2 Other reasons to consider the Acer P1383W

Released Over Two Years Ago

This multimedia projector has been on the market for over two years.

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,800 ANSI lumens, the Acer P1383W has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

We compared this data projector to all the other 2,800 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 725HD[plb_2187388_price] is also worth considering.

If this Acer data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the HD141[pl_2415610_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the HD26[pl_2415611_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens) both from Optoma or the Sony VPL-EX255[plb_2403650_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
