9 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Data Projector Reviews

Acer is one of the better rated multimedia projector brands according to average user and expert review score data that we have collected for all data projectors.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other data projectors that were released more than a year ago, the Acer P1285 supports 3D.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support 3D currently available including the Acer P1185[plb_2899119_price] which is cheaper.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this projector and we think the X1285[pl_3021306_price], or the X1385WH[pl_3021307_price] both from Acer is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the P1285, the Acer P1285 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Acer P1185[plb_2899119_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

There are a number of other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to look at including the X1285[pl_3021306_price], or the X1385WH[pl_3021307_price] both from Acer.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The Acer P1285 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys than most of the multimedia projectors that have been available for more than a year. Most of the 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released one year ago only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, however this Acer projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Two Component Video (YPbPr/YCbCr) Ins

Most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the P1285 only have one component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in, however the Acer P1285 has two component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) ins.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Lamp Power (economic Mode)

The dimmest lamp power (economic mode) of projectors that have been on the market for more than a year is 61W and the brightest is 10,000W. With a lamp power (economic mode) of 6,000 Watts, the Acer P1285 has one of the brighter lamp power (economic mode)s amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

The noise level (economic mode)s of similar spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the P1285 range from 22dB to 34dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 29dB. The Acer P1285 has one of the quieter noise level (economic mode)s (only 26 decibels) amongst 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Acer P1285 does not support full HD, unlike most of the other projectors of this age and type which support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the P1285, the Acer P1285 does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Very Small Bulb Power

The Acer P1285 has one of the smaller bulb powers (only 200 Watts) amongst 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the P1285 have bulb powers of between 190W and 370W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

Across all the 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the P1285 the optical zooms range from 1x to 1.6x. With an optical zoom of only 1.1 times zoom factor, the Acer P1285 has a quite small optical zoom compared to most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the P1285.

Chart Edit

4 Other reasons to consider the Acer P1285

OK Running Costs

Based on average energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the P1285 is £86, which is typical compared to the other 24 multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Acer P1285 has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the P1285.

Alternative 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available that you might want to look at include cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Acer P1185[plb_2899119_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

XGA (1024x768) Projector Native Resolution

The Acer P1285 has a maximum resolution of XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

At 30 decibels, the Acer P1285 has a relatively standard noise level compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

We compared this data projector to all the other 30dB noise level multimedia projectors and we think cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Acer P1185[plb_2899119_price] is also worth considering.

Other data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the X1285[pl_3021306_price] (30dB), or the X1385WH[pl_3021307_price] (30dB) both from Acer.
