Reasons For

Viewsonic PJD5153 Viewsonic PJD5155
2 Reasons For
2dB Quieter Noise Level
The Viewsonic PJD5153 has a noise level of 32dB, whereas the Viewsonic PJD5155 is a 34dB projector (2dB louder).

The noise level of the projector is the amount of noise that the projector makes (caused by the cooling fan inside the projector) when it is running.

A lower noise level means that the projector will be quieter when it is running. This means that you will be able to appreciate the quieter parts of films better without the background noise of the projector running.

Read more Read less | Edit
$76 Cheaper
The Viewsonic PJD5153 is $75.99 cheaper than the Viewsonic PJD5155.
3 Reasons For
A Little Brighter Projector Brightness
The Viewsonic PJD5155 has a projector brightness of 3,300 ANSI lumens, however the Viewsonic PJD5153 is only a 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projector (100 ANSI lumens dimmer).

This is how bright the bulb in the projector is, measured in 'lumens'.

A brighter bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

Read more Read less | Edit
A Lot Longer Service Life of Lamp
The Viewsonic PJD5155 is a 10,000h lamp service life projector, whereas the Viewsonic PJD5153 is only a 5,000h lamp service life projector (5,000h shorter).

This indicates how long the lamp in the projector will last before it needs to be replaced, measured in hours.

A longer life lamp means you'll need to replace it far less frequently, saving you money.

Read more Read less | Edit
3D
The Viewsonic PJD5155 supports 3D, but the Viewsonic PJD5153 does not support 3D.

3D compatible projectors are able to display 3D content. Most projectors will require you to wear special glasses in order to view the 3D effect.

A 3D projector allows you to view the huge range of 3D films and content that is now available.

Energy Efficiency

Running Costs Over 5 Years

Projector running costs calculated based on an average of 5 hours of use per week. The running cost comprises the electricity cost when using the projector and the electricity standby cost. Compare all energy saving projectors.

Environmental Impact

We have calculated the amount of CO2 that will be generated by running each of these projectors for 5 years. We have then converted that into the number of tree seedlings that you would need to plant and grow for 10 years in order to offset that amount of CO2.
