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.
