The Vivitek H5080 offers a ton of quality and performance for the price and would make a fine addition as the centerpiece in any home theater, game room or man cave. Its performance matches its stylish looks and it has enough inputs to make even the...

This review has been a long time in coming. I've been receiving requests to review this projector, since about the time we published the Optoma HD8600. These two projectors are very similar, as they are coming off the same assembly lines. They are...

Vivitek H5080 review

 

Vivitek fills the gap between its appealing budget and high-end projector ranges

Tidily designed ; Three HDMi inputs ; Excellent contrast and colour performance

Runs slightly loud ; A little video noise during dark scenes

The most all-round Vivitek projector yet.

Vivitek H5080 review

 

Vivitek's H5080 is the biggest DLP projector we've ever reviewed. Unlike most large projectors it's glossy, curved and quite attractive. We were even more surprised to find a set of lens shift controls hidden beneath a flap at the top of the projector...

The most all-round Vivitek projector yet.
