Get an extended warranty

Zane U., Newegg
29 January 2013
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: Picuture is great, 3d is awesome.
  • Cons: 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 corrected. 1 Week prior to the warranty running o...

Projector Lottery - Beautiful when it's Working.

James D., Newegg
14 December 2012
  • Summary: I'm waiting for a replacement from Newegg right now. Unfortuantely, the projector cannot be refunded according to the return policy. I'd steer clear of this unit if I could do it again. Depending on how you value the key features at this pricepoint, that will certainly influence your decision.
  • Pros: Beautiful image when projecting at 100" in my theater room. 3d Upconversion is novel and works pretty well for TV. I've found the blacks to be pretty impressive with the caveat that you need to do some additional calibration of the Dynamic Iris functionality from the Service Menu to keep it from ...
  • Cons: Buying an H9500 is like buying a lottery ticket. Poor, poor, poor QA on Acers part. I understand these are high-precision instruments and have sensitive bulbs, but there are numerous other options out there (albeit, with fewer features) which appear to be much more reliable initially. My first un...

Pretty Good....could be better

Lindey C., Newegg
1 May 2012
  • Summary: If they would just fix the blurring, I'd give it 4+ stars.....
  • Pros: Pretty sharp picture for movies
  • Cons: 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 that they won't, doesn't inspire confidence in o...

Very loud in Eco mode

Lance E., Newegg
24 April 2012
  • Summary: I'm sending it back for a replacement, since it can't be returned due to the return policy for this item. Hopefully the replacement will have a working fan controller. Color/Calibration controls are extremely limited, but that's well documented on the discussion boards.
  • Pros: Bright with very good blacks. I haven't tried 3D yet.
  • Cons: Fan is reasonably quiet at initial power on in eco mode (or normal mode for that matter). The fan goes to full blast, probably 40dB-ish after a few minutes of use. It's useless at that noise level in a media room. Lens shift doesn't work smoothly.

Not recommended right now.

Michael D., Newegg
20 April 2012
  • Summary: This blurring is very evident in Windows desktop viewing via the DVI/HDMI input and it does affect video viewing though the 9500 does a pretty good job with that. I am the one currently battling Acer tech support and customer care about the issue and until they fix it like BenQ did, I say buy...
  • Pros: Has a lot of potential and features. Good price and comes with glasses. Ghost free 3D, yes Ghost free, just try to find it. A totally awesome picture via the VGA input. BTW the HDMI input has a really good 3D picture.
  • Cons: I have had the H9500BD for about 3 months and cannot recommend it right now. It has a 1:1 Pixel mapping issue which causes a blurring of single pixel text and lines on the HDMI/DVI input circuit. To get the best 1080P picture you must use the VGA input. If you are OK with that then buy it. Acer h...

Bild super, leider schon zweimal Defekt

snoopyjana, Amazon
15 December 2012
  • Summary: Nachdem unser alter Acer-Beamer nach mehreren Jahren den Geist aufgegeben hat, haben wir uns für den Acer H9500BD als Nachfolger entschieden. Das erste Gerät wurde nach etwas über einer Woche geliefert und wanderte schon beim Aufbauen wieder in die Verpackung zurück, das Gehäuse hatte einen dicken...
