Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Vivitek D557W has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the D557W also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Infocus IN116A[plb_2100766_price] which has better reviews.

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The Vivitek D557W has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. The best resolution of all similar spec data projectors that were launched more than two years ago is WUXGA (1920x1200) and the worst is SVGA (800x600).

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

With a service life of lamp of 5,000 hours, the Vivitek D557W has a quite long service life of lamp compared to most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the D557W. The average service life of lamp of projectors of a similar age and spec to the D557W is 4,700h, and the service life of lamps range from 2,000h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption (PowerSave)

The average power consumption (PowerSave) of projectors of a comparable age and spec to the D557W is 220W. The Vivitek D557W has one of the lower power consumption (PowerSave)s (only 200 Watts) amongst projectors of this age.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Vivitek D557W does not support full HD. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the D557W also do not support full HD.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider include the PJD7820HD[pl_1536139_price], the PRO8600[pl_1596542_price], or the PJD8633[pl_1597774_price] all from Viewsonic.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years do not support wi-Fi. The Vivitek D557W is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Optoma EX400[plb_2110318_price], or the Epson EB-Z11000[plb_2549617_price].
