2 Other reasons to consider the Acer K520

Released Over Three Years Ago

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

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,000 ANSI lumens, the Acer K520 has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

We compared all the other 2,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors to this data projector and we think the W7000+[pl_1403580_price], and the LX60ST[pl_1451093_price] both from Benq or the Acer H7531D[plb_1418806_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Epson EH-TW5910[plb_1717178_price] (2,100 ANSI lumens), the Acer H9501[plb_1554532_price] (2,100 ANSI lumens), or the Optoma HD50[plb_2578841_price] (2,200 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
