Acer’s new K132 is an LED-lit DLP pico projector measuring just 5.5″ (L) x 4.6″ (W) x 1.6″ (H) that claims over 500 ANSI lumens at WXGA resolution (1280×800). The contrast ratio spec is 10,000:1.
LED-based, the K132 has a long lamp life of 30,000 hours in Extreme Eco mode that reduces standby power consumption by up to 90 percent — from 5 watts to 0.5 watts. It also goes 20,000 hours in standard mode. LED lamps offer many benefits, including a longer lifespan with an always-available light source, instant on/off capability and better color saturation. With no breakable filaments or tubes, LED lamps are durable and reduce environmental impact, since there are no hazardous mercury or halogen gases.
