Vivitek H1080FD DLP Projector Review


All in all, the very affordable Vivitek H1080FD DLP Projector is a great value for a 1080p projector, but it gets beaten in some key categories compared to similar units. The menu system is a real drag when adjusting the image, and the color...

Most affordable 1080p projector on our list; quality picture.

Color artifacts due to DLP technology; menu can be awkward when adjusting the image.

The price is right, but there are a few glaring problems to be aware of.

Vivitek H1080FD


Your friend has a really nice home theater. That friend is really into it - a serious enthusiast. A friend that can't understand why you are watching a 42 inch LCDTV

Brightest of the low cost 1080p projectors - great for family rooms, bonus rooms, where some light is present ; Good color, very satisfactory for most folks (though definitely not a purist's projector) ; Built in speaker - ideal for quick setup or...

Black level performance is very basic more typical of 720p projectors than the bulk of 1080p models. Still, its fine for those using in rooms that always have some light ; Limited placement flexibility, and no lens shift (typical DLP projector) ; Fan...

Ok, we're just about done. All that's left is this breakout of strengths and weaknesses

Vivitek H1080FD Review


The H1080FD is home theater at a great value.

Vivitek's H1080FD is among the first 1080p projectors to launch at a retail price of $999. People still are not quite sure what to expect from projectors in this range. You might notice that all of the H1080FD's advantages have to do with image...

Vivitek H1080FD DLP Projector


The Vivitek H1080FD is a startlingly cheap DLP projector, but can it make it onto your 'must audition' shortlist?

Vivitek (H1080) Projector

Expert review by : John Archer (

Vivitek H1080 review


First impressions of the unboxed H1080 from Vivitek are promising. Its exterior manages a combination of seriousness and glamour - with its glossy white finish - that we don't often see in the budget projector world.

Good build quality and design; decent amount of zoom; runs extremely quietly

Poor contrast performance; some rainbow effect; colour issues during dark scenes; no 3D playback

Vivitek H1080 review


Accomplished, value-busting 1080p video projector. Office projectors adept with still images and Powerpoint...

Detail, colour, small size, low price, presence of a speaker

Lacks contrast, no lens shift levers, rudimentary sound quality

The lack of manual lens shift levers might not be unusual, but it is annoying, though the H1080 isn't particularly difficult to set-up. It's worth the time spent, too, since pictures are swimming in gorgeous colouring and graced with a rare sharpness....

1080p Projector Battlemodo: Optoma HD20 Vs Vivitek H1080FD


The idea of a $US1000 1080p projector is enticing, but are the first products to reach this price, the VIvitek H1080FD and the Optoma HD20, any good? ...
