6 Reasons For

Vivitek Has Good Projector Reviews

Multimedia projectors built by Vivitek generally have good reviews compared to other brands.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the D557W, the Vivitek D557W supports 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Optoma ML1000[plb_1725906_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Vivitek D557W has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the D557W.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The Vivitek D557W has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. The worst resolution of all projectors that have been around for more than two years is SVGA (800x600) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

At 5,000 hours, the Vivitek D557W has a fairly long lamp service life compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the D557W. The average lamp service life of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the D557W is 4,800h.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

With a width of only 275 millimeters, the Vivitek D557W is one of the narrower 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the D557W amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The average width of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago is 350mm.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Vivitek D557W does not support Full HD projection, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the D557W also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Viewsonic PJD7820HD[plb_1536139_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Vivitek D557W does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Optoma EX400[plb_2110318_price], or the Epson EB-Z11005[plb_2549634_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Loud Noise Level

The Vivitek D557W has one of the louder noise levels (35 decibels) amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The average noise level of multimedia projectors of this age and type is 33dB.

Alternative 35dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available which you might want to consider include the Viewsonic PJD7820HD[plb_1536139_price] which has better reviews.

Other data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Vivitek D555[plb_2500114_price] (35dB).

Very Small Lamp Power

Comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the D557W have lamp power of between 190W and 2,400W. The Vivitek D557W has a quite small lamp power (only 190 Watts) compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the D557W.

3 Other reasons to consider the Vivitek D557W

Average Running Costs

The D557W is typical compared to the other 59 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years that we have assessed for running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the D557W will cost £81 over 1 year to run.

Released Over Three Years Ago

This data projector was released over three years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

The Vivitek D557W has a pretty standard projector brightness (3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the D557W.

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