Vivitek H5080 DLP Home Theater Projector Review

7 September 2011
  • Conclusion: Vivitek's H5080 is an intriguing machine. On the one hand, Vivitek is clearly trying to strengthen its position in the home theater marketplace, and the H5080's heft and attractive looks certainly give it a dose of high-end panache.
  • Pros: No 3D (yeah, I said it), Plenty bright, Vibrant, punchy colors, Deep blacks, good shadow detail, Available fixed short throw and long throw lenses
