Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer H6510BD has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to this projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Benq MH530 (£459.10) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Acer H6517ST (£441.78), or the Ricoh PJ WX2240.

Video

Supports Full HD

The H6510BD supports full HD, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than a year.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors which support full HD currently available including the W1070+, or the MH530 (£459.10) both from Benq which and both of have better reviews.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Acer H6517ST (£441.78) is also worth considering.
