Acer Introduces the C120 LED Travel Projector

By - Source: Acer | B 10 comments

Acer has introduced a "PC-Free" SVGA (1280x800) projector

Acer's new C120 projector is a diminutive device that that measures 1.0 x 4.7 x 3.2 inches and weighs just 6.35 ounces which certainly makes it convenient for travel. The projector's LED is rated for a brightness of 100 lumens, a 1000:1 contrast ratio and is capable of producing a maximum resolution of 1280 x 800 (SVGA).

The C120 contains a HDMI input and is marketed as having "PC-Free" connectivity on account of its ability to read files directly off a USB thumb drive and connect to an iPhone with an appropriate A/V adapter. It is worth noting that the projector has no real support for legacy connectors such as VGA, but we don't view this as a serious concern due to the widespread availability of HDMI outputs on recent computers.


The C120 is currently on sale for $259 and comes with a 1 year limited warranty. For more information, visit the relevant page on Acer's website.

    IDK if it's different for projectors, but being LED or not (IE florescent, incandescent, etc.) for light bulbs doesn't stop them from being bulbs.

    Its is if its a "LED LAMP" not a bulb kind of the point since LED in most cases lasts much longer than bulbs.

    A light source being called a bulb does not signify the technology used to produce that light, at least not anywhere that I've read about lights (including LED lights). You seem to be trying to say that calling something a bulb requires that it is not using LED technology.

    Nope just saying that the LED lamp is not a typical Light Bulb consisting of gas and filament its a Light Emitting Diode which lasts typically 20 Years. I understand that LED's can be placed inside of a bulb shaped object. lol

    No but to the common folk when we speak of "bulb" with light sources the first things that come into mind are incandescent and florescent. The way the LED's emit light seem different from the prior two, so I don't usually think of it as a bulb.

    First: Average "normal" projectors have 2500 lumens. The 100 lumens this one have is far too less!
    Second: Why should i buy one of these when there is already a Pico Laser Projector available for same amount of money? At least that one has LASER and is always in focus, no matter how flat is the surface you project onto...
