Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Acer S1383 does not support full HD. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to this multimedia projector also do not support full HD.

Projector

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Acer S1383 has one of the brighter projector brightnesses amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The projector brightnesses of data projectors of this spec and age range from 800 ANSI lumens to 4,200 ANSI lumens.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available including because of their better review scores, the MX525 (£280.53), the MS514, or the MW526 (£350.92) all from Benq.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the MW724 (£668.19) (3,700 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the MW769 (4,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Benq.
