Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer P1286 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors that were released in the last year.

Alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might also want to consider include the X135WH (£393.50), or the H5382BD (£410.10) both from Acer.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Acer P1286 does not support full HD. Most of the other data projectors that were launched around the same time as this multimedia projector do support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a full HD and we think the Acer H5383BD (£369.65) which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Ports & Interfaces

Does Not Have a DVI Port

Projector

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Acer P1286 has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for the last year.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think the P1186 (£303.57), and the X125H (£359.99) both from Acer which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the H5383BD (£369.65) (3,400 ANSI lumens and cheaper), the X1117H (£341.60) (3,600 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the X127 (3,600 ANSI lumens and cheaper) all from Acer.
