Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The P1285 TCO has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to look at including cheaper data projectors such as the Acer X1278H (£378.97).

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the P1385W, or the X1378WH (£406.97) both from Acer.

Projector

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the P1285 TCO has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to this projector.

We compared all the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors to this projector and we think the Acer X1285 (£300) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Acer X1378WH (£406.97) (3,800 ANSI lumens).

Performance

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 30 decibels, the P1285 TCO has a fairly average noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 30dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Acer X1285 (£300).

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Optoma DS347 (£349) (29dB and cheaper).
