Acer H5380BD

 

An entry-level 2D and 3D home entertainment projector, the Acer H5380BD offers a low price, 720p HD resolution, and support for 3D with Blu-ray players and other video devices.

Inexpensive. Native 720p resolution. HDMI port supports Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) for easy connection to MHL-enabled mobile devices

Low volume. No 3D glasses included

As the successor to the Acer H5370BD, which is discontinued but still widely available online at this writing, the Acer H5380BD ($549.99) shares the same basic description. It's an entry-level home-entertainment projector for 2D and 3D, and it's a...

Acer H5380BD Home Entertainment Projector Preview

 

Preview: At $550, the Acer H5380BD is a great solution for those on a budget, with a setup that is likely to change in the near future, or that are looking for a projector for the home and office.

Who would want a 720p projector? Plenty of people. How about people thatwant to save money, people that aren't projecting such a big image that theyneed 1080p much less 4K, etc. At $550, the Acer H5380BD is a greatsolution for those on a budget, with a...

The Best $500 Projector

 

The best $500 projector is the Acer H5380BD. It offers the best overall picture quality that's comparable to our favorite $1,000 projector. It has the best combo of contrast ratio and brightness to create an image that's better than the competition.

The Acer combines a decent contrast ratio and high brightness to create an image that’s just better than the competition. It’s a lot more projector than you’d expect for the money, and our pick for the best $500 projector.

love it

 

I bought this before there were any reviews on here right after this model was released and that's not something i normally do and it was a great purchase, no regrets.

Great picture / I use it on a dark blue wall and the picture is great ; good price / outperforms (in my opinion) a buddies BenQ that cost 2x as much

mounting to a universal ceiling mount was tricky

If you need a bright, 720 machine, go for this

 

I think the scare about DLP rainbows is over-hyped. I can see them, but only on a very few scenes and then only if I try.

Very Bright. Long life bulb. 5000hrs. Small and white. Hides easily on the ceiling. MHL HDMI port. Easy to set up, color close to perfect out of the box. No issue with DLP rainbows with me or any of my friends. I purchased this projector for a friend...

Gets hot, but no problems so far

Set for 720p

 

Once again set your outputs on your sources to the native mode 720p and you should have no issues.

I also bought the last version of this projector so I thought I would comment to balance the negative comment of the other guy who did as well. It has been a great projector with my kids and grandkids running it nonstop for almost 4 years now with no...

For the money absolutely none. Some people seems to have trouble with the earlier model when they ran it as 1080p

amazing

 

I wanted a project for a long time, so after doing tons of research on them, i thought that the "rainbow effect" would bother me. so when i first bought a projector, i went this the epson home cinema 730hd, which is an LCD projector and supposedly has...

Awesome entry level GAMING projector

 

I picked this projector up for under 4 bills with a promo code. For that price, this projector simply cannot be beat! The family loves it, even the wife was mondo impressed while watching GoT and the NBA finals on it.

144hz 3D, HDML with MHL, decent response time, bright enough for a family room, & good contrast for the price ; This projector will do true 120hz at 720p resolution! I know it's not 1080p but at 720p. even with a mid-range card. you can turn on ALL the...

1 yr warranty, not 1080P, no lens shift
