Oh joy, yet another ho hum projector trying to look all cool at InfoComm
. Next up on the walk of shame is ViewSonic's PJ1173, which falls right in line with the other lackluster beamers introduced today by the likes of Sharp
. The unit includes an XGA (1,024 x 768) native resolution, 1,000:1 contrast ratio, four-watt built-in speakers, an HDMI 1.3 socket and an admittedly respectable 5,000 lumens to light up auditoriums. Granted, this 15.8-pound beast does include an Ethernet port for network connectivity and management, but we're still not seeing the value when peeking that $3,799 price tag.
