Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The service life of lamp (economic mode) of the Vivitek D556 of 10,000 hours is one of the longest amongst data projectors that were released more than two years ago. Projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the D556 have service life of lamp (economic mode)s of between 3,000h and 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 5,900h.

Very Low Power Consumption (economy Mode)

Multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the D556 have power consumption (economy mode)s of between 200W and 830W, and the average power consumption (economy mode) is 620W.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The Vivitek D556 does not support 3D, unlike most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the D556 which support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The Vivitek D556 does not support full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the D556 also do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support full HD including the PJD7820HD[pl_1536139_price], the PRO8600[pl_1596542_price], or the PJD8633[pl_1597774_price] all from Viewsonic which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Vivitek D556 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the D556 also do not support wi-Fi.

Other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might also want to look at include the Optoma EX400[plb_2110318_price], or the Epson EB-Z11000[plb_2549617_price].

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Vivitek D556 is SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than the most common projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is in fact the worst resolution across all 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the D556.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is the best resolution amongst comparable types of projector.

Very Small Bulb Power

With a bulb power of only 190 Watts, the Vivitek D556 has a quite small bulb power compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years. The bulb powers of projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the D556 range from 190W to 2,400W, and the average bulb power is 290W.

Chart Edit

Quite Low RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of only 2 Watts, the Vivitek D556 has one of the lowest RMS rated powers amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Across all the projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the D556 the RMS rated powers range from 2W to 30W.

4 Other reasons to consider the Vivitek D556

Running Costs Are OK

The average 1 year running cost of the D556 is £81 based on average usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 59 multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

Released Over Three Years Ago

Vivitek released the D556 over three years ago.

Average Noise Level

At 35 decibels, the Vivitek D556 has a pretty typical noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the D556.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth looking at include the Vivitek D555[plb_2500114_price] (35dB).

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Vivitek D556 has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Infocus IN112A[plb_2178166_price], and the Viewsonic PJD6543W[plb_1530990_price] is also worth considering.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the Epson EB-Z9870[plb_3060383_price] (8,700 ANSI lumens).
