Excerpt: In my ongoing quest for low-cost projectors that perform well, I came across the H1085 from Vivitek. Unlike most such projectors, this one is available only through custom installers. How does it perform? Let's find out.
Summary: If you only cough up £990 for a projector, you'll clearly have to accept a compromise or two. But the Vivitek H1085 will force fewer compromises on you than you might expect, making it a surprisingly enjoyable option for casual users on a budget
Pros: Much better picture quality than usual at this price level, Easy to use, Decent connectivity
Cons: Noticeable rainbow effect, Some judder, It runs rather noisily if you leave the lamp set to its maximum output, Traces of crawling noise over dark scenes
