Summary: Personal Experience Caveat Emptor: Ours was manufactured in 2006, purchased by us used in 2010, and died 2011. We moved from one apartment to another and the projector was dead on arrival. Replacing the bulb didn't do anything, so we are buying another projector. It was great while it lasted though and I'm sad to see it go. Problems The LEDs would blink once when it was plugged in and then -- nothing.
Summary: Personal Experience I bought this projector with 90 hours used because it had a good price and I wanted it for my children's cartoons, in order not to use the lamp of my toshiba mt700.I was astonished when I found out that the picture quality when I used it with my anamorphic lens was better than toshiba!!When I connected it to my computer the quality was even better.Now I'm selling my toshiba to buy an acer 530!
Summary: I bought it to view home cinema and I was knowing it is entry level projector. This projector will not disappoint you. It is great value for money.It displays clear pictures and quality of pictures is good. Nice buy if you are thinking of home cinema or even for office presentations.
Pros: - Great quality at affordable price - Good images - Easy to use
Excerpt: I am the kind of person who love to watch movies on the big screen, but would rather prefer to enjoy the experience in the comfort of my home. That is why I got myself the Acer XD 1150 digital projector . It might not match the big screen at the cinemas but is definitely by far the closest thing you are going to get inside your living room. Not to mention that it is much more affordable than most of the large screen LCD TV’s out on the market.
Summary: Personal Experience after much research looking for an entry level projector settled on the acer and could not be happier,runs very quiet,excellent picture for watching movies recomended excellent value
Summary: Bought this as an entry level home theater projector. Was very happy to see the quality of the images this produces. Capable of 1080i. Hard pressed to spend more on a projector that gives the same or only slightly better PQ. At this price point I'll buy the Acer.
Pros: Easy to set up and use. Great PQ. Many mounting options. Low fan noise.
Excerpt: "This is a good quality product that offers good value for money in the very short term. Although as with most products of this type, the value will deteriorate over time and should be able to get a cheaper version next year. It's a great device with plenty of features that I would highly recommend. This really is a wonderful piece of kit that should go well with many accessories because it really looks good. After using this product for a few months ...
