An affordable multimedia projector with good specifications.
- High brightness, 1024x768 good for presentations
- Low contrast, not easily portable
The Viewsonic PJ760 DLP projector will suit those looking for a business projector that has high brightness levels and is well suited to presentations. It does suffer from a lack of contrast which makes it a poor choice for viewing video content.
Price$ 2,599.00 (AUD)
The Viewsonic PJ760 DLP projector is capable for most business tasks. When functioning as a multimedia projector it produces crisp and bright images, although full screen video is displayed with low contrast.
This DLP projector can be set up in a range of settings, and it has a minimum throw distance of 0.9 metres. At a distance of 1.8 metres, a 60in image is displayed — making this projector ideal to use in cramped environments. Two VGA inputs, as well as S-Video, component and composite inputs are available. There is also a VGA output for connecting an additional screen or projector. Controlling the projector is a simple task using either the bundled remote control or the buttons on top of the projector itself, which are easy to use for navigating the projector's functions.
The PJ760 DLP projector measures 34cm wide, 27cm deep and 10cm high — quite a hefty size. In fact it is significantly larger than other 1024x768 XGA resolution projectors we have tested — including the Dell M209X — but the reason for this size disparity becomes apparent when examining the specifications. The main advantage the Viewsonic PJ760 has over its competitor is its far higher brightness level, allowing this projector to be used in a wider variety of situations.
Brightness levels are higher than most of us need for day to day use, with a rating of 3200 ANSI lumens. This means the projector is capable of presenting a bright image in difficult environments including rooms lit by daylight.
At 1024x768 resolution, presentations displayed in our tests with no distortion of the straight or diagonal lines. This model is suitable to display complex graphs, too — sharpness is spot-on and it is consistent in every corner of the image.
Unfortunately the PJ760 DLP projector trades colour depth and contrast for brightness — the same compromise its rival the Sanyo PLC-XU105 made. As a result the quoted contrast ratio is 500:1. In our tests we found this contrast ratio was simply not enough for an enjoyable video-watching experience, with some detail lost — especially in the dark or bright areas of the screen. Nonetheless, this contrast ratio is still more than sufficient for business presentations though — it's intended function.
Fan noise from the PJ760 DLP projector was not intrusive nor too loud for regular usage. Viewsonic does not advertise the projector's decibel level but we found that the hum of the fan was inaudible from around a metre away in a relatively quiet room.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.
