A Closer Look


ViewSonic has some super-plain packaging for the LightStream PJD5255, but since it's aimed at the education and small business markets, we don't need flashy packaging to attract customers on retail shelves. Inside however, the LightStream PJD5255 is quite an attractive projector.




Starting with the box, we have the plain packaging for the projector, as you can see.





Out of the box, we have the LightStream PJD5255 projector. From the front, we have some ViewSonic branding up the top with the triple-bird logo in plain sight.




A closer look at the lens, which has a digital zoom of between 0.8x to 2.0x.




On the sides of the LightStream PJD5255, we have lots of venting to keep it nice and cool under operation.




On the rear of the LightStream PJD5255 we have all of our connectivity. Starting from the left, we have 3.5mm audio in, S-video, composite video, HDMI, two VGA inputs, one VGA out, mini USB and RS-232. To the bottom left, we have the power port.




From the top, starting with the top left, we have our lens that we can adjust the throw distance with the zoom, and the focus ring. We can see ViewSonic branding smack bang in the middle, and some controls in the bottom right.




A closer look at the lens, focus and zoom.




Here we have a closer look at the controls, which is a nice touch for business and education users as they have direct, and very easy access to the controls of the projector - but there's a remote that you can use, too.




On the bottom, we have some mounts that can be used and some details and regulations that the LightStream PJD5255 has passed. There's also the warning that the lamp in the product contains mercury, so please be careful when taking out and replacing the lamp.




ViewSonic has opted to provide consumers with a remote, which is a nice touch. Even though there's controls on the projector itself, a remote makes things much easier to control the projector with from a distance.
