6 Reasons For

Vivitek Has Good Projector Reviews

Vivitek is one of the better rated projector brands according to average reviews from experts and owners, and Vivitek also has good reviews for its data projectors.

Supports Full HD

The Vivitek D517 supports full HD, unlike most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the D517 which do not support full HD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative data projectors which support full HD currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], or the Panasonic PTAE7000U[plb_1897671_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Vivitek D517 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the D517 also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the Acer H7531D[plb_1418806_price].

Quite Big Offset

With an offset of 128 percent, the Vivitek D517 has one of the bigger offsets amongst data projectors of this age. The offsets of comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the D517 range from 0.03% to 140%, and the average offset is 100%.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Very Light

With a weight of only 1.9 kilograms, the Vivitek D517 is quite light compared to most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the D517. The weights of data projectors that are a similar age to the D517 range from 2.2g to 26kg, and the average weight is 5kg.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The Vivitek D517 does not support 3D. Most of the other projectors that came out more than two years ago do support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support 3D including the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], or the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub[plb_2301495_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most projectors of this spec and age do not support wi-Fi. The Vivitek D517 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Only XGA (1024x768) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Vivitek D517 is XGA (1024x768). That's 62% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago the resolution ranges from SVGA (800x600) to 1080p (1920x1080).

Chart Edit

Very Small Bulb Power

The smallest bulb power of data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the D517 is 140W and the biggest is 580W. The Vivitek D517 has a quite small bulb power (only 190 Watts) compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

At only 2 Watts, the Vivitek D517 has a quite low RMS rated power compared to most of the other data projectors that were launched around the same time as the D517. The average RMS rated power of data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the D517 is 9W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Display Diagonal

Multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the D517 have display diagonals of between 0.55" and 30". With a display diagonal of only 0.55 inches, the Vivitek D517 has one of the smaller display diagonals amongst projectors of this age.

4 Other reasons to consider the Vivitek D517

Average Running Costs

The D517 is typical compared to the other 123 projectors of this age and spec that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the D517 is £91.

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when this multimedia projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Vivitek D517 has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson EB-1771[plb_1748930_price], and the Optoma X305[plb_1726305_price] is also worth considering.

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the VPL-SW630[pl_2442309_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens), or the VPL-SW536C[pl_2528699_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens) both from Sony.

Average Noise Level

At 33 decibels, the Vivitek D517 has a relatively standard noise level compared to most of the other projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 33dB noise level projectors currently available including the Benq LX60ST[plb_1451093_price] which has better reviews.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the Optoma W304M[plb_1724146_price] (33dB).
