Fairly High Horizontal Synchronization (max)

The lowest horizontal synchronization (max) of data projectors that are a similar age to the H6518BD is 72kHz and the highest is 110kHz. At 100 kilohertz, the Acer H6518BD has a quite high horizontal synchronization (max) compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the H6518BD.

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

The quietest noise level (economic mode) of multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year is 21dB, the loudest is 36dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 29dB.

6 Reasons Against

Not Good in Terms of Size

One Acer H6518BD owner said that this projector was not heavy and bulky. Daniel Westwater mentioned on Amazon “Play through a text heavy game on it from an only console” in his review however he rated it 5 stars.

Most data projectors that were launched more than a year ago do not support wi-Fi. The H6518BD is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this data projector and we think the Vivitek Qumi Q6[plb_3137053_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
