I am kinda leary of buying from Ebay besides I just checked prices of the bare bulbs at regular places that sell projector bulbs and even the bare bulbs go for about $ 200.

It seems this thread is kinda slow at the moment have not seen anyone post anything in a few days so I might as well give a update on what little informaton I found on the Acer K335.
I found this on a Europe websight and it was unveiled in Switzerland today and the MSRP in Euros is 999.
It has DynamicBlack technology and the trow ratio of 1.40:1.
I don't see a zoom ring on the projector but they have a chart with the specs of this and other new LED Acer projectors and in the chart it says digital zoom 1.7X.
I also checked on a German website and where it says zoom&focus it says manual.
No built in wireless have to use one of those doggles.
Whether this has a zoom or not is anyone's guess at this point but I don't see any zoom ring on this projector like the Vivitek Qumi 7.

So acer k335 has digital zoom wich is not real zoom like qumi q7 or normal bulb projector.
Using it will Degrade picture ??
post #37 of 73
From what I read it only zooms in on a certain part of the picture and yes it does degrade the picture frown.gif
I guess I can live without zoom as long as I set up the projector right like my old LG HX300.
post #38 of 73
didn't the Casio led projectors have a zoom feature like this ?
post #39 of 73

Anyone know when the K335 will be available in the US? The HEXUS news link says July in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Also, how good is the reliability of ACER projectors?

post #40 of 73
I was wondering that a few weeks ago and thought it was going to be avalible on the 15th of June but someone said it won't be avalible until Aug.
I never owned a Acer projector so I really don't know abouy how reliable they are.
I been thinking either the LGPA75U because it has a built in TV or the Vivitek Qumi 7 or the Acer K335.
The only few things that the Acer K335 has over the Vivitek Qumi 7 is that it has more lumens.
What interests me about the Vivitek Qumi 7 is that it has a real zoom lens and it's rumored that the material that the lens is made out of for the Qumi 7 is glass.
I can always go buy a USB TV if I want to watch TV on the Qumi 7 or the Acer K335 but I really didn't want to have 2 electronics on at the same time to save on energy.
So that's what I like about the LGPA75U is that all you have to do is plug it in and shine it on a screen and you can watch TV.
post #41 of 73
Hey guys ? maybe I am wrong but I just looked on the Acer websight and for those waiting for the Acer K335 ? guess what ? the K132 is already being sold here in the USA.
What's up with that ? One would have thought that those new projectors would be released for sale at the same time.
I guess we will have to wait in a few more weeks and see what happens.
post #42 of 73
So it was the acer k110, then k330 then k750 that they dropped and now the k132 that is online for $419 ? I'm lost.

The k132 is cheaper than the k330 how are they any different?

Acer k132/135 replaces k130 and have a smaller form factor than acer k330 which is replaced by k335.

The new k132/135 also have better contrast (10000) and mhl/miracast support.

Hope it helps.

Thank, that makes sense.

I saw a dealer in Washington State selling both the Optoma ML1000 and the ML800 or is that just on preorder ?
The ML800 is for $ 849.
So now in the next few weeks maybe we will see these other projectors avalible for sale.
post #47 of 73
The Acer K335 is expected to be sharper than the LGPA75U ?
It surely can't because of the DMD chip.
Would they accomplish this with larger optics ? better lens quality ?
Does anyone know what effects smaller optics have on a projector's image ?
Will the larger lens on the K335 effect and help it have better focus than all of the other 720P LED projectors with this DMD chip ?
post #48 of 73
Guys,

until now all the little WXGA LED beamer with the Ti 0.45" WXGA DMD DLP chip don't have a native resolution of 1200 x 800 as promised by the makers!!!
That's a big misinformation.

The real native resolution of the Ti diamond DMD DLP chip is 912 x 1140, internal upscaled to 1280x800 WXGA.
So every 720p input signal will be horizontally downscaled to 912 pixel.

Texas Instruments Product Overview
DataSheet 0.45" WXGA DMD

I'm waiting so long for a "real" 1280x720 pix DLP LED ... but I'm afraid, the K335 has the same dam diamond DLP.
Or any other information about that?

Hi all,

Here is a comparaison between acer k330 and the new k335.

In some words, better contrast and more light output are visible.
Colours also seems less flashy, more real but not perfect.

example :

ACER K335


ACER K330

1280*720 = 922k pixels
912*1140 = 1040k pixels

if you use a 1080 source it may have (marginally) more detail than a 720p pj. The problem is that normal means of quoting the resolution (h pix * v pix) don't apply very well to the 45-degree pixel layout.
post #51 of 73
To me it doesn't matter how many pixels the DMD has in total.

Even if the input signal is 1080, whereof the "WXGA" DMD only can display 912 pixel of a 1920 pix line. In that case that's less than the half.

