5 Reasons For

Just Released Seven Months Ago

Acer only released the P1386W seven months ago.

Acer Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

Multimedia projectors built by Acer are some of the better multimedia projectors according to average reviews from experts and users.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the P1386W, the Acer P1386W supports 3D.

We compared all the other projectors which support 3D to this data projector and we think the Acer H6502BD[plb_3826679_price] which has better reviews; or the W331[pl_3372582_price], and the W340[pl_3452447_price] both from Optoma which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer P1386W has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for the last year also have a built-in speaker(s).

Other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to consider include a cheaper projector such as the W331[pl_3372582_price], or the W340[pl_3452447_price] both from Optoma or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the Acer H6502BD[plb_3826679_price].

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

At 5,000 hours, the Acer P1386W has a fairly long service life of lamp compared to most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the P1386W. The service life of lamps of newly released projectors range from 3,000h to 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 6,300h.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

£41.51 Price Increase

In the last week the P1386W has increased in price by £41.51.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Acer P1386W does not support full HD, unlike most of the other recently released projectors which support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the Acer H6502BD[plb_3826679_price]; or the Optoma W331[plb_3372582_price], or the Acer H5381BD[plb_3690290_price].

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other latest 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors, the Acer P1386W does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

The Acer P1386W has one of the louder noise levels (31 decibels) amongst projectors of this age. The average noise level of new 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors is 31dB.

Other 31dB noise level projectors currently available which you might also want to consider include cheaper multimedia projectors such as the X135WH[pl_3734655_price], or the H5382BD[pl_3758760_price] both from Acer.

Alternative projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Acer H6517ABD[plb_3734653_price] (31dB).

Very Small Bulb Power

Across all the similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the P1386W the bulb powers range from 190W to 370W. At only 195 Watts, the Acer P1386W has a quite small bulb power compared to most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the P1386W.

Chart Edit

Very Low Vertical Synchronization (max)

With a vertical synchronization (max) of only 0.12 kilohertz, the Acer P1386W has a fairly low vertical synchronization (max) compared to most of the other latest 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors. The vertical synchronization (max)s of similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the P1386W range from 0.12kHz to 120kHz.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

The Acer P1386W is a one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity projector.

4 Other reasons to consider the Acer P1386W

OK Running Costs

The average running cost of the P1386W is £76 over 1 year based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 44 latest 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,400 ANSI lumens, the Acer P1386W has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out in the last year.

We compared all the other 3,400 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the Optoma W340[plb_3452447_price], and the Acer X135WH[plb_3734655_price] is also worth considering.
