10 Reasons For
Very Low Running Costs
The X133 is one of the most economic to run projectors of this age and type that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the X133 is only £76.
Acer Has Good Data Projector Reviews
Based on 623 user and expert reviews, Acer has good ratings for its multimedia projectors. Acer also has good ratings specifically within its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors range compared to other manufacturers.
Supports Full HD Projection
Unlike most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the X133 which do not support Full HD projection, the Acer X133 supports Full HD projection.
Supports 3D Image Projection
The Acer X133 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years also support 3D image projection.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Benq MX522[plb_2029720_price] which has better reviews.
1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution
The highest resolution supported by the Acer X133 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by data projectors of this age and spec. This multimedia projector also supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA).
This data projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution across all 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the X133.
Across comparable types of data projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).
WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution
The Acer X133 has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768).
This projector's resolution (WXGA (1280x800)) is actually the best resolution amongst all projectors of a similar age and spec to the X133.
Amongst comparable types of projector the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600).
+5 More reasons for
Quite Quiet Noise Level
Across all the similar spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the X133 the noise levels range from 26dB to 40dB. With a noise level of only 31 decibels, the Acer X133 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age.
If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the P1283[pl_2189846_price] (31dB), or the X123[pl_2717080_price] (31dB) both from Acer.
1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution
The Acer X133 has a maximum maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 20% more maximum digital resolution than the most frequently found maximum digital resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels.
A 1920 x 1200 pixels maximum digital resolution is actually the best maximum digital resolution across all multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the X133.
Across similar types of data projector the worst maximum digital resolution is 1600 x 1200 pixels.
Fairly Long Lamp Service Life
At 5,000 hours, the Acer X133 has a fairly long lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the X133. Across all the projectors that were released more than two years ago the lamp service lives range from 2,500h to 20,000h.
100V AC Input Voltage
This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors of a comparable type and age to it.
3 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
Most of the other multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago have a built-in speaker, however the Acer X133 does not have a built-in speaker.
It is worth considering alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Benq MX522[plb_2029720_price] which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The Acer X133 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago also do not support WiFi connectivity.
Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port
The Acer X133 is a one VGA (D-Sub) port data projector. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.