So it makes no sense to me, to have a great native y resolution (1140 mirrors) what's much more then needed for 720p/1080p, but with a huge missing number of x resolution mirrors.

Just only a few days ago, I could test a Luxcine C7 with that 912x1140 DMD. In the options menu I could select between "16:9", "16:10", "just scan", and a few others.

With "just scan", the result was as expected - the film picture was cropped on left + right side because of the lower native x resolution. With 16:9 the picture was horizontally cot cropped, but pixel compressed.

Anyway ... I'm still confused.
Thought, early UHP 720p DLP projectors did have a real nativ 1280x720 DLP chip ... but I can't find any datasheet on ti.com.

post #52 of 73
When it comes to the amount of detail in a picture the thing that matters is the total number of pixels that the picture is made up of. The rest is confused by trying to measure a 45 degree chip as if it was a 90 degree chip.

Never? Why are direct replacements the same price as the outgoing model? That's one that bothers me as a person looking to get a projector but not wanting to pay the always $999, $1099, $3,099 price ranges it seems projectors are always listed at.

I got the LGPA75U but brightness is not up to where I wanted it to be.
I am on the fence whether to keep it since it's got a built in TV tuner and cheaper cost than the Acer K335, I also don't want to go through the hassle of sending it back and something get's messed up on them putting money back on my card.
I did a search and I found a user manual on this Acer K335 and on one page where it shows a picture of the projector and all the features on the outside like Lens, power botton, focus ring, I saw zoom lens.
Would that be digital zoom or a actual optical zoom lens ?
I might be tempted to return the LGPA75U and wait and get this one but I will have to save up another $ 400.
Would this projector be worth the extra $ 400 for 300 more lumens ? and a possible optical zoom ?
It does have a larger lens than the LGPA75U.
The only thing I don't like is I would have to buy a TV turner and install it on the PC and that would use up more electricity or power usage.
I can only guess that more lumens a better picture because more lumens would give you better contrast.

Hi DLPProjectorfan,

I'm afraid it is a digital zoom (1.7).

Only qumi Q7 has an optical zoom.
post #56 of 73
I bought the LGPA75U instead.
Yeah, it's a cheaper way of going but I need to consider my financial situation.
I had to balance out what I needed and the costs.
post #57 of 73
Hi.
Looks like Acer K335 is already on sale in Europe in several spots online 689 euro being lowest quoted price. Can`t find any reviews yet though. As for LG PA75U/K only way of getting them in Europe is via Amazon or import form Korea - works out at approx. 620 euro.

also stumbled upon a new model from Dell -
http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&sku=225-4640

anyone heard about it ?
only sold by DELL - 900 ANSI, WXGA, Miracast - would love to see a decent review on this one. It`s advertised as a business/ data projection rather than home theater model
Been researching for a while and basically looking for a LED or laser pj with features like PA75U (3D, media, wifi) but 1080 and min 800ANSI
post #58 of 73
I am already stuck with the LGPA75U since I don't want to bother with the hassle of trying to return it.
The Dell M900HD looks a lot like the Acer K335 the case and the lens looks a lot like the Acer K335.
I guess this is a case of the clone projectors part II.
post #59 of 73
Hope it will serve you well. Almost got Benq LW61ST few days back on sale for just over 1K - BlueCore laser, superb colors, 2K ansi but noisy and bulky.
Where did you get your LG? Waiting for your first impressions and more rigorous tests. This model has still not have a proper review. I`d say most people are wondering how well it holds in daylight + rainbow. After reading on PA70 model i think most focus problems with LG`s are due to poor positioning and /or leds needing time to break. Waiting for ur opinion
post #60 of 73
For the most part I bought it with the TV tuner so I can watch football this season on the big screen and the last time my brother I watched football it looked good, or as both of us said good enough.
This LGPA70G and the LGPA75U model is your average multimedia all in one media projector that will do ok for the Harry the home owner.
Yes it needs to be set up exactly on the mark centered to the screen or you will get a unfocused distorted picture.
Yes at the corners especially the right lower corner is out of focus when you have Windows desktop on it, but other wise for movies and games you don't notice it at all or very little.
I guess for those who bought these 2 model projectors from LG it will serve them well until the projector companies wake up and build a 1080P LED 1000 lumens and above projector that's affordable.
My brother says it's brighter than my other LG projector but to me it still seems to not be bright enough.
I guess I have to consider my eye sight is not getting any better and I have trouble seeing at night time.
I did read on a review on Amazon of the LGPA70G that they had it and it had the focus problem but they said that after I don't know how many hours that the picture got better and the focus issue was almost gone.
Yes for those who are saying that this is the Acer K335 thread I know and I was hoping to buy that projector the Acer K335 but it's still not available here in the USA yet and I needed to consider the cost.
I guess maybe in 2 years we will see some decent 1080P LED projectors with 3D at a affordable cost for the poor man.
