ViewSonic PJD7820HD

 

The ViewSonic PJD7820HD is a lightweight 1080p data projector that does well in showing sharp text.

1080p resolution. Sharp text. Can project 3D content from Blu-ray players. Lightweight. Three-year warranty.

Subpar video with significant rainbow effect. Image quality suffers over a VGA connection. Weak audio.

If you don't show images with the small text or intricate detail that requires 1080p resolution, you might be better off with a WXGA data projector such as the Editors' Choice Epson PowerLite 955W WXGA 3LCD Projector. This 3,000-lumen projector showed...

Viewsonic PJD-7820HD review

 

If you've been looking to get into some big-screen action for under $1,000, Viewsonic's PJD-7820HD is just the ticket.

Extremely bright, suitable for use in bright rooms ; Vivid Colors ; Great 1080p resolution ; Portable, versatile placement ; Outstanding value

Speakers are nearly useless ; Picky remote control IR sensor

If you’ve been looking to get into some big-screen action for under $1,000, Viewsonic’s PJD-7820HD is just the ticket. This projector’s offers a unique blend of performance, features and price, giving it huge marks for value. Tack on an unusually long...

Viewsonic PJD7820HD

 

The PJD7820HD is a $699 projector suitable for business, and home use.

Excellent brightness - measured a maximum of over 3500 lumens ; More than enough brightness at max to handle very large rooms, and handle even 10 foot screens with pretty good color for commercial applications ; Two computer inputs, and a monitor out...

Tabletop setup would be easier if both rear feet were adjustable ; Remote control is not backlit ; Black levels are pretty entry level as a home projector ; On the home side: Lacks CFI for smooth motion (rare on entry level projectors) ; Very...

Impressive. Almost sensational. The Viewsonic PJD7820HD is all about price performance. We consider it to be a typically equipped low cost portable business projector, of the DLP variety, except that we're used to merely WXGA resolution, half the...

ViewSonic PJD7820HD review - HD projector good for business

 

Keen not to restrict its target audience, ViewSonic also believes the ViewSonic PJD7820HD projector will work effectively in home cinema. However, we'd suggest that the brightness rating of 3000 ANSI lumens is a little too much for the home.

business who need to be able to project large, sharp and extremely accurate video and HD images in a variety of conditions, the PJD7820HD has great specifications and strong performance that belies its £720 price tag.

ViewSonic PJD7820HD Projector Review

 

Steve Withers takes a look at a budget projector from ViewSonic. Is the price too good to be true?

Good 3D ; Price

Poor blacks ; Scaling on all content ; Inaccurate Colours ; Limited controls

Whilst it might be tempting to buy a very cheap projector, there are always going to be trade-offs in order to reach a certain price point. Generally the quality of the lens is compromised to reduce costs, as is build quality and features. The...

Ceiling projection

 

I just plugged a Roku 3 into it and can stream all kinds video.

I attached this to the wall behind my bed's headboard and project it on the ceiling. It allows me to watch TV without the strenuous work of sitting on a couch or sitting up in bed. It works well for this purpose, especially since I only watch it at...

There are no cons that I can think of. The speaker is certainly not designed to give a theatrical experience, so you will want to have external amp/speakers if you want to watch lots of media. The built in speaker is usable, however.

Great for office

 

So the manager's boss was all about us buying a big 80" plus flat screen, but I doubt we could touch one for what we have invested in this projector. We do NOT use it for viewing movies or broadcast TV. We use it for group viewing of software programs...

The screen is bright and easily visible in a brightly lit room. We were projecting on a beige painted wall for a few months and it was fine; finally installed the proper dimensioned screen (100" 16:9) and it's just as clear. Many adjustments to correct...

I suppose it is not the sleekest looking box, but this is a business and we don't care. It is now hung from the ceiling so no one looks at it much anyhow
