8 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked the reviews from users and experts of hundreds of data projectors to determine an average rating for each projector manufacturer. On average projectors produced by Acer have good ratings from experts and owners.

Supports 3D

The Acer P1285 TCO supports 3D, as do most of the other latest multimedia projectors.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which support 3D currently available which you might also want to consider including cheaper projectors such as the Acer X1117H[plb_3883708_price].

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D and we think the Optoma GT760A[plb_3806982_price], or the Acer A1200[plb_3772354_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer P1285 TCO has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other recently released projectors.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to consider including the X135WH[pl_3734655_price], or the H5382BD[pl_3758760_price] both from Acer or the Optoma GT760A[plb_3806982_price].

This projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1920 x 1200 (WUXGA), which is the most commonly supported supported graphics resolutions on 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

The Acer P1285 TCO is a two HDMI ports quantity data projector.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for the last year only have one USB 2.0 ports quantity, however the P1285 TCO has two USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Light

Across all the 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for the last year the weights range from 110g to 40kg. The P1285 TCO is fairly light (only 2.3 kilograms) compared to most of the other recently released similar spec multimedia projectors.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

Across all the 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched in the last year the noise level (economic mode)s range from 26dB to 35dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 29dB. The P1285 TCO has a very quiet noise level (economic mode) (only 26 decibels) compared to most of the other new comparable spec multimedia projectors.

3 Reasons Against

Recent Price Increase of £69.52

Does Not Support Full HD

The P1285 TCO does not support full HD, unlike most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the P1285 TCO which support full HD.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider including the X135WH[pl_3734655_price], the A1200[pl_3772354_price], or the H5381BD[pl_3690290_price] all from Acer.
