12 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

The DH558 is in the cheapest 14% of all 29 projectors of this type and age that we have assessed for 1 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the DH558 is only £81.

Vivitek Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Multimedia projectors produced by Vivitek have an average rating of 79 out of 100, which is in the top 53% of all projector brands that we have looked at.

Supports 3D

The Vivitek DH558 supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the DH558 do not support 3D.

There are a number of other projectors which support 3D currently available which you might also want to consider including cheaper projectors such as the Vivitek DW814[plb_3383743_price].

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this data projector and we think the Vivitek DX813[plb_3704518_price] is also worth considering.

Supports Full HD

The Vivitek DH558 supports full HD. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for more than a year do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support full HD currently available including cheaper data projectors such as the Epson EB-U04[plb_3024676_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Vivitek DH558 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than a year.

There are a number of alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might also want to consider including cheaper data projectors such as the Epson EB-W31[plb_3193910_price], or the Vivitek DW814[plb_3383743_price].

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Vivitek DX881ST[plb_3219949_price].

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

This data projector has a projector native resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is the most commonly found projector native resolution on 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than a year.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Vivitek DH558 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over four times the resolution of a 800 x 600 (SVGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors of this age and type. In addition, this multimedia projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080).

This projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution across all projectors of a comparable type and age to the DH558.

Across comparable types of projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Quite Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 33 decibels, the Vivitek DH558 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type. Data projectors that were released one year ago have noise levels of between 29dB and 39dB.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Vivitek DW814[plb_3383743_price] (36dB and cheaper), or the Epson EX7240[plb_3184313_price] (34dB and cheaper).

Fairly Big Offset

Projectors of this age and type have offsets of between 8% and 130%, and the average offset is 78%. The Vivitek DH558 has a quite big offset (115 percent) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the DH558.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on projectors of a comparable spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption (economy Mode)

With a power consumption (economy mode) of only 200 Watts, the Vivitek DH558's power consumption (economy mode) is one of the lowest amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the DH558. Projectors of this age and spec have power consumption (economy mode)s of between 200W and 330W.

Light

Across all the multimedia projectors of this age and type the weights range from 2.3g to 4.6kg. At only 2.3 kilograms, the Vivitek DH558 is fairly light compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Vivitek DH558 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the DH558 also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this data projector and we think the EB-W31[pl_3193910_price], or the EB-U04[pl_3024676_price] both from Epson which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the DH558 the projector brightnesss range from 2,000 ANSI lumens to 5,000 ANSI lumens. The Vivitek DH558 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss (only 3,000 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

We compared this projector to all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think the Epson VS345[plb_3043985_price] which has better reviews; or the Epson EB-U04[plb_3024676_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth considering include the DX813[pl_3704518_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens), or the DW882ST[pl_3704440_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens) both from Vivitek.
