Acer XD1280D review


A projector that will work well in the brightest of rooms

Performs well in bright rooms

Slightly noisy ; Colours could be better

A competent, if not exceptional, DLP projector that won't leave you disappointed

Acer XD1280D


For those true fans of home cinema, a Hi-Def Projector will be an essential piece of hardware. Macworld took a look at six contenders.

works great



high lumen. Nice and small. Works well as it should. Haven't had any problems with it yet. No unusual ghosting or morphing problems that I could see, that was using SVHS input and the VGA D-Sub input

The cables don't all fit into the side zipper case, as the case is rather small, due to the small size of the projector. The focus ring is 75% out of reach, but it will just take some getting used to a new style of handling it

Great Value


Compact, light, case holds everything you need for an office visit, quiet, bright, very accurate colors, lowest price per features of any projector, no dead pixels.

eOpening Management software does not recognize flash memory device of the projector when trying to upload custom startup images.
