11 Reasons For

Viewsonic Has Excellent Reviews for Its Projectors

We calculated the average reviews for all Viewsonic data projectors and also specifically for Viewsonic 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Viewsonic had excellent reviews.

Good Picture Quality

Some Viewsonic PJD5234 reviewers who reviewed the product agreed that it had good picture quality.

Good Product Quality

Several people who purchased it wrote that it was good quality. Four years ago expert review site Pcmag.com mentioned “The ViewSonic PJD5234%displayPrice% at %seller% provides a very good range of connectivity choices and decent image quality for a budget data projector”. Pcmag.com also said “Though other projectors offer better image quality and higher brightnes”. Pcmag.com also wrote “The ViewSonic PJD5234 provides solid data image quality and a good range of connectivity choices for an XGA data projector”.

Good Connectivity

A few Viewsonic PJD5234 reviewers who reviewed the Viewsonic PJD5234 agreed that it was good in terms of connectivity. Expert website Itreviews.com said “The ViewSonic PJD5234 provides a very good range of connectivity choices and decent image quality for a budget data projector” however despite that they gave the Viewsonic PJD5234 a rating of 3 stars.

Reasonably Priced

One Viewsonic PJD5234 reviewer considered that the Viewsonic PJD5234 was a bargain for the price. Dominic Mullaghan gave the product a rating of 5 stars and he said in his Viewsonic PJD5234 review on Amazon three years ago “Allows you to adjust as necessary, cheap way of getting a massive tv, also bought with 120 inch projector screen”.

Good Size

One Viewsonic PJD5234 reviewer mentioned in their reviews that the product was lightweight. Pcmag.com wrote on PC Mag “It's lightweight and portable” in their review of the Viewsonic PJD5234 and scored the Viewsonic PJD5234 4 stars.

Robust

One Viewsonic PJD5234 owner who purchased the product considered that it was well made.

Supports 3D

The Viewsonic PJD5234 supports 3D, as do most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PJD5234.

We compared all the other projectors which support 3D to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Pro Z11000WNL[pl_3018741_price], and the Pro Z11005NL[pl_3018740_price] both from Epson or the Optoma W306[plb_1726310_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PJD5234 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of this age and type also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Vivitek D556[plb_2998065_price], the Infocus IN112A[plb_2178166_price], and the Viewsonic PJD7333[plb_1875423_price] is also worth considering.

Two Number of Built-In Speakerss

The Viewsonic PJD5234 is a two number of built-in speakers data projector.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Across all the multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the weights range from 1.3kg to 27kg, and the average weight is 6.5kg. At only 2.1 kilograms, the PJD5234 is quite light compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

5 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Average

This data projector has an average expert rating of 65% based on two expert reviews from sites including PC Mag and IT Reviews.com.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Viewsonic PJD5234 does not support full HD. Most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years also do not support full HD.

There are a number of other data projectors which also support full HD which you might want to consider 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 PJD5234 does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of this age and type also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support wi-Fi to this multimedia projector and we think the EB Z9870U[pl_3022342_price], or the EB-Z11000[pl_2549617_price] both from Epson or the Optoma EX400[plb_2110318_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PJD5234 the projector brightnesss range from 700 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,200 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 2,800 ANSI lumens, the PJD5234 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PJD5234.

If you want a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the PJD6383S[pl_1514462_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the PJD6683WS[pl_1514463_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) both from Viewsonic or the Infocus IN112A[plb_2178166_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
