Expert website Whathifi.com wrote in their review “Connections are decent, finish is above par and picture quality wins points for good clarity” but in spite of that they gave this projector a rating of 60 out of 100.

Good 3D Picture Quality

Several Acer H9505BD reviewers considered that it had a good 3D picture quality. Whathifi.com mentioned “No crosstalk in 3D mode” in their Acer H9505BD review but despite that they rated the Acer H9505BD 3 stars.

Acer Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors built by Acer have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors) and found that Acer also has good reviews across its entire range.

Supports 3D

Unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than a year which do not support 3D, the H9505BD supports 3D.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D to this data projector and we think the Epson Home Cinema 600 ($355.34), the Acer H6517ST, and the NEC NP-M363W ($895.00) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Supports Full HD

The H9505BD supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other data projectors that were released around the same time as the H9505BD do not support full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the NP-M363W ($895.00), the PH1202HL, and the NP-M403X ($772.99) all from NEC is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer H9505BD has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the H9505BD also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the CP -AW3005, and the CP-AW2505 both from Hitachi or the Epson Home Cinema 600 ($355.34) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

The H9505BD has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). The best resolution of all projectors that have been around for around the same time as the H9505BD is WUXGA (1920x1200) and the worst is XGA (1024x768).

Chart Edit

Three HDMI Ports Quantitys

The Acer H9505BD has more HDMI ports quantitys than most of the projectors that have been on the market for more than a year. This multimedia projector is a three HDMI ports quantity data projector compared to most of the comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the H9505BD which only have between one and two HDMI ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Two Number of Built-In Speakerss

Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than a year ago only have one number of built-in speakers, however the H9505BD has two number of built-in speakerss.

9 Reasons Against

Average Expert Reviews

On average, based on four expert reviews from sites including Digital Versus, whathifi.com, hifitest.de and Les Numeriques.com this projector has an overall expert rating of 65%.

Unacceptable Noise Level

One Acer H9505BD reviewer who purchased it thought it was not noisy. Whathifi.com mentioned “Noisy fan” in their review and scored it 60 out of 100.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The H9505BD does not support wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the H9505BD also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the Powerlite W28+, or the EX7235 ($649.97) both from Epson or the Hitachi CP-AW2505 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Multimedia projectors of this age and spec have projector brightnesss of between 600 ANSI lumens and 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,600 ANSI lumens. The Acer H9505BD has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss (only 3,000 ANSI lumens) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Benq MH680, the Epson Home Cinema 600 ($355.34), or the NEC V302X which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Canon LV-X310ST (3,100 ANSI lumens), the NEC NP-M333XS ($724.99) (3,300 ANSI lumens), or the Hitachi CPWX3541WN (3,700 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
