Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: Bright, runs long well, small.
  • Cons: Leveling this thing is rocket science. The rear legs extend by screw action to lower opposite front corner. Turn it side to side at all and it's messed up again. Table top it trapezoids, though there might be a setting for that I haven't found. Some text isn't as nice as I'd like.

  • Cons: The previous reviewer is partially correct, you cannot access certain menus without a video source connected. Once a source is connected, all the menus are enabled and you can change the picture orientation, etc.

  • Summary: I will not recommend buying this product for the lack of menu options. I was looking between two different projectors and went with this one (which was more expensive) and now I regret my desicion.

  • Summary: Personal Experience After trying a few other projectorS I have found the PJ588D exceptional, being used everyday as the main TV for the lounge room it has run faultlessly and the picture quality is fantastic. The other projectors i have tried are not even in the same league, excleent allround!!

  • Summary: Personal Experience Great for presentations and reasonable for movies though the dark parts of the movie lack some clarity. Overall a great buy for the price. Problems When I first used it the colour handling was not as good as I wanted.
