Broke After 10 Uses

Rocky, Amazon
11 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought one of these projectors in March, and it has failed to turn on as of August of the same year. In the 5 months that I have owned it, I have used it maybe 10 times. Paying 17 bucks to send it into repair with Acer now. I have always taken care of this projector, never dropped it or anything.

Acer X1261P Projector

Paul N., Newegg
1 July 2013
  • Pros: Affordable
  • Cons: Uses a 3 PIN FEMALE PS2 style jack for RS 232. Impossible to use. Hours on the phone w/ ACER. They didn't have a clue either.

Frank F., Newegg
25 April 2013
  • Summary: I am revisiting my review 2 years after purchase with my experiences. This was a fantastic projector for the price and served me well for almost exactly 2 years, a good investment.
  • Pros: Price! Brightness & Contrast Ratio. Small, Quiet. Decent resolution and supports 1600x1200
  • Cons: No air filters! Moving parts (fans and color wheel) seem low quality

Powerful!

  • Summary: I have used the Acer X1261P projector for our home theatre on a 12'(feet) diagonal screen at up to 1080p for a little over 2 years now, and I really think that it is a great value. The Brightness is more than sufficient, the Colors are brilliant and the clearity it fantastic.

Excellent

Richard E., Newegg
5 December 2012
  • Summary: If your on a low budget like me, this is your projector. It does the job and quality is great. If your looking for long life hrs on the bulb and even better quailty, save up and buy one that will cost you over 1,000.
  • Pros: WOW! Can't beat the black friday price on this bad boy. Pretty Decent actually for what I use it for as a theater system on a 100" screen.
  • Cons: Like any projector. It throws off heat, almost could use it as a heater for the winter. If your like everyone else who wants to use the ECO setting to save an extra 1,000 hrs on the bulb, your wasting your time. You may cut the fan noise down and its pretty quite but your sacrificing the entire t...

First Projector Love

Macy C., Newegg
26 November 2012
  • Pros: Love the price and quality. It was the best quarter-life crisis buy. I have it hooked up to my xbox and speakers and it impresses anyone who sees it. I would definitely recommend this model to anyone.
  • Cons: My only con would be the fact that it is almost completely silent. Which i love and hate. Being it silent, there aren't fans inside kicking that hot air out. Which runs the risk of overheating and damaging itself. I've only had one emergency shut down (after an all day gaming session with friends...

Excellent Picture

John G., Newegg
3 November 2012
  • Summary: I love this machine and have over 1000 hours on both units. Paired with a Da-Lite screen and a decent HTPC media machine your face will fill with joy. I built my own HTPC machine.
  • Pros: I actually bought the little brother to this:XP1161P3D. That machine lasted 16 months before coming down with a case of slow death by DMD chip. The screen was filling with white dots (pixelating). Acer fixed it for $211.32 and because I bought it with a Capital One Visa Card they extended the war...
  • Cons: Like all DLP projectors, TV's and projector TV's before them the DMD chip may go bad. There are hundreds of thousands of miniature mirrors that vibrate at incredible speed. If the unit shuts down, like mine did several times probably from too much humidity, the fans shut off and heat builds up. T...

Awesome picture compared to older DLPs

kimber l., Newegg
4 August 2012
  • Summary: Most definitely worth what I payed.
  • Pros: Picture is great, bright enough for massive screens (15 ft+) in my opinion, comes with cables and carrying bag.
  • Cons: None for the price. If I wanted to spend more, I would have went for a native widescreen one with digital inputs.

Great bang for the buck

Negative459, Amazon
13 April 2012
  • Summary: I got this to use as a video projector in my man cave. I know it's not a proper home theater projector but it clocks in at around half the price of an entry level HT projector. I did weeks of research and this unit had the best reviews for the money by far.
