Good shadow detail, solid black level, and well-saturated color
The Acer H5370BD is perhaps the least expensive way to bring 3D into your home. At $549, this 720p projector is equipped for both home video and home theater, and its highly adjustable light output makes it easy to go from the living room to the darkened theater without a second thought.
Solid shadow detail and color
The Acer H6510BD may be the most affordable full 3D projector available today. At $799, it delivers an attractive image that's great for high-definition films and video in either a darkened theater or a living room.
While the W1070 has advantages over the H6510BD in several important areas, it also costs about 20% more than the H6510BD. Neither projector comes with 3D glasses, but both use inexpensive DLP Link eyewear rather than a proprietary solution.
Handles large screens for 2D viewing
The Acer, over all, has multiple strengths and weaknesses. Overall, it's a very good projector, but it just couldn't master either 2D, nor 3D to be my favorite choice (or right up there) with either. That due to color in 2D, lower brightness than the Epson (where lumens really count - in 3D) in both modes and overall, an average warranty (short - only one year). If you want better color you can consider the Epson or the Optoma and maybe one or two others still coming.
Strong contrast, good dynamic range, vibrant colors and sharp detail
The Acer H9500BD is quite the package. Its high lumen output makes it powerful enough for large screens or even use in the living room, while its good out of the box color means only minimal adjustment is necessary before you can enjoy your movie. Dynamic range is high, shadows are good, and black level is comparable to other projectors in its price range.
Slightly better than average black levels for the price
Ultimately the Acer is a nice "little" projector. It has the basics one would expect in an entry level home projector. It's best in a family room / living room / spare bedroom / bonus room - where you have some lighting control, but it is bright enough to do a very good job in rooms with a decent amount of ambient light. My biggest complaints are the rough edges - the problem holding signal, and the lack of better color controls (and a bit too much fan noise).
Bright and clear, while contrast is maintained
The Acer H6500 is not fancy. It won't revolutionize your home theater. it doesn't have any of this year's popular features. What it does have is solid 1080p performance, good color, and plenty of lumens at a price tag that's difficult to believe. At $899, the H6500 is the perfect 1080p projector for games, sports, television, and other non-theater applications that nonetheless require better performance than one can get from a business 1080p machine.
Built-in installation pattern
The Acer K330 provides an attractive option for those looking for a portable projector that's has decent light output at a reasonable cost. It provides a sharp, fairly bright image across a screen size of 80" diagonal. It handles non-native resolutions quite well and displays good color rendition in all but the brightest picture mode.
Easier to set up
Like all the projectors in this newly emerging category, the K330 fits neatly into the niche between slightly lighter, but significantly dimmer, pocket projectors below and brighter, but heavier, lamp-based projectors above. Small and light enough so it's nearly as easy to bring along as a pocket projector, it can throw a much larger useable image any given level of ambient light, and it's easier to set up thanks to its use of standard connectors rather than proprietary connectors and...
Sharp image with any resolution
For a short throw projector, the Acer S5201M is a solid performer both in brightness and sharpness. While this alone can be matched by other projectors on the market, the S5201M separates itself from the pack by including interactive ability at a very low price. While I had some issues with the interactive software, I believe that with a little getting used to, it would be more than adequate for most uses.
Bright and pleasing color-balanced picture
At its core, the Acer S5210M is a short throw projector that produces a bright and pleasing color-balanced picture. Beyond that it goes from competent to exciting. The Acer SmartPen, future proof 3D capability, internal media player and presentation features are attributes that set this projector apart from its competition.
