Across all projectors, the H6510BD is one the most popular products currently on sale.
We checked 601 owner and expert reviews for Acer multimedia projectors and found that on average Acer has good reviews. We also found that Acer has good reviews specifically for its 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.
Supports 3D Image Projection
Unlike most of the other projectors that have been around for a similar time to the H6510BD which do not support 3D image projection, the H6510BD supports 3D image projection.
We compared all the other data projectors which support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Benq TH670 ($492.99), and the Hitachi CPX2541WN ($479.99) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to look at include the Hitachi CP-CX301WN.
Supports Full HD Projection
The H6510BD supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other data projectors that were released in the last 12 months do not support Full HD projection.
We compared all the other projectors which support Full HD projection to this multimedia projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the Benq TH670 ($492.99), and the Hitachi CPX2541WN ($479.99) is also worth considering.
We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Hitachi CP-CX301WN is also worth considering.
1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution
The Acer H6510BD supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over two times the resolution of a 1024 x 768 (XGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by multimedia projectors that were released in the last year. The best resolution of all latest similar spec projectors is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).
If the resolution of this data projector is not high enough for you then you might want to look at the Benq MH530 ($499.99) (640 x 480 (VGA)|1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) which also has a higher rating.
The Acer H6510BD is one of the narrowest data projectors that were released in the last year (only 264 millimeters) amongst similar spec projectors of this age. The narrowest 10000:1 contrast ratio projector that was launched in the last year is 260mm wide and the widest is 500mm.
+2 More reasons for
At only 2.2 grams, the Acer H6510BD is very light compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the H6510BD. Data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the H6510BD have weights of between 2.2g and 28kg.
5 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The H6510BD does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other new 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors do have a built-in speaker.
Alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to consider include the Benq TH670 ($492.99) which is also cheaper.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The H6510BD does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the H6510BD also do not support WiFi connectivity.
We compared all the other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Canon 0910C005, or the Hitachi CPX2541WN ($479.99) which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
Very Dim Projector Brightness
The average projector brightness of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the H6510BD is 4,400 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 2,000 ANSI lumens to 9,400 ANSI lumens. At only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the H6510BD has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other newly released comparable spec projectors.
Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the Canon 0910C005 (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port
The H6510BD is a one VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the H6510BD have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports.
+2 More reasons against
Only One HDMI Port
The H6510BD is a one HDMI port multimedia projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out in the last 12 months have between one and two HDMI ports.

This projector has been on the market for nine months.
1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution
The highest resolution of the H6510BD is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative multimedia projectors that have a resolution of 1080p (1920x1080) currently available including the Benq MH530 ($499.99) which has a better Rating; or the Benq TH670 ($492.99) which is cheaper.
