12 Reasons For
Acer Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews
16000:1 contrast ratio data projectors built by Acer have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 16000:1 contrast ratio data projectors) and found that Acer also has good reviews across its entire range.
Supports Full HD Projection
The H7550BD supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other 16000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than a year ago which do not support Full HD projection.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Acer H7550.
Supports 3D Image Projection
Unlike most of the other 16000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the H7550BD which do not support 3D image projection, the Acer H7550BD supports 3D image projection.
There are a number of other data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Acer H7550.
Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the H7550BD, the H7550BD has a built-in speaker.
Other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might also want to consider include the Acer H7550 which has a better Rating.
Alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to consider include the EB-530 (£537.59), or the EB-520 (£539.99) both from Epson.
1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution
The H7550BD has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most common native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768). Across all projectors of this age and type the worst resolution is nHD (640x360) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).
We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors that have a resolution of 1080p (1920x1080) currently available including the Benq HC1200 (£2,357.32), or the Epson Home Cinema 3000 (£458.35) which has a better Rating.
If you would prefer a multimedia projector with a higher resolution then you might want to consider the Epson EB-Z9875U (£11,612.89) (WUXGA (1920x1200)), the Benq SU917 (£968.40) (WUXGA (1920x1200)), or the Barco CNWU-81B (WUXGA (1920x1200)).
Three HDMI Ports
The H7550BD has more HDMI ports than most of the data projectors of this age and type. This data projector is a three HDMI port multimedia projector compared to most of the 16000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released one year ago which only have between one and two HDMI ports.
+7 More reasons for
Two Built-In Speakers
The Acer H7550BD has more built-in speakers than most of the data projectors of a similar type and age to the H7550BD. This multimedia projector is a two built-in speaker data projector compared to most of the data projectors that were launched around the same time as the H7550BD which only have one built-in speaker.
Fairly High RMS Rated Power
Across all the projectors of a similar spec and age to the H7550BD the RMS rated power range from 16W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 17W. At 20 Watts, the Acer H7550BD has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other 16000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the H7550BD.
1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution
This projector has a maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, which is typical of many projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
Quite Big Digital Zoom
The H7550BD has a quite big digital zoom (2 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the H7550BD. The digital zooms of multimedia projectors that were released one year ago range from 1.1x to 12x, and the average digital zoom is 2.5x.
Very Quiet Noise Level
The H7550BD has one of the quieter noise levels (only 30 decibels) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. 16000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for more than a year have noise levels of between 30dB and 37dB, and the average noise level is 35dB.
Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the Acer H7550 (33dB) which is also higher rated.
Across all the data projectors of this type and age the weights range from 3.4kg to 3.9kg. With a weight of only 3.4 kilograms, the H7550BD is one of the lighter 16000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the H7550BD amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.
8 Reasons Against
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The H7550BD does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors of this type and age also do not support WiFi connectivity.
We compared all the other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Epson EB-535W (£574.91) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
Running Costs Are High
Based on average energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the H7550BD is £128, which is in the most expensive 10% of all 11 multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age.
Quite Small Lamp Power
Across all the multimedia projectors that have been available for more than a year the lamp power range from 200W to 220W, and the average lamp power is 210W. With a lamp power of only 210 Watts, the Acer H7550BD has one of the smaller lamp power amongst multimedia projectors of this age.
Very Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization
At only 0.12 kilohertz, the H7550BD has a fairly low maximum vertical synchronization compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the H7550BD. The maximum vertical synchronization of similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the H7550BD range from 0.12kHz to 120kHz.
+5 More reasons against
Very Short Lamp Service Life
Across all the 16000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the H7550BD the lamp service lives range from 4,000h to 5,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,800h. The H7550BD has a quite short lamp service life (only 4,000 hours) compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the H7550BD.
Only One USB 2.0 Port
The H7550BD is a one USB 2.0 port multimedia projector.
Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode
At only 6,000 hours, the H7550BD has a quite short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the H7550BD. Multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the H7550BD have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 6,000h and 10,000h.
Very Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode
When compared to other 16000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the H7550BD, the H7550BD's noise level in economy mode of 33 decibels is one of the loudest. Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the H7550BD the noise levels in economy mode range from 28dB to 33dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 29dB.
2 Other reasons to consider the Acer H7550BD
Released Over a Year Ago
This data projector has been on the market for over a year.
Average Projector Brightness
With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the H7550BD has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including the Acer H7550 which has a better Rating.

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Acer H7550BDuses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.63 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 17 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
