It may also be worth also looking at one of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of their better review scores, the U5213 (£915.77), or the U5313 (£909.97) both from Acer or the Optoma EH500 (£924.05).

Projector

1080p (1920x1080) Resolution

The Vivitek D966HD has a maximum resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to this projector the resolution ranges from SVGA (800x600) (worst) to WUXGA (1920x1200) (best).

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the data projectors that are a comparable age to this data projector the projector brightnesses range from 300 ANSI lumens to 20,000 ANSI lumens. At 4,200 ANSI lumens, the Vivitek D966HD has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to this projector.

We compared this data projector to all the other 4,200 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors and we think because of its better review score, the Optoma DH1017 (£804) is also worth considering.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the EB-1980WU (£999.99) (4,400 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the EB-1970W (£1,037) (5,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Epson or the Panasonic PT-VX600 (5,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
