Good High Def TV

One Viewsonic PJD8653WS reviewer considered that it was good at displaying high definition TV. Digitalversus.com wrote in their review of the Viewsonic PJD8653WS on Digital Versus “The ViewSonic PJD8653ws is a HD projector (1280 x 800 pixels) with an ultra-short throw distance”.

9 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

On average, based on two expert reviews from sites including Digital Versus and Les Numeriques.com the average expert rating of this Viewsonic projector is 60 out of 100. This means that experts really don't rate this projector very highly.

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

Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for more than two years support 3D, however the PJD8653WS does not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support 3D including the X501[pl_2279545_price], or the EH415[pl_2227615_price] both from Optoma which also has a higher rating.
