Good Brand

Acer has good average reviews for its 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors as well as across its entire projector range compared to other brands.

Supports Full HD

The Acer H6520 supports full HD, unlike most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the H6520 which do not support full HD.
