One of Acer’s new yet unconventional product is the C250i. In conjunction with its 30th anniversary in Malaysia, Acer announced its availability and price too. This is the world’s first auto portrait LED projector, the Acer C250i.
LED projectors aren’t new and it has a lot of benefits compared to the traditional ones. With a long lamp life with lower heat output, it lasts for at least 10 times longer than traditional projector lamps with an average functional usage of 10,000 hours or more. They are also more compact and quieter due to LEDs operate at much lower temperatures, therefore, less airflow is needed for cooling.

And “compact” is the key highlight here. The Acer C250i is a unique twisted roll design that enables the C250i to project the screen onto a wall, ceiling or any surface without using a tripod or stand. Thanks to autoportrait technology, projection orientation can be done on-the-fly, providing ease of use and good user experience. Images are crisp and clear as well at 1080p from every angle with the help of keystone correction.
The projector supports both Android and iOS devices through a wireless connection and the built-in Bluetooth speaker supports Acer TrueHarmony technology. The battery pack holds 9,000mAh of portable juice and features a standard HDMI, USB Type-C and Type-A ports that support video-out for both smartphones and PCs and is Plug-and-Play compatible. Additionally, the USB Type-A port allows direct multimedia playback from a USB storage.
Essentially, the Acer 250i becomes a versatile portable projector for your devices. It can become an external “monitor” for your laptop at whichever surface because of its unique helical shape, and it also has built-in speakers.
The Acer C250i projector is available now at Acer official online stores and all authorized resellers nationwide at RM1,699. Details and specifications are available here.
