Audio

Unacceptable Noise Level

One person who reviewed the product thought it was noisy. K J H Farrelly mentioned “Picture quality is excellent and it is fan noise is far lower than our old projector”.


Projector

Only SVGA (800x600) Resolution

The Viewsonic PJD5134 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than a XGA (1024x768) data projector, which is the most common resolution.

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is in fact the worst resolution amongst all data projectors of a similar spec and age to this data projector.

The best resolution across comparable types of projector is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of projectors of this age and spec is 700 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 11,000 ANSI lumens. At only 2,800 ANSI lumens, the Viewsonic PJD5134 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this data projector.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2,800 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the PJD5132 (£241.40), or the PJD5232 (£308.66) both from Viewsonic which has better reviews.

If this 15000:1 contrast ratio projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the Optoma S302 (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the Vivitek D552 (£325.00) (3,000 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
