User Reviews Are Average

This projector has an average user rating of 71% based on 13 user reviews.

Based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the H5370 will cost only £79 over 1 year to run, which is in the cheapest 17% of all 78 projectors of a similar spec and age.

Good 3D Picture Quality

Chart

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer H5370 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the H5370 also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the MS502[pl_1385309_price], or the MX703[pl_2031057_price] both from Benq or the Optoma DS328[plb_1946553_price] which has better reviews.

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp

The service life of lamps of 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the H5370 range from 2,000h to 20,000h. The Acer H5370 has a quite long service life of lamp (5,000 hours) compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Average

This data projector has an average expert rating of 69% based on three expert reviews from sites including PC Mag, projectorcentral.com and IT Reviews.com.

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 3D

The Acer H5370 does not support 3D, unlike most of the other data projectors of this age and spec.

There are a number of other data projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to look at including the MS502[pl_1385309_price], the MX666[pl_2298355_price], or the MX600[pl_2024731_price] all from Benq which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The Acer H5370 does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the H5370 also do not support full HD.

It is worth considering alternative data projectors which also support full HD including the Benq MS512[plb_2290289_price], or the Acer S1283Hne[plb_3202253_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Acer H5370 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the Benq MW817ST[plb_1414729_price] is also worth considering.

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 brightnesss amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. The projector brightnesss of projectors of a similar age and spec to the H5370 range from 800 ANSI lumens to 4,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,000 ANSI lumens.

There are a number of other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available which you might also want to look at including the Benq MX850UST[plb_1454745_price] which has better reviews.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Acer X11[plb_2186184_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Benq MW519[plb_1538859_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
