4 Reasons For

Acer Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Acer 17000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors have good reviews on average and across all projectors Acer is one of the better rated brands.

Supports 3D

Unlike most of the other data projectors of this age and spec which do not support 3D, the Acer X1173 supports 3D.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support 3D currently available including the Acer P1173 (£229.99) which has better reviews.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1280 x 768 (WXGA)|1280 x 800 (WXGA)|1440 x 900 (WXGA+)|1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+)|1920 x 1080 (HD 1080)|1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is typical of many 17000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The average weight of projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X1173 is 2.4kg, and the weights range from 2kg to 2.7kg. With a weight of only 2 kilograms, the Acer X1173 is one of the lighter data projectors of this age and spec amongst data projectors of this age.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Acer X1173 does not support full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the X1173 also do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Acer X1173 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other data projectors of this age and type also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Acer X1173 is SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years the worst resolution is VGA (640x480) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

The Acer X1173 is a one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity data projector. Most of the other 17000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the X1173 have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness (economic Mode)

At only 2,400 ANSI lumens, the Acer X1173 has a quite dim projector brightness (economic mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the X1173. Across all the 17000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago the projector brightness (economic mode)s range from 2,400 ANSI lumens to 2,500 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Running Costs Are High

The X1173 is in the most expensive 1% of all 11 projectors that were launched more than two years ago that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the X1173 will cost £85 over 1 year to run.

2 Other reasons to consider the Acer X1173

Released Over Three Years Ago

This projector was released over three years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Acer X1173 has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the X1173.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Acer P1163 which has better reviews.

If this Acer projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Acer X1383 (£339.99) (3,100 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
