Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Vivitek DX977 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other latest projectors also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Vivitek H1060 (£899), and the Infocus IN2128HDX (£868.07) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Epson 975W.

Very Bright Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of similar spec data projectors that were launched in the last year is 4,400 ANSI lumens.

Only XGA (1024x768) Resolution

The Vivitek DX977 has a maximum resolution of XGA (1024x768). That's 66% less resolution than the most common projector native resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200).

This data projector's resolution (XGA (1024x768)) is in fact the worst resolution across all projectors that have been available for around the same time as this multimedia projector.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is the best resolution amongst similar types of data projector.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Vivitek DX977 does not support full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors that came out in the last 12 months also do not support full HD.

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors which also support full HD including the Vivitek H1060 (£899), or the Infocus IN2128HDX (£868.07) which is also cheaper.
