6 Reasons For

Vivitek Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

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

Supports 3D

The Vivitek D557W supports 3D, as do most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the D557W, the Vivitek D557W has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Infocus IN116A is also worth considering.

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

With a service life of lamp of 5,000 hours, the Vivitek D557W has a quite long service life of lamp compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the D557W. The service life of lamps of data projectors of this type and age range from 2,000h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 4,700h.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

The Vivitek D557W has a fairly low power consumption (PowerSave) (only 200 Watts) compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the D557W. The average power consumption (PowerSave) of multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the D557W is 220W, and the power consumption (PowerSave)s range from 0.37W to 290W.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Most multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the D557W do not support full HD. The Vivitek D557W is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also support full HD which you might want to consider including the PJD7820HD, the PRO8600 ($2,500.00), or the PJD8633 all from Viewsonic.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the D557W, the Vivitek D557W does not support wi-Fi.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Optoma EX400, or the Epson EB-Z11000 is also worth considering.

Quite Small Bulb Power

With a bulb power of only 190 Watts, the Vivitek D557W has one of the smaller bulb powers amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the D557W have bulb powers of between 190W and 2,400W.
