4 Other reasons to consider the Acer P1283

OK Running Costs

The P1283 is typical compared to the other 11 comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years that we have assessed for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the P1283 is £79.

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Acer released the P1283.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Acer P1283 has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other 17000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the P1283.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Acer P1163.

If this 17000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Acer X1383 (£339.99) (3,100 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
