11 Reasons For

Good Brand

Acer has good average ratings for its projectors as well as across its entire multimedia projector range compared to other brands.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Acer X1185 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than a year do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which support Full HD projection to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the VPL-VW350ES, and the VPL-VW320ES both from Sony or the LG PF1500G is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer X1185 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the X1185.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Acer X1185 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port projector.

Chart Edit

Two Audio in Ports

Most similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the X1185 have between one and three audio in ports, including the Acer X1185 which has two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

The Acer X1185 has a maximum maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 11% more maximum digital resolution than the most frequently found maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

This multimedia projector's maximum digital resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) is in fact the best maximum digital resolution across all projectors of a similar age and type to the X1185.

Across similar types of multimedia projector the worst maximum digital resolution is 1280 x 1024 pixels.

Quite High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

At 100 kilohertz, the Acer X1185 has a quite high maximum horizontal synchronization compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the X1185. Projectors that were released one year ago have maximum horizontal synchronization of between 72kHz and 110kHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 30 decibels, the Acer X1185 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for more than a year. The quietest noise level of projectors that were launched around the same time as the X1185 is 22dB, the loudest is 39dB, and the average noise level is 32dB.

Data projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the W310 (£321.99) (29dB), or the X402 (£499.00) (31dB) both from Optoma.

Narrow

With a width of only 308 millimeters, the Acer X1185 is one of the narrower projectors that came out around the same time as the X1185 amongst projectors of this age. The narrowest comparable spec projector that has been around for around the same time as the X1185 is 130mm wide, the widest is 510mm, and the average width is 350mm.

Chart Edit

Very Light

With a weight of only 2 kilograms, the Acer X1185 is one of the lighter projectors of a similar age and type to the X1185 amongst projectors of this age. Projectors that were released one year ago have weights of between 9.7g and 18kg.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The Acer X1185 has a quite quiet noise level in economy mode (only 26 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for more than a year. Projectors that were released one year ago have noise levels in economy mode of between 21dB and 35dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 29dB.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Acer X1185 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the X1185 do support 3D image projection.

Alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to consider include the Sony VPL-HW65ES which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Acer X1185 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the X1185 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Vivitek Qumi Q6 (£306.80) which also has a higher rating.

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The Acer X1185 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

A SVGA (800x600) native projector resolution is in fact the worst resolution across all data projectors that were released around the same time as the X1185.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) native projector resolution is the best resolution across comparable types of multimedia projector.

3 Other reasons to consider the Acer X1185

Running Costs Are OK

Based on average energy prices we estimate that the X1185 will cost £82 over 1 year to run, which is typical compared to the other 60 multimedia projectors of a similar type and age.

Released Over a Year Ago

This multimedia projector was released over a year ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Acer X1185 has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the X1185.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the IN112 (£199.98), or the IN119HD (£399.98) both from Infocus which has better reviews.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the Viewsonic PJD5151 (£233.17) (3,300 ANSI lumens).
