We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think the MX703, and the MW817ST both from Benq which has better reviews is also worth considering.

6 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Average

On average, based on three expert reviews from sites including PC Mag, and IT this data projector has an overall expert rating of 69 out of 100.


Does Not Support 3D

The Acer H5370 does not support 3D. Most of the other similar spec projectors that came out more than two years ago do support 3D.

Other projectors which also support 3D that you might want to look at include the ES500, or the MS504 ($308.99) both from Benq or the Acer X1373 ($331.99) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the H5370, the Acer H5370 does not support full HD.

Other data projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider include the MS504 ($308.99), or the MX505 both from Benq or the Optoma DH1011 ($806.62) which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most data projectors that have been available for more than two years do not support wi-Fi. The Acer H5370 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Benq MW817ST which also has a higher rating.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of projectors of a comparable age and type to the H5370 is 3,000 ANSI lumens. At only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the Acer H5370 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the H5370.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq MX850UST.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Benq MW519 (2,800 ANSI lumens), or the Optoma DS311 (2,800 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
