Acer X1161P vs. Acer X1261P

 

This article discusses the Acer X1161P's differences

Excellent value based on $400 ballpark street price ; 3D ready - just add active glasses, and appropriate 3D content ; 3D support for DLP 3D, and also Nvidia's standard ; Very good brightness - beats its 2700 lumen claim, good for medium sized rooms...

No digital input (HDMI or DVI) ; Only a single VGA input, so only one hi res input. Switching may be needed for a computer and a hi-res video source using component video ; Remote doubles as control panel. Losing the remote could be a short term...

In summary, the strengths of the Acer X1261P portable projector include low cost and value, 3D ready, good color for a DLP projector (in the brighter modes), extremely portable, works (plays) well at non-native resolutions, and handles everything up...

Price ; Brightness & Contrast Ratio ; Small, Quiet ; Decent resolution and supports 1600x1200

No air filters ; Moving parts (fans and color wheel) seem low quality

Works Great

 

Needed a projector to do a presentation and this one filled the bill perfectly. It is small enough to be easily portable and provides good options. I am looking forward to trying it with a DVD player.
