I went to see the K750 running in a shop today, playing fast&furious 6 on a white projection screen, in a low light room.
The picture seems crisp but:
- picture was quite dark, especially in the night scene (I tried "movie" and "dark movie" scene modes, custom was brighter but couldn't get a proper contrast)
- the movie had a lot of judder and was jerky when a lot of action or even a travelling or a character face passing by.
The disc was played by a bluray player, connected by hdmi. It was quite unpleasant and I would not by it if it cannot play better moving images.
How do you do to have smooth action? is there a setting? is it entirely due to the blueray player they were using in the shop? (next to it a Epson tri-lcd was playing nicely startrek with no jerky image.
In this thread from the french forum the user THX428 posted three different settings for the Acer K750.
So, if anyone here speaks french good enough...

Hello AVS Community!
I finally pulled the trigger today and soon to be the proud owner of the first hybrid projector on the market. It amazes me that this didn't explode and has me wondering if it was the limitations of the light source with respect to green hues as the AVS review acknowledged, or if it was, in fact, a more sinister ploy and possible collusion that has stymied this innovation just like the electric car. Was it cutting into Acer's other projector sales? Was it the replacement bulb market that was concerned? It's all dark ploys I tell you!
I went with the K750 so I don’t have to worry about how much each minute is costing me in bulb life and energy. My primary use will be online gaming via Xbox One. I also PC game some, stream a lot and play downloaded content. I am trying to decide between dedicating an extra bedroom as a home theatre or making it the living room replacement for my 42” LCD, so I don’t have details just yet for the layout or ambient light situation. I have some time as it is being shipped from England to Oklahoma. $1240 American.
Here’s the link:
I made my decision based on this thread and this review: http://www.avforums.com/review/acer-k750-led-laser-hybrid-dlp-projector-review.362 I almost went with the BenQ 1070W which, I know, would have provided a better picture for less money. I also considered the Chinese led 1080P but decided it's craftsmanship was not up to par and the now weaker LEDs are a downer. Wish it was through Amazon, but as you know it was discontinued. This price beats the $2000 elsewhere. I missed out on the bargain prices of $900 or $1000 plus a “free” monitor; at that time I was still researching and getting ready to buy a new car - lesson learned. I still feel this will at least equal out in cost of a traditional light source with replacements, but low maintenance was just as important as sudden down time is something I want to avoid. I plan on building a PVC foam board fixed screen so I will have a thread in the DIY section here:
I’m pretty sure this will be a ceiling mount. More details when I have time. Thank you AVS for all of the information I’ve scoured from your site and all the help I will ask for in the next few weeks.
