Reviews

Acer Has Good Projector Reviews

Based on 820 expert and user reviews, Acer has good ratings for its data projectors. Acer also has good ratings specifically within its 20000:1 contrast ratio projectors range compared to other manufacturers.


Other

Just Released Eight Months Ago

This multimedia projector has only been on the market for eight months. Newer projectors like this one are likely to have better features.


Energy

OK Running Costs

Based on average energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the P1185 is £82, which is typical compared to the other 39 projectors that came out in the last 12 months.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer P1185 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other new 20000:1 contrast ratio projectors also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think cheaper data projectors such as the Acer X115H (£199.99) is also worth considering.

It is worth considering alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the X117H (£276.99), or the X117H (£276.99) both from Acer.

Projector

Only SVGA (800x600) Resolution

The highest resolution of the Acer P1185 is SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most common resolution.

This data projector's resolution (SVGA (800x600)) is actually the worst resolution amongst all projectors that have been around for a comparable time to this projector.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is the best resolution amongst similar types of data projector.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Acer P1185 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to this data projector. The projector brightnesses of projectors that are a comparable age to this multimedia projector range from 300 ANSI lumens to 5,000 ANSI lumens.

If you want a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the X117H (£276.99) (3,600 ANSI lumens), or the X117H (£276.99) (3,600 ANSI lumens) both from Acer.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Acer P1185 does not support full HD, unlike most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for the last year which support full HD.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider including the Acer X115H (£199.99) which is also cheaper.
