Think about a case while you are watching any high-speed sports like football or so. Your favourite team is on the way to do a Goal, and a player from the defence suddenly applied a long shoot and finally made a goal! But you did not see notice how it has happened!
In such case, you need to get the things clear with the help of replays. In case you are streaming the football match online then you need to waste your time in rewinding the same. After all, nobody likes to watch in such a way! In this post, I will be sharing with you all one of my latest Vivitek H658F multifunction full HD home projector review.
My Story with H658F Multimedia Smart Projector
It recently happened with me about some days ago during the world cup 2018 matches. I had gone to a bank to do some necessary paperwork. Unluckily I have reached there during their lunch hours, and I do not want to go back hence decided to sit and wait there for the bank staffs to join back their work.
There was a big LCD screen hanged over a wall. I am watching the same to spend my time. I saw a news channel had been tuned up on the same and they were displaying some video clippings of the world cup match. Now I think it is one among the semifinals if I can remember well.
An old man was also sitting next to me and also waiting for the bank’s lunch period to be over. We have some discussions together while seated with each other and also watching the TV in between. In between watching the video clippings of the football match, he told me that sometimes it is hard for him to identify how a goal has been done.
Clarity Matters a Lot,
He said his eyes are all perfect, but it might be due to the camera that it cannot catch every single movement of the game. Further, I replied to him about the fact that it is not because of the camera used to capture the sports games. Since I know, they are using some high tech cameras to record their game footage.
I cleared him about the fact that it happens with the technology of display that we are using in-out end. I gave him an example to suppose he has a standard definition TV, but he is watching any 4k content on the same. So he will not be able to identify the details and clarity behind the actual video output and what his TV can display.
Therefore every single thing matter! He feels satisfied after listening to me, and we both shared out contact number with each other. After three days I got his call. He asked me for my help with buying a good projector for him so that he can enjoy sports matches on the same.
Finally Vivitek H658F Home Projector!
Further, I have taken two days to search for a good projector for him as per his needs and finally suggested H658F DLP LED projector. Also, I would like to share with you the fact that I was present there on the day he got his projector delivered at home. I so want to help him in general setup or so.
And yes I was in my secret mission to review the product as well! Next, I am going to share with you all the details about my personal experience while unboxing and testing the projector for some time. So let us get started!
An Outlook on the Performance of H658F Compact Projector
The projector can able to display a projection output of different sizes ranging from 60 inches to 300 inches. The Vivitek H658F projector needs a regular power supply of 100-240V AC at 50/60 Hz. The H658F portable home projector is fully compatible with all the multimedia contents that support an aspect ratio of 16:9.
The standard resolution of the projector is 1920 x 1080p, i.e. Full HD. But the hardware is capable of projecting an output display with a maximum resolution of up to 1920 x 1200p. The maximum brightness of the projector is about 3300 lumens, and it delivers the highest output display having a contrast ratio of 15000:1.
Hence you do not need to turn off the lights every time you use the projector. Nor you need to shut off the window curtains to make the environment darker and projector friendly like what we do with the old type of projectors. All thanks to the advanced projection technology used in the same.
Good Performance under Different Surrounding Lights
H658F is based on DLP projection technology. The projection devices include an internal display chip of Texas Instruments. It adds the digital optical processing technology for projection to the projector. You can also use the Vivitek H658F projector to project any 3D video clip or movies.
The projector machine can project a good quality output display. It performs well in all types of surrounding environment light. If we talk about the colour production, then H685F is based on RGBYCW six-segment colour wheel.
Hence it is having a broad colour spectrum and can deliver higher colour saturation. It can do a great job of projecting the composite colours more realistic and brighter at the same time enhances the accuracy of natural colours.

2) Less Noise
In my review test of the H658F intelligent multimedia projector, I have found that the projector is producing an average noise. I commonly get the similar experience from other different projectors. Also when I check out the company metrics regarding the noise from the projector in use, then I got two metrics regarding the same.
It is 32dB if you are using the projector in normal mode and 29dB in case you are using the projector in economic mode. All in all, H658F is not a noisy projector to disturb your normal activities.

My Final Words about H658F DLP Home Projector
The pictures look more vivid and brighter. All in all the projector increases the amount of colour saturation by improving the mid-tones. Distinction and transition on high-resolution videos are natural. The laying of each colour can be displayed very clearly in the picture.
Other than LCD screens the dynamic performance of H658F smart portable projector is different. Mainly it can perform very well to display every detail in high-speed sports. Without any adjustments, the projector can show both the white and black colours very well.
And of course, the small size of the H658F LED multimedia projector can make it pretty impressive to be used on both homes and Offices.
