7 Reasons For

Acer Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Acer has good average ratings for its 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors as well as across its entire projector range.

Supports Full HD

The Acer H6520BD supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the H6520BD do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors which support full HD currently available including a cheaper projector such as the Benq TH681[plb_2192820_price] or you might consider a higher rated projector such as the Benq W1070[plb_1522360_price].

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the NEC M362[plb_2268470_price] is also worth considering.

Supports 3D

The H6520BD supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support 3D.

We compared all the other projectors which support 3D to this data projector and we think the Benq TH681[plb_2192820_price] which is cheaper; or the Benq W1070[plb_1522360_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to look at include the NEC M362[plb_2268470_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer H6520BD has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for more than two years also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Benq W1070[plb_1522360_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Epson EB-955W[plb_2017457_price], or the NEC M362[plb_2268470_price].

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Acer H6520BD is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the H6520BD projector native resolutions range from SVGA (800x600) to WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

The biggest maximum digital resolution of the H6520BD is 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 11% more maximum digital resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels projector, which is the most common maximum digital resolution.

This data projector's maximum digital resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) is in fact the best maximum digital resolution amongst all multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the H6520BD.

The worst maximum digital resolution across similar types of data projector is 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

At only 27 decibels, the H6520BD has a quite quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the H6520BD. The noise level (economic mode)s of comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 26dB to 40dB.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the H6520BD, the H6520BD does not support wi-Fi.

It is worth considering alternative data projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Epson EB-X03[plb_2263795_price] which is also cheaper.

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The lowest RMS rated power of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 1W, the highest is 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 8.9W. The H6520BD has a quite low RMS rated power (only 2 Watts) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than two years have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, including the Acer H6520BD which has one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp

With a service life of lamp of only 3,500 hours, the H6520BD has a fairly short service life of lamp compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the H6520BD. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago the service life of lamps range from 500h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 6,200h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

With a service life of lamp (economic mode) of only 5,000 hours, the Acer H6520BD has one of the shorter service life of lamp (economic mode)s amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Across all the multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 3,500h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity

The Acer H6520BD is a one USB 2.0 ports quantity projector.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

The smallest optical zoom of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the H6520BD is 1.1x, the biggest is 2x, and the average optical zoom is 1.3x. At only 1.1 times zoom factor, the H6520BD has a fairly small optical zoom compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the H6520BD.

3 Other reasons to consider the Acer H6520BD

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when this multimedia projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,500 ANSI lumens, the H6520BD has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the H6520BD.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 33 decibels, the Acer H6520BD has a pretty typical noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the H6520BD.

We compared all the other 33dB noise level data projectors to this projector and we think the Benq W1070[plb_1522360_price], and the Acer K335[plb_1598465_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Infocus IN8606HD[plb_2110248_price] (33dB).
