6 Reasons For

Vivitek Has Good Data Projector Reviews

Data projectors produced by Vivitek are some of the better data projectors according to average user and expert reviews.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Vivitek D8300 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the D8300 do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], and the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Very Bright Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago is 3,500 ANSI lumens. When compared to other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the D8300, the projector brightness of the Vivitek D8300 of 6,500 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest.

Chart Edit

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The Vivitek D8300 has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Projectors that were released around the same time as the D8300 native projector resolutions range from SVGA (800x600) (worst) to WUXGA (1920x1200) (best).

Chart Edit

Very Big Lamp Power

The lamp power of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the D8300 range from 140W to 400W, and the average lamp power is 240W. With a lamp power of 400 Watts, the Vivitek D8300's lamp power is one of the biggest amongst projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The Vivitek D8300 has more HDMI ports than most of the comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago. This data projector is a two HDMI port projector compared to most of the similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago which only have one HDMI port.

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Vivitek D8300 does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the D8300 do have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support 3D image projection. The Vivitek D8300 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think the NEC NP-M311W[plb_1525270_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Vivitek D8300 does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the D8300 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity which you might want to consider including the NEC NP-UM330[plb_1528333_price] which also has a higher rating.

Quite Short Lamp Service Life

The lamp service lives of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years range from 1,500h to 30,000h. When compared to other multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago, the lamp service life of the Vivitek D8300 of only 1,500 hour is one of the shortest.

Chart Edit

Only Three BNC Input Ports

The Vivitek D8300 is a three BNC input port projector. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the D8300 have between three and four BNC input ports.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

Most projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the D8300 have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the Vivitek D8300 which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.

Chart Edit

High Running Costs

The D8300 has an average 1 year running cost of £171 based on typical energy prices, which is in the most expensive 3% of all 92 projectors of this spec and age.

Chart

Only One Component Video in Port

Most 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the D8300 have between one and two component video in ports, including the Vivitek D8300 which has one component video in port.

Chart Edit

Heavy

At 15.5 kilograms, the Vivitek D8300 is very heavy compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago. The average weight of projectors that were launched around the same time as the D8300 is 4.9kg, and the weights range from 230g to 30kg.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level

When compared to other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the D8300 that we have assessed, the Vivitek D8300's noise level of 45 decibels is one of the loudest. The average noise level of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the D8300 is 35dB, and the noise levels range from 26dB to 45dB.

Alternative projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the CP-WX8265[pl_1900979_price] (39dB), or the CP-X8170[pl_1900980_price] (39dB) both from Hitachi.
