ViewSonic PJ502 review


Easy-to-use projector let down by washed-out dark colours

Excellent colour performance ; Good all-round features ; Reduced 'chicken-wire' effect

Washed-out dark colours ; Poor contrast ratio ; Only SVGA resolution

A poor contrast ratio hinders the ViewSonic, although it's a reasonably good all-rounder

ViewSonic PJ502


Usually, an 800x600 LCD projector will have a visible grid, but this one is different. By using a 0.7-inch LCD panel, ViewSonic has greatly reduced the chicken-wire effect to give a far more pleasing final image
