6 Reasons For

Good Brand

Acer is one of the better rated data projector manufacturers according to average expert and user review score data that we have collected for all data projectors.

Supports 3D

The Acer X1278H supports 3D, as do most of the other projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer X1278H has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the X1278H.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This multimedia projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA)|1920 x 1200 (WUXGA), which is typical of many multimedia projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Quite High Vertical Synchronization (max)

The lowest vertical synchronization (max) of comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the X1278H is 0.1kHz, the highest is 120kHz, and the average vertical synchronization (max) is 35kHz. At 120 kilohertz, the Acer X1278H has a fairly high vertical synchronization (max) compared to most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the X1278H.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Bulb Power

The Acer X1278H has a quite big bulb power (260 Watts) compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age. The average bulb power of projectors of this age and spec is 240W, and the bulb powers range from 190W to 370W.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Acer X1278H does not support full HD, unlike most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the X1278H.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Optoma EH320UST 1080p Ultra Short Throw Projector which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec, the Acer X1278H does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Only WSVGA (1024x576) Projector Native Resolution

The Acer X1278H has a maximum resolution of WSVGA (1024x576). That's 72% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution. The resolution of all comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the X1278H ranges from nHD (640x360) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

At only 3,000 hours, the Acer X1278H has a fairly short service life of lamp compared to most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than a year ago. The average service life of lamp of projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the X1278H is 6,600h.

4 Other reasons to consider the Acer X1278H

Released Over a Year Ago

This 20000:1 contrast ratio projector was released over a year ago.

Running Costs Are OK

The X1278H has an average 1 year running cost of £106 based on average energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 24 multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago.

Average Projector Brightness

The Acer X1278H has a fairly average projector brightness (3,800 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the X1278H.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

The Acer X1278H has a relatively standard noise level (32 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the X1278H.

Data projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth looking at include the P1185 (£248.43) (30dB), or the X113P (£229.99) (31dB) both from Acer or the Viewsonic PJD6550LW (£498.05) (32dB).
