12 Reasons For

One Industry Award

01net.com gave this projector a "4 Star" award.

Expert Reviews Are Good

This projector received an expert rating of 80 out of 100 from 01net.com.

Vivitek Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

We calculated the average reviews for all Vivitek data projectors and also specifically for Vivitek projectors and found that in both cases Vivitek had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Only Released Eight Months Ago

Vivitek only released the H1188 eight months ago. Newer data projectors like this one are likely to use better technology.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Vivitek H1188 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other recently released similar spec data projectors do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors which support Full HD projection and we think the Epson Home Cinema 2045 ($699.00) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to look at include the Optoma H183X ($455.73).

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Vivitek H1188 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the H1188.

It may also be worth considering one of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Epson Home Cinema 2045 ($699.00).

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Optoma H183X ($455.73).

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Vivitek H1188 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA). In addition, this multimedia projector supports a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080).

This projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution across all latest projectors.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution across comparable types of projector.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the other recently released projectors support 3D image projection, however the Vivitek H1188 does not support 3D image projection.

It is worth considering alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Epson Home Cinema 2045 ($699.00) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other new projectors, the Vivitek H1188 does not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Epson Home Cinema 2045 ($699.00), or the Vivitek Qumi Q6 ($493.99).
