9 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

The P1286 is one of the more economic to run latest multimedia projectors that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the P1286 is only £76.

Only Released Seven Months Ago

This Acer data projector is one of the most recent multimedia projectors to be released. This means it is likely to have better features than some of the older multimedia projectors.

Acer Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Multimedia projectors manufactured by Acer have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just multimedia projectors) and found that Acer also has good reviews across its entire range.

Supports 3D

The Acer P1286 supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the P1286 do not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors which support 3D currently available including the Optoma X340[plb_3495228_price] which has better reviews; or the Acer X125H[plb_3765481_price] which is cheaper.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D and we think the Optoma W345[plb_3862692_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer P1286 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for the last year also have a built-in speaker(s).

Other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider include cheaper projectors such as the X137WH[pl_3996108_price], or the X127H[pl_3996107_price] both from Acer.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Optoma W345[plb_3862692_price].

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

Most projectors that came out in the last year have between one and three HDMI ports quantitys, including the Acer P1286 which has two HDMI ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Uniformity

At 85 percent, the Acer P1286 has a fairly big uniformity compared to most of the other recently released multimedia projectors. The uniformitys of latest multimedia projectors range from 70% to 90%.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

The Acer P1286 has one of the quieter noise level (economic mode)s (only 28 decibels) amongst multimedia projectors of this age. Across all the latest similar spec data projectors the noise level (economic mode)s range from 20dB to 37dB.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Across all the similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the P1286 the weights range from 2.7g to 28kg, and the average weight is 6.4kg. The Acer P1286 is one of the lighter new similar spec multimedia projectors (only 2.4 kilograms) amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the P1286, the Acer P1286 does not support full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the HD27[pl_3787800_price], or the H114[pl_3404096_price] both from Optoma is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Acer P1286 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched in the last 12 months also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Only XGA (1024x768) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Acer P1286 is XGA (1024x768). That's 62% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) data projector, which is the most common resolution. The worst resolution of all data projectors that were released in the last 12 months is SVGA (800x600) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Very Low Vertical Synchronization (max)

At only 0.12 kilohertz, the Acer P1286 has a fairly low vertical synchronization (max) compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the P1286. The average vertical synchronization (max) of latest similar spec data projectors is 52kHz.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

Most multimedia projectors that were launched in the last 12 months have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, including the Acer P1286 which has one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

Recently released data projectors have optical zooms of between 1.1x and 1.7x, and the average optical zoom is 1.2x. With an optical zoom of only 1.1 times zoom factor, the Acer P1286 has a quite small optical zoom compared to most of the other latest multimedia projectors.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the Acer P1286

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Acer P1286 has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other recently released comparable spec multimedia projectors.

We compared all the other 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors to this data projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the Optoma X341[plb_3492834_price], and the Acer X125H[plb_3765481_price] is also worth considering.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the X127H[pl_3996107_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens), or the X137WH[pl_3996108_price] (3,700 ANSI lumens) both from Acer which is also cheaper.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 31 decibels, the Acer P1286 has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the P1286.

Other 31dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available which you might also want to look at include cheaper projectors such as the Acer X125H[plb_3765481_price].

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Optoma X341[plb_3492834_price] (29dB) which is also cheaper.
