9 Reasons For
Running Costs Are Low
The X123PH is in the cheapest 14% of all 37 multimedia projectors of this age and type that we have analysed for 1 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the X123PH is only £76.
13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors built by Acer have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors) and found that Acer also has good reviews across its entire range.
Supports Full HD Projection
The Acer X123PH supports Full HD projection. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than a year ago do not support Full HD projection.
We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the X112H (£249.99), or the X133 both from Acer.
Supports 3D Image Projection
Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X123PH, the Acer X123PH supports 3D image projection.
We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Benq MS514 is also worth considering.
Quite High Maximum Vertical Synchronization
13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the X123PH have maximum vertical synchronization of between 0.024kHz and 120kHz, and the average maximum vertical synchronization is 49kHz. The Acer X123PH has one of the higher maximum vertical synchronization (120 kilohertz) amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.
Fairly Long Lamp Service Life
The shortest lamp service life of similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the X123PH is 2,000h and the longest is 6,000h. With a lamp service life of 5,000 hours, the Acer X123PH has one of the longer lamp service lives amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.
+4 More reasons for
Very Quiet Noise Level
With a noise level of only 28 decibels, the Acer X123PH has one of the quieter noise levels amongst projectors of this age. The average noise level of data projectors of a similar type and age to the X123PH is 33dB.
Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth considering include the S1383WHne (£548.42) (28dB), the S1283e (£450.70) (28dB), or the S1283Hne (£503.99) (28dB) all from Acer.
Very Low Power Consumption During PowerSave
At only 197 Watts, the Acer X123PH has a fairly low power consumption during PowerSave compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the X123PH. The average power consumption during PowerSave of projectors that have been around for a similar time to the X123PH is 220W, and the power consumption during PowerSave range from 190W to 340W.
Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode
At only 28 decibels, the Acer X123PH has a quite quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out more than a year ago. The average noise level in economy mode of data projectors that came out around the same time as the X123PH is 30dB.
4 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
Most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the X123PH have a built-in speaker, however the Acer X123PH does not have a built-in speaker.
It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the MS514, or the MS524 (£315.34) both from Benq.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The Acer X123PH does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X123PH also do not support WiFi connectivity.
Very Dim Projector Brightness
Across all the projectors that have been available for more than a year the projector brightness range from 3,000 ANSI lumens to 4,200 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Acer X123PH has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and spec.
Alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available which you might also want to consider include the Acer U5220 (£669.99) which has a better Rating.
Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the S1283e (£450.70) (3,100 ANSI lumens), or the S1283Hne (£503.99) (3,100 ANSI lumens) both from Acer or the Benq MW571 (£485.06) (3,200 ANSI lumens).
Very Small Lamp Power
The Acer X123PH has one of the smaller lamp power (only 190 Watts) amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. The average lamp power of projectors of this age and type is 220W, and the lamp power range from 190W to 310W.

2 Other reasons to consider the Acer X123PH
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this data projector was released.
XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution
This data projector has a native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768), which is typical of many 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago.
We compared this data projector to all the other projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) and we think because of it's better review score, the Acer U5220 (£669.99) is also worth considering.
If the resolution of this multimedia projector is not high enough for you then you might also want to look at the Benq MX631ST (£454.97) (WXGA (1280x800)) which also has a higher Rating.

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Acer X123PHuses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.37 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 10 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
