A large (but quiet) portable projector, with good image quality

Good image quality and connectivity, bundled laser pointer, quiet operation

Heavy and large for a portable model

Acer's P1265 is large and heavy when compared to other portable models, but has impressive brightness and image quality.

Good image quality, Laser pointer, Good connectivity

Bulky and heavy, Small control buttons

Acer's P1265 is great value for money and delivers impressive image quality, with higher brightness than you'd expect given its 2,400 ANSI Lumen specification.
