The Acer P1285 is a projector that is suitable for PowerPoint presentations, images and short video clips. This projector is easy to use. The P1285 features HDMI. The HDMI connection enables you to connect to most devices and display in high definition. If you have to travel with this projector, its compact size will make it easy for you. It has XGA resolution; this is most suitable for short video clips. If you are thinking of showing longer videos then we would recommend widescreen resolution (WXGA) as your pixels will not stretch. However, XGA will still give you a sharp image when presenting from a laptop. The vertical keystone correction is a great help, when you want to set up the projector, for example if you are slightly off-set you can still project in the middle of the screen using this function. We also have a wide range of portable screens for you to choose from; look at our Screens tab at the top of the page. The Acer P1285 has a high brightness so you can still project with the lights on! The 20,000:1 contrast ratio is also an asset as it brings out the darks from the lights, giving a sense of depth. It also has 2 VGA ports so you can connect to two laptops at the same time without the need to be swapping cables around. But, with other brands you get a 2 or 3 year warranty, but Acer only offers a 1 year warranty, which may need to be taken into account before purchasing.
