6 Reasons For

Vivitek Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

We checked the reviews from users and experts of hundreds of multimedia projectors to determine an average rating for each projector manufacturer. On average Vivitek data projectors have good ratings from owners and experts.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the D557W, the Vivitek D557W supports 3D image projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the PJD6235[pl_1530988_price], and the PJD5533W[pl_1500188_price] both from Viewsonic or the Infocus IN126[plb_2194104_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Vivitek D557W has a built-in speaker. Most of the other data projectors of this type and age also have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the PJD6235[pl_1530988_price], or the PJD5533W[pl_1500188_price] both from Viewsonic which has better reviews; or the Infocus IN2126A[plb_2194106_price] which is cheaper.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The Vivitek D557W has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most common native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768). Across all 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the D557W the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

Projectors of a similar age and type to the D557W have lamp service lives of between 2,000h and 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,700h. The Vivitek D557W has one of the longer lamp service lives (5,000 hours) amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

Across all the projectors of a similar spec and age to the D557W the widths range from 230mm to 750mm. With a width of only 275 millimeters, the Vivitek D557W is quite narrow compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the D557W.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Vivitek D557W does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection which you might also want to look at including the Viewsonic PJD6683WS[plb_1514463_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other data projectors of this spec and age, the Vivitek D557W does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Optoma EX400[plb_2110318_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Loud Noise Level

With a noise level of 35 decibels, the Vivitek D557W has one of the louder noise levels amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The noise levels of projectors of a comparable age and spec to the D557W range from 26dB to 40dB.

Alternative multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the PJD6235[pl_1530988_price] (32dB and higher rated), the PJD5533W[pl_1500188_price] (33dB and higher rated), or the PJD6683WS[pl_1514463_price] (33dB and higher rated) all from Viewsonic.

Very Small Lamp Power

Projectors of this type and age have lamp power of between 190W and 2,400W. At only 190 Watts, the Vivitek D557W has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

2 Other reasons to consider the Vivitek D557W

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Vivitek released the D557W.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Vivitek D557W has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the D557W.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including a cheaper projector such as the Viewsonic PJD6245[plb_1530989_price] or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the PJD6683WS[pl_1514463_price], or the PJD6543W[pl_1530990_price] both from Viewsonic.
