Viviitek H1185HD ISFccc version of the H1180HD

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
A second version of the H1180HD will come out this fall from Vivitek. The H1185HD will offer more lumens (2500 instead of 2000) and also an ISFccc certification.

I'd like to see the comparison to the Infocus IN8606HD, its obviously the same base unit, same headline specs including weight and massive zoom. But I notice Infocus are claiming 1000 extra hours.

Edit - looks like the noise levels are different also.

Vivitek H1180HD - 2000 lumen 29db eco 33db std, life 6000 eco or 4500 std
Vivitek H1185HD - 2500 lumen 32db eco 35 db std, life 5000 eco or 5000 std
Infocus IN8606HD - 2500 lumens 29db eco 33 db std, life 6000 eco or 4500 std

Vivitek offering extra year warranty though, interesting. I must say that I tried the IN8606HD on std and the noise was real bad, made for deaf people imho, mine is staying on eco.

Looked in my Infocus IN8606HD box for evidence, not much in there but the label on the HDMI cable supplies further confirmation if needed of a common manufacturer, its labelled as a "Qumi" cable (as in Vivitek LED projector Qumi).

 

Looked again at the french site you linked to the onscreen menus of the 1180 unit are exactly like mine

They are subtly different models of the same unit, co-manufactured.

Very happy personally, with the IN8606HD, as a previous owner of an Optoma H27 and Infocus X10. Guess we need to await a professional review. As ever you need to tweak the brightness, contrast and saturation to suit your taste, initally I hiked up the brightness too much and then yes the blacks were poor then.

 

I have a Panasonic LCD TV next to it and if I have them both on, yes the blacks are deeper on the TV, thats only what you expect though, but there is a world of difference though versus the old X10, I really avoided ever comparing the TV and projector picture as the X10 was so dim in comparison it was unbearable - it really shows how far budget projectors have come in the last couple of years.

 

Its not like I had an extensive choiceanyway, I needed a unit to fit existing mounting and screen, a throw ratio of 2.07.

Hmm...VIVITEK H1185HD has hdmi 1.4b support by the spec.

Can it run 1080p60 per Eye (120 Hz total)?
