8 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked the user and expert reviews of hundreds of multimedia projectors to determine an average rating for each projector brand. On average Acer data projectors have good ratings from owners and experts.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Acer H6518BD supports Full HD projection, as do most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

We compared all the other data projectors which support Full HD projection to this projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the P1385WB TCO, the MR.JLQ11.002, and the P5327W ($164.99) all from Acer is also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago, the H6518BD supports 3D image projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think cheaper data projectors such as the P1385WB TCO, and the MR.JLQ11.002 both from Acer or the Optoma W351 ($649.00) is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The H6518BD has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other data projectors of this spec and age.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to look at including the P1385WB TCO, or the MR.JLQ11.002 both from Acer or the Optoma W351 ($649.00) which is cheaper.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The H6518BD has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution.

A 1080p (1920x1080) native projector resolution is actually the best resolution across all projectors of a similar spec and age to the H6518BD.

The worst resolution across comparable types of projector is WXGA (1280x800).

Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

With a noise level in economy mode of only 26 decibels, the H6518BD has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for more than a year.

2 Other reasons to consider the Acer H6518BD

Released Over a Year Ago

This multimedia projector was released over a year ago.

Average Projector Brightness

The H6518BD has a fairly average projector brightness (3,200 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the H6518BD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including cheaper projectors such as the MR.JLQ11.002, or the P1385WB TCO both from Acer.

If this Acer data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Viewsonic PJD6550LW ($574.99) (3,300 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
