Supports 3D

The PJD5533W supports 3D, as do most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the PJD5533W.

Alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D currently available that you might also want to consider include cheaper projectors such as the Optoma EH300[plb_1727047_price].

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D and we think the W307[pl_1727438_price], or the X307[pl_1727619_price] both from Optoma is also worth considering.
