Unacceptable Noise Level

  • The microphone in my action cam interferes with the speaker and makes a horrible screeching noise…
    Ozzy (Amazon) - June 2015
  • 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…

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The H6517ST has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for more than a year also have a built-in speaker(s).

Other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider include the Hitachi CP-CX301WN (£439.98), or the Benq MH530 (£453.21) both of which are cheaper.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Hitachi CPX2541WN (£376.01).

1080p (1920x1080) Resolution

The H6517ST has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution. Across all 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to this multimedia projector the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Projectors of a comparable age and type to this projector have projector brightnesses of between 600 ANSI lumens and 16,000 ANSI lumens. At only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Acer H6517ST has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as this projector.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this projector and we think cheaper multimedia projectors such as the NEC V302X (£393.64) is also worth considering.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the Hitachi CP-CX301WN (£439.98) (3,100 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think the Hitachi CPX2541WN (£376.01) is also worth considering.

At 33 decibels, the Acer H6517ST has a fairly standard noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as this multimedia projector.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 33dB noise level projectors and we think the Acer P1510 (£399.99) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you are not worried about having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the NEC V302X (£393.64) (34dB) which is also cheaper.
