We’ve had our share of experiencing large projectors that make eyes water, and small ones, often for mobile business use. Acer recently dropped the candy with their own handy dandy device. We’ve tested it on several situations, and we’ll say it has its own flaws, but the overall impression has left us with a “satisfaction guarantee” stamp.
We’ve tried using this little projector on several devices, gaming, smart devices, DVD, and laptops, and we were struck with awe. Images are bright and crisp, and the simple user interface makes this device even more accessible for everyone.
The K135 is designed for great mobility. It’s the size of an adult hand, and because of this, you have little to none worry about how to pack this thing and take it here or there.
If you’re not too keen for mobility but want to have a reasonable-sized projector, then the K135 works just as wonderful. It’s something you can put on a decent room and watch movies on, or take it to a friend and watch there.
It features a 1280×800 native resolution, which can be adjusted to a 1920×1080 HD resolution, giving crisp, and vibrant with colors and clarity. We thought this was quite nifty, spare HD viewing only when it’s most convenient to use. It sports with 500 lumens and is bright enough for a simple-lit room. The DynamicBlack technology smoothens all the images for better projection.
Aesthetic-wise, the projector has minimalist design, keeping it clean and simple. The power button, direction buttons, and the menu button are found on the projector’s surface.
Those are pretty much you need to get the ball rolling. It comes with a remote control, so you don’t need to pace back and forth from screen to device.
The rear side sports one of each, Universal I/O, MicroSD slot, USB, and HDMI port.
The availability of the MicroSD and USB allows access to files without the need of a PC or a laptop. Just save your data on a microSD card or in a flashdrive and you’re pretty much all set. It has built-in mono speakers, so you don’t need to worry about audio. You may try using a USB-powered speaker to add more kick in the audio department. A USB dongle is included in the package for wireless connections.
It has pre-installed Office and PDF reader, so any presentations readied through memory card or flashdrive are good to go.
Acer claimed lamp life lasts up to 20,000 hours. When enabling Eco Mode, hours are increased to 30,000. That’s approximately three years, more depending on much it’s used. It’s also possible to connect the projector to smartphones and tablets through the MHL cable.
It has an LED lamp type, and because of LED technology means less parts, adding durability, eco-friendliness, and runs on low power.
Because of the compact size, the K135 is easy to become anyone’s best friend for mobile presentations and mini-theater experience. If you spot this device winking at you in your projector-hunt, we certainly recommend trying to pick this up. Our experience with the K135 couldn’t be any wilder.
