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.

  • 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.

Good Entry-Mid Level Projector at an affordable price

Ian Short "TheChinglish", Amazon
30 April 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.

Worked great until it didn't anymore....not-so-great service

David Sumner "dasumner", Amazon
20 November 2007
  • Summary: This was my first projector. I was very happy with it until one day, with no warning, it stopped working. I would turn it on, and within 5 seconds it would indicate the temp was too high and shut itself off. I contacted Viewsonic to arrange a warranty repair.

  • Summary: Personal Experience This was my first foray into projectors. I bought it to replace my TV. Nightime viewing is great. Daytime ambient light completely overwhelms the picture (even with the blinds closed). It's a great size for taking on the road for presentations.

  • Summary: Personal Experience Just bought this projector to replace my Epson Powerlite Home 20. I use it mostly to play video games from my PC. Forget it, this projector doesn't have 2000:1 contrast.

Get's the job done.

S. Karstens, Amazon
20 September 2007
  • Summary: My first attempt of setup was setting it on the coffee table in front of me, but it seemed to keep over heating and shutting itself off to cool. Since I installed it from the ceiling, it has not over heated. I am projecting a really nice 90" widescreen image from about 8' from the screen.

  • Summary: I didnt espected this projector is this good. Satisfy and recommended!
  • Pros: Nice design. Bright and sharp picture. That's good enough for bussiness and home movie. The quality is too good for the price.
  • Cons: The bag is too small, the cables might damage the projector. Viesonic should make it a little bit bigger. Seriously!
