k335Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are starting to take over in home lighting, thanks to their long life and low power consumption.

But so far, the one place where they haven’t fared well is in data projection. While the light is generally white enough in colour temperature, the lack of output has been the one nagging drawback.

Taiwanese computer giant Acer looks like it may be getting closer to the Holy Grail of LED data projection with its latest compact model.

Dubbed the K335, the new projector features light output reaching 1000 ANSI Lumens, easily making it the brightest LED projector so far.

The high-brightness LED is said to be good for up to 30,000 hours, which is roughly six to seven times better than most high-brightness UHE lamps currently available in mainstream, full size projectors.

From what we can gather, the projector will have a native resolution of 1280×800-pixels and use Texas Instrument’s Digital Light Processing (DLP) chip, which should give good contrast levels (some are claiming up to 10,000:1).¬†According to the Russian market site Yandex, it will feature HDMI, VGA and composite video inputs along with vertical keystone correction. Dimensions will be 220x170x42mm and it will weigh 1.2kgs.

At this stage, there is no mention of availability or pricing, although it should be on the streets shortly.
