10 Reasons For

Vivitek Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

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

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Vivitek DW814 supports 3D image projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of this type and age do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the Vivitek DH558[plb_3383971_price] which is cheaper; or the Benq W1110[plb_3103892_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Infocus IN1116[plb_3367139_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched more than a year ago, the Vivitek DW814 has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think a cheaper data projector such as the 1264[pl_3127259_price], and the EB-U32[pl_3044338_price] both from Epson or you might consider a higher scoring data projector such as the Benq W1110[plb_3103892_price] are also worth considering.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Vivitek DW814 is 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 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than a year ago.

This data projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution amongst all 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released one year ago.

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

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than a year ago range from 2,000 ANSI lumens to 5,000 ANSI lumens. The Vivitek DW814 has one of the brighter projector brightness (3,800 ANSI lumens) amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Three Audio in Ports

Most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age only have between one and two audio in ports, however the Vivitek DW814 has three audio in ports.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Vivitek DW814 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the data projectors of this spec and age. This multimedia projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port projector compared to most of the multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the DW814 which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of 10 Watts, the Vivitek DW814 has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the DW814. The RMS rated power of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released one year ago range from 1W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 4.9W.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

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

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Lamp Power

The Vivitek DW814 has one of the bigger lamp power (240 Watts) amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The smallest lamp power of data projectors of this spec and age is 170W and the biggest is 310W.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Vivitek DW814 does not support Full HD projection, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of this age and type also do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to consider including the Benq W1110[plb_3103892_price]; or the 1264[pl_3127259_price], or the EB-U32[pl_3044338_price] both from Epson.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the DW814 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Vivitek DW814 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the EB-U32[pl_3044338_price], or the EB-U04[pl_3024676_price] both from Epson or the Epson EB-W32[plb_3059517_price] are also worth considering.

Running Costs Are Very High

The DW814 is one of the most expensive to run 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than a year ago that we have analysed for running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the DW814 will cost £107 over 1 year to run.

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The average lamp service life of comparable spec data projectors that have been available for more than a year is 4,500h, and the lamp service lives range from 2,500h to 7,000h. With a lamp service life of only 3,500 hours, the Vivitek DW814 has one of the shorter lamp service lives amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

With a service life of lamp in economic mode of only 5,000 hours, the Vivitek DW814 has one of the shorter service life of lamp in economic mode amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The service life of lamp in economic mode of projectors of a comparable age and spec to the DW814 range from 3,500h to 10,000h.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The Vivitek DW814 is a one USB 2.0 port projector.

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Port

Most 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the DW814 have between one and two HDMI ports, including the Vivitek DW814 which has one HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Quite High Power Consumption in Economy Mode

The lowest power consumption in economy mode of projectors of a comparable type and age to the DW814 is 200W and the highest is 300W. The Vivitek DW814 has one of the higher power consumption in economy mode (260 Watts) amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

3 Other reasons to consider the Vivitek DW814

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Vivitek released the DW814.

Average Noise Level

At 36 decibels, the Vivitek DW814 has a fairly standard noise level compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the DW814.

We compared this data projector to all the other 36dB noise level data projectors and we think cheaper projectors such as the DW882ST[pl_3704440_price], and the DX881ST[pl_3219949_price] both from Vivitek is also worth considering.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the Epson EB-U04[plb_3024676_price] (37dB) which is also cheaper.
