Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer X1173 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of its better review score, the Acer P1163.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Acer X1173 does not support full HD. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to this projector also do not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a full HD and we think the Acer P1383 (£460.18) is also worth considering.

3D-Ready

The Acer X1173 is 3D-ready. Most of the other 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to this projector also are 3D-ready.

Only SVGA (800x600) Resolution

The Acer X1173 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 77% less resolution than the most common projector native resolution of 1080p (1920x1080).

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Acer X1173 has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to this projector.

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

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the Acer X1383 (£339.99) (3,100 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
