Vivitek H1080FD Projector – We finally lay our hands on the newest version


OK the Vivitek H1080FD home theater projector finally arrived. Mike’s got it and will bring it back tomorrow all nicely measured and calibrated.  Look for a blog on Thursday, with first impressions.  I’m going to try to have the entire review done by early next week.

The H1080FD is the second of the three new $999 projectors we’re reviewing, and we expect the BenQ W1000 to arrive early next week (fingers (crossed).

Other news – the Optoma HD8600 review will go live later today.  Check out the review.  Pretty nice.  -art

    I’m looking for the Thursday blog on Friday and still nothing. There are many people looking forward to your review. Thanks.

    • Sorry about that – writing it right now. -art

    Hey Art,
    When you say “newest version” are you referring to the rumored color wheel upgrade and firmware to resolve the 1080p/24fps issue on the H1080FD?
    Thanks in advance. Your opinion matters to a lot of us.

    • It’s the latest and greatest I’m told. I’ll have to see if I can find a firmware version next time I hook it up. This probably wasn’t a brand new projector, but should have latest firmwaqre. since it wasn’t brand new, serial number won’t help. -a
