10 Reasons For

Vivitek Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Multimedia projectors built by Vivitek are some of the better multimedia projectors according to average expert and user reviews.

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the D5280U which do not support Full HD projection, the Vivitek D5280U supports Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Viewsonic PJD7822HDL ($579.99).

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Vivitek D5280U has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors that have been around for more than two years.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Ricoh PJ WX2130, or the Viewsonic PJD7822HDL ($579.99).

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Vivitek D5280U is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all similar spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the worst resolution is VGA (640x480) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

Very Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 4,500 ANSI lumens, the Vivitek D5280U has a very bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 2200:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the D5280U. The projector brightness of 2200:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 2,500 ANSI lumens to 4,500 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,100 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The Vivitek D5280U has more built-in speakers than most of the 2200:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the D5280U. Most of the projectors of a similar age and spec to the D5280U only have one built-in speaker, however this multimedia projector has two built-in speakers.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Vivitek D5280U has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the projectors that are a similar age to the D5280U. This projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port projector compared to most of the projectors of this spec and age which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Two Audio in Ports

The Vivitek D5280U has more audio in ports than most of the projectors of a similar spec and age to the D5280U. This projector is a two audio in port projector compared to most of the similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago which only have one audio in port.

Chart Edit

Very Big Lamp Power

The lamp power of multimedia projectors of this spec and age range from 180W to 330W. When compared to other 2200:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the D5280U, the lamp power of the Vivitek D5280U of 330 Watts is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

The RMS rated power of multimedia projectors of this age and type range from 2W to 5W, and the average RMS rated power is 2.6W. At 3 Watts, the Vivitek D5280U has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the D5280U.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Vivitek D5280U does not support 3D image projection, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Viewsonic PJD7822HDL ($579.99) is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most multimedia projectors of this type and age do not support WiFi connectivity. The Vivitek D5280U is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

At only 2,000 hours, the Vivitek D5280U has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years. The lamp service lives of 2200:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the D5280U range from 2,000h to 8,000h, and the average lamp service life is 3,900h.
