I need to buy a new projector, as my old one needs to be retired. I have been a happy Epson customer, so I am wary of change. However, there seem to be some viable alternatives on the market.
Right now I am looking at the Epson VS230, which sports 2800 Lumens and seems enormous in pictures, and the Viewsonic PJD5533W, with 3000 Lumens and a bit less bulk.
Which would be the best choice?
Suggestion on projectors: Epson VS230 or Viewsonic PJD5533W
When we buy new products, especially projectors, we would like to highlight: usability, portability, features, affordability and practicability. The most important thought that we have is "getting the most convenience out of the price we pay". On the other hand, if we're user of a certain product, we also want to explore and try other things.
We would like first to understand what type of users are we? What often do we use the projector? Are you a professor, business man or a student? This is for us to understand the practicability of selecting the best option for us.
The Epson VS230 with its key features: 2800 lumens of color brightness, which offers 3x brightness of Epson projector products; 800 x 600 resolutions, which gives users HD image/video; HDMI connectivity, that includes audio and video connection for HD quality; Easy Image Alignment, adjustable horizontal and vertical image for a desired display; PC free presentation, that users can view JPEG image through flash drive; Plug and Play, projects image instantly through USB cable.
Meanwhile, the Viewsonic PJD5533W with its key features: 3000 lumens of brightness, that gives a high quality image; 15,000:1 Contrast Ratio, which gives wide range of shades to change from; DynamicEco Technoloy, which you can save energy by simply pressing the button in the projector, DLP Technology, gives crystal display; Portable design, an easy to carry on.
With the key features of both device, we can say that the Epson VS230 is above Viewsonic PJD5533W. However, in terms of lumens, Viewsonic PJD5533W is greater.
In terms of affordability, Epson VS230 cost around $360 while Viewsonic PJD5533W cost around $450. With the price difference contrary to the features offered, I can say that you should stay loyal to Epson.
