6 Reasons For

Vivitek Has Good Data Projector Reviews

Data projectors produced by Vivitek have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all multimedia projectors (not just data projectors) and found that Vivitek also has good reviews across its entire range.

Supports Full HD

The Vivitek D517 supports full HD. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the D517 do not support full HD.

Alternative data projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to look at include the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Vivitek D517 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the D517.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Acer H7531D[plb_1418806_price], or the Epson PowerLite 98[plb_2397986_price] which has better reviews.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The Vivitek D517 does not support 3D, unlike most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the D517.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support 3D including the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Vivitek D517 does not support wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support wi-Fi.

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price] which also has a higher rating.

4 Other reasons to consider the Vivitek D517

Released Over Four Years Ago

This projector has been on the market for over four years.

Average Projector Brightness

The Vivitek D517 has a pretty average projector brightness (3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including the Epson EB-1771[plb_1748930_price], or the Optoma X305[plb_1726305_price] which has better reviews.

If this Vivitek multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the Sony VPL-SW630[plb_2442309_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens).

Average Noise Level

The Vivitek D517 has a fairly standard noise level (33 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

We compared all the other 33dB noise level multimedia projectors to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq LX60ST[plb_1451093_price] is also worth considering.

Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth looking at include the Optoma W304M[plb_1724146_price] (33dB).
