9 Reasons For

Good 3D Picture Quality

Some customers said in their reviews that it had a good 3D picture quality. Jim Cameron wrote in his Acer P1163 review “A brilliant 3D Projector”. Jim Cameron also said “Simply connect up your 3D blu ray player, set the projection mode to 3D DLP Ready”.

Easy to Use

One person said in their reviews that it was easy to setup. Jim Cameron said on Amazon “It is also incredibly easy to set up” in his review of the Acer P1163 and gave it a rating of 5 stars.

Good High Def TV

One Acer P1163 owner concluded that this projector was good at displaying high definition TV. Jim Cameron scored it very highly and he said “Contrary to many reviews it is a full cinematic projector capable of 1080p HD” in his review of this projector.

Reasonably Priced

One person who purchased this projector considered that it was good value for money.

Good Brand

17000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors manufactured by Acer have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 17000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors) and found that Acer also has good ratings across its entire range.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer P1163 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the P1163.

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might also want to look at include the Acer H5380[plb_2123447_price] which has better reviews.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the P1173[pl_2123413_price], or the X1383[pl_2194099_price] both from Acer.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Most projectors that are a similar age to the P1163 do not support 3D. The Acer P1163 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also support 3D including the Acer H5380[plb_2123447_price] which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The Acer P1163 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most common resolution. The best resolution of all projectors of this type and age is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) and the worst is VGA (640x480).

Chart Edit
