4 Reasons For

Supports Full HD Projection

Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the D5185HD do not support Full HD projection, however the Vivitek D5185HD supports Full HD projection.

Different data projectors which support Full HD projection that you might want to also look at include a higher scoring product such as the NEC NP-PE401H, or the Vivitek D5110W-WNL (£1,465.20).

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The Vivitek D5185HD has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution. Across all one year old 12000:1 contrast ratio data projectors the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors that have a resolution of 1080p (1920x1080) and we think a better rated product such as the NEC NP-PE401H, the Hitachi CP-DH300 (£571.09), and the Optoma EH503 are also worth considering.

Projectors with a higher resolution that might be worth considering include the WUX-400 (WUXGA (1920x1200 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the WUX-450 (WUXGA (1920x1200 and higher rated) and higher rated) both from Canon or the Sony VPL-FH500L (£7,662.62) (WUXGA (1920x1200 and higher rated) and higher rated).
