Many years ago, I had a projector setup in my lounge room, but back then even a mid-range projector cost north of $2000. I settled on a Sony projector that was capable of outputting 720p back when the Xbox 360 launched, and spent close to $5000 on a projector and pull-down screen. It was quite the setup back in the day, before LCD TVs really took off, and have now completely bottomed out in price.
ViewSonic reached out to me to see if I would like to review one of their projectors, I agreed and that's how we're here today. ViewSonic actually do a number of projectors, which range from smaller, more portable units like the one we have here today with the PJD5255, right up to professional units that pump out Full HD, or 1920x1080.
In their XGA-capable range, ViewSonic has an impressive 13 different products to handle all corners of the market. The company also splits these projectors into their respective markets: entertainment, business, LightStream, government, education, and LED.
Specifications & Availability
The ViewSonic LightStream PJD5255, as the company explains it, is a "price-performance projector features 3300 lumens, native XGA 1024x768 resolution, and intuitive, user-friendly design". The last bit is definitely true, with some very easy-to-use functionality, which we'll get into soon.
The PJD5255 features HDMI input, two VGA, composite video, S-video, one VGA output, audio in/out, mini USB and RS232. ViewSonic ensures that you'll have your device, laptop, or PC hooked up to the PJD5255 without a problem.
ViewSonic is aiming the PJD5255 projector to the education and small business environments, so this isn't a full-fledged home theater projector by any means. When it comes to price, the ViewSonic LightStream PJD5255 can be found on Amazon for $427.99 at the time of writing.
