Vivitek D538W-3D review

 

Finding a home cinema projector that supports 3D video can be incredibly difficult if you're on a budget, but Vivitek's H538W-3D is surprisingly well priced at £650. If this sounds a little too good to be true, you won't be surprised that some...

Works great for smaller rooms, but the H538W-3D lacks the features and image quality to take a place in your main home cinema setup

Vivitek D538W-3D

 

The Vivitek D538W-3D projector rather startlingly delivers 3D playback - with no extra box necessary - for under £700.

Very cheap for a one-box 3D projector, Compact design, 3D picture quality better than expected

Blu-ray 3D pictures lose resolution, Poor black level response, Runs a bit noisily
