Post-ownership review

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

Great budget projector

Alejandro Villarreal Diaz, Amazon
25 February 2013
  • Summary: If you are considering a projector for your business presentations, this one is a good option. It is not as small as pico projectors yet portable enough. This projector is very bright and can give you a clear image of 60" with the lights on.

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.

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...

Excellent image for the price

Joseph Smith "pocketpiglets.com", Amazon
26 January 2012
  • Summary: This projector far surpassed my expectations. The image gets extremely sharp and the colors hold vibrant no matter what color I project an image onto. When switched to 16:9 ratio, an HD picture is reproduced surprisingly well despite losing some resolution in the projector's native 1024x768...

Very nice for the price.

Mr. C., Newegg
25 December 2011
  • Pros: The main thing I love about this projector is how far away it will project an image. I have mine set right at 16.5ft and my screen size is right about 120" and it is very clear. For the price it is a great entry level projector. Excellent for movies and playing games.
  • Cons: Could have come with a 4-pin S-video connector. It has been a pain finding one that converts to composite. Also cannot get the projector to show in its native resolution. Controller is horrible.

great projector but not at very short distance

Steven M., Newegg
27 October 2011
  • Summary: Most of my presentations are 7-8 feet from the screen, which is just fine. Case needs an adjustable carrying strap.
  • Pros: my second review to update my thoughts after two months. It works great, great picture, couldn't be happier.
  • Cons: Do not buy if you often use from short distances <5 feet. The zoom factor will not give a sufficiently large image until you are >6 feet from the screen, in my experience. Works great from long distances >20 feet though.

  • Summary: Wassup people! I had been searching amazon for months to buy me a projector on my bday. Went thru 100s of projectors, compared each of their attributes on external sites, and then finally decided to go for this model. Here's what i feel about this proj: 1. No setup required. Plug n Play. 2.
