Connection options are somewhat limited ; No network display capability or wireless networking

While the Viewsonic PJD5533w is obviously aimed at the budget-conscious presenter, it is a solid performer. By focusing on quality presentation abilities and low maintenance costs, Viewsonic has created a projector that will appeal to a lot of school...

Good option for a boardroom setting


We are using this in a large boardroom for online training and demonstrations. It has a good picture on our 8 ft screen. Runs quiet, so it does not interfere with handsfree telephone conversations.Peter McNamara
