4 Reasons For

Acer Projectors Have Good Reviews

Acer has good average ratings for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire data projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer U5213 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the U5213 also have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to consider including the Acer H9505[plb_2246698_price] which is cheaper; or the Optoma X600[plb_2067505_price] which has better reviews.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Epson EB-1970W[plb_2399671_price].

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Acer U5213 does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the U5213 also do not support 3D image projection.

Other projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to consider include the Optoma X600[plb_2067505_price]; or the H9505[pl_2246698_price], or the U5313[pl_2126225_price] both from Acer.

The Acer U5213 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the U5213 also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support Full HD projection to this data projector and we think the Acer H9505[plb_2246698_price], or the Epson EB-1980WU[plb_2399669_price]; or the Benq W1300[plb_1998671_price] are also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec, the Acer U5213 does not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity which you might also want to consider including the Acer H9505[plb_2246698_price].
