Reviews

Vivitek Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

On average Vivitek projectors are rated 78 out of 100, which is in the top 58% of all projector brands that we have looked at. 100% of those that bought a Vivitek projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Vivitek DX831 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Benq W2000 (£779.00) which has better reviews.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Vivitek DH913 (£845.20), or the Optoma DU400 (£852.04).

Projector

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to this multimedia projector is 2,000 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 5,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens. At 4,500 ANSI lumens, the Vivitek DX831 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Vivitek DW832 (£650.00) (5,000 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.

Only XGA (1024x768) Resolution

Energy

Running Costs Are Very High

Based on typical energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the DX831 will cost £136 over 1 year to run, which makes it one of the most expensive to run 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than a year ago.


Ports & Interfaces

Does Not Have a DVI Port

The Vivitek DX831 does not have a DVI port, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age also do not have a DVI port.

Performance

Very Loud Noise Level

Projectors of this age and type have noise levels of between 29dB and 40dB. When compared to other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as this data projector that we have checked, the noise level of the Vivitek DX831 of 39 decibels is one of the loudest.

If you would consider a multimedia projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Optoma DH400 (£704.39) (37dB) which is also cheaper.

Price

Pricey

We checked 36 data projectors of a comparable type and age and they range in price from £249 to £1,479. We think that this projector looks expensive compared to other data projectors of a comparable type and age.


Other

Released Over a Year Ago

This 15000:1 contrast ratio projector has been on the market since April 2017.
