Acer H9500BD Review

 

Acer's H9500BD 3D video projector is the most expensive of the three models here, but it has a couple of features the other two lack. Its overall image quality, however, is only on par with projectors in this price range. We'll leave it up to you to...

Not as bright as the Epson 3010, especially in 3D mode; only one pair of glasses included

The H9500BD offers at least two features that the HD33 lacks to help justify the higher price. A 2D to 3D real time conversion mode lets you...well...add a new dimension to 2D content. As with equivalent features in other projectors, the trick enhances...

Notably low price for 1080p 3D. 3D works directly with video sources. 2D to 3D conversion. Zoom. Lens shift

Minor to moderate image quality issues include rainbow artifacts, noise, loss of shadow detail, and 3D crosstalk

The Acer H9500BD home entertainment projector delivers 1080p 2D and 3D plus such niceties as lens shift and a 1.5x zoom at a notably low price, but with some minor image quality issues.

Audioholics has reviewed 3D projectors in the past, but the Acer H9500BD 3D Projector is excellent if you're really into black levels and have a budget of around $1500.

The Acer H9500BD, turned out to be a most pleasant surprise. Shows you what trouble one can get in by starting off with a lot of pre-conceived thoughts

Bright - not the brightnest in the class, but up there ; Handles large screens for 2D viewing ; Respectable overall color ; Skin tones are very good post calibration ; Dynamic iris for black level performance that's excellent for the price range, and...

Colors controls do not allow for calibrating the grayscale. While color is respectable, a grayscale calibration would further improve it ; Warranty is a basic one year. That's less than average - the low end of the range ; Brilliant Color sometimes...

That's it, folks. Tough call on this one, not a "slam dunk" or "pretty much best around", just a projector with lots of good things, and a number of rough edges. I gave it the Special Interest award, because, when "push comes to shove" their target...

Acer H9500BD Review

 

At $1,699 street, it has the brightness and punch necessary to put up a compelling image, whether in 2D or 3D...

Get an extended warranty

 

Acer 3D galsses are hard to find. I've tried other brands but the ACER's have the best image due to their contrast and being made for the projector itself.

Picuture is great, 3d is awesome

First Unit arrived damaged. NewEgg replaced it. Second item had (apparently) had already been registered by somone else.... so I guess I received someone's return? It took a submission of the purchase receipt to Acer to get the right purchase date...

for the price and features, you can't beat it.

The HDMI blurring has been fixed and a color management system has been implemented in the new firmware. In addition, the 3D SBS tearing issue has also been resolved. A "VERY" good buy for $1600-1700. Very good. I posted a review, but NewEgg never...

Menu disappears too quickly. Only one user setting

Consumer review by:

Acer has fixed this unit with firmware

 

Pros: HDMI blur is fixed and picture is sharp now. Excellent 3D. Limited lens shift. Also appears to have full CMS now but I have not tested it with a proper calibration. SBS tearing fixed. Includes pair of glasses which appear to be the same as...

Consumer review by:

Pretty Good....could be better

 

If they would just fix the blurring, I'd give it 4+ stars.....

Pretty sharp picture for movies

There is some blurring via HDMI. This is especially noticeable in gaming. BenQ fixed this in their W7000 model with a firmware update. I've been trying to get Acer's attention to no avail. They really should own up to the issue and fix it. The fact...
