6 Reasons For

Vivitek Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Vivitek is one of the better rated data projector manufacturers according to average user and expert review score data that we have collected for all data projectors.

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the D8300 which do not support full HD, the Vivitek D8300 supports full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which support full HD to this projector and we think the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], and the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Very Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years the projector brightnesss range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,500 ANSI lumens. At 6,500 ANSI lumens, the Vivitek D8300 has a very bright projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

The Vivitek D8300 has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most common resolution. The resolution of all projectors of this age and type ranges from SVGA (800x600) to WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Very Big Bulb Power

Across all the similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the D8300 the bulb powers range from 140W to 400W, and the average bulb power is 240W. When compared to other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the D8300 that we have checked, the Vivitek D8300's bulb power of 400 Watts is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

The Vivitek D8300 has more HDMI ports quantitys than most of the projectors that were launched more than two years ago. This data projector is a two HDMI ports quantity data projector compared to most of the comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago which only have one HDMI ports quantity.

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Vivitek D8300 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the D8300 which have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to consider including the Epson V11H475020[plb_2123586_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D

The Vivitek D8300 does not support 3D. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the D8300 also do not support 3D.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D to this data projector and we think the NEC NP-M311W[plb_1525270_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the D8300, the Vivitek D8300 does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi to this data projector and we think the Epson BrightLink 436Wi[plb_1875520_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp

When compared to other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the D8300, the Vivitek D8300's service life of lamp of only 1,500 hour is one of the shortest. The service life of lamps of multimedia projectors of this age and spec range from 1,500h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 4,400h.

Chart Edit

High Running Costs

The D8300 has an average 1 year running cost of £171 based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the more expensive to run projectors of a comparable spec and age.

Chart Edit

Only One Component Video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in

Very Loud Noise Level

When compared to other projectors that were released around the same time as the D8300, the noise level of the Vivitek D8300 of 45 decibels is one of the loudest. Projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the D8300 have noise levels of between 26dB and 45dB, and the average noise level is 35dB.

If you are not worried about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the CP-WX8265[pl_1900979_price] (39dB), or the CP-X8170[pl_1900980_price] (39dB) both from Hitachi.
