One Industry Award

The editor of one expert review site wrote that this projector was good. This data projector received a "Highly Rated" award from Projectorcentral.com.

Average Owner Reviews

On average, people who bought this multimedia projector rated it as 71 out of 100.

Good 3D Picture Quality

One customer reckoned that it had a good 3D picture quality. Expert review site Pcmag.com wrote “The H5370BD is cheaper than a 90-inch 3D TV by an order of magnitude” in their review of this projector.

Acer Has Good Data Projector Reviews

13000:1 contrast ratio projectors built by Acer have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that Acer also has good reviews across its entire range.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the H5370, the Acer H5370 supports 3D image projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the ES500, or the MX703 both from Benq or the Optoma DS328.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer H5370 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for more than two years.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the MS619, and the MW817ST both from Benq which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Fairly High Maximum Vertical Synchronization

The average maximum vertical synchronization of data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the H5370 is 110kHz. The Acer H5370 has a fairly high maximum vertical synchronization (120 kilohertz) compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the H5370.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

The Acer H5370 has a maximum maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 20% more maximum digital resolution than a 1600 x 1200 pixels projector, which is the most common maximum digital resolution.

This data projector's maximum digital resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) is actually the best maximum digital resolution amongst all 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the H5370.

A 1600 x 1200 pixels maximum digital resolution is the worst maximum digital resolution amongst comparable types of data projector.

Quite High Number of Colours

At 1,070 million, the Acer H5370 has a quite high number of colours compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the H5370. The numbers of colours of projectors of this age and spec range from 1M to 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

The average lamp service life of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the H5370 is 4,600h. The Acer H5370 has one of the longer lamp service lives (5,000 hours) amongst similar spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

The Acer H5370 has a quite quiet noise level (only 29 decibels) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago. Across all the 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago the noise levels range from 26dB to 40dB, and the average noise level is 33dB.

6 Reasons Against

Average Expert Reviews

This data projector has an average expert rating of 69% based on three expert reviews from sites including PC Mag, projectorcentral.com and IT Reviews.com.

Chart

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Acer H5370 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the H5370 also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support Full HD projection to this multimedia projector and we think the ES500, the MS504 ($308.99), or the MX505 all from Benq which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the H5370 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Acer H5370 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of projectors that were launched around the same time as the H5370 is 3,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the Acer H5370 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the H5370.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including the Benq MX850UST which has better reviews.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the DX325 (2,600 ANSI lumens), the DS325 (2,600 ANSI lumens), or the DX330 (2,800 ANSI lumens) all from Optoma which is also higher rated.

Very Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

At only 2,000 ANSI lumens, the Acer H5370 has a fairly dim brightness in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. The brightness in economy mode of multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the H5370 range from 2,000 ANSI lumens to 3,000 ANSI lumens, and the average brightness in economy mode is 2,400 ANSI lumens.
