The Acer X110 is a good value entry-level projector that would prove extremely useful as a portable model for presentations.

Setting up the X110 is straightforward and there’s a manual focus that enables the user to adjust accordingly to get the sharpest possible image.

Among the projector's best features are the removable controls on top, which double up as a remote control, allowing the presenter to move freely around the room.

Weighing around 2.2kg, the X110 is reasonably light and compact and comes with air vents on all four sides to keep it cool.

Its DLP technology delivers an image with a brightness of 2500 ANSI lumens, which is more than adequate. It has a 4000:1 contrast ratio and a default native resolution of 800 x 600 pixels that produces detailed projections even on coloured walls.

The projector is equipped with a quality bulb that provides a lamp life of 3,000 hours - and up to 4,000 in eco mode.

There is a single VGA port, along with S-Video and USB sockets. However, it is lacking a digital throughput or audio connection, making it more suited to those with simple needs.
