9 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

We calculated the average ratings for all Acer projectors and also specifically for Acer 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors and found that in both cases Acer had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Supports 3D

The H6517ST supports 3D, unlike most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the H6517ST which do not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Supports Full HD

The Acer H6517ST supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the H6517ST do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer H6517ST has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson EX7235[plb_3060914_price] is also worth considering.

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the H6517ST is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). Across all data projectors of this spec and age the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

This projector has a maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, which is typical of many comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Data projectors of this spec and age have weights of between 2.2g and 68kg. With a weight of only 2.5 kilograms, the Acer H6517ST is quite light compared to most of the other data projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

Multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the H6517ST have noise level (economic mode)s of between 26dB and 43dB. At only 27 decibels, the H6517ST has a fairly quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the H6517ST.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most projectors that were released around the same time as the H6517ST do not support wi-Fi. The H6517ST is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Epson EX7235[plb_3060914_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the H6517ST have RMS rated powers of between 2W and 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 12W. With an RMS rated power of only 2 Watts, the H6517ST has one of the lower RMS rated powers amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

The Acer H6517ST is a one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity

The Acer H6517ST is a one USB 2.0 ports quantity multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

The smallest optical zoom of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the H6517ST is 1x and the biggest is 1.8x. With an optical zoom of only 1.1 times zoom factor, the H6517ST has a quite small optical zoom compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the H6517ST.

Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the Acer H6517ST

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when Acer released the H6517ST.

Average Projector Brightness

The Acer H6517ST has a fairly typical projector brightness (3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the H6517ST.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available including the Benq MH680[plb_1998672_price], the Epson PowerLite 955W[plb_2181186_price], or the Acer X152H[plb_2879485_price] which has better reviews.

If this 10000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Canon LV-X310ST[plb_3919355_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens), or the Hitachi CP-CX301WN[plb_3419087_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens).

Average Noise Level

At 33 decibels, the Acer H6517ST has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than a year.

Alternative 33dB noise level projectors currently available that you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Benq MH680[plb_1998672_price].
