9 Reasons For

Vivitek Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

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

Supports 3D

The Vivitek DW814 supports 3D, unlike most of the other projectors of this age and type which do not support 3D.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which support 3D currently available which you might also want to look at including the Benq W1110[plb_3103892_price], or the Infocus IN118HDXC[plb_2945391_price] which has better reviews.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this projector and we think the Infocus IN1116[plb_3367139_price] is also worth considering.
