There are a number of alternative projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to look at including the HD240W[pl_3856555_price], or the BR324[pl_2918897_price] both from Optoma or the Panasonic PT-DW750BE[plb_3496646_price] which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

Heavy

4 Other reasons to consider the Viewsonic PJD5255L

Released Over a Year Ago

This projector was released over a year ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the PJD5255L has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that came out around the same time as the PJD5255L.

We compared all the other 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors to this multimedia projector and we think the Viewsonic PJD5550LWS[plb_2894982_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the Optoma 95.8WR02GC1E[plb_2971638_price] (3,400 ANSI lumens), the Infocus SP1080[plb_3696418_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens), or the Viewsonic PJD6552LW[plb_3220997_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

XGA (1024x768) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the PJD5255L is XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

The PJD5255L has a relatively standard noise level (32 decibels) compared to most of the other data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PJD5255L.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 32dB noise level projectors currently available including the PJD5250[pl_2895208_price], the PJD6352LS[pl_2857807_price], or the PJD5150[pl_2895206_price] all from Viewsonic which has better reviews.
