Short throw projectors get you huge images from very short distances, but how does Acer's measure up? Jonathan Bray finds out.

The throw ratio is excellent for my needs but, unless people are prepared to ceiling-mount the projector, they will need to put it in the middle (not literally) of the room - which may be a bit inconvenient. I get a 2m wide picture from just 1.5m away!

I haven't heard any other projectors, but I think the fan is a bit noisy but not too intrusive.
