Acer H9500BD 2000 Lumens 1080P Full HD 3D Home Theater DLP Projector w/ HDMI & USB
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Updating review following new firmware release 08/02/2012

This review is from: Acer H9500BD 2000 Lumens 1080P Full HD 3D Home Theater DLP Projector w/ HDMI & USB

Pros: I wrote the review below titled "Would be great but for a few flaws". Well, Acer has finally released new firmware that fixes 2 of the 3 issues I orginally complained about: blurring over HDMI, and SBS tearing! Newegg does not allow me to edit my original review, so instead I am creating this new review and giving it 5 stars, as promised.

Cons: You have to return your projector to Acer for the FW fix; it is not user-installable.
Still has very high lag in 3D mode - OK for movies but bad for 3D games.

Other Thoughts: It took Acer far too long to come out with a FW fix for these problems. They would sell many more projectors and make customers a lot happier if they didn't take 6 months to fix things.

3 out of 5 eggs Would be great but for a few flaws 04/20/2012

This review is from: Acer H9500BD 2000 Lumens 1080P Full HD 3D Home Theater DLP Projector w/ HDMI & USB

Pros: Bright image with pretty good black level
3D clarity, detail and depth
Good image quality without needing too much adjustment
OK lag in 2D mode (40-50ms); not horrible, but not great
Lens shift

Cons: Some blurring over HDMI, especially noticeable with PC desktops
Screen tearing in SBS (Side-by-Side) 3D mode, used in some games
Very high lag in 3D mode - OK for movies but bad for 3D games

Other Thoughts: Acer support has not been quick to respond to the above issues, especially the known HDMI blurring problem and the SBS tearing bug. These are probably fixable in firmware but Acer is pretending they don't exist. If they would fix these issues (and improve the lag if possible) the H9500BD would be fantastic! 3 stars until they address these flaws with a firmware update, then 5 stars!
