Summary: Personal Experience If you're a first-time projector owner, you'll love this. It has all the necessary inputs: Hdmi, VGA, and composite (the red, white and yellow jacks). It also comes with all the cables(except Hdmi)and a remote. Unfortunately, there is no audio out, but that's not a problem if you're connecting to a PC or home theater system that connects to its own external speakers. I recommend that you check out the many videos on YouTube to see it in action.
Summary: great little projector, but havn't been able to get it working through my iphone as was prommised. It also played one Avi file but stri=uggled with another avi file. perhaps I just need to play with it a bit more.
Much better than expected, great value for the money.

Summary: Wanted a portable projector, didn't want to pay thousands or have to buy expensive bulbs. Looked at all the pico projectors and reviews. This was the best I found and I don't regret buying it at all. Have been projecting it onto a painted wall at 108" and love it. It would be even better viewed on a proper screen!
Summary: It's really great to own one especially if you are a movie addict as I am, its like watching a movie in a cinema. I compared this with samsung...this is far better at a lesser cost P26k vs. P22k, if you are buying this; don't succumb in getting a tripod screen, just make sure that you check the measurement of the recommended distance for a maximum viewable experience and it will be great even on walls!
Pros: Great for watching movies with cinematic effect, easy to operate, light weight and energy efficient
Cons: no output for sound when using usb playback, slow shot down that may take up to 1 min...too many sleepless nights due to movie marathon.
Summary: Personal Experience Pros: - 858x600 has excellent SD performance while maintaining acceptable HD performance. Xbox 360 @ 720p via HDMI is very crisp and is as readable is it was on my LCD TV - Brilliant colors! Pretty much kills all entry-level non-LED projectors I've seen. Yes, it's a massacre - Really good scaling. Set the projector on 'Full' aspect ratio, which is exactly the same as IMAX's 1.43:1 ratio.
Summary: Personal Experience The colors are vibrant and rich. The image is so nice. I really recommend it. Check out my YouTube videos about the projector. And this projector is small. Its a bright projector. I can see the image when bright lights are on but to get the best image is total darkness.
Summary: Personal Experience Previously owned and used the BenQ Joybee and Dell M109s portable LED projectors. Given that all three are around the same price, the Acer is exceptional. Great HDMI input, 200 lumen brightness, accurate color quality. On the bad side, the single speaker is quite quiet making the onboard video playing capability useless. Also, I seem to have slight issues getting the Acer E Management menu to work properly (probably a software bug).
Summary: Personal Experience Best buy for the money. excellent color reproduction and image quality. You can really enjoy your movie in a dark room. Only drawback is that the fan operation is bit noisy. Acer should rectify this.
