Acer Debuts 3D Projector

Acer’s new projector handles 3D, but not much else.

All the new 3D gadgets are starting to roll out, and even the most stalwart 3D hater can’t help but be a little excited at the prospect of new gear. Acer’s newest projector, the S5200, is one of the first home and office projectors built with 3D in mind, but it’s a bit light in its other aspects.

And speaking of aspects, this $1,000 projector sports a 4:3 aspect ratio. It doesn’t get any more impressive as it goes on. The projector’s native resolution is a mere 1024 x 768.

It seems a bit odd to launch a projector with 3D capabilities that offers little else to go with it. Acer’s S5200 boasts compliance with Crestron’s home automation system, a six color wheel and features to improve lamp life and lamp performance.

Without an HD resolution though, it all seems a bit pointless.
