13 Reasons For

Acer Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Acer data projectors and also specifically for Acer 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Acer had good ratings compared to other brands.

Supports 3D

The Acer U5520B supports 3D, unlike most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the U5520B which do not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support 3D currently available including the Benq MH856UST[plb_2921325_price], or the NEC M403H[plb_3078395_price] which is cheaper.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D to this multimedia projector and we think the NEC U321H[plb_3095041_price] is also worth considering.

Supports Full HD

The Acer U5520B supports full HD, unlike most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the U5520B which do not support full HD.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support full HD to this projector and we think the Benq W3000[plb_3190084_price] which has better reviews; or the Benq MH856UST[plb_2921325_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the NEC U321H[plb_3095041_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the U5520B, the Acer U5520B has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Panasonic PT-VX605N[plb_3123717_price] which is cheaper; or the Benq W3000[plb_3190084_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

We compared all the other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson EB-1420Wi[plb_2369727_price] is also worth considering.

4 Other reasons to consider the Acer U5520B

Running Costs Are Average

The average running cost of the U5520B is £113 over 1 year based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 90 data projectors of a comparable age and type.

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Acer released the U5520B.

Average Noise Level

At 35 decibels, the Acer U5520B has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the U5520B.
