Excerpt: ViewSonic is just one of the many brands trying to push projectors into the home theatre market as good replacements for large TVs. The design of the PJ258D is great—it’s compact and has a jet black glossy piano finish which makes it stand out—and which also makes it a fingerprint magnet.
Excerpt: Despite its 1,024 x 768 native resolution and packaging boasting that what’s inside “supports multiple HDTV formats,” the ViewDock offers only component, composite, S-video, and VGA inputs. That means no HD for you, Hoss. But if you’re looking for a projector that can have some fun, you’re in luck.
Pros: It’s light, portable, and comes with a carrying case. Football games and iTunes downloads on the wall — this would make the perfect frat-house player.
Cons: 4:3 aspect ratio. Video-processing power? Nope. Projector remote will control docked iPod, but interface is counterintuitive.
Excerpt: ViewSonic Corp. has always been an innovator, from being one of the first CRT display manufacturers to put speakers in monitor bezels, to adding a built in iPod dock to an LCD display's base. The company has gone a bit further by adding an iPod dock to a DLP projector, the PJ258D.
Excerpt: Projector Reviews The Viewsonic PJ258D is an awsome little portable unit. With its powerful 2000 ANSI Lumen rating the Viewsonic has the ability to create a clear image, even with an artaficially lit room.
Summary: Hvis du bliver træt i øjnene og hovedet af at se film på din iPod's lillebitte skærm, og har du omkring 8000 kroner, som du ikke ved, hvor du skal gøre af, så er der godt nyt. ViewSonics nye fikse projektor understøtter nemlig video-iPod's og kan blæse billedet op på væggen i storformat.
Pros: Understøtter iPod's, Lækkert design, Leverer et godt billede
