S1283 also do not support WiFi connectivity.
Very Low Number of Colours
With a number of colours of only 1.07 million, the Acer S1283 has one of the lower numbers of colours amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The average number of colours of 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year is 910M.
