The Acer X1278H supports 3D image projection. Most of the other new 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors also support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the Optoma EH341[plb_3108586_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the P1285 TCO[pl_3421463_price], or the X1378WH[pl_3756877_price] both from Acer is also worth considering.

The Acer X1278H has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors that have been around for a similar time to the X1278H also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Optoma EH341[plb_3108586_price] is also worth considering.
