Expert review site Projectorcentral.com mentioned in their review of the Vivitek H1186 “The Vivitek H1186-WT is another new home entertainment projector that takes full HD 1080p resolution below $700”.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Vivitek H1186 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other latest similar spec data projectors do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Epson Home Cinema 2045[plb_3844211_price].

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Optoma H183X[plb_3381810_price], or the Infocus SP1080[plb_3696418_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Vivitek H1186 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other recently released projectors.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the Epson Home Cinema 2045[plb_3844211_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the H183X[pl_3381810_price], or the X340[pl_3495228_price] both from Optoma.
