11 Reasons For

Only Eight Months Old

This 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector was only released eight months ago, so it is likely to use more advanced technology than some of the older projectors.

Supports Full HD Projection

Most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the H1185HD support Full HD projection, including the H1185HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which support Full HD projection to this projector and we think a higher rated product such as the Benq W1070 (£449.00), the NEC M362 (£429.00), and the Acer P1510 (£399.99) are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other latest comparable spec multimedia projectors have a built-in speaker, including the H1185HD.

It is worth considering alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker including the PT-LW330, or the PT-TW340 both from Panasonic or the Benq W1070 (£449.00) which have a better Kagoo Rating™.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The H1185HD 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).

A 1080p (1920x1080) native projector resolution is actually the best resolution amongst all projectors that have been available for around the same time as the H1185HD.

The worst resolution amongst comparable types of projector is WXGA (1280x800).

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors that have a resolution of 1080p (1920x1080) and we think a better rated product such as the Epson 1985WU, the Benq W1080 (£749.00), and the Acer P1515 (£788.71) are also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The Vivitek H1185HD supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). In addition, this projector supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 720 (HD 720). The resolution of all comparable spec data projectors that were launched in the last 12 months ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

If the resolution of this data projector is too low for you then you might want to consider the Optoma DH1008 (£399.99) (1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated), 1280 x 768 (WXGA and higher rated), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated), 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080 and higher rated), 640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated), 800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated).

Big Matrix Size

At 0.65 inches, the Vivitek H1185HD has a quite big matrix size compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the H1185HD. The matrix sizes of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the H1185HD range from 0.55" to 0.76", and the average matrix size is 0.61".

Chart Edit

Supports Two Video Formats

The H1185HD has a greater number of supported video formats than most projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it. The most commonly supported video format is MPEG, but this video format is not supported by this Vivitek projector. The video formats H.264 and MPEG4 are also supported by this multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Supports Seven Video Modes

The number of supported video mode on the H1185HD is more than most latest data projectors. This multimedia projector supports a 1080p video mode, which is the most commonly supported video mode supported by multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the H1185HD. The video modes "1080i", "480i", "480p", "576i", "576p" and "720p" are also supported by this data projector.

Chart Edit

1.5:1 Zoom Ratio

The biggest zoom ratio supported by the H1185HD is 1.5:1. That's over two times the zoom ratio of the most common zoom ratio of 1.2:1. The zoom ratio of all similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the H1185HD ranges from 1.4:1 (worst) to 1.7:1 (best).

Chart Edit

Supports One Image Format

The number of supported image formats on the H1185HD is more than most similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for the last year. This projector supports a JPG image format, which is the most frequently supported image format supported by recently released projectors.

Chart Edit

A Bit Narrow

At only 285 millimeters, the Vivitek H1185HD is quite narrow compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that came out in the last 12 months. Latest 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors have widths of between 280mm and 380mm.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The H1185HD does not support 3D image projection, although this is within the context that most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the H1185HD also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the W1070 (£449.00), or the TH682 (£656.68) both from Benq or the Acer P1510 (£399.99) are also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most of the new 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors, including the H1185HD, do not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors with a WiFi connectivity which you might want to consider including the EB-1970W (£1,092.15), or the EB-1975W (£984.20) both from Epson or the NEC M402.

Very Dim Projector Brightness

Comparable spec projectors that are less than a year old have projector brightnesses of between 2,200 ANSI lumens and 5,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,600 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the H1185HD has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other newly released 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the 1980WU (£907.01) (4400 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the 1985WU (4800 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Epson.

Very Dim Lamp Power in Economic Mode

The lamp powers in economic mode of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the H1185HD range from 130W to 5,000W, and the average lamp power in economic mode is 660W. With a lamp power in economic mode of only 150 Watts, the H1185HD has a fairly dim lamp power in economic mode compared to most of the other newly released comparable spec projectors.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

Most projectors that have been available for a similar time to the H1185HD have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the H1185HD which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The H1185HD is a one USB 2.0 port projector.

2 Other reasons to consider the Vivitek H1185HD

Running Costs Are Average

The average running cost of the H1185HD is £106 over 1 year based on typical energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 20 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released in the last 12 months.

Average Noise Level

The H1185HD has a relatively typical noise level (35 decibels) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the H1185HD.

We compared this projector to all the other 35dB noise level data projectors and we think a higher scoring projector such as the EB-1430Wi, and the EB-1420Wi (£1,327.57) both from Epson are also worth considering.
