8 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

On average Acer 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings as do all multimedia projectors produced by Acer.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the X1173, the Acer X1173 supports 3D image projection.

There are a number of other data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might also want to consider including the Acer P1173[plb_2123413_price] which has better reviews; or the Acer X1273[plb_2193441_price] which is cheaper.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer X1173 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other data projectors of this age and spec.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including a cheaper multimedia projector such as the Acer X1273[plb_2193441_price] or you might consider a higher scoring multimedia projector such as the Acer P1173[plb_2123413_price].

This projector supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 768 (WXGA)|1280 x 800 (WXGA)|1440 x 900 (WXGA+)|1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+)|1920 x 1080 (HD 1080)|1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is the most frequently supported graphics resolution on data projectors of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of projectors of a similar age and type to the X1173 range from 29dB to 32dB. With a noise level of only 30 decibels, the Acer X1173 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst projectors of this age.

Other data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Acer P1173[plb_2123413_price] (29dB) which also has a higher rating.

Quite High RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of 3 Watts, the Acer X1173 has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and spec. Across all the data projectors of this type and age the RMS rated power range from 2W to 3W, and the average RMS rated power is 2.3W.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Data projectors of this age and type have weights of between 2kg and 2.7kg, and the average weight is 2.3kg. The Acer X1173 is one of the lighter 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the X1173 (only 2 kilograms) amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Acer X1173 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the X1173, the Acer X1173 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The Acer X1173 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). The resolution of all projectors that are a comparable age to the X1173 ranges from VGA (640x480) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

Very Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

At only 2,400 ANSI lumens, the Acer X1173 has a fairly dim brightness in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the X1173. The average brightness in economy mode of projectors that are a similar age to the X1173 is 2,400 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Running Costs Are High

The X1173 is one of the less economic to run 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago that we have analysed for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the X1173 is £85.

2 Other reasons to consider the Acer X1173

Released Over Three Years Ago

This data projector has been on the market for over three years.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Acer X1173 has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

We compared this data projector to all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think a cheaper data projector such as the Acer X1273[plb_2193441_price] or you might consider a higher rated data projector such as the Acer P1173[plb_2123413_price] are also worth considering.
