We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the ES500[pl_3258242_price], and the MX703[pl_2031057_price] both from Benq or the Optoma DS328[plb_1946553_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer H5370 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the H5370.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the MS619[pl_2024148_price], or the MW817ST[pl_1414729_price] both from Benq.

This multimedia projector's maximum digital resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) is actually the best maximum digital resolution amongst all projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 29 decibels, the Acer H5370 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago have noise levels of between 26dB and 40dB, and the average noise level is 32dB.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Average

Three experts from sites including PC Mag, projectorcentral.com and IT Reviews.com have rated this projector on average 69%.

Chart

A Bit Expensive

A number of Acer H5370 reviewers agreed that it was not cheap. Pcmag.com mentioned in their review of this projector on PC Mag “If you think that big-screen 3D home-entertainment displays have to be expensive, you clearly haven't seen the Acer H5370BD£506.94 at Amazon”. Projectorcentral.com mentioned in their review three years ago “The Acer H5370BD is perhaps the least expensive way to bring 3D into your home” .

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Acer H5370 does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the ES500[pl_3258242_price], or the MS504[pl_2024728_price] both from Benq or the Acer X133[plb_2780263_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the H5370 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Acer H5370 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Benq MW817ST[plb_1414729_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the Acer H5370 has one of the dimmer projector brightness amongst projectors of this age. Multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the H5370 have projector brightness of between 800 ANSI lumens and 4,200 ANSI lumens.

We compared this projector to all the other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq MX850UST[plb_1454745_price] is also worth considering.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the DX325[pl_1915714_price] (2,600 ANSI lumens), the DS325[pl_1920804_price] (2,600 ANSI lumens), or the DX330[pl_1724110_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens) all from Optoma which is also higher rated.
