LET ME SUMMARIES
If you want to make use of the H6510BDs 3D talents, youre looking at between 60 and 70 for each pair of active shutter glasses. So it provides a series of wall colour options, which the projector can compensate for by adjusting its colour tones to compensate. Plus just angling the picture upwards causes the image to look trapezoidal rather than rectangular in shape, and as such is certainly no replacement for a proper optical vertical image shifting system. Though it must be said the range of optical zoom on offer is pretty limited, so you may well also find yourself moving the projectors physical position around if youre trying to get the perfect image size for a screen rather than a wall.
Its pretty much de rigueur these days for ultra-cheap convenience projectors like the H6510BD to carry built-in speakers, and this Acer continues the trend.Other features of note include a startlingly detailed and comprehensive colour management system; a Dynamic Black processor that continually assesses images and adjusts pictures settings to enhance dark image content; DLPs Brilliant Colour system for upping colour saturations; a white peaking adjustment for fine-tuning the images dynamic range; noise reduction routines; and a selection of gamma presets.SEE ALSO: Our pick of the Best ProjectorsThe optical engine inside the H6510BD is a DLP type, using a full HD chipset and claiming strikingly high brightness and contrast ratio figures of 3000 Lumens and 10,000:1 respectively. Theres only a single 2W speaker, though, so dont start dreaming that the H6510BDs audio will be in any way an adequate replacement for a separate audio system.
The HDMIs are capable of handling full HD 3D feeds as well as the 2D HD signals you might expect. Its small lens, too, smacks more of building to a price than an obsession with performance.The H6510B fully understands that it could be used in some pretty makeshift settings given its focus on value.You can also angle the image up using a screw down leg at the centre of the bottom front edge though this doesnt make for as stable a result as having screw down legs at either side would have done.
You dont get any free 3D glasses, but thats fair enough for the H6510BDs price. It clearly is not just some cheap and probably not very cheerful data projector dressed up in home cinema clothing. However, its glossy white finish and robust build quality both feel like they belong to a projector worth much more than 500.SEE ALSO: Best TVs RoundupYou can straighten the edges of the H6510BDs images using a provided keystone correction system, but this is never an ideal solution as it essentially requires the projector to digitally distort the pixel structure of the incoming source something that feels especially unfortunate when youre dealing with a full HD projector that would support direct pixel mapping of an HD source.
The built-in sound is merely a convenience tool, for those occasions where no external speakers are available.Acer H6510BD: Set UpAdjusting the size and focus of the H6510BDs image is no more difficult than adjusting simple rings around the lens. This brightness figure raises hopes that the H6510BD might be usable in ambient light an often helpful ability in many normal households while the contrast figure raises hopes that the projector will also deliver a respectable, movie-friendly black level response when watched in a blacked out room.
Acer H6510BD: Design and FeaturesThe H6510BD fits the budget projector look with its size and shape, which are small and straightforwardly rectangular respectively. Still, no other sub-500 projector has optical image shifting either, so its unfair to expect it on the H6510BD.Its pleasing to discover, moreover, that despite being able to run so brightly the H6510BDs lamp is rated to last between 4000 and 7000 hours very decent figures by non-LED standards – depending on what light output setting youve selected. End of story. Have a great day guys!
