10 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

On average, based on two expert reviews from sites including Digital Versus and Les Numeriques.com this Viewsonic projector has an overall expert rating of 60 out of 100. Data projector experts don't rate this data projector very highly.

Difficult to Use

One Viewsonic PJD8653WS owner who purchased it thought it was not easy to use. Digitalversus.com mentioned on expert review site Digital Versus “It can display a two-metre-wide image at just 63 cm from the wall or screen, making it an interesting option for rooms where there's not enough space to use a s”.

Does Not Support 3D

The PJD8653WS does not support 3D, unlike most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the PJD8653WS which support 3D.

Other projectors which also support 3D that you might want to consider include the X307[pl_1727619_price], or the EH415[pl_2227615_price] both from Optoma or the Viewsonic PJD7533[plb_1549422_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other projectors of this age and spec, the PJD8653WS does not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the EH415[pl_2227615_price], or the EH300[pl_1727047_price] both from Optoma which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Data projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the X307[pl_1727619_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens), or the EH300[pl_1727047_price] (3,800 ANSI lumens) both from Optoma or the Viewsonic PJD7533[plb_1549422_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
