Other

Released Over Three Years Ago

This multimedia projector has been on the market since November 2013.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Vivitek D557W has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of this age and type also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Vivitek D555 (£420.92) which is cheaper; or the Infocus IN124 (£446.99), and the Optoma W316ST (£421.28) both of which have better reviews are also worth considering.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years, the Vivitek D557W does not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Viewsonic PJD6683WS (£499) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

3D-Ready

The Vivitek D557W is 3D-ready, as are most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

Performance

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 35 decibels, the Vivitek D557W has a fairly standard noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to this data projector.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 35dB noise level projectors currently available including the Vivitek D555 (£420.92) which is cheaper.

Alternative multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Optoma W307 (£524.34) (35dB).

Projector

WXGA (1280x800) Resolution

The Vivitek D557W has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector projector native resolutions range from SVGA (800x600) to WUXGA (1920x1200).

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Vivitek D557W has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that are a similar age to this projector.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including the Vivitek D555 (£420.92) which is cheaper; or the PJD6683WS (£499), or the PJD6543W (£403.52) both from Viewsonic and both of which have better reviews.

If you want a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Vivitek DX881ST (£530) (3,300 ANSI lumens).
