The PJD5134 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PJD5134 also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the PJD5234[pl_1481513_price], or the PJD7333[pl_1875423_price] both from Viewsonic or the Infocus IN116A[plb_2100766_price] which has better reviews.

Chart Edit

Two Component Video (YPbPr/YCbCr) Ins

The Viewsonic PJD5134 has more component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) ins than most of the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the PJD5134.

6 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Average

Two experts from sites including PC Mag and IT Reviews.com have rated this data projector on average 65 out of 100.

Inferior Sound Quality

One Viewsonic PJD5134 owner concluded that it did not have good sound quality. Stuart mentioned “It's a good project with a really clear picture with just a few downsides like the internal speakers are poor” .

Does Not Support Full HD

The PJD5134 does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the PJD5134 also do not support full HD.

It is worth considering alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the PJD7820HD[pl_1536139_price], the PRO8600[pl_1596542_price], or the PJD8633[pl_1597774_price] all from Viewsonic.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Viewsonic PJD5134 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago also do not support wi-Fi.

Other data projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might want to consider include the EB Z9870U[pl_3022342_price], or the EB-Z11000[pl_2549617_price] both from Epson or the Optoma EX400[plb_2110318_price] which is also higher rated.

The highest resolution of the Viewsonic PJD5134 is SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is in fact the worst resolution across all comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the PJD5134.

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

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The Viewsonic PJD5134 has a quite dim projector brightness (only 2,800 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. The average projector brightness of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the PJD5134 is 4,200 ANSI lumens.

We compared all the other 2,800 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the PJD5234[pl_1481513_price], the PJD5533W[pl_1500188_price], and the PJD5132[pl_1527047_price] all from Viewsonic is also worth considering.

If this Viewsonic projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the Viewsonic PJD6245[plb_1530989_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the Optoma X302[plb_1725842_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Infocus IN116A[plb_2100766_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
