Performance

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of new similar spec multimedia projectors range from 22dB to 37dB, and the average noise level is 31dB. At only 30 decibels, the Acer P1285 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this data projector.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 30dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available including the Acer P1185 (£239.99) which is cheaper.

Energy

Average Running Costs

The P1285 is typical compared to the other 39 recently released 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the P1285 will cost £86 over 1 year to run.


Projector

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Acer P1285 has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other new projectors.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including the Acer P1185 (£239.99) which is cheaper.

If this 20000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the Acer X117H (£276.98) (3,600 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.
