~220 Hours on the unit, HDMI goes bad

Richard B., Newegg
31 March 2014
  • Summary: Buyer beware on Acer products. If you are out of warranty, you are completely out of luck and expect to spend $$$ just to reach a person to talk in their pay upfront post warranty support model.
  • Pros: Was a great little projector while it worked for it's short life.
  • Cons: HDMI input is dead after less than 250 hours on the unit. That's less than 1/10th of the life of a single bulb!!! Acer wants me to spend $200 on an out of warranty product repair. This is a somewhat known issue if you research online this model and Acer denies knowing or caring about it. NEver ag...

  • Summary: Personal Experience I purchased this during a black Friday sale on Newegg.com and I have been oh so happy with this projector! It is currently in my basement filling up one wall with a 120" picture and looks stellar! I didn't know when I bought it that it was 3D ready.

This thing works great

  • Pros: It's small, lamp replacements are just over $100 bucks, though I bought a spare I've not used it yet. At 3900 hours and going strong. Nice bright picture.
  • Cons: The audio crapped out after a month. I don't use it, but still you would expect it to last longer than that.

  • Summary: 1) Features—Which are useful and which are not? The unit comes with a remote, carrying case, remote, power cord, VGA cord, quick start guide, and CD with manual in the box. There is an HDMi port, VGA port, and an RCA port. I think there might also be an S-Video port.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, decent conectivity, high def (ish, 720p), 3d capable
  • Cons: Not super bright, some issues with long hdmi cables, narrow IR range for remote, no volume on remote.

  • Summary: I'll never buy Acer again.
  • Pros: Bright, vibrant colors
  • Cons: Dots, dots, dots all over the screen. A known manufacturer's defect for the first 2 years of production, but out of warranty service costs $400 - the cost of a new unit!

Great budget 3D projector

Nicole F., Newegg
27 February 2013
  • Summary: I am very pleased with this projector. I bought this one specifically for it's 3D and native HD features, and it has not disappointed. Mine is hooked up to an HTPC with an AMD 7770 video card and the picture looks great. 3D gaming (via Tridef software) is amazing . . . COD in 3D is simply awesome!
  • Pros: - Vibrant colors - Native 720p - Built-in Speaker
  • Cons: - No picture control (brightness, contrast, etc.) in 3D mode - Occassional RBE - Remote control is oddly shaped/designed and not backlit. - Proprietary mounting pattern (?)

I love this projector for the price!

Robert W., Newegg
11 February 2013
  • Summary: So I just want to clear something up that I keep reading and hearing in reviews throughout the web. Everyone is saying this projector shows the rainbow effect while viewing 2D content and that is not true.
  • Pros: - Bright, great colors, and the text is so clear I love it. My girlfriend snagged this for my birthday on black friday and we both feel it's been the best purchase we've ever made. - With the 2ms response time, this makes playing video games awesome! I love fighting games, so having no delay time...
  • Cons: - Black and white movies show the rainbow effect in extreme. I don't watch to many, so thats fine. But the movies that I have that are black and white are completely unbearable to watch. - I also don't like that Acer has made their own mount for this projector forcing you to buy their overpriced ...

  • Summary: The only reason why I have a 4 star review is the exeptional bang for buck this projector has if 3D is pulled out of the picture completely. I still don't know if it is my projector only that has this issue but with the fact this projector is almost completely none existent in Acer's eyes good luck...
  • Pros: Fantastic Picture! Exeptional quality. Shoots out an 85" picture at 11' back. Quiet. Even more so in Eco Mode. Small and light. Comes with carrying case. Very Bright even in Eco mode (2000 Lumins) of which I always run, it does extend bulb life. Bulb replacement is 230$ but still got quite some t...
  • Cons: Sadly the throw angle is almost 45 degrees! so I had to mount on the ceiling upsidedown not necessarily a con but rather informative. DLP LINK 3D DOES NOT WORK! I have a Xbox 360 where I had every intention to play 3D games. I bought the glasses and all and to set up the 3D is beyond vauge instru...

Forced it to 1080p 60hz with no issue

Anonymous, Newegg
9 January 2013
  • Summary: Sure its a cheap Acer that looks cheap, feels cheap when you hold it, and sounds cheap when you tap on the plastic but if you can catch this thing on sale its a steal. A 1080p (forced) projector for under $400 at these lumens? Yes please!
  • Pros: Used this for a home theater room and have not been disappointed. I got a good deal on black Friday (360) for a good entry level projector. Now I used this permanently connected to a computer and was able to force it up to 1080p and 60hz with no issues to date. Also maybe the post processing of t...
  • Cons: The remote is cheap and the mounting points are very tight together so BUY THE MOUNT TO FIT IT or be prepared to get very creative (like I did).
