Energy

Low Running Costs

The X1273 is one of the cheaper to run 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the X1273 will cost only £77 over 1 year to run.


Price

A Bit Expensive

One person reckoned that this projector was not good value for money. Jezzadarlo wrote on Amazon “Although it says 3D, finding a 3D dvd player that is actually compatible with it is a costly exercise” in their review however despite that they still gave it a rating of 4 stars.


Smart TV

Poor Connectivity

One customer who purchased it thought it was not good in terms of HDMI connections. Jezzadarlo wrote on Amazon in October last year “It has no HDMI connection”.


Reviews

Acer Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

Based on 820 owner and expert reviews (including 17 verified purchases), Acer has good reviews for its projectors.

It was January 2014 when Acer released the X1273.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer X1273 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to this projector.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think a cheaper projector such as the Benq MS524 (£263.58) or you might consider a better rated projector such as the Benq MS517 (£257.99) are also worth considering.

Alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to look at include the Benq MX525 (£280.53).

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Acer X1273 does not support full HD, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to this multimedia projector also do not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Benq TW526E (£319.98) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Projector

Average Projector Brightness

The Acer X1273 has a pretty average projector brightness (3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

Alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might want to consider include because of their better review scores, the MX819ST (£549.63), or the TW523 (£309) both from Benq.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Benq TW526E (£319.98) (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated); or the Benq MS524 (£263.58) (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
