    No display port and an odd resolution, this product makes no sense to me at all.

    Re: Acer announces the Predator Z850 gaming projector

    I was actually waiting for details on this since it's announcement late last year, but what a massive disappointment. Who's seriously going to spend $5000 on 1920x720 projector?

    Re: Acer announces the Predator Z850 gaming projector

    Why are the buttons in front of the lens?

    Because the on screen menu was designed to be on hand.

    Sorry.

    Agreed. And no 120 Hz, G-Sync/Freesync, low persistence, etc. or any other "gaming" features.

    Agreed. Also 24:9 just sounds like a lame excuse for "We cheaped out and couldn't even be bothered putting a full HD chip in".

    Re: Acer announces the Predator Z850 gaming projector

    I was looking into projectors myself, and it surprised me that very few reach 1080p resolution. Almost all the viable options are 720p... :/

    Yup - I sit 2.5m from my 92" screen. Playing the in-car view on Forza is mental.
