10 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

The average expert rating of this data projector is 60% based on two expert reviews from sites including Digital Versus and Les Numeriques.com. This means that experts really don't rate this Viewsonic projector very highly.

Difficult to Use

One Viewsonic PJD8653WS owner who purchased it thought it was not easy to use. Digitalversus.com mentioned on expert review site Digital Versus “It can display a two-metre-wide image at just 63 cm from the wall or screen, making it an interesting option for rooms where there's not enough space to use a s”.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The PJD8653WS does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other data projectors of this age and type do support 3D image projection.

Alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to consider include the EH415[pl_2227615_price], or the X307[pl_1727619_price] both from Optoma or the Viewsonic PJD7533[plb_1549422_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors of a comparable age and type to the PJD8653WS do not support Full HD projection. The Viewsonic PJD8653WS is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Viewsonic PJD8633[plb_1597774_price], or the Optoma EH415[plb_2227615_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Viewsonic PJD8653WS does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PJD8653WS also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of multimedia projectors of this spec and age range from 700 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,200 ANSI lumens. At only 2,600 ANSI lumens, the PJD8653WS has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type.

If this Viewsonic projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the X307[pl_1727619_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens), or the W307[pl_1727438_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens) both from Optoma or the Viewsonic PJD8633[plb_1597774_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
