yes, i think acer has been a player in the laptop market much longer than the projector market which is why i'm so skeptical about the ph530 because i still cant find any reviews or more user opinions on it. on paper it looks like a very nice machine being sold at a very good price; offering HD at a price point never heard of before. but i would still like to hear more people's opinions and perhaps some actual shots of it in action. but in this case the lack of discussion about it might mean that its not a hidden jem? no news means bad news in this case?

It appears that the company is making a run for a share of the market with the price-point being a main focus area. If the projector is comparable to the laptop I bought, then it will probably "feel" a little less rugged and therefore maybe a little more sensitive to bumps, etc.. but perform as well as the bigger players that it is shooting for.

Not sure if I would buy an Acer Projector without seeing one in person though... but that's just me. Maybe a few more testimonials from seasoned HT enthusiasts could sway that.

I recently bought the HD1000U to replace my 3.5yr old X1 and couldn't be happier. Money well spent in my opinion!

good thread.. I hope to see it get more activity.

Hey guys.

Anyone pull the trigger on this one yet? My brother in law is in the market for one of these.
He can get great prices for himself from Acer so it's the only brand he will buy.
I'm trying to get him into Crt (used to own a sony-1272) but space is a big big factor for him.
This PJ has been out a while and I can't find any reviews for. Does anyone have any screenies in action? Opinions?

Thanks!

This PJ seems to be largely ignored and I'm not sure why. I have been trying to find reviews with no luck

This is the projector im saving for right now. i currently have an acer XGA pj, and was satisfied because it was thousands less than any 720p pjs at the time. the pj works very well, but you can clearly tell its a business pj, this one isnt, so it could be very good.

in canada its 350$ cheaper than the HD70 and HD1000.

also the bulbs are MUCH cheaper which makes a significant difference on the TOTAL cost.

heres a bunch of info and pics

id also like to know more about the DLP platform used.
