Summary: Personal Experience True 1080p native resolution under $1000. I paid $899 at best buy. Has 2 HDMI inputs, and a huge variety of inputs/outputs. It also has audio out, which was important to me. In this price range, DLP is far superior to LCD projectors. I originally purchased a $1699 Epson 3LCD projector, and this Vivitek has a much better, crisper, brighter, more vivid picture.
Summary: Having had no previous experience of projectors my point of view is limited, however I do know a good picture when I SEE IT. Its bright, enough to paint a grey screen which helps the blacks deepen a little. It is generally better than I expected in all areas. Setup is easy and intuitive as well as having personal preferences for individual users.
Summary: Personal Experience the projector is awesome. beautiful picture amazing all around. its a purchase i made that i feel great about. Problems the manual is extrememly vague, no set up chart as far as measurements.
Summary: I am very happy with my purchase. I work in the AV industry, so I play with many much more expensive and much higher quality projectors. For the price this one is a great buy. Very sharp and bright I do not even use it on the brightest setting. Blacks are good. The fan is noticeable if you are right next to it or under it.(Reason for my 4 stars) Mine is ceiling mounted and my favorite seat is right under it. Its Not enough to gripe about.
Summary: I bought this item instead of television and i was a bit worried about it is good enough. it is awesome item and use it everyday. and most of my friends jelous about my little projector. i love it thanks a lot I bought this item instead of television and i was a bit worried about it is good enough. it is awesome item and use it everyday. and most of my friends jelous about my little projector.
Summary: I bought a few of these projectors to replace 5 year old LCD 720p models. I needed bright projectors since they would be used in an office space and needed to be visible with high ambient light (the old ones were 2500 lumen). The specs on these seemed perfect for my needs and the next closest options were 3-4 times as expensive. Well unfortunately I guess you get what you pay for.
Vivitek D950HD 3000 Lumen 1080p Office and Home Theater Projector
4 December 2012
Summary: I must admit, the quality of the product is superb, no wonder so many European people purchased it, me being one. After two months research I decided to purchase this Vivitek projector. I am pretty happy with this product, the only issue I have is the remote control, it runs the batteries within an hour and it gets pretty hot in the opposite side of where the remote control keys are. I have to either exchange it or create my own remote control...
Summary: I purchased this for use at a company I was working for (they paid for it of course) to use in a conference room. Absolutely great picture quality, 1080p resolution is very useful and helps future-proof the projector. Came with all the ports we needed, and was incredibly bright! I was expecting to have to dim the lights and close some windows (very well lit room), but the projector put off enough light that all this was just optional in the end.
Pros: I really love this projector. I was hesitant about DLP projectors and color wash, but that isn't a problem at all. And 3000 Lumens is fantastically bright and looks very pretty, even in a 2nd Floor Apartment with the sun shining in the windows in the middle of the day.
Cons: The only con that I can find is the Remote IR codes. NO ONE has remote IR codes that actually work on my TiVo remote or my PIONEER A/V Receiver remote.
