10 Reasons For

Vivitek Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

Data projectors produced by Vivitek are some of the better data projectors according to average expert and user reviews.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Vivitek DW814 supports 3D image projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of this age and type do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Epson EH-TW570[plb_2577305_price] which has better reviews.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection which you might want to consider including the Vivitek DH558[plb_3383971_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the DW814, the Vivitek DW814 has a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Epson EB-U04[plb_3024676_price] which is cheaper; or the Epson EB-W32[plb_3059517_price] which has better reviews.

Other projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to look at include the Vivitek DH558[plb_3383971_price].

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Vivitek DW814 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over four times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 800 x 600 (SVGA).

This projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution across all similar spec projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

The worst supported resolution across comparable types of projector is 800 x 600 (SVGA).

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

Data projectors of a similar age and type to the DW814 have projector brightness of between 2,000 ANSI lumens and 5,000 ANSI lumens. At 3,800 ANSI lumens, the Vivitek DW814 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the DW814.

Chart Edit

Three Audio in Ports

The Vivitek DW814 has more audio in ports than most of the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than a year ago. This Vivitek multimedia projector is a three audio in port multimedia projector compared to most of the comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the DW814 which only have between one and two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Vivitek DW814 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port data projector. Most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched more than a year ago only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of 10 Watts, the Vivitek DW814 has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than a year ago. The RMS rated power of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the DW814 range from 1W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 5.2W.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Lamp Power

The Vivitek DW814 has a fairly big lamp power (240 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the DW814. Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the DW814 the lamp power range from 170W to 310W, and the average lamp power is 220W.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Vivitek DW814 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors of this spec and age also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Epson EB-U04[plb_3024676_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors of this age and spec do not support WiFi connectivity. The Vivitek DW814 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Epson EB-W32[plb_3059517_price]; or the Epson EB-U04[plb_3024676_price].
