6 Reasons For

Vivitek Has Good Data Projector Reviews

Data projectors built by Vivitek generally have good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the D552 which do not support Full HD projection, the Vivitek D552 supports 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 Viewsonic PJD7820HD ($764.37), or the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 2030 ($1,178.54).

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Vivitek D552 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of this age and type.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the LG PA72G is also worth considering.

Fairly Big Offset

With an offset of 128 percent, the Vivitek D552 has a fairly big offset compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the D552. Across all the similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago the offsets range from 13% to 130%, and the average offset is 97%.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

The shortest lamp service life of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the D552 is 2,000h and the longest is 30,000h. The Vivitek D552 has a fairly long lamp service life (5,000 hours) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the D552.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

At only 274.6 millimeters, the Vivitek D552 is quite narrow compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the D552. The average width of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the D552 is 350mm, and the widths range from 230mm to 750mm.

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Vivitek D552 does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago which support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Vivitek D552 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Optoma EX400, or the Epson EB-Z11000 is also worth considering.

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The Vivitek D552 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768).

A SVGA (800x600) native projector resolution is actually the worst resolution amongst all multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) native projector resolution is the best resolution amongst similar types of projector.

Very Small Lamp Power

The average lamp power of multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years is 290W, and the lamp power range from 190W to 2,400W. The Vivitek D552 has a quite small lamp power (only 190 Watts) compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the D552.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Lamp Power in Economic Mode

Data projectors of this spec and age have lamp powers in economic mode of between 160W and 10,000W. The Vivitek D552 has one of the dimmer lamp powers in economic mode (only 160 Watts) amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of only 2 Watts, the Vivitek D552 has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the D552. The average RMS rated power of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the D552 is 7.1W.

Chart Edit

Only Two VGA (D-Sub) Ports

Most 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the D552 have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the Vivitek D552 which has two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio in Port

The Vivitek D552 is a one audio in port projector. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the D552 have one audio in port.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

With a noise level in economy mode of 32 decibels, the Vivitek D552 has one of the louder noise levels in economy mode amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The quietest noise level in economy mode of multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the D552 is 26dB, the loudest is 35dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 31dB.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

At only 0.55 inches, the Vivitek D552 has a quite small matrix size compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the D552. Across all the projectors that are a comparable age to the D552 the matrix sizes range from 0.45" to 1.1".

3 Other reasons to consider the Vivitek D552

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Vivitek released the D552.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 35 decibels, the Vivitek D552 has a relatively average noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the D552.

Alternative 35dB noise level projectors currently available which you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic PJD7820HD ($764.37).

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Vivitek D552 has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that came out more than two years ago.

We compared this projector to all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Infocus IN112A, and the Viewsonic PJD6383S is also worth considering.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the EW400 (4,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the EH415 (4,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Optoma.
