ViewSonic PJ551D review


A budget projector that fails to make a lasting impression

Decent performance ; Budget price

Frustrating remote ; Basic connectivity ; Quite noisy

A nice price isn't enough to make this an appealing projector when its rivals have many more features without you having to spend much more

The Viewsonic PJ551 is a model that targets the budget-conscious consumer, and it performs solidly. It may not have class-leading specifications, but for the price it's definitely a good choice.

Good Product, great picture, simple to use!


I purchased this as a replacement for an older projector. It is much sharper, brighter, and has better color saturation than the one it replaced. Control range is somewhat limited but it works well.
