6 Reasons For

Vivitek Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

On average projectors produced by Vivitek are rated 79%, which is in the top 53% of all projector manufacturers that we have looked at.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Vivitek D556 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the D556.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the LG PA72G[plb_1580755_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports a graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is typical of many 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The Vivitek D556 has a very long service life of lamp in economic mode (10,000 hours) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type. The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the D556 is 3,000h, the longest is 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 5,900h.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode

15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the D556 have power consumption in economy mode of between 190W and 830W, and the average power consumption in economy mode is 580W. At only 200 Watts, the Vivitek D556 has a quite low power consumption in economy mode compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the D556.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

Across all the similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the D556 the widths range from 230mm to 750mm, and the average width is 350mm. The Vivitek D556 is one of the narrower 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the D556 (only 274.6 millimeters) amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Vivitek D556 does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the D556.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Vivitek D556 does not support Full HD projection, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Viewsonic PJD7820HD[plb_1536139_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Vivitek D556 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the D556 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Optoma EX400[plb_2110318_price], or the Epson EB-Z11000[plb_2549617_price] is also worth considering.

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Vivitek D556 is 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 across all projectors of this spec and age.

The best resolution across comparable types of projector is WUXGA (1920x1200).
