Vivitek D537W DLP Projector Review
Not a top choice for home theater connoisseurs, but it gets the job done.
The Vivitek D537W produced an average 46 decibels when operating in the brightest mode, or 41 decibels when in eco mode. This is about average for similarly sized and priced projectors.
All projectors kick out a lot of heat if you stand too close to them. The temperature of the exhaust fan is a whopping 69 degrees (F) warmer than the ambient air. That can get uncomfortable, so plan on mounting the projector on the ceiling, or give a wide berth around the exhaust port.
The Vivitek D537W consumes about the same amount of power as similar projectors. The wattage varies pretty widely depending on the mode you've chosen. Obviously, something like Eco mode is going to use less power. The table below has all the details from four different modes.
Vivitek claims that the 5811116310-SU lamp has a reported life of 3000 / 4000 hours, based on Normal / Eco modes. We don't have the time to test all 3000-4000 hours of that claim, so we have to take them at their word, to some degree. They're probably exaggerating, but hopefully not by too much.
