ViewSonic PJD6544w Projector Review
Viewsonic PJD6544w Features and Accessories
The Viewsonic PJD6544 comes with a standard hardware package. In addition to the projector, you get an AC power cord, remote with batteries, VGA cable (D-SUB to D- SUB), carrying case (theoretically anyhow since it didn’t come with mine anyways and the website says nothing about it), instruction sheet and a CD Wizard. There was no lens cap included and everyone knows what power cables look like but yes, the power connections vary with the regions of the world they are sold in. Moving right along, let’s check out the remote.
The Remote Control
The PJD6544w wireless remote is infrared but can be used to operate the projector from either the front or back. The only caveat is that direct sunlight or ambient light may affect the remote’s performance. It measures 5.5” x 2” x 1.5” which is pretty typical for a projector remote. It is simple to operate in comparison to other remotes I’ve seen. Auto Sync is a nice touch. It automatically determines the best picture timings but only works with Composite, S video and HDMI. The remote also has selectors for the various VGA 1 or 2 ports as well as Video content. The 4-directional pad is pretty standard in allowing you to browse the various menu options in addition to using its vertical arrows as keystone adjustors. This is one of those products that requires little if anything in regards to calibration. A good feature to always have especially with a classroom projector is the mouse option. In addition to the various volume, pattern, menu, magnify, source, etc. controls, the need for easy computer interface is either a deal maker or breaker. If your projector doesn’t work well with your computer, it ain’t your brand. I am especially talking about the mouse feature. It is often overlooked and that’s a mistake. This projector has it and that’s a great thing. Also, despite being geared for educational applications, this projector has 3D capabilities. Even though your typical AV enthusiast uses 3D only on occasion, it’s still a cool feature to have when you’re up for it.
