Over Two Years Old

This projector has been on the market for over two years.

3840 X 2160 Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the JVC DLA-X55R is 3840 x 2160. That's over four times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). This multimedia projector also support a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 1024 (SXGA).

If the resolution of this projector is too low for you then you might want to consider the ZW212ST (1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 720 (HD 720), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), 640 x 480 (VGA)), or the ZX212ST (1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA), 640 x 480 (VGA), 800 x 600 (SVGA)) both from Optoma.

This projector's resolution (3840 x 2160) is in fact the best supported resolution across all similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the DLA-X55R.

A 640 x 400 graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution across comparable types of projector.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The JVC DLA-X55R supports 3D image projection, unlike most of the other projectors that were launched more than two years ago which do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection including a higher scoring multimedia projector such as the JVC DLA-X35.

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type the DLA-X55R supports Full HD projection.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors that came out more than two years ago, the DLA-X55R does not have a built-in speaker.

Different multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker that you might want to also look at include the Epson EH-TW5910 (£899).

Dim Projector Brightness

Projectors that have been around for around the same time as the DLA-X55R have projector brightnesses of between 20 ANSI lumens and 4,300 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 2,200 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 1,200 ANSI lumen, the JVC DLA-X55R has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the DLA-X55R.

If this JVC data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the PTAE7000U (2000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the PT-AE8000U (2400 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Panasonic.

Very High Running Costs

The DLA-X55R is one of the least economic to run data projectors of this spec and age that we have assessed for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the DLA-X55R is £130.

2.0:1 Zoom Ratio

This projector supports a 2.0:1 zoom ratio, which is typical of many multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years.

It is worth considering alternative 23dB noise level multimedia projectors including a higher scoring multimedia projector such as the JVC DLA-X35.
