Very good experience with this product and seller.

  • Summary: Very pleased with the purchase. The projector works well exactly as stated. It is very light, compared to the previous projector I have been using. The lamp does not burn as hot as some models, but the illumination produced is fine. I would highly recommend this model to everyone.

Beautiful picture/ 3 Repeated failures & failed replacements/ Terrible CS

Sarah Moore "S.Moores", Amazon
7 July 2009
  • Summary: I loved my viewsonic PJ458D. I loved it until I had it about a month and the red light began blinking notating overheating. I sent it in and 3 months passed while the warranty and repair tried to work out the issues.

Good Entry-Mid Level Projector at an affordable price

Ian Short "TheChinglish", Amazon
26 November 2008
  • Summary: This is my first projector, I got it about a year ago and the way I have it setup is what you could consider "home cinema". I have a media PC hooked up to it via VGA (15 pin DSub) and a Playstation 2 hooked up via S-Video. The VGA setup comes out very crisp, for HD videos as well as HDTV.

Repeated failures

R. Alan Mebane, Amazon
26 November 2008
  • Summary: ViewSonic has replaced my brand new PJ458D model projector three times, and the current one has also failed after 10-30 minutes. In each case, the lamp shuts down and cannot be restarted until it cools. Several times the fan also shut down with the lamp, shortening the life of the bulb.

Two defective units so far

Nelson, Amazon
28 September 2008
  • Summary: The first unit had a non-functional control panel. Except the power button, pressing other buttons on the unit had no effect. Pressing the menu key on the remote brought up the menu but nothing could be selected. The picture could be displayed but was in a distorted shape. Nothing could be adjusted.

User Review

Jimbo, Projector Central
26 August 2008
  • Summary: Personal Experience This projector is very bright, enough for daytime use. Color is not accurate, but most people cannot tell. There's the rainbow effect, but most people cannot tell. Beside after a week, it'll disappear (you get use to it). Great black levels.

Really Nice Little Projector

D. Mort, Amazon
21 August 2008
  • Summary: While there are certainly individual variations on products, the bad reviews below skew the ratings unjustifiably, IMO. I have had this projector for about two months, and while I don't use it everyday, I have used it a lot.
