6 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

Acer 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings on average and across all data projectors Acer is one of the better rated brands.

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the H6517ST which do not support full HD, the H6517ST supports full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson Home Cinema 600 ($355.34) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
