ViewSonic PJD7820HD Projector Highlights

  • An extremely bright portable projector - a veritable light canon claiming 3000 lumens
  • Equally suitable as a business projector or one for home use
  • Lowest cost 1080p projector on the market as of this time, in either business or home projector segments

  • HDMI (one) 1.4 for Blu-ray 3D compatibility

From the Editor: This video was created as a summary of the original, full, in-depth projector review of the ViewSonic PJD7820HD that was posted in August of 2012. It was directed and scripted by Lisa Feierman, and features Art Feierman, editor of

Videos that are part of the Projector Reviews TV channel are created by Projector Reviews Inc. If we review a projector and it wins one of our awards, it becomes eligible for a video summary. Of course, we can only do a limited number of these videos. In some cases, we will choose a projector review to do a video of. In other cases, a request may come from the manufacturer. As we do with the rest of the content on our website, we offer manufacturers Permissions.

With these paid Permissions, manufacturers can post these videos on their own websites, pass them out to their dealers, and use them for other promotional purposes including trade shows and point-of-sale displays in retail stores. These videos are very short versions of the full review. In just a few minutes worth of video we can't begin to capture all the information in the review, so we call this a video summary.

If this video is positive and enthusiastic about the projector, is simply because the review itself was positive and enthusiastic. We try to make the videos more fun, a bit less dry, with far less technical detail. Enjoy, but also visit the full review for more depth, even the settings that work best. Thanks! -art
