Great usability and quality for a reasonable price

Value business projector


Reviewers say the Vivitek D511 portable digital projector delivers good image quality, but that its real advantage lies in its value. At 2,600 lumens, things aren't quite as bright as better performers, such as the InFocus IN3114 (*Est. $1,400), but...

Lightweight, good image quality, great value

Poor sound quality, small remote, so-so build quality, limited placement flexibility

Maybe a good deal at the sale price, my first projector with manual Zoom & focus. I like a bigger zoom, but will deal with it. Time will tell the story. if it will last a few years.Great picture and works great with the Sabrent TV tuner.
