Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer X1140 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to this multimedia projector.

Alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider include the NEC NP-M322X which has better reviews.

Projector

Only SVGA (800x600) Resolution

The Acer X1140 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is actually the worst resolution across all data projectors of a similar age and spec to this projector.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is the best resolution across comparable types of multimedia projector.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The Acer X1140 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses (only 2,700 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec multimedia projectors of this age. The dimmest projector brightness of similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this data projector is 300 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 20,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Panasonic PT-LB280E (£414.88) (2,800 ANSI lumens).

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Acer X1140 does not support full HD. Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to this data projector also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the Epson Home Cinema 600 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

3D-Ready

The Acer X1140 is 3D-ready. Most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to this multimedia projector also are 3D-ready.

Lamps

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp

Projectors of this type and age have service life of lamps of between 500h and 30,000h. When compared to other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago, the Acer X1140's service life of lamp of only 500 hours is one of the shortest.

Performance

Very Quiet Noise Level

The Acer X1140 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 30 decibels) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The average noise level of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as this multimedia projector is 36dB, and the noise levels range from 28dB to 49dB.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the NEC M302 (£772.10) (30dB).
