3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The PJD5533W does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors of this spec and age also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Epson EH-TW5200[plb_1732117_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as the PJD5533W do not support WiFi connectivity. The Viewsonic PJD5533W is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Other 2,800 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available that you might also want to look at include cheaper projectors such as the Viewsonic PJD5234[plb_1481513_price].

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Viewsonic PJD6245[plb_1530989_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the Optoma X302[plb_1725842_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
