Chart Edit

Has 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 a cheaper projector such as the Optoma X351[plb_2821583_price] or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the Vivitek Q7 Plus[plb_2729062_price].

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the PJD7830HDL is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. The best resolution of all data projectors that are a similar age to the PJD7830HDL is WUXGA (1920x1200) and the worst is SVGA (800x600).

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

At 16 Watts, the PJD7830HDL has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the PJD7830HDL. Across all the projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PJD7830HDL the RMS rated power range from 1.5W to 20W.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Viewsonic PJD7830HDL does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PJD7830HDL do support 3D image projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Vivitek Q7 Plus[plb_2729062_price] or the Optoma X351[plb_2821583_price] are also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most data projectors of a comparable type and age to the PJD7830HDL do not support WiFi connectivity. The Viewsonic PJD7830HDL is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.
