10 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Projector Reviews

Based on 620 expert and owner reviews, Acer has good ratings for its data projectors. Acer also has good ratings specifically within its projectors range compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Full HD Projection

The H8550BD supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the H8550BD do not support Full HD projection.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including the Sony VPL-VW320ES which has better reviews.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The H8550BD supports 3D image projection. Most of the other projectors that were released more than a year ago also support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The H8550BD has a built-in speaker. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the H8550BD also have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the LG PF1500G.

The H8550BD has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution. Projectors that came out more than a year ago native projector resolutions range from SVGA (800x600) to WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The H8550BD has more HDMI ports than most of the projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the H8550BD. This multimedia projector is a two HDMI port multimedia projector compared to most of the multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the H8550BD which only have one HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Optical Zoom

With an optical zoom of 1.4 times zoom factor, the Acer H8550BD has one of the bigger optical zooms amongst projectors of this age. The average optical zoom of projectors that are a similar age to the H8550BD is 1.2x, and the optical zooms range from 1.1x to 1.8x.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

The H8550BD has a maximum maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 11% more maximum digital resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels projector, which is the most common maximum digital resolution.

This multimedia projector's maximum digital resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) is in fact the best maximum digital resolution amongst all comparable spec projectors that were released more than a year ago.

The worst maximum digital resolution amongst similar types of multimedia projector is 1280 x 800 pixels.

Quite High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

The lowest maximum horizontal synchronization of projectors that have been around for a similar time to the H8550BD is 72kHz, the highest is 110kHz, and the average maximum horizontal synchronization is 92kHz. At 100 kilohertz, the H8550BD has a fairly high maximum horizontal synchronization compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the H8550BD.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

The RMS rated power of projectors of this age and type range from 1.5W to 20W. The H8550BD has one of the higher RMS rated power (10 Watts) amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors of a similar age and spec to the H8550BD do not support WiFi connectivity. The H8550BD is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the H8550BD has one of the dimmer projector brightness amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. Across all the projectors of a similar age and spec to the H8550BD the projector brightness range from 500 ANSI lumens to 8,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens.

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the Viewsonic PJD7830HDL ($520.99) (3,200 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The H8550BD has one of the shorter lamp service lives (only 3,000 hours) amongst projectors of this age. The lamp service lives of multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the H8550BD range from 2,000h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization

The lowest maximum vertical synchronization of projectors that have been available for more than a year is 0.12kHz and the highest is 120kHz. The Acer H8550BD has one of the lower maximum vertical synchronization (only 0.12 kilohertz) amongst data projectors of this age.

2 Other reasons to consider the Acer H8550BD

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when this Acer projector was released.

Average Noise Level

At 34 decibels, the H8550BD has a pretty typical noise level compared to most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the H8550BD.

We compared this projector to all the other 34dB noise level data projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic PJD5255 ($294.99), and the LG PF1500G is also worth considering.
