8 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Projector Reviews

Acer multimedia projectors have good ratings on average and across all data projectors Acer is one of the superior brands.

Supports Full HD

The Acer X1185 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the X1185 do not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors which support full HD and we think the VPL-VW350ES, and the VPL-HW65ES both from Sony which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other projectors of this spec and age, the Acer X1185 has a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic PJD5550LWS.

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

Most multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, including the Acer X1185 which has three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Two Audio (L,R) Ins

Most projectors of this age and spec have between one and three audio (L,R) ins, including the Acer X1185 which has two audio (L,R) ins.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Horizontal Synchronization (max)

With a horizontal synchronization (max) of 100 kilohertz, the Acer X1185 has one of the higher horizontal synchronization (max)s amongst projectors of this age. The horizontal synchronization (max)s of multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the X1185 range from 72kHz to 110kHz, and the average horizontal synchronization (max) is 93kHz.

Chart Edit

Very Light

At only 2 kilograms, the Acer X1185 is quite light compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the X1185. Across all the similar spec projectors that were released one year ago the weights range from 9.7g to 18kg, and the average weight is 4.3kg.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

At only 26 decibels, the Acer X1185 has a fairly quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the X1185. Across all the multimedia projectors that were released one year ago the noise level (economic mode)s range from 21dB to 36dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 29dB.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The Acer X1185 does not support 3D, unlike most of the other projectors of this type and age.

There are a number of other projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to consider including the Sony VPL-VW600ES which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the X1185 do not support wi-Fi. The Acer X1185 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the Vivitek Qumi Q6 (£324.28) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The Acer X1185 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

This projector's resolution (SVGA (800x600)) is actually the worst resolution amongst all multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the X1185.

The best resolution across comparable types of projector is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Only One Number of Built-In Speakers

The Acer X1185 is a one number of built-in speakers projector. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the X1185 have one number of built-in speakers.

4 Other reasons to consider the Acer X1185

Running Costs Are OK

Based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the X1185 will cost £82 over 1 year to run, which is typical compared to the other 63 projectors of a comparable age and type.

Released Over a Year Ago

This Acer projector has been on the market for over a year.

Average Projector Brightness

The Acer X1185 has a pretty typical projector brightness (3,200 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Infocus IN119HD (£439.98).

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Viewsonic PJD5151 (£188.00) (3,300 ANSI lumens).

Average Noise Level

At 30 decibels, the Acer X1185 has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the X1185.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth looking at include the X112H (£229.99) (30dB), or the P1385WB (30dB) both from Acer.
