5 Reasons For

Vivitek Projectors Have Good Reviews

Data projectors manufactured by Vivitek have an average rating of 79%, which is in the top 53% of all multimedia projector manufacturers that we have analysed.

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago which do not support full HD, the Vivitek D552 supports full HD.

There are a number of alternative projectors which support full HD currently available that you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the PJD7820HD[pl_1536139_price], the PRO8600[pl_1596542_price], or the PJD8633[pl_1597774_price] all from Viewsonic.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Vivitek D552 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the D552.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Offset

With an offset of 128 percent, the Vivitek D552 has a fairly big offset compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age. Projectors of this type and age have offsets of between 13% and 130%.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp

The Vivitek D552 has one of the longer service life of lamps (5,000 hours) amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The shortest service life of lamp of comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the D552 is 2,000h and the longest is 30,000h.

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the D552 support 3D, however the Vivitek D552 does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the D552, the Vivitek D552 does not support wi-Fi.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support wi-Fi including the EB-Z11000[pl_2549617_price], or the EB-Z11005[pl_2549634_price] both from Epson or the Optoma EX400[plb_2110318_price].

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Vivitek D552 is SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most common resolution.

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is in fact the worst resolution across all similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the D552.

Across similar types of multimedia projector the best resolution is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The Vivitek D552 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss (only 3,000 ANSI lumens) amongst projectors of this age. 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the D552 have projector brightnesss of between 700 ANSI lumens and 11,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,200 ANSI lumens.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this data projector and we think the PJD8633[pl_1597774_price], and the PJD6383S[pl_1514462_price] both from Viewsonic or the Infocus IN112A[plb_2178166_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the EW400[pl_2272302_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the EH415[pl_2227615_price] (4,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Optoma.

Quite Loud Noise Level

At 35 decibels, the Vivitek D552 has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the D552. The average noise level of multimedia projectors of this type and age is 33dB, and the noise levels range from 26dB to 40dB.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 35dB noise level projectors and we think the Viewsonic PJD7820HD[plb_1536139_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Very Small Bulb Power

The average bulb power of data projectors of this age and spec is 290W, and the bulb powers range from 190W to 2,400W. At only 190 Watts, the Vivitek D552 has a fairly small bulb power compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the D552.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of only 2 Watts, the Vivitek D552 has a quite low RMS rated power compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the D552. The average RMS rated power of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago is 6.7W.
