ViewSonic PLED W200:
A Robust Pocket Projector

Allan Abbott, October 4, 2012


Placement Flexibility. Like all pico projectors, the PLED-W200 has a fixed focal length lens. That can limit your placement options because a particular image size requires a specific projection distance. However, the throw ratio does allow relatively large images with short projection distances, so you may not find the lack of a zoom lens problematic.

Image Color Bias.Low cost LED illumination systems often fall short of mercury vapor lamps when it comes to color uniformity. With the PLED-W200, you will see this effect on a white screen in the form of slight blue-green tint in the left half of the image. This may be a slight distraction in data presentations, but in video presentations it is not noticeable.

Presets. The PLED-W200's four preset modes (Brightest, PC, Movie, and ViewMatch) are not particularly effective. For example, flesh tones are off in Movie mode, and Brightest mode has more than the usual green overtones. ViewMatch gave the most pleasing video rendering, but to really achieve the best images, you will have to resort to the image settings available in the two User modes. In general, lowering brightness and saturation while raising contrast will produce the best results.


ViewSonic has broken new ground with the PLED-W200. It is neither a pico nor a mini but shares both characteristics. It is small, light, and versatile, and it is priced competitively for a WXGA projector. Its video performance will not compete with larger projectors, but for a 250-lumen projector, it does a good job for personal viewing and for small gatherings.
