Acer Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors
On average Acer 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good reviews compared to other brands as do all projectors built by Acer.
Supports Full HD Projection
Unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age which do not support Full HD projection, the Acer S1283 supports Full HD projection.
Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the S1283, the Acer S1283 has a built-in speaker.
We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the MX661[pl_1968810_price], and the MS619[pl_2024148_price] both from Benq is also worth considering.
1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution
The Acer S1283 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than the most frequently found graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). In addition, this projector supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA).
This projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution across all 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the S1283.
Across similar types of projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).
Fairly Bright Projector Brightness
With a projector brightness of 3,100 ANSI lumens, the Acer S1283 has one of the brighter projector brightness amongst multimedia projectors of this age. The projector brightness of projectors of a similar type and age to the S1283 range from 800 ANSI lumens to 4,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,000 ANSI lumens.
Quite High Maximum Vertical Synchronization
The average maximum vertical synchronization of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the S1283 is 110kHz. At 120 kilohertz, the Acer S1283 has a quite high maximum vertical synchronization compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the S1283.
