9 Reasons For
Acer Projectors Have Good Reviews
We checked 601 user and expert reviews for Acer projectors and found that on average Acer has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Acer has good reviews specifically within its 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors range.
Supports 3D Image Projection
The H6517ST supports 3D image projection. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as the H6517ST do not support 3D image projection.
Alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to consider include the Ricoh PJ WX2240[plb_3011875_price], or the Hitachi CPX2541WN[plb_3419040_price].
Supports Full HD Projection
The Acer H6517ST supports Full HD projection. Most of the other latest similar spec multimedia projectors do not support Full HD projection.
It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Canon LV-WX320[plb_3752970_price].
Has a Built-In Speaker
The H6517ST has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched in the last year.
Very High Maximum Vertical Synchronization
When compared to other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out in the last year that we have assessed, the maximum vertical synchronization of the H6517ST of 120 kilohertz is one of the highest. The maximum vertical synchronization of latest 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors range from 0.12kHz to 120kHz, and the average maximum vertical synchronization is 76kHz.
Quite Long Lamp Service Life
With a lamp service life of 8,000 hours, the H6517ST has one of the longer lamp service lives amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. The lamp service lives of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released in the last year range from 1,500h to 20,000h.
+4 More reasons for
The H6517ST is one of the lighter data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the H6517ST (only 2.5 kilograms) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. The weights of latest projectors range from 2.2g to 28kg.
Quite Quiet Noise Level
When compared to other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the H6517ST that we have checked the noise level of, the H6517ST's noise level of only 27 decibels is one of the quietest. Multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the H6517ST have noise levels of between 27dB and 41dB, and the average noise level is 34dB.
If you are not bothered about having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the WU515T[pl_3108720_price] (28dB), or the EH515T[pl_3108718_price] (28dB) both from Optoma.
Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode
The noise levels in economy mode of latest 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors range from 27dB to 33dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB. With a noise level in economy mode of only 27 decibels, the H6517ST's noise level in economy mode is one of the quietest amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the H6517ST.
4 Reasons Against
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The H6517ST does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched around the same time as the H6517ST also do not support WiFi connectivity.
There are a number of other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity which you might want to consider including the CPX2541WN[pl_3419040_price], or the CP-AX3005[pl_3793552_price] both from Hitachi or the Canon 0910C005[plb_3740073_price].
Very Dim Projector Brightness
With a projector brightness of only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the H6517ST has one of the dimmer projector brightness amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Data projectors that were launched in the last year have projector brightness of between 2,000 ANSI lumens and 9,400 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,400 ANSI lumens.
If you would prefer a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the X310ST[pl_3419097_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens), or the WX310ST[pl_3162256_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens) both from Canon or the Hitachi CP-CX301WN[plb_3419087_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens).
Quite Low RMS Rated Power
The RMS rated power of the H6517ST of only 2 Watts is one of the lowest amongst similar spec data projectors that were launched in the last 12 months. Multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the H6517ST have RMS rated power of between 2W and 20W.
Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port
Most similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the H6517ST have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the Acer H6517ST which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.

Released Ten Months Ago
This multimedia projector was released ten months ago.
1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution
The highest resolution of the Acer H6517ST is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).
We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors that have a resolution of 1080p (1920x1080) currently available including the Benq MH530[plb_3334650_price] which has a better Rating.
If you are looking for a data projector with a higher resolution then you might also want to look at the PT-EZ590[pl_3412481_price] (WUXGA (1920x1200)), or the PT-FZ570[pl_3434606_price] (WUXGA (1920x1200)) both from Panasonic.
