12 Reasons For

Vivitek Projectors Have Good Reviews

Vivitek data projectors have an average rating of 79 out of 100, which is in the top 53% of all projector brands that we have assessed.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Unlike most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the DH558 which do not support 3D image projection, the Vivitek DH558 supports 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection and we think a cheaper projector such as the Vivitek DW814 or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the Epson EH-TW570 are also worth considering.

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the DH558 which do not support Full HD projection, the Vivitek DH558 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 cheaper data projectors such as the Epson EB-U04.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the EB-U32, or the 1264 ($500.99) both from Epson.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than a year, the Vivitek DH558 has a built-in speaker.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think a cheaper data projector such as the Vivitek DW814, and the Epson EB-U04 or you might consider a higher rated data projector such as the Epson EB-W32 are also worth considering.
