13 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the DH558 will cost only £81 over 1 year to run, which is in the cheapest 16% of all 25 projectors of this age and type.

Vivitek Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Projectors built by Vivitek generally have good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Vivitek DH558 supports 3D image projection, unlike most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the DH558 which do not support 3D image projection.

Alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might want to look at include the Epson EH-TW570[plb_2577305_price], or the Benq W1110[plb_3103892_price] which has better reviews.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Vivitek DW814[plb_3383743_price] is also worth considering.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Vivitek DH558 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than a year ago do not support Full HD projection.

Alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available that you might also want to consider include the Epson EB-U04[plb_3024676_price] which is cheaper.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the EB-U32[pl_3044338_price], or the 1264[pl_3127259_price] both from Epson.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Vivitek DH558 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than a year also have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Epson EB-U04[plb_3024676_price] which is cheaper; or the Epson EB-W32[plb_3059517_price] which has better reviews.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Vivitek DX881ST[plb_3219949_price] is also worth considering.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The Vivitek DH558 has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all data projectors of this age and type the resolution ranges from WXGA (1280x800) to WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Vivitek DH558 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over four times the resolution of a 800 x 600 (SVGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by multimedia projectors of this type and age. In addition, this projector supports a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080).

This projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution across all data projectors of this age and spec.

An 800 x 600 (SVGA) graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of projector.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the DH558 is 35dB. At only 33 decibels, the Vivitek DH558 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released one year ago.

Alternative projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the DW814[pl_3383743_price] (36dB), or the DX881ST[pl_3219949_price] (36dB) both from Vivitek.

Fairly Big Offset

The Vivitek DH558 has one of the bigger offsets (115 percent) amongst similar spec projectors of this age. Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the DH558 the offsets range from 8% to 130%, and the average offset is 71%.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many data projectors of this age and type.

Very Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode

At only 200 Watts, the Vivitek DH558 has a quite low power consumption in economy mode compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the DH558. The power consumption in economy mode of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the DH558 range from 200W to 300W.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors that were released around the same time as the DH558 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Vivitek DH558 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Epson EB-U04[plb_3024676_price] or the Epson EB-W32[plb_3059517_price].

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of similar spec data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the DH558 is 2,000 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 5,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,300 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Vivitek DH558 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type.

There are a number of alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available that you might want to look at including a cheaper projector such as the Epson EB-U04[plb_3024676_price] or you might consider a better rated projector such as the EH-TW570[pl_2577305_price], or the VS345[pl_3043985_price] both from Epson.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Vivitek DW882ST[plb_3704440_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens).
