Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
Like most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out in the last 12 months, the Vivitek DX977 has a built-in speaker(s).
Alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might also want to look at include the Epson U32+[plb_3673313_price] which has better reviews.
Very Bright Projector Brightness
The projector brightness of the Vivitek DX977 of 6,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest amongst latest comparable spec projectors. The average projector brightness of comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the DX977 is 3,600 ANSI lumens.
Very Big Matrix Size
When compared to other similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the DX977, the matrix size of the Vivitek DX977 of 0.7 inches is one of the biggest. Across all the recently released projectors the matrix sizes range from 0.55" to 0.7".
Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys
The Vivitek DX977 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys than most of the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the DX977. This Vivitek projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity projector compared to most of the new 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.
5 Reasons Against
Does Not Support 3D
The Vivitek DX977 does not support 3D. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the DX977 do support 3D.
Does Not Support Full HD
The Vivitek DX977 does not support full HD. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out in the last year do support full HD.
We compared all the other data projectors which also support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson U32+[plb_3673313_price] is also worth considering.
Does Not Support Wi-Fi
The Vivitek DX977 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other new similar spec projectors also do not support wi-Fi.
Alternative multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might also want to consider include the Epson U32+[plb_3673313_price].
Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity
Most 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out in the last 12 months have between one and two USB 2.0 ports quantitys, including the Vivitek DX977 which has one USB 2.0 ports quantity.
+2 More reasons against
Comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for the last year have weights of between 2.3kg and 4.6kg. At 4 kilograms, the Vivitek DX977 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the DX977.
