Acer X1240 DLP 3D Projector (Black) Quick Review

11 Reasons For

Excellent User Reviews

The average user rating of this Acer projector is brilliant based on 8 user reviews.

Low Running Costs

The average 1 year running cost of the X1240 is only £81 based on average energy prices, which makes it one of the more economic to run 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Acer Has Good Projector Reviews

Acer is one of the better rated projector brands according to average reviews from owners and experts, and Acer also has good ratings for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the X1240 which do not support Full HD projection, the Acer X1240 supports Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including the Epson 1975W[plb_3009713_price] which has better reviews.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Acer X1240 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this projector). In addition, this data projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the X1240 the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

3 Other reasons to consider the Acer X1240

Released Over Three Years Ago

This projector was released over three years ago.

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The Acer X1240 has a maximum resolution of XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).
