Acer C205

 

The Acer C205 is a compact projector of modest brightness and decent audio output, designed for businesspeople who need to give presentations in small rooms.

Small and portable. Can project from and charge MHL-enabled tablets and smartphones. Reasonably strong, good-quality audio.

Limited to HDMI/MHL connectivity. Poor text quality. Some rainbow effect in video in our tests.

That said, the AAXA P4-X's sound is barely audible. If audio is important to your presentations (and text quality isn't vital), and if you can connect with HDMI or MHL, the Acer C205 is worth considering.

ACER C205 Short Throw Portable Projector

 

With a quick charge, it was easy to connect via HDMI cable supplied to my Mac and use for a business presentation. Light, very portable, hardly any fan noise.

Focus adjustment a bit slow using the dial next to the lense. Never seemed to get really sharp. Speakers (when showing a video) a bit tinny. A darkened room is required.

Good Projector

 

Overall its a good projector. I use it for movies and works fine for me for small crowed of 5 people. I am able to connect it to external speaker system to boost the sound, but not directly.

Portable Inbuilt speakers HDMI and Usb works perfectly with Chromecast.

Limited Ports No sound out port to connect to external speaker system.

Works as intended

 

What might be a con to some is that it is just HDMI inputs.

Works well, battery life has not been an issue so far with the presentations and the movie nights with the kiddos. I had a bad model the first time and the one that I have now is working perfectly

Left the one star off for the lack of a manual, granted it is easy enough to operate
