Running Costs Are Low

The average running cost of the H6517BD is only £82 over 1 year based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the more economic to run comparable spec data projectors that came out more than two years ago.


Acer Has Good Projector Reviews

We checked 820 owner and expert reviews (including 57 verified purchases) for Acer projectors and found that on average Acer has good reviews. We also found that Acer has good reviews specifically within its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors range. 94% of those that bought a Acer projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Released Over Two Years Ago

It was February 2015 when Acer released the H6517BD.


Supports Full HD

The H6517BD supports full HD, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector which do not support full HD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other multimedia projectors which support full HD currently available including the Epson Home Cinema 600 which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The H6517BD has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as 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 NEC NP-M322X which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1080p (1920x1080) Resolution

The highest resolution of the H6517BD is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all data projectors that are a similar age to this multimedia projector the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the H6517BD has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including because of its better review score, the NEC M322X.

If you would prefer a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Epson 1430Wi (£1,945.34) (3,300 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to this multimedia projector range from 28dB to 49dB. The H6517BD has one of the quieter noise levels (only 33 decibels) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

There are a number of alternative 33dB noise level data projectors currently available which you might want to look at including the Benq MH630, or the Acer K335 (£609.97) which both of have better reviews.
