Released Over Four Years Ago

Average Noise Level

At 35 decibels, the Viewsonic PJD7820HD has a pretty typical noise level compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years.

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the PJD7820HD has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PJD7820HD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available including the Viewsonic PJD6683WS ($799.99) which has better reviews.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the IN124 ($385.99) (3,500 ANSI lumens), or the IN126 ($471.99) (3,500 ANSI lumens) both from Infocus.
