Summary: This projector has been one of my favorite gadgets I have purchased. I'm not a tech-geek - I'm not overly concerned about crazy resolution or anything like that. I just wanted something that would allow me to both watch movies and play video games wherever I wanted and produce a picture that wasn't noticeably crappy. I usually will just project the picture onto a wall in my house. Most of my walls are light colored, though none of them are perfectly white.
Summary: Good projector. Good Picture. Only one complaint. You cannot advance Power Point slides with the remote. The remote is for settings and turning on/off only. Totally useless for my purposes which is delivering power point presentations to an audience. Probably good for watching movies or what not, but not what I wanted. Next time I will ask more questions.
Summary: This is a great projector, I don't have a tv anymore, I have this hooked up to my computer,WII,DVD player, and Digital converter box, projecting on a 7 foot screen. Quality is great under all formats.
Summary: Personal Experience This little guy is pulling hard as our TV for about a year now (1600 hours on the lamp). The image quality depends mainly on the source. I tried many products to feed the VGA input with a component RGB signal, most miserably failed, however any Japanese I tried works flawlessly (no more Samsung or LG for me ever, they feed horrible pictures via component, the LG produced square shaped "o"-s on running text at the bottom on CNN).
Summary: My wife and I just hosted a movie night at a club we belong to using our ViewSonic projector, Phillips HD dvd player that upconverts to 1080! [...] In Summary: the HD Picture Quality was excellent and we got some great feedback from our movie night viewers. There are other more expensive HD Projectors out there for $2,000 and up, but I'll bet the picture quality will now be better than this one.
Summary: First one the "Menu" button didn't work. Amazon refunded the price and shipping without any questions. Second one works great. Very quiet, plenty bright for my needs. More features than I needed. Good size and resolution. Only drawback is that the remote has a limited range.
Summary: I love my new ViewSonic projector. It was very easy to setup the first time. Right out of the box, up in running in minutes. The image is beautiful and very bright even in my living room with east wall all windows. Only con is the zoom lens feature. The zoom lens has almost no effect on the size of the image. This is mainly in trying to reduce the image.
Summary: I purchased this to use for presentations at my Rotary Club meetings. It works great so far. It gives a 4'x4' picture from about 8' and is bright enough to use in a well lit room. It is very easy to use since it finds the signal from the computer by itself. It is ready to use right out of the box (just add computer). At $400, it seems to be worth every penny.
Summary: I don't have enough experience with this product to rate it a 5. I've used it twice for presentations. It went up right out of the box with no problems, image quality for presentations is as good or better than I expected for the price, and it performs as advertised for that purpose. It's light and compact and doesn't have a fragile feel to it, although I'm sure that care should be exercised, especially in transporting it.
