7 Reasons For

Vivitek Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Vivitek is one of the superior multimedia projector manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and owners, and Vivitek also has good reviews for its projectors.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Vivitek D517 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that have been available for a similar time to the D517 do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative data projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], or the Panasonic PTAE7000U[plb_1897671_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Vivitek D517 has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the D517 which do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the Acer H7531D[plb_1418806_price], and the Epson PowerLite 98[plb_2397986_price] is also worth considering.

Other data projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to look at include the PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub[pl_2301495_price], or the PowerLite Pro G6900WU[pl_1919039_price] both from Epson or the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the D517 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Vivitek D517 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Vivitek Qumi Q7[plb_2086346_price], or the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
