Defective twice so far

Chris M., Newegg
11 March 2015
  • Summary: Acer really needs to start doing quality control on their products. I have to RMA Acer products a lot but this is the first time I've ever had to RMA an item of any brand twice.
  • Pros: Seems like it would be good quality if I could actually get a functioning example
  • Cons: I've had to RMA this twice now. The first one arrived with a large scratch of some kind on an inner lens so there was a large black blur in the middle of the screen and when focused on, it was a large visible black scratch (not dead pixels). This second one arrived with a faulty fan (same issue as one of the other customers) - after a few minutes of being on it generates the "Fan Fail" message before powering off. It's incredibly frustrating to receive a defective ver...

Was great at first

Lance B., Newegg
15 September 2014
  • Pros: 1080p
  • Cons: I've used this projector probably once a week for the last four months. It worked great and I loved everything about it. All of a sudden the projector flickers like crazy. I probably see every 1 in 30 frames displayed. Completely useless now. It's like watching a strobe light go on and off. I'm trying to RMA through Acer, but I'm finding out their warrenty process is a joke. Half of the links produce a 404 page. This model number isn't even in their dropdown list for ...

Nice projector

Mark S., Newegg
11 July 2014
  • Summary: I bought 3d DLP glasses a week before I bought the projector. Glad I did so I didn't have to wait on them.
  • Pros: Trying to decide on this P1500 Projector or go for the other Acer 5610BD. I read a review where these two projectors were basically the same quality except the 5610 has more ports and a quick 3d button and 2d to 3d conversion. I decided to go with this projector for the 3 yr warranty. Too expensive not to have a warranty. Going through the menu was not hard to put this in 3d mode. I used my 3d blu-ray player and the quality is amazing. If you have a letterbox movie, c...
  • Cons: Only owned this for one day but I plan on giving it a workout over the weekend. Ordered this on a Thursday and received it on Friday. I do not hear any noise from the fan and I run it on eco mode. Just a slight change from eco to normail mode.

Bright and sharp

wai l., Newegg

  • Pros: Works well and has a built in speaker. The fan is fairly quiet. I see no rainbow effect yet. Perfect unit for big projection screen. The case is very cheap but I won't be using it much anyway.
  • Cons: None yet

Beautiful Image, Great Color

David G., Newegg
14 May 2014
  • Pros: The build quality is superb! This Projector is bright, Throws a nice large image, Decent contrast, if your source material is HD it looks amazing, you can definitely tell when you are watching hd vs sd but the scaling is decent as well. Fast refresh rate is nice. honestly it has just the right amount of inputs. I am running one 30 foot HDMI and one 30 foot VGA cord across the room. All of my souces are HD and all signals are going through a video scaler so have one se...

Great value, high quality, small footprint

Guy S., Newegg
14 May 2014
  • Summary: I was skeptical buying this projector but I'm very happy that I did. The quality is better than I had expected. I travel and do software demonstrations all the time. So far, this has been a great projector. Small and light, the casing is plastic but more sturdy than I had expected. Noise level is low. Picture quality is very good. While it doesn't have all of the bells and whistles that other projectors have, it has everything I need to either connect via HDMI or VGA.
  • Pros: For 1920x1080 resolution, one of the lightest and most economical models available. Works as advertised. Nice and bright, sharp picture. Easy setup. Better quality than expected for price.
  • Cons: Minor con: The tabletop height adjustment is done via twisting. Not spring loaded like other projectors. Slows setup slightly. The carrying case included has limited padding.

  • Pros: COLORS ARE FREAKING GREAT. 1080p and 3d yes sir very happy with this beautiful image. my wife first response to it was it looks better than our tv.. my image is 108 inches and love it so far
