12 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

This projector received a score of 70 out of 100 from expert review website hifitest.de.

Just Released Eight Months Ago

The H6520BD was only relased by Acer eight months ago. Newer multimedia projectors like this one are likely to use more advanced technology.

Acer Has Good Data Projector Reviews

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

Supports 3D Image Projection

The H6520BD supports 3D image projection, unlike most of the other latest projectors which do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Benq MH530[plb_3334650_price] which has better reviews.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Acer H6520BD supports Full HD projection. Most of the other new 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors do not support Full HD projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq MH530[plb_3334650_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer H6520BD has a built-in speaker. Most of the other new 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the LV-X310ST[pl_3919355_price], and the WX310ST[pl_3162256_price] both from Canon or the Benq MH530[plb_3334650_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The H6520BD has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for the last year the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Very Big Optical Zoom

The average optical zoom of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched in the last 12 months is 1.6x, and the optical zooms range from 1x to 2x. When compared to other projectors that were released around the same time as the H6520BD that we have checked the optical zoom of, the H6520BD's optical zoom of 2 times zoom factor is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

At only 31 decibels, the Acer H6520BD has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the H6520BD. Across all the recently released 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors the noise levels range from 28dB to 41dB.

Chart Edit

Very Big Digital Zoom

The smallest digital zoom of new 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors is 1.3x, the biggest is 8x, and the average digital zoom is 2.5x. When compared to other new multimedia projectors that we have checked, the digital zoom of the H6520BD of 8 times zoom factor is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The average weight of comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the H6520BD is 8.6kg. At only 2 kilograms, the Acer H6520BD is quite light compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the H6520BD.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The noise levels in economy mode of new 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors range from 26dB to 39dB. When compared to other similar spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the H6520BD that we have assessed, the noise level in economy mode of the H6520BD of only 26 decibels is one of the quietest.

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Acer H6520BD does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other data projectors that were launched in the last year also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this data projector and we think the Canon 0910C005[plb_3740073_price] is also worth considering.

Very Dim Brightness in Economy Mode

The brightness in economy mode of similar spec data projectors that were launched in the last year range from 1,600 ANSI lumens to 4,100 ANSI lumens, and the average brightness in economy mode is 2,600 ANSI lumens. With a brightness in economy mode of only 1,600 ANSI lumen, the H6520BD has one of the dimmer brightness in economy mode amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization

The H6520BD has one of the lower maximum vertical synchronization (only 0.12 kilohertz) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Across all the projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the H6520BD the maximum vertical synchronization range from 0.12kHz to 100kHz, and the average maximum vertical synchronization is 43kHz.
