10 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The average running cost of the H6517ST is only £84 over 1 year based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the cheaper to run 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

Good Brand

Based on 654 owner and expert reviews, Acer has good ratings for its data projectors. Acer also has good ratings specifically within its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors range compared to other manufacturers.

Supports 3D

The H6517ST supports 3D, unlike most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the H6517ST which do not support 3D.

Other projectors which support 3D currently available that you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Epson Home Cinema 600[plb_3077179_price].

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than a year ago which do not support full HD, the Acer H6517ST supports full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson Home Cinema 600[plb_3077179_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer H6517ST has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors that were released more than a year ago also have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Acer H6517ST is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the H6517ST projector native resolutions range from XGA (1024x768) to WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

This multimedia projector has a maximum digital resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, which is the most frequently found maximum digital resolution on data projectors that have been around for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Digital Zoom

The smallest digital zoom of data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the H6517ST is 1.1x and the biggest is 2x. At 2 times zoom factor, the Acer H6517ST has a quite big digital zoom compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the H6517ST.

Chart Edit

Very Light

At only 2.5 kilograms, the H6517ST is quite light compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. The lightest data projector that has been available for around the same time as the H6517ST is 2.2g heavy and the heaviest is 68kg.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

The average noise level (economic mode) of data projectors of a similar type and age to the H6517ST is 29dB. With a noise level (economic mode) of only 27 decibels, the H6517ST has one of the quieter noise level (economic mode)s amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Acer H6517ST does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the H6517ST also do not support wi-Fi.

It is worth also looking at other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Epson EB-945H[plb_3077398_price].

3 Other reasons to consider the Acer H6517ST

Released Over Two Years Ago

This 10000:1 contrast ratio projector was released over two years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Acer H6517ST has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the H6517ST.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq MH680[plb_1998672_price], the Epson PowerLite 955W[plb_2181186_price], and the Acer X152H[plb_2879485_price] is also worth considering.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the LV-X310ST[pl_3919355_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens), or the X310ST[pl_3419097_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens) both from Canon or the Hitachi CP-CX301WN[plb_3419087_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens).

We compared this projector to all the other 33dB noise level data projectors and we think the Acer K335[plb_1598465_price], and the Benq MH680[plb_1998672_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
