ViewSonic's PJ1173 projector is quite bright

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, Mitsubishi and Toshiba. 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.
