There’s something visceral about enjoying movies on large display which does explain the proliferation of ever larger TVs taking up centre stage in living rooms across the planet. As enjoyable as they may be, the sheer size of modern TVs are also a disadvantage, taking up valuable real estate in smaller homes that may not necessarily have the space to begin with as well as lending itself to being less than portable, if not fragile to move around.
In scenarios like this where users need a highly compact viewing solution that can offer large-screen viewing in a compact form factor, an LED projector is an ideal solution that’s not only effective, reliable and affordable too which is where Viewsonic’s line-up of award-winning compact LED projectors come into the picture.
Why pick Viewsonic LED Projectors?
For the uninitiated, an LED projector functions in a somewhat similar fashion as a traditional lamp based projector with the key advantage being that LEDs last longer, have lower heat output and thus less need for noisy cooling fans which, by extension, also means less noise.
This makes LED projectors smaller, more compact and more importantly, quieter too which is why the range of ViewSonic LED projectors have consistently remained as one of the top 3 best selling brands in Malaysia for the entirety of 2019 from Q1 to Q4 based on data from the Future Source Report for 2019. According to the report, ViewSonic LED projectors also managed to achieve an impressive 55% market share in Malaysia in 2019 which is quite an achievement indeed.
Leading the charge for ViewSonic’s award-winning LED projector line-up is their flagship X-series X10-4K home projector that serves up stunning 4K UHD resolution video with excellent colour reproduction and rich audio from Harman Kardon in a form factor little larger than a shoebox. That means you can enjoy a cinematic experience anywhere in the house. Also available are Viewsonic’s M series portable LED projectors with the M1 and M1 mini Plus offering portable viewing in a super compact pocket-sized form factor. Here’s how they stack up:
