Horrible lamp life3/23/2012
I bought Vivitek D530 in October 2011, and it’s not even 6 months the lamp has gone bad. When I turned the projector on today, after a few seconds while it was warming up, I heard a little blast inside and no light thereafter. I only hear the sound of fan. Just checked the warranty, it has 3 months lamp warranty. Checked the price online for a replacement lamp, selling for $327.00. In the 5 months I must have used it for about 200 to 250 hours.
I purchased this machine to use in the classroom. It performs wonderfully for the intended purpose. It's relatively small and light. Has a reasonably powerful projection image. And it works seamlessly with both my PC and my Macbook Pro. Like all such projectors, it runs very hot and one has to be careful stowing it away after use. But I've gotten used to cooling it down and handling it carefully. I can't comment on its durability since I've only used it a dozen or so times. It does have a slightly cheap, plastic feel to it. But as long as it does the job, who cares what it feels like. I wouldn't recommend this for large rooms. My guess is its range is probably limited to 30 feet (I use it in a seminar room in which the screen is only 12 feet from the projector. Works great in that situation.) In short, I can't complain. It's a good product for occasional use in small to medium size rooms.
