9 Reasons For for Choosing the Acer H6517ST

Higher Resolution

The Acer H6517ST has a projector native resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p), and so are the Acer H6521BD and the Acer P1500, which is 3 times higher resolution as the Acer Essential X1223H (1024 x 768 (XGA)) and twice as high resolution as the Acer Essential X1323WH (1280 x 800 (WXGA)). More ...

The projector native resolution is the resolution of image that the projector is able to produce. The resolution is expressed as the number of horizontal pixels by the number of vertical pixels.

A projector with a higher native resolution will be able to display more detailed images such as HD content.

3D

The Acer H6517ST supports 3D, and so do the Acer H6521BD and the Acer P1500, however the Acer Essential X1223H and the Acer Essential X1323WH do not. More ...

3D compatible projectors are able to display 3D content. Most projectors will require you to wear special glasses in order to view the 3D effect.

A 3D projector allows you to view the huge range of 3D films and content that is now available.

Full HD

The Acer H6517ST supports full HD, and so do the Acer Essential X1223H, the Acer H6521BD and the Acer P1500, but the Acer Essential X1323WH does not. More ...

Full HD projectors can display full HD content such as films and HD TV.

Full HD projectors can display full HD content such as films and HD TV.

Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL)

The Acer H6517ST has a Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL), but the Acer Essential X1223H, the Acer Essential X1323WH, the Acer H6521BD and the Acer P1500 do not have this feature. More ...

MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) is a protocol for streaming high-def video and images from a phone to the projector.

Ceiling Mountable

The Acer H6517ST is a ceiling mountable projector (as is the Acer H6521BD), but the Acer Essential X1223H, the Acer Essential X1323WH and the Acer P1500 are not. More ...

'Ceiling Mountable' indicates whether the projector is capable of being mounted to the ceiling or not.

Ceiling mounting is the best way of assuring the projector always has a clear line of sight to the projecting surface.

Handheld Remote Control

The Acer H6517ST has a handheld remote control, and so do the Acer Essential X1223H, the Acer Essential X1323WH and the Acer H6521BD, whereas the Acer P1500 does not. More ...

'Handheld Remote Control' indicates whether the projector comes with a handheld remote to control the device or not.

Handheld remotes are very helpful, since they mean you don't have to get up from your comfy seat to tweak the settings on the projector mid-film!

Better Kagoo Score

The Acer H6517ST has received a Kagoo Score of 81, whereas the Acer Essential X1223H scored 79, the Acer Essential X1323WH scored 79, the Acer H6521BD scored 79 and the Acer P1500 scored 80.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this projector and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

One More Award

The Acer H6517ST has received 1 award, but the Acer Essential X1223H has received no awards, the Acer Essential X1323WH has received no awards, the Acer H6521BD has received no awards and the Acer P1500 has received no awards.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Acer H6517ST

7dB Louder Noise Level

The Acer H6517ST has a noise level of 33, whereas the Acer Essential X1223H is a 30dB projector (3dB quieter), the Acer Essential X1323WH is a 26dB projector (7dB quieter), the Acer H6521BD is a 32dB projector (1dB quieter) and the Acer P1500 is a 29dB projector (4dB quieter). More ...

The noise level of the projector is the amount of noise that the projector makes (caused by the cooling fan inside the projector) when it is running.

A lower noise level means that the projector will be quieter when it is running. This means that you will be able to appreciate the quieter parts of films better without the background noise of the projector running. Most projectors have a noise level between 30 and 40Db, which rates them as 'very quiet' by Industial Noise Control - on par with low bird calls, or a quiet rural area. You can find more information here: http://www.industrialnoisecontrol.com/comparative-noise-examples.htm.

Only Medium (10000:1) Contrast Ratio

The Acer H6517ST has a medium (10000:1) contrast ratio (as are the Acer H6521BD and the Acer P1500), but the Acer Essential X1223H and the Acer Essential X1323WH have a high contrast ratio. More ...

The contrast ratio is the ratio between the brightness of the brightest white and the brightness of darkest black that the projector can produce.

A higher contrast ratio means that the projector can produce images with greater contrast so that they will appear more vivid.

700 ANSI Lumens Dimmer Projector Brightness

The Acer H6517ST is a 3 brightness projector, and so does the Acer P1500. That's 600 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Acer Essential X1223H (3,600 ANSI Lumens), 700 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Acer Essential X1323WH (3,700 ANSI Lumens) and 500 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Acer H6521BD (3,500 ANSI Lumens). More ...

'Projector Brightness' is how bright the bulb in the projector is, measured in 'lumens'.

A brighter bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

16% Smaller Bulb Power

The Acer H6517ST has a bulb power of 210, and so does the Acer P1500. That's 7W bigger than the Acer Essential X1323WH (203W) and 40W smaller than the Acer H6521BD (250W). More ...

'Bulb Power' denotes how powerful the bulb in the projector is, measured in watts (W).

A more powerful bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

Shorter Service Life of Lamp

Acer H6517ST is only 4 lamp service life, and so does the Acer P1500. That's 1,000h shorter than the Acer Essential X1223H and the Acer Essential X1323WH (5,000h) and 500h longer than the Acer H6521BD (3,500h). More ...

'Service Life' indicates how long the lamp in the projector will last before it needs to be replaced, measured in hours.

A longer life lamp means you'll need to replace it far less frequently, saving you money.

$265 More Expensive

The Acer H6517ST is more expensive than the Acer Essential X1223H by $265, more expensive than the Acer Essential X1323WH by $262 and more expensive than the Acer H6521BD by $116.

Over Three Years Older

The Acer H6517ST is older than the Acer Essential X1223H by three years, older than the Acer Essential X1323WH by three years and older than the Acer H6521BD by three years.

Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the Acer H6517ST is 80%, whereas the average user rating of the Acer H6521BD is 83% (based on 7 reviews) and the Acer P1500 is 85% (based on 22 reviews).

Lower Overall Review Score

The average overall rating of the Acer H6517ST is only 76%, whereas the average overall rating of the Acer H6521BD is 83% (based on 7 reviews) and the Acer P1500 is 85% (based on 22 reviews).

A projector with a higher native resolution will be able to display more detailed images such as HD content.

Louder Noise Level

Most projectors have a noise level between 30 and 40Db, which rates them as 'very quiet' by Industial Noise Control - on par with low bird calls, or a quiet rural area.
