9 Reasons For

Reasonably Priced

One person who purchased the Acer 240 concluded that it was a bargain for the price. A. Boulton wrote in their review of the Acer 240 four years ago “Grabbed one of these as I wanted a cheap” however they rated it 1 stars.

Robust

One customer thought the product was well made. A. Boulton said in their review of the Acer 240 “Take a white-grey solid background for the layer beneath” .

Good Picture Quality

Two Acer 240 reviewers considered that the Acer 240 had good colour saturation. A. Boulton said “ONLY if they are bright colours” in their review. A. Boulton also mentioned “To check I wasn't going insane I plugged my old monitor and the same scene looked great - deep black colours, great contrast”.

Acer Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

Acer has good average reviews for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire multimedia projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Full HD

The Acer 240 supports full HD, unlike most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the 240 which do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support full HD currently available including because of it's better review score, the Acer X1311[plb_1374828_price], the Panasonic PT-DS12[plb_2000150_price], or the NEC M362[plb_2268470_price].

Supports 3D

Unlike most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the 240 which do not support 3D, the Acer 240 supports 3D.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative data projectors which support 3D currently available including the Acer X1111[plb_1377014_price], the Epson EX6220[plb_3076989_price], or the NEC M362[plb_2268470_price] which has better reviews.

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

Most data projectors of a similar age and type to the 240 have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, including the Acer 240 which has three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Quite High Number of Colours

The lowest number of colours of multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago is 1M, the highest is 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 590M. The Acer 240 has one of the higher numbers of colours (1,070 million) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Across all the projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the weights range from 360g to 54kg, and the average weight is 4.7kg. At only 2 kilograms, the Acer 240 is fairly light compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the 240.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Difficult to Use

One customer who bought the product thought it was not easy to use. A. Boulton mentioned on Amazon four years ago “There is no seperate control for brightness and backlight intensity, so I tried using the brightness control to try” in their review of this projector.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer 240 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the 240.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Acer X1311[plb_1374828_price], the Epson PowerLite 97[plb_2225046_price], or the NEC NP-M282[plb_2338575_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Acer 240 does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the 240 also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the EB-X18[pl_2017449_price], or the PowerLite 1222[pl_2225031_price] both from Epson or the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Small Bulb Power

At only 190 Watts, the Acer 240 has a quite small bulb power compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years. The average bulb power of projectors of this type and age is 240W.

3 Other reasons to consider the Acer 240

Released Over Four Years Ago

This data projector has been on the market for over four years.

XGA (1024x768) Projector Native Resolution

The Acer 240 has a maximum resolution of XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

The Acer 240 has a pretty typical projector brightness (2,700 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

We compared all the other 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the EB-S17[pl_2017452_price], the PowerLite 575W[pl_2175975_price], and the EB-X20[pl_2017453_price] all from Epson is also worth considering.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the PT-TW250[pl_2404089_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the PT-LB280E[pl_3122603_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Panasonic or the Benq TH682[plb_2448398_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
