6 Reasons For
Acer Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors
We checked the reviews from owners and experts of hundreds of multimedia projectors to determine an average rating for each projector manufacturer. On average Acer projectors have good reviews from experts and users.
The Acer X1385WH supports 3D, as do most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the X1385WH.
Alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D currently available which you might want to look at include the X1285[pl_3021306_price], or the P1285[pl_2934472_price] both from Acer which is cheaper; or the Optoma ML750ST[plb_3726225_price] which has better reviews.
Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
The Acer X1385WH has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the X1385WH.
We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think a cheaper data projector such as the X1285[pl_3021306_price], and the P1285[pl_2934472_price] both from Acer or you might consider a better rated data projector such as the Optoma ML750ST[plb_3726225_price] are also worth considering.
1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions
This projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA), which is typical of many data projectors of this type and age.
The weights of 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the X1385WH range from 420g to 12kg. The X1385WH is quite light (only 2 kilograms) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were released one year ago.
Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)
The X1385WH has a fairly quiet noise level (economic mode) (only 26 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the X1385WH have noise level (economic mode)s of between 22dB and 34dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 29dB.

5 Reasons Against
£84.99 Price Increase
The price of the X1385WH has increased by £84.99 in the last 59 days.
Does Not Support Full HD
The Acer X1385WH does not support full HD, unlike most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the X1385WH which support full HD.
Does Not Support Wi-Fi
Most projectors of this age and spec do not support wi-Fi. The Acer X1385WH is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.
Very Low RMS Rated Power
The X1385WH has a quite low RMS rated power (only 3 Watts) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for more than a year. The RMS rated powers of similar spec projectors that were released one year ago range from 1.5W to 20W.
+2 More reasons against
Quite Small Optical Zoom
Comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the X1385WH have optical zooms of between 1x and 1.6x. At only 1 times zoom factor, the Acer X1385WH has a quite small optical zoom compared to most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released one year ago.
5 Other reasons to consider the Acer X1385WH
Average Running Costs
Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the X1385WH is £81, which is typical compared to the other 24 data projectors of a similar age and type.
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this projector was released.
Average Projector Brightness
With a projector brightness of 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Acer X1385WH has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched more than a year ago.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the P1285[pl_2934472_price], or the X1285[pl_3021306_price] both from Acer which is cheaper.
+3 Other reasons
WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution
This projector has a projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most commonly found projector native resolution on data projectors of a comparable spec and age to it.
Average Noise Level
With a noise level of 30 decibels, the X1385WH has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the X1385WH.
There are a number of other 30dB noise level projectors currently available which you might want to consider including cheaper data projectors such as the P1285[pl_2934472_price], or the X1285[pl_3021306_price] both from Acer.
