Data projectors manufactured by Viewsonic are some of the best data projectors according to average reviews from owners and experts.

Very Low Running Costs

The average running cost of the PJD2121 is only £29 over 1 year based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the cheapest to run 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Easy to Use

Some people wrote that it was easy to setup. Projectorcentral.com wrote in their review “The Viewsonic PJD2121 portable projector produces a fantastic image, has a short throw lens and is simple to set up and use”. Projectorcentral.com also said “The Viewsonic PJD2121 produces a fantastic image, has a short throw lens and is simple to set up and use”.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The PJD2121 does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the XJ-A147 (£982.97), or the XJ-M156 (£997.97) both from Casio is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most comparable spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PJD2121 do not support full HD. The PJD2121 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

Most similar spec data projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support 3D. The PJD2121 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesss of data projectors of this age and spec range from 400 ANSI lumens to 6,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,100 ANSI lumens. The PJD2121 has a quite dim projector brightness (only 400 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 1800:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the PJD2121.

If this Viewsonic data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the Casio XJ-A242 (£1,068.99) (2,500 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
