Acer may not be the first name you think of when it comes to home cinema, but for a bit of business use and some sneaky Wii gaming, the S1200 could be a decent bit of kit.
This DLP-based projector features Acer’s ColorBoost II technology for enhanced colours and picture quality, and has a brightness of 2,500 ANSI lumens and 2,000:1 contrast ratio. It can also push out up to 1,680 x 1,050 resolution, so it won’t do a terrible job of high definition content.
The projector has HDMI input, an average 3,000 hour lamp life, remote control and laser pointer, inbuilt audio speaker, and several power-saving modes.
Available for £539 (excluding VAT).
