Has a Built-In Speaker
The PJD5153 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the PJD5153 also have a built-in speaker.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Viewsonic PJD5155[plb_2831032_price].
We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Optoma H182X[plb_2972176_price] is also worth considering.
1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution
The highest resolution supported by the Viewsonic PJD5153 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors of this type and age. Projectors that are a comparable age to the PJD5153 graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 4096 x 2160 (best).
Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports
Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PJD5153 only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however the PJD5153 has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.
Two Component Video in Ports
The Viewsonic PJD5153 is a two component video in port projector. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the PJD5153 only have one component video in port.
Very High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization
The PJD5153 has a quite high maximum horizontal synchronization (102 kilohertz) compared to most of the other data projectors that were released more than a year ago. Similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the PJD5153 have maximum horizontal synchronization of between 80kHz and 110kHz, and the average maximum horizontal synchronization is 97kHz.
Across all the multimedia projectors that have been available for more than a year the weights range from 270g to 33kg, and the average weight is 8.2kg. At only 2.1 kilograms, the PJD5153 is quite light compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PJD5153.
10 Reasons Against
Only 100V AC Input Voltage
This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on projectors of this spec and age.
Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
The Viewsonic PJD5153 does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the PJD5153 which support 3D image projection.
We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Viewsonic PJD5155[plb_2831032_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
The PJD5153 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago do support Full HD projection.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The PJD5153 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age also do not support WiFi connectivity.
+7 More reasons against
Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution
The PJD5153 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than the most common native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768). The worst resolution of all data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PJD5153 is nHD (640x360) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).
Quite Small Lamp Power
The PJD5153 has one of the smallest lamp power (only 190 Watts) amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. Comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the PJD5153 have lamp power of between 190W and 470W, and the average lamp power is 280W.
Very Low RMS Rated Power
Projectors of this spec and age have RMS rated power of between 1W and 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 10W. At only 2 Watts, the PJD5153 has a quite low RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors that were released one year ago.
Very Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization
With a maximum vertical synchronization of only 0.12 kilohertz, the PJD5153 has a fairly low maximum vertical synchronization compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the PJD5153. The maximum vertical synchronization of similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the PJD5153 range from 0.12kHz to 240kHz.
Only One USB 2.0 Port
Most similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PJD5153 have one USB 2.0 port, including the PJD5153 which has one USB 2.0 port.
Quite Small Matrix Size
The PJD5153 has one of the smaller matrix sizes (only 0.55 inches) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. The matrix sizes of comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PJD5153 range from 0.45" to 0.96", and the average matrix size is 0.64".
2 Other reasons to consider the Viewsonic PJD5153
Released Over Two Years Ago

Average Projector Brightness
The Viewsonic PJD5153 has a relatively typical projector brightness (3,200 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the PJD5153.
If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Viewsonic PJD5155[plb_2831032_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.
