5 Reasons For

Vivitek Has Good Projector Reviews

Vivitek is one of the better rated multimedia projector manufacturers according to average owner and expert review score data that we have collected for all projectors.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the D968U-WT, the D968U-WT has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the D968U-WT is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) native projector resolution is in fact the best resolution amongst all 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

The worst resolution amongst similar types of data projector is SVGA (800x600).

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the D968U-WT have projector brightness of between 300 ANSI lumens and 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,300 ANSI lumens. The D968U-WT has a quite bright projector brightness (4,800 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 4,800 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Epson 1985WU[plb_2785330_price].

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the Panasonic PT-VX600[plb_3284828_price] (5,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Fairly Big Lamp Power

Across all the projectors that have been available for around the same time as the D968U-WT the lamp power range from 15W to 840W. At 310 Watts, the D968U-WT has a quite big lamp power compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the D968U-WT.

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support 3D image projection. The D968U-WT is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago, the Vivitek D968U-WT does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Epson 1975W[plb_3009713_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The D968U-WT does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the D968U-WT also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Benq W1500[plb_1561671_price], or the Epson PowerLite 1222[plb_2225031_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the D968U-WT is 1,000h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 7,400h. The service life of lamp in economic mode of the Vivitek D968U-WT of only 3,500 hours is one of the shortest amongst projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Lamp Service Life

The average lamp service life of data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the D968U-WT is 6,400h, and the lamp service lives range from 500h to 30,000h. At only 2,500 hours, the D968U-WT has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the D968U-WT.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

Most similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, including the D968U-WT which has one USB 2.0 port.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio in Port

The D968U-WT is a one audio in port multimedia projector. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for more than two years have between one and two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

Quite High Power Consumption in Economy Mode

Similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the D968U-WT have power consumption in economy mode of between 72W and 420W. The D968U-WT has a fairly high power consumption in economy mode (300 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the D968U-WT.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

Alternative 40dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available which you might also want to look at include the Vivitek D966HD[plb_2358451_price] which has better reviews.

Alternative projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the PT-DX100[pl_2045222_price] (40dB), or the PT-DZ870[pl_1968831_price] (40dB) both from Panasonic.
