In trying to find a good projector for ~$400 for our office
In trying to find a good projector for ~$400 for our office, we did a lot of research. In the end, we couldn't decide between this and the ViewSonic PJD5533W - $430 at writing - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00511ITEM/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00511ITEM&linkCode=as2&tag=todmedblo-20&linkId=6CFHOT62HY2C5LOJ , so we purchased both. If you'll notice, the 5533 is an earlier version of this model, which is certainly a statement about the quality / value of ViewSonic projectors that they were both of our top 2 projectors.
After trying them both extensively, we came to the conclusion that they are nearly identical - and that the older model is a better value. Even if the marketing claims this has better image quality (which it doesn't seem to? they both claim the same contrast ratio), we couldn't tell a difference with our eyes. The newer version is a bit brighter (3,200 lumens vs 2,800 lumens) but we found both worked equally well, even for a well-lit office.
If you're looking for a fantastic projector for $430, we highly recommend the 5533. If you're really concerned about brightness (or plan on projecting it on a very large screen, 100" or more) this projector is also a good choice.
Ok, fine, this projector also looks slightly "sexier" than the 5533, so if you're trying to impress business clients, that's worth taking into account. On the other hand, this one is slightly larger and heavier, so if you're traveling a lot, or dealing with tight spaces, that's also worth considering.
I hope you found this helpful, and feel free to ask questions in the comments!
If you're on a tight budget and saving an extra $70 would make a big difference, you might also consider the Optoma X312. It has a slightly lower resolution, but we found the image quality and brightness to be comparable - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00T98WI40/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00T98WI40&linkCode=as2&tag=todmedblo-20&linkId=63IHMRM2G5RQRDT2
You might also want to consider getting a projector screen to maximize the image quality and brightness - I've had a wonderful experience with this FAVI 100 inch screen - plus, it's automated with a remote for maximum WOW factor! http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0017S37IG/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B0017S37IG&linkCode=as2&tag=todmedblo-20

SO glad I chose this one!
By Liberty A. Frederick
This projector is amazing!!
Honestly, I was overwhelmed with all of the choices out there and finally landed on Amazon's "most purchased" - which is the older model of this projector. I decided on this one because the price difference wasn't that drastic and I liked the idea of the energy/bulb conservation feature.
The image is crisp, and indoors, the sound is LOUD. For outdoor use (for which we purchased it) we definitely needed to hook up some speakers, but that's to be expected. I am not an expert in projectors - this is our first one - but I would highly recommend this to anyone who just wants something relatively inexpensive for setting up a backyard theater or for watching movies on a "big screen". (Heck, we've used it fairly close to the wall and watched it at "normal TV" size!)
We've only watched a dozen or so shows/movies so far, but I love how easily it connects to our Apple TV (and thus: iPhones/iPads), DVD player, and laptop. I absolutely love how easy it was to setup and how light and convenient it is to move when we need to. Definitely a win.
