14 Reasons For

Acer Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Acer 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good reviews on average and across all projectors Acer is one of the better rated manufacturers.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the U5520B, the Acer U5520B supports 3D image projection.

Other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Benq W1350[plb_2750779_price], or the NEC M322[plb_2268469_price].

There are a number of other data projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to look at including the Benq MH856UST[plb_2921325_price].

Supports Full HD Projection

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the U5520B, the Acer U5520B supports Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative data projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including a cheaper projector such as the Hitachi CP-TW2505[plb_3255162_price] or you might consider a higher rated projector such as the Benq W1350[plb_2750779_price].

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection which you might want to look at including the Benq MH856UST[plb_2921325_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer U5520B has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the U5520B.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the Benq W1350[plb_2750779_price] which has better reviews; or the Benq MX882UST[plb_3258682_price], and the Hitachi CP-TW2505[plb_3255162_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.
