4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The Vivitek H1186 does not support 3D, although this is within the context that most of the other data projectors that were launched around the same time as the H1186 also do not support 3D.

Alternative projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to look at include the Epson Home Cinema 2045[plb_3844211_price], or the Optoma GT5500[plb_3451140_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Epson Home Cinema 2045[plb_3844211_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the Epson Home Cinema 2045[plb_3844211_price] (2,200 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
