6 Reasons For

Acer Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Multimedia projectors produced by Acer generally have good ratings.

Supports Full HD

The Acer H5381BD supports full HD, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the H5381BD which do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Supports 3D

Like most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the H5381BD, the H5381BD supports 3D.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The H5381BD has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the H5381BD also have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Two VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The H5381BD is a two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity data projector.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

The noise level (economic mode)s of latest projectors range from 26dB to 35dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 29dB. When compared to other 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the H5381BD that we have assessed, the noise level (economic mode) of the H5381BD of only 26 decibels is one of the quietest.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The H5381BD does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other similar spec projectors that came out in the last year also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released in the last 12 months have projector brightnesss of between 300 ANSI lumens and 5,400 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Acer H5381BD has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the H5381BD.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the H5382BD ($481.17) (3,300 ANSI lumens), the P1186 ($623.00) (3,300 ANSI lumens), or the X115H (3,300 ANSI lumens) all from Acer.

3 Other reasons to consider the Acer H5381BD

Released Twelve Months Ago

It was twelve months ago when Acer released the H5381BD.

720p (1280x720) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the H5381BD is 720p (1280x720). That's 17% more resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 30 decibels, the H5381BD has a relatively average noise level compared to most of the other 20000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the H5381BD.

If you would consider a multimedia projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Z650 (30dB), or the P1285 TCO (30dB) both from Acer.
