ViewSonic PJD6531W.jpgWho needs a 3D TV when you can bag yourself a 3D projector for around half the price? That’s what ViewSonic‘s PJD6531W 3D ready projector offers. It’s out this month and comes in at a cheap £649.99.

So what’s to get excited about here? Other than the price tag and the 3D capabilities via a firmware update later in the year, this short throw projector can produce widescreen images up to 60 inches across from a distance of just 1.9 metres.

Images are beamed with 3,000 lumens of brightness, which means day-time viewing shouldn’t be half bad. An eco-mode will also save the bulbs life expectancy, promising 6,000 hours of constant usage. There is also a HDMI input and PC display inputs, making it handy for gaming, Blu-ray viewing and presentations alike.

If there’s one shortcoming however it’s that the images have a max resolution of 1280×800 WXGA 720p, rather than the superior 1080p. If that isn’t a problem for you however, this projector is definitely worth getting in for the World Cup.
