6 Reasons For

Just Released Six Months Ago

Being released just six months ago, this Acer multimedia projector is likely to use more advanced technology.

Acer Has Good Data Projector Reviews

On average multimedia projectors produced by Acer are rated 79%, which is in the top 58% of all multimedia projector brands that we have analysed.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the A1500, the Acer A1500 supports 3D.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D currently available that you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Optoma EH341[plb_3108586_price].

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D and we think the Acer P1525[plb_3388092_price], or the Optoma X416[plb_3451180_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other recently released 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors, the Acer A1500 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Optoma EH341[plb_3108586_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might want to consider including the Acer P1525[plb_3388092_price], or the Optoma X416[plb_3451180_price].

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Acer A1500 is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for the last year the best resolution is WUXGA (1920x1200) and the worst is SVGA (800x600).

Chart Edit

Quite High Vertical Synchronization (max)

20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the A1500 have vertical synchronization (max)s of between 0.12kHz and 120kHz. At 120 kilohertz, the Acer A1500 has a quite high vertical synchronization (max) compared to most of the other recently released 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Recent Price Increase of £81.99

In the last 56 days the price of the A1500 has increased by £81.99.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Acer A1500 does not support full HD. Most of the other recently released 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors do support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support full HD including the Optoma EH341[plb_3108586_price] or the Acer H6517ABD[plb_3734653_price].

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other projectors that were launched in the last 12 months, the Acer A1500 does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the A1500 have projector brightnesss of between 300 ANSI lumens and 5,400 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Acer A1500 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other recently released 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Acer H6502BD[plb_3826679_price] (3,400 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.

2 Other reasons to consider the Acer A1500

OK Running Costs

The average 1 year running cost of the A1500 is £76 based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 44 recently released projectors.

Average Noise Level

At 31 decibels, the Acer A1500 has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the A1500.

There are a number of alternative 31dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available which you might also want to look at including cheaper projectors such as the H6517ABD[pl_3734653_price], or the A1300W[pl_3772355_price] both from Acer.

If you would consider a multimedia projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Acer P1623[plb_3768665_price] (31dB).
