5 Reasons For

Vivitek Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Projectors built by Vivitek are some of the better projectors according to average expert and user reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Vivitek D556 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the D556.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports a graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is typical of many projectors that came out around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

With a service life of lamp in economic mode of 10,000 hours, the Vivitek D556 has one of the longer service life of lamp in economic mode amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Across all the multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the D556 the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 3,000h to 20,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

The widths of data projectors of a comparable type and age to the D556 range from 230mm to 750mm. The Vivitek D556 is quite narrow (only 274.6 millimeters) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the D556.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Vivitek D556 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the D556 do support 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the LG PA72G[plb_1580755_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Vivitek D556 does not support Full HD projection, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the D556 also do not support Full HD projection.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to look at include the Viewsonic PJD7820HD[plb_1536139_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Vivitek D556 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the D556 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Optoma EX400[plb_2110318_price], or the Epson EB-Z11005[plb_2549634_price].

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Vivitek D556 is SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768).

A SVGA (800x600) native projector resolution is in fact the worst resolution across all projectors of a similar age and type to the D556.

The best resolution across comparable types of data projector is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the D556 range from 700 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,200 ANSI lumens. At only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Vivitek D556 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the D556.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this projector and we think the Infocus IN112A[plb_2178166_price], and the Viewsonic PJD6543W[plb_1530990_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the Epson EB-Z9870[plb_3060383_price] (8,700 ANSI lumens).

Quite Low RMS Rated Power

The RMS rated power of data projectors of this age and spec range from 2W to 30W, and the average RMS rated power is 6.8W. When compared to other comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the D556, the Vivitek D556's RMS rated power of only 2 Watts is one of the lowest.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Matrix Size

With a matrix size of only 0.55 inches, the Vivitek D556 has one of the smaller matrix sizes amongst similar spec data projectors of this age. The matrix sizes of projectors that have been available for more than two years range from 0.45" to 1.1", and the average matrix size is 0.61".

3 Other reasons to consider the Vivitek D556

The D556 is typical compared to the other 59 projectors of this type and age that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the D556 is £81.

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when this projector was released.

Average Noise Level

At 35 decibels, the Vivitek D556 has a relatively standard noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.

Other 35dB noise level projectors currently available that you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic PJD7820HD[plb_1536139_price].

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Vivitek D555[plb_2500114_price] (35dB).
