8 Reasons For

Excellent Owner Reviews

People who bought this 10000:1 contrast ratio data projector rated this projector as superb on average.

Low Running Costs

The average running cost of the X1240 is only £85 over 1 year based on average energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the cheaper to run projectors of this spec and age.

Acer Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

We compared all the other projectors which support 3D to this projector and we think the Optoma ML550 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

In addition, this Acer projector support supported graphics resolutionss of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all multimedia projectors of this type and age the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

It was over three years ago when this data projector was released.

XGA (1024x768) Projector Native Resolution
