Running Costs Are Low

The average running cost of the PJD5226 is only £94 over 1 year based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is in the cheapest 16% of all 46 projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Viewsonic Multimedia Projectors Have OK Reviews

Data projectors manufactured by Viewsonic generally have ok ratings compared to other brands.

Over Two Years Old

This projector has been on the market for over two years.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other projectors of this age and spec the Viewsonic PJD5226 has a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Epson EH-TW5910 (£899), the iPowerUp SGT1001W, and the Optoma ZX210ST (£499) which have a better Kagoo Rating™ are also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the PJD5226, including the Viewsonic PJD5226, do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Vivitek D516, the Epson EH-TW9000 (£2,650), or the Mitsubishi Electric HC9000D are also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the projectors that have been on the market for more than two years, including the Viewsonic PJD5226, do not support 3D image projection.

It is worth considering different multimedia projectors with a 3D image projection including the Epson EH-TW9100 (£2,599), the Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW, or the Benq MX514P.

Only XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Viewsonic PJD5226 is XGA (1024x768). That's 62% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) to this data projector and we think a higher scoring projector such as the ZX212ST, and the ZX210ST (£499) both from Optoma or the Vivitek D517 are also worth considering.

If the resolution of this projector is not high enough for you then you might want to also look at the SA560 (£780.02) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the SA565 (£1,099.99) (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated) both from LG or the Optoma ZW212ST (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated).

This data projector's resolution (XGA (1024x768)) is actually the worst resolution across all projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PJD5226.

A 1080p (1920x1080) native projector resolution is the best resolution across comparable types of data projector.

Average Projector Brightness

The PJD5226 has a relatively average projector brightness (2,700 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the PJD5226.

It is worth also looking at different 2700 ANSI lumens brightness projectors including the Benq MX514P, or the Infocus SP8600HD3D which have a better Kagoo Rating™.

If this Viewsonic projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the D516 (3000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the D517 (3000 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Vivitek or the Panasonic PT-LZ370U (3000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Average Noise Level

At 32 decibels, the Viewsonic PJD5226 has a relatively typical noise level compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PJD5226.

We compared this projector to all the other 32dB noise level data projectors and we think a higher scoring product such as the Benq W7000+, and the Viewsonic PJD6353s are also worth considering.

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The PJD5226 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the PJD5226. This multimedia projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port projector compared to most of the projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PJD5226 which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.
