Acer X1261P

 

The Acer X1261P is a portable budget XGA data projector that can do justice to typical business presentations and is capable of projecting 3D content.

Inexpensive. Lightweight. 3D ready.

Limited connection choices.

Excellent value based on $400 ballpark street price ; 3D ready - just add active glasses, and appropriate 3D content ; 3D support for DLP 3D, and also Nvidia's standard ; Very good brightness - beats its 2700 lumen claim, good for medium sized rooms...

No digital input (HDMI or DVI) ; Only a single VGA input, so only one hi res input. Switching may be needed for a computer and a hi-res video source using component video ; Remote doubles as control panel. Losing the remote could be a short term...

In summary, the strengths of the Acer X1261P portable projector include low cost and value, 3D ready, good color for a DLP projector (in the brighter modes), extremely portable, works (plays) well at non-native resolutions, and handles everything up...

As yet only used it once. Had appreciative noises from the aduience. Easy to set up and use. Controls good.

I would like the control handset to click into the body to stop just falling out.
