What Do We like
Acer C200 projectors are very suitable for travel; they have tiny footprints that don’t require much space in your bag.
On-Board Battery Lives and Light Engine Lives
Acer C200 projectors have battery lives of about 4.5 hours. Similar projectors have battery lives of only 90 minutes, making it very impressive. Their light engine lives last up to 30,000 hours translating to eight hours daily, for 365 days, for ten years.
What We Don’t Like
The Acer C200 projector has many unique features. However, the focus wheels can be hard to use, though not unmanageable. They use manual focusing through the focus wheels but they are kind of stiff.
The Acer C200 projector doesn’t come with a remote control which many users have found to be an inconvenience.
Acer C200 projectors are unmistakably good projectors that come at reasonable prices yet yield top quality images. Except for the focus wheels which can be hard to use, all other features are excellent and reasonable.
