News Reviews Insights TechRadar. Achieving around Lumens of brightness, this tiny micro projector — one that gets all of its power from the USB ports of a connected laptop — is the darling of the portable Powerpoint presentation. With that in mind we went looking for the darkest recesses of our test rooms to give the C a try. It may raise the image slightly, but doing so creates a mis-aligned image — and there’s no keystone correction to address that problem. On the bottom of the C is a tiny kickstand, but it’s so small that we can’t see any use for it. There’s actually nothing else to detain us here aside from a slightly sticky manual focus dial — what with there being no user interface or any kind of image adjustments — so we’ll move on to the quality of the projected image.

Nov 9, 3: You will need a reasonably dingy environment and a room that’s flexible enough for a straight-on image because zero adjustments are possible, but used wisely the C will have instant appeal to anyone obsessed with traveling light… as long as they don’t own a MacBook.
At 35 decibels, the C is whisper-quiet compared to most projectors, though it doesn’t have the built-in speakers now common on beamers of all sizes; on a projector this tiny that would be pointless since it’s smaller than the laptop it must be connected to.
Ask a question Reset.
SNIP regarding your intended punwhen searching, I read a review contemporary with the projector’s release and I stopped reading when it started talking about TWO simultaneous USB connections required for Full Msc – beyond my comprehension! This is a Powerpoint projector, plain and simple. Add a little colour acerr the C does well, with graphs and graphics rendered with just enough lustre to impress.
At x it’s far less than high definition; its maximum x pixel resolution signal is also slightly limiting, but the C was never meant to replace a home cinema projector or even have zcer to do with movies.

Notebooks Mwc level out of ten: Nov 9, At the very bottom? It’s with its bulb that the C shows its true colours.
The tiny size and — almost as useful — lack of bulky power pack and remote control makes the C mightily tempting.
It’s good, but not great, with the main issue being its lack of brightness. But they do work without the installed software by configuring manually.
Although I have nac used or seen a c, I think the restriction is that the projector’s software won’t work with a Mac. That’s a shame since the only other way to achieve full brightness is to be sure to use both USB terminals on a laptop, or else the brightness dims.
Besides the C’s connector slot is a DC power input, though there’s nothing in the box.

Nov 9, 1: Posted on Nov 9, Did you see the specs in the acer link? If I was the OP I would try the projector and set up system preferences to use the projector as an external display.
To start the conversation again, simply ask a new question. With that in mind we went looking for the darkest recesses of our test rooms to give the C a try.

Given the popularity of the MacBook Air and Pro with road warriors, that’s a big mistake, though Windows users won’t give a jot about that. Having sat the C on a coffee table opposite a projection screen in a complete blackout, we settled on a inch image from about 1. Setting-up the C isn’t difficult at all, but nor is it flexible. It may or may not work but I’d give it a try. It weighs a mere g and measures just x82x26mm, but it’s not just the C’s size that impresses. And no Mac compatibility?
Pride of place in Acer’s Travel Series, the C will appeal to any road warrior who occasionally needs to quickly impress with an instant Powerpoint presentation.
