Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Vivitek DU978-WT has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than a year ago also have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to look at including the Benq W2000w (£1,355.09), or the Vivitek DH833 (£1,260) both of which are cheaper.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Optoma EH504 (£1,454.92) is also worth considering.

Very High Running Costs

The average running cost of the DU978-WT is £123 over 1 year based on average energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the most expensive to run data projectors of this age and spec.


Projector

WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution

The DU978-WT has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's 11% more resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) projector, which is the most common resolution.

This projector's resolution (WUXGA (1920x1200)) is actually the best resolution amongst all projectors of this age and type.

Amongst comparable types of projector the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600).
