Acer X1240 PowerPoint Projection 09/08/2013
This review is from: Acer X1240 1024 x 768 2700 lumens DLP Projector 10,000:1
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 built into the projector and used a tripod to mount the projector. That worked perfectly for me. The unit worked fine in a dimly lit room as well as one with half lighting. The image was clear and easy to focus. The color rendition was very good, and the fan noise was very low. The unit got warm but did not seem to overheat. Comes with remote, and carrying case. Has VGA, S-Video, and RCA inputs - would of course liked to have had HDMI but it was not a no-go on my purchase. Was pretty easy to configure.
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 this would have some effect on bulb life, and would like the unit to really cool down before I put it away. The manual was on CD which is OK but I would have preferred at least a limited manual on paper..
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.
