Audio

Unacceptable Noise Level

Two owners who reviewed this projector mentioned that it was noisy.

  • The microphone in my action cam interferes with the speaker and makes a horrible screeching noise…
    Ozzy (Amazon) - June 2015
  • It doesn't particularly bother me, still if you set the power saving mode on you can roughly halve the noise coming from it at the cost of some brightness…

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The H6517ST has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to look at include the Hitachi CP-CX301WN which is cheaper.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Hitachi CPX2541WN, or the Acer K135i are also worth considering.

1080p (1920x1080) Resolution

The H6517ST has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all data projectors that have been around for around the same time as this multimedia projector the resolution ranges from XGA (1024x768) to WUXGA (1920x1200).

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to this multimedia projector the projector brightnesses range from 600 ANSI lumens to 16,000 ANSI lumens. The Acer H6517ST has a fairly dim projector brightness (only 3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to this multimedia projector.

We compared this projector to all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors and we think the NEC V302X which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Hitachi CP-CX301WN (3,100 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the NEC V302X (34dB) which is also cheaper.
