Running Costs Are Low

The D516 has an average running cost of only £100 over 1 year based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is in the cheapest 20% of all 46 projectors that are older than two years.

Over Two Years Old

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

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the D516 the Vivitek D516 has a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker which you might want to consider including a higher Kagoo Rating™ product such as the Epson EH-TW5910 (£899), the Infocus SP8600HD3D, or the Optoma ZX210ST (£499).

Supports Full HD Projection

The Vivitek D516 supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age which do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which support Full HD projection to this multimedia projector and we think a higher Kagoo Rating™ projector such as the JVC DLA-X35, and the Epson EH-TW9100 (£2,599) are also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Vivitek D516 does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the D516 also do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors with a 3D image projection including the Epson EH-TW9000 (£2,650), the Mitsubishi Electric HC9000D, or the JVC DLA-X95R.

Loud Noise Level

The quietest noise level of multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the D516 is 20dB and the loudest is 37dB. With a noise level of 33 decibels, the Vivitek D516 has one of the louder noise levels amongst projectors of this age.

Different 33dB noise level projectors which you might want to also look at include a higher Kagoo Rating™ projector such as the Optoma W304M (£621.52), or the Benq LX60ST.

Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the projectors that are more than two years old the projector brightnesses range from 20 ANSI lumens to 4,300 ANSI lumens. The Vivitek D516 has a quite bright projector brightness (3,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

We think you might also be interested in alternative 3000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors including the Viewsonic PJD8333 (£830.45) which have a better Kagoo Rating™.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to also look at the Optoma HD25e (£679) (3200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Panasonic PT-RZ470 (£3,537.60) (3500 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

The highest resolution of the Vivitek D516 is SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

We think you might also be interested in different data projectors that have a resolution of SVGA (800x600) including the Viewsonic PJD5132 (£241.40) which have a better Kagoo Rating™.

If the resolution of this multimedia projector is too low for you then you might want to also look at the AAXA Technologies P3 Pico (WSVGA (1024x576 and higher rated) and higher rated), the Panasonic PT-DZ680 (WUXGA (1920x1200 and higher rated),WSVGA (1024x576 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the Benq MX618ST (XGA (1024x768 and higher rated) and higher rated).
