8 Reasons For

Viewsonic Multimedia Projectors Have Excellent Reviews

Viewsonic has excellent average ratings for its 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire data projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Good High Def TV

One Viewsonic PJD8653WS reviewer considered that it was good at displaying high definition TV. Digitalversus.com wrote in their review of the Viewsonic PJD8653WS on Digital Versus “The ViewSonic PJD8653ws is a HD projector (1280 x 800 pixels) with an ultra-short throw distance”.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The PJD8653WS has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the PJD8653WS also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the EH415[pl_2227615_price], and the X307[pl_1727619_price] both from Optoma or the Viewsonic PJD8633[plb_1597774_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the PJD8653WS is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution. Projectors of this age and spec native projector resolutions range from SVGA (800x600) to WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The Viewsonic PJD8653WS has more built-in speakers than most of the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PJD8653WS. Most of the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PJD8653WS only have one built-in speaker, however this Viewsonic projector has two built-in speakers.

Chart Edit

Two Audio in Ports

Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PJD8653WS only have one audio in port, however the PJD8653WS has two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

The average RMS rated power of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the PJD8653WS is 6.8W. At 16 Watts, the PJD8653WS has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The average service life of lamp in economic mode of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the PJD8653WS is 6,000h, and the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 3,000h to 20,000h. At 7,000 hours, the PJD8653WS has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

11 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

On average, based on two expert reviews from sites including Digital Versus and Les Numeriques.com this projector has an overall expert rating of 60%. This means that data projector experts really don't rate this Viewsonic multimedia projector very highly.

Difficult to Use

One Viewsonic PJD8653WS owner who purchased it thought it was not easy to use. Digitalversus.com mentioned on expert review site Digital Versus “It can display a two-metre-wide image at just 63 cm from the wall or screen, making it an interesting option for rooms where there's not enough space to use a s”.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Viewsonic PJD8653WS does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PJD8653WS do support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the EH415[pl_2227615_price], or the X307[pl_1727619_price] both from Optoma or the Viewsonic PJD7533[plb_1549422_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years, the PJD8653WS does not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the EH415[pl_2227615_price], or the EH300[pl_1727047_price] both from Optoma or the Viewsonic PJD8633[plb_1597774_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the PJD8653WS do not support WiFi connectivity. The PJD8653WS is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The PJD8653WS has a quite dim projector brightness (only 2,600 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age. Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PJD8653WS the projector brightness range from 700 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,200 ANSI lumens.

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the X307[pl_1727619_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens), or the W307[pl_1727438_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens) both from Optoma or the Viewsonic PJD8633[plb_1597774_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
