X1240 rocks!

 

Buy this.

@ $330 (or less), this is a steal. There's just no other projector that comes close in overall value. @400 it's still a good purchase. I couldn't find anything better anywhere in that range. @500, I'd compare first. *Perfect for watching HD movies....

The sound quality of the internet speaker is a joke. I actually laughed when I heard it. However, you're free to use any other speakers you may own, so it shouldn't be an issue. ------------------- This projector is ANALOG ONLY> If you try to feed...

Nice low cost projector

 

I got this projector on sale and the deal included a free self-standing projection screen, so I am thrilled with what I got. When you are shopping for a projector, you need to consider not only the brightness (lumens), the contrast ratio (how black are...

Quick start up and shut down, fairly small, two VGA inputs and one output, nice bright picture, simple controls, adjustments for height and tilt, comes with a remote, low price

This is a long-throw projector (high distance to image size ratio) and needs to be fairly far back from the screen for a decent size image. Fairly limited amount of zoom adjustment. No lens cap (really?). Does not cool the bulb down on shutdown (maybe...

Amazing!

 

It also came with a free 4x5 screen that is amazing in quality! Great deal on this package!

Has an amazing picture, even for not being 1080p! Put the picture on a 4x5 screen (80inch) and it looks fantastic!

Its an older/cheaper model, so no HDMI, but was not a big deal at all. Bought a few cables and adapters to play from an Ipad for my kids as well as hook to my pc and it has been an awesome set!

Outstanding

 

Overall this projector is amazing and I love using it whenever I get the chance. From watching television, playing games, or even just surfing the web on my laptop it is just an amazing item to own, and after a few hours, you get used to the fan, its...

high-contrast, bright lumens, relatively low heat, good resolution, great focus, comes with VGA cable, comes with carrying case, 7000 hour bulb life

Slightly noisy fan

I was amazed at the quality of the picture this projector produced from out-of-the-box. This unit was purchased for business purposes; however, over the weekend we had a backyard movie party; and, this projector produced a 180 inch picture with...

Easy configuration and operation. Bulb life is outstanding; almost 7,000 hours in Eco Mode. Produces a clear and sharp picture. I put this unit through its paces during a four day meeting without experiencing any problems.

Great Product! Good Price!

 

Overall, I got it for $300 with the free Acer 5'x4' projector screen. Great value and would definitely recommend.

Great bulb life, good resolution, small, good functionallity

Height adjustment knobs are wierd. Three feet, where only 2 are adjustable (one in front middle and two in back corners and only one back and the front middle adjust, making it wobbly at long extentions). Little zoom (manual and digital) Wish it had...

Acer X1240 PowerPoint Projection

 

I purchased this as the best ROI I could find,. with a Newegg coupon for a good discount. My use for this is about monthly so in theory it should last a good long time. Newegg shipping was prompt.

I purchased this projector to assist my teaching classes which are dependent on projection of PowerPoint images and video clips. After one eight hour class the projector is looking very good. I took advantage of the screw in camera tripod receiver...

The only thing that I would like to have seen different was that the fan shutdown was almost immediate when turning off the unit. Even when extending the setting so the fan would run as long as possible it was less than a minute. I would think that...

Good quality

 

I've had this projector for about 3 weeks now and used it a few times. It works as well as I expected. Good resolution and brightness (even in daylight). It starts to run a bit hot after an hour of usage. I'm not sure if that is normal or not, but...
