Ricoh PJ X5460

If you’re in the market for a projector that’s bright enough for a midsize to large room, the Ricoh PJ X5460 ($860) is worth considering. It doesn’t handle detail like small-size white text on a black background as well as much of the competition, but the X5460 is light enough to carry easily if you need to, and it’s one of the few DLP data projectors that delivers watchable video.

The X5460 shares much of its design with the WXGA (1,280-by-800) Ricoh PJ WX5460. Along with the lower resolution, the X5460 offers a slightly lower brightness rating, at 4,000 lumens, but the two are essentially identical, with the same dimensions and weight, at 4 by 12.4 by 8.8 inches (HWD) and 6 pounds 10 ounces, the same set of ports, and even the same 1.1x zoom lens. For details on those features, as well as setup, take a look at our review of the Ricoh PJ WX5460.

The pj x5460 offers a slightly higher brightness rating than the Epson PowerLite 965H XGA 3LCD Projector, which is our Editors’ Choice XGA projector for a small to midsize conference room or classroom. However, comparing the brightness between these two projectors is less straightforward than you might expect. The Epson model uses a three-chip LCD engine, which means it has the same color and white brightness. In contrast, the X5460, like most DLP data projectors, has a lower color than white brightness.

Because of the difference in brightness levels, full-color images with the X5460 won’t be as bright as you would expect from the white brightness. That, in turn, means that its higher brightness rating compared with the Epson 965H doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s brighter for all images. (For more on the topic, see Color Brightness: What It Is, Why It Matters.)

Keeping that qualification in mind, and strictly as a point of reference, according to the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) recommendations, 4,000 lumens is bright enough at the X5460’s native 4:3 aspect ratio for a 233- to 316-inch image (measured diagonally) in theater-dark lighting and assuming a 1.0-gain screen. With moderate ambient light, the appropriate maximum screen size drops to 152 inches. For smaller image sizes, you can lower the brightness level by using the projector’s Eco lamp mode, one of its lower-brightness predefined modes, or both.

One of the disadvantages for single-chip DLP projectors in general, compared with three-chip LCD models, is that they can show rainbow artifacts (red-green-blue flashes). This is not much of an issue for the X5460, however, particularly for data images.

With one image in our tests that’s designed to make these artifacts show, I saw hints of them, but only when I made a point of shifting my gaze back and forth quickly. With full-motion video, I saw them often enough in a black-and-white clip in our tests that they could be annoying to people who see them easily and are bothered by them. With our color clips, however, they showed so rarely that it’s unlikely anyone will consider them a problem.

A key advantage for DLP models like the X5460 is that 3D support is all but standard with DLP designs, but rare for LCD data projectors. This doesn’t matter in most cases, since most data projector applications don’t need 3D. But if you happen to need it, the X5460 offers it, with support for all HDMI 1.4a 3D formats, using DLP-Link glasses.

Image quality for the X5460 is good enough for most purposes. On our standard suite of DisplayMate tests, some colors were a little dark with every preset mode, which is expected for a projector with a lower color than white brightness. On the plus side, color balance was excellent, with suitably neutral grays from white to black in every mode.

A more important issue for data images is that the X5460 doesn’t do a uniformly good job with detail. Black text on white was crisp and highly readable on my tests, even at sizes as small as 6.8 points. However, white text on black was readable at 16.5 points. At 12 points, the text was readable, but ragged. At smaller sizes, I found it hard to read. Fortunately, this should be good enough for most purposes. If you need to show fine detail, you should be looking at models with a higher resolution than XGA.

On our full-motion video tests, the X5460 did far better than most data projectors. The contrast ratio is a little low, which gives colors a faded look, but the video qualifies as watchable. The frequent rainbow artifacts I saw with our black-and-white clip make the projector a poor choice for showing black-and-white movies if there’s a chance that there’s anyone in the audience who sees these artifacts easily. However, that shouldn’t be an issue for shorter black-and-white clips or even full-length movies in color.
