We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the IN116A[pl_2100766_price], and the IN124[pl_2194103_price] both from Infocus or the Viewsonic PJD5132[plb_1527047_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the IN124[pl_2194103_price], or the IN116A[pl_2100766_price] both from Infocus or the Viewsonic PJD5483S[plb_1610144_price].

Average Expert Reviews

Inferior Sound Quality

One customer concluded that it did not have good sound quality. Stuart wrote on Amazon “It's a good project with a really clear picture with just a few downsides like the internal speakers are poor” however he still gave the Viewsonic PJD5134 a rating of 80 out of 100.

The PJD5134 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PJD5134 also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering other data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Viewsonic PJD5483S[plb_1610144_price], or the Epson EH-TW5200[plb_1732117_price] which is also higher rated.
