Chart

Price Drop of £20.00

In the last 9 days the H6517BD has dropped in price by £20.00.

Supports Full HD

The Acer H6517BD supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of this type and age do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which support full HD to this data projector and we think the Infocus IN8606HD (£390.00) which is cheaper; or the Benq W1070 (£400.00), and the NEC M362 (£429.00) which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the H6517BD, the H6517BD has a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might also want to consider including the Benq W1070 (£400.00), the Optoma ML550 (£397.63), or the Epson EB-X20 (£407.99) which has better reviews.

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Acer H6517BD is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800). The best resolution of all data projectors that came out more than two years ago is WUXGA (1920x1200) and the worst is SVGA (800x600).

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

The Acer H6517BD is a two HDMI ports quantity projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the H6517BD have between one and two HDMI ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Very Big Digital Zoom

The H6517BD has a very big digital zoom (2 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the H6517BD. The digital zooms of multimedia projectors of this spec and age range from 1.1x to 2x.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

This data projector has a maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, which is typical of many comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The H6517BD has one of the quietest noise levels (only 27 decibels) amongst projectors of this age. 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the H6517BD have noise levels of between 27dB and 49dB, and the average noise level is 35dB.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the X1240 (£335.71) (30dB), or the P1500 (29dB) both from Acer or the Optoma ML550 (£397.63) (30dB) which is also higher rated.

6 Reasons Against

Unacceptable Noise Level

Some Acer H6517BD reviewers who bought the product thought it was not noisy. Denis Dal Lago wrote in his review of this projector “The fan is a bit noisy”. Denis Dal Lago also wrote “It doesn't particularly bother me, still if you set the power saving mode on you can roughly halve the noise coming from it at the cost of some brightness”. Last year Ozzy mentioned in their review of the Acer H6517BD on Amazon “Makes a horrible screeching noise” but despite that they still scored it very highly.

One customer who reviewed the product said that it was not quiet.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other projectors that came out more than two years ago, the H6517BD does not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Epson EB-X03 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
