On average projectors from Acer are rated 79 out of 100, which is in the top 58% of all data projector brands that we have assessed.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Acer X1285 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the X1285 also support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Acer X1385WH[plb_3021307_price], or the Optoma DW309[plb_3421167_price].
