just what i am looking for at the moment is this projector any good xga resolution no widescreen!!

Review here:
pcadvisor.co.uk/rev…361

Appears to be OK for presentations but not great for films. Resolution is 1024 by 768.

Price looks good, less than 50% of original price from <18 months ago.

what model is it? it says ACER P3250, Argos is selling now for 299£ ACER P3251, and in description it says S1200???

Was this a question?! I'm so confused with your sentence.

You'd be better off getting a decent second hand PJ if you want to use one for home cinema.

Acer p3251 has much better specification and price is only 50 pounds if you can find any in argos. 3d ready and impressive 3700:1 contrast

The Acer is not much good for HC as it is based round a 4:3 DMD (1024x768). On a 2.39:1 film that will give you a native resolution of 1024x428. At that resolution the picture wont look great on a large screen. For home cinema you want to be looking at a 16:9 DMD projector ideally with a minimum 1280x720 resolution.

I agree. my brother bought an infocus with same specs & was bragging he got his projector is better than my Panasonic PT-AE700. then he tried watching movie on it & wasn't impressed

You really need an LCD projector for films, DLP have dreadful flashing colours when you move your eyes and the fringes of moving objects appear coloured and it just looks wrong and gives you a headache.

I am glad people are listing pj's on hukd but this one kinda blows I have an Optoma HD67 1280x720 3D projector but i want to swap it for the lower down Acer s5200 just for screen size. Would anyone think this is a good idea. 190 cm throw gives me 57" on my optoma and the Acer is short throw .

Panasonic make alot of short throw projectors. As I said I have PT-ae700 which is 720p & 6 years old. yours is similar spec so nothing wrong with it. In that case I'd say go 1080p if thinking new projector. as the PT-AE4000 is out maybe you can source the AE2000 or AE3000 for a good price

here's a PT-AE3000 @ Derby for £400 (with 91hrs used according to seller)

I agree, the DLP rainbow effect can be quite off putting although some people seem to suffer it more than others. I'm not too bad but my wife gets a migraine.

Well first off it doesn't affect everybody and it was much more prominent on older projectors with 4 segment colour wheels running at a single speed. With 7 segment colour wheels and multi spin speeds it is much less of an issue than it used to be. Equally many people complain about the 'chicken wire affect' produced by LCD based projectors.

My advice is test out before you buy.

I've got a Optoma HD700x DLP and happy to say I've not experienced the rainbow effect So must not see it or maybe different DLP projectors expose it more, I dont know but to say you really need LCD for movies is incorrect.

Lost count of the amount of movies we've watched on it via the PS3 or PC but most recent was Avatar blu ray and looked stunning.

INCORRECT, that's only a small proportion of people a small proportion of the time...
I could retort in kind about washed out black / grey colours from LCD..

wow it crazy cheap;)

I recommend HD65 720p for a starting pj, which I think is to be discontinued, 1080p HD20 and HD200x to replace them.

I got that one also, great pj, very happy with mine.

Hot of the press release, most impressive pocket projector Vivitek Qumi Q2 3D 720p 30,000 hour LED bulb. is going to make half the current projector models obsolete.

Every reviews are impressed, raving positive with consumers getting very excited about this LED pj, expected to completely shake up and tumble the price of 720p projector market quickly.
Starting price about £500 but is expected to gradually go down to £400 by in 6 months. I cant wait for UK stock, Amazon current £540
See U tube for reviews of this before you get any 720p projector.
