Viewsonic is a popular electronics company which specializes in visual display technology. Viewsonic PJD7828HDL is another great projector under $1000 and it gives great value for money. Viewsonic PJD7828HDL is a direct competitor to the BenQ HT2050 and both projectors offer great value for money but the only area where BenQ HT2050 excel is the image as the image quality.
The image quality in Viewsonic PJD7828HDL is good but it lacks the deeper blacks.
The Viewsonic PJD7828HDL has Native resolution of 1080p with 3000 Lumens brightness, which allows you to use the projector in ambient light. As the Viewsonic is a DLP projector, you will find the high levels of DLP’s rainbow effect. You can reduce the rainbow effect with super Eco Lamp mode but it will also wash out the colors. The Viewsonic also supports the 3D and for that, you will have to use the external 3D glasses. The only problem with using 3D it is only half as bright as the 2D color preset. According to Viewsonic, the lamp has a life of 4000 hours, but it will burn out faster than its competitor and it also cost more to replace the lamp.
The connectivity options of the Viewsonic is good. You get 2 HDMI Input, 2 AV inputs, One Analog RGB PC Input, and only one USB Port. The Viewsonic PJD7828HDL also supports the MHL, which you will not find in BenQ HT2050.
The Viewsonic also comes with a built-in 10-watt mono speaker which offer good sound quality and it is enough to fill the large room but you will need the external speakers for some stereo sound. The Fan Noise in Viewsonic PJD7828HDL is also louder than BenQ HT2050. It is not uncomfortable, but you’ll notice it in quiet moments during watching the movie.
