Using the ViewSonic LightStream PJD5255 Projector
I used the LightStream PJD5255 Projector in my office (which is rather large) where it sat on my desk next to my monitors, blasting onto the wall in front of me. The wall is around 10 feet away, so the image on the wall was quite large, but not as large as I wanted.
Moving the projector to the other side of my office and blasting it onto a wall around 20 feet away, and the image was double the size - much better!
When it was blasting on the wall, I adjusted the refresh rate to 100Hz, which resulted in a far smoother experience. Once you start using high refresh monitors, you can't go back, so the use of a projector that is capable of 100Hz is nothing short of impressive. Sure, the resolution will let you down, but this isn't geared towards gamers.
But, that didn't stop me from playing Battlefield 4 on the ViewSonic projector. At 1024x768, my NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X video card had no issue playing at Ultra detail at 100FPS minimum, which is exactly what I did. The ViewSonic LightStream PJD5255 handled it like a champion, with super bright images and silky smooth performance.
For data or office use, the PJD5255 is great. This is the market ViewSonic is aiming for, so I used it as a third monitor for a week with great results. I had the PJD5255 projecting above my monitors, and against the wall, so I had the main page of TweakTown on the wall at all times and browsed Reddit throughout the day.
When I was bored, I would play some TV episodes or movies through Netflix, so I got some great use out of the projector. I had nothing but a smile on my face while watching and reading content on my wall. My daughter would walk into the room in amazement that the image was "so big" that she could "watch YouTube videos all day" on it.
