Acer PH730 review

 

To date, affordable HD Ready DLP projectors have been few and far between. But now we're starting to see one or two models breaking the critical, LCD-rivalling £1,500 price barrier.

Sharness ; Brightness ; Value ; Quiet

Occasional rainbow effect ; DVI is RGB colour sace only ; Digital inut detection issues ; Black levels

The PH730 won four stars when we reviewed it in Shopper 224. Since then the price has dropped by £646, so we wanted to see how it compares with newer models.

Acer is breaking free from its PC shackles and sniffing around the home cinema scene, but can the new boy's budget DLP projector cut it at the sharp end?

Natural colours. Decent motion tracking. Acceptable detail retrieval

Doesn't excel in dark scenes or handling vivid colours. Slow menu. Average build quality

Acer may be better known as a PC brand but the PH730 is designed for home cinema use. The competitive price is a tempting attraction but cutting costs rarely leads to class-leading performance.

Affordable price; decent specification; detailed and cohesive images

Average build quality; unresponsive usability; muted colours

Acer injects more life into the budget DLP projector market with its affordable HD Ready PH730.

Brightness and clarity of HD pictures ; quiet running

Black level is limited ; limited zoom range
