Summary: ****I bought this projector to use with a new laptop that has Windows Vista as the operating system and thought at first that it didn't have any drivers compatible with Vista. Well, I found out that I don't need drivers, regardless of what the installation software says "driver for this monitor not found". Ignore that and go on with the installation. It'll work! I tried to change the star rating I'd given it at first, but Amazon wouldn't let me!
Summary: I purchased this product for a family reunion. It was an excellent purchase and the delivery was excellent. This projector has 2000 lumens and is was excellent for my presentation. My projector only had 46 hours of use. I keep the dlp projector in the economy mode and the display is still great. It runs quieter too.
Great projector-bright, affordable, Great for games

Summary: My ViewSonic PJ506D has met or exceeded my expectations in every way. Even the remote is well thought out-it includes keystone, menu options, and even a nice little laser pointer built in. Plus you get a very nice soft carrying case to carry it around (it weighs in at just under 6 pounds, not bad at all for a DLP projector). The Auto-Detect takes the gueswork out of hooking this unit up.
Summary: Personal Experience I picked this up as a package deal with ceiling mount and 80" 4x3 Elite pulldown screen from (dealer ommited) for about $600. It's an adequate unit for what it does and doesn't have any frills, but the price was great allowing me to enter the projector world. The DLP rainbow effect was very evident at first but I quickly adapted and don't notice it at all anymore.
