Energy

Running Costs Are Low

Reviews

Good Brand

We checked 820 expert and owner reviews for Acer multimedia projectors and found that on average Acer has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Acer has good reviews specifically for its 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.


Video

Supports Full HD

The Acer P1186 supports full HD, as do most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as this data projector.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors which support full HD and we think the Acer X115 (£239.99) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support full HD including the Acer H5383BD (£369.65).

Projector

Only SVGA (800x600) Resolution

The highest resolution of the Acer P1186 is SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is in fact the worst resolution across all 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for the last year.

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

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The Acer P1186 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses (only 3,300 ANSI lumens) amongst 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Across all the recently released comparable spec multimedia projectors the projector brightnesses range from 300 ANSI lumens to 5,000 ANSI lumens.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including the P1185 (£239.99), or the P1285 (£290.45) both from Acer which is cheaper.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the H5383BD (£369.65) (3,400 ANSI lumens), the X1117H (£341.60) (3,600 ANSI lumens), or the X127 (3,600 ANSI lumens) all from Acer.
