ViewSonic PJD5533w

 

The ViewSonic PJD5533w provides a good balance between price, portability, brightness, connectivity, and image quality.

Low price. Decent data image quality. Compact and lightweight. Good lamp life. 3D ready. 3-year warranty.

Soft audio. No carrying case. Rainbow effect in video.

ViewSonic PJD6683ws

 

The ViewSonic PJD6683ws is a close cousin to the ViewSonic PJD6553w that I recently reviewed. In particular, both are built around a DLP chip with a WXGA (1280 by 800) resolution. Where the two differ, in part, is that the PJD6683ws offers a slightly...

Bright, with a 3000 lumen rating. High quality data image. Short throw. Light enough for portable use. Long lamp life

Relatively low-quality video. Rainbow artifacts show relatively often, particularly with video

The ViewSonic PJD6683ws delivers a bright, high quality data image, a native 1280 by 800 resolution, and a short throw that lets you show big images from close to the screen.

Buy with confidence. It's a great product for the price. We've really bought the right projector for our home cinema. My partner still sits with a great grin on his face when he watches the films we project!

Ummmm... nope, can't think of any.
