Summary: For the size and price this a great little projector. I wanted something small and light weight that I could travel with for client presentations. It is better than I hoped it would be. The projection quality is good. It's tiny and so light weight in comparison to my former expensive projector. It is very easy to hook up and operate. The only thing I was not thrilled about it that there is no remote control to advance the slifes.
Summary: The third party power supply (AC adapter) that came with the projector died during my first presentation about 3 hours in to it. The projector is great, the power-supply is Asian no name junk. I am out an additional 60.00 because I need the projector/don't have time to go through a return process and so went to Fry's and bought another. My first ever bad experience- but Amazon is NOT responsible.
Summary: I think this is the best balance between weight, size and lumens. It fits nicely in my backpack with a netbook and I use it to give classes. I dont know how could a live without this projector!
Summary: Bought the project for occasional use. Used it one time and the next time I pulled it out of the box it wouldn't work. I sent it back to ViewSonic and it took them well beyond the promised turn around time for repairs. They sent a refurbished model at that and not the original. I used it once and it worked fine and now it doesn't work again. I have had it less than a year and have less than 2 hours of use.
Summary: I'm an Author, Career Coach and Speaker on Job Search & Career Management. I give lectures and presentations all of the time at corporate events, YMCA in NYC, at colleges and universities (for both students and alumni), and at The New York Public Library's JOB SEARCH CENTRAL. While most of my venues do have projectors for my use (and they are VERY bright), some do not. THIS projector is PERFECT. 400 lumens. Not like daylight, for sure...
Summary: Just got it, tested it out, and got serious air let out of my tires. This is a beautifully designed product, tiny in size, next step from the pocket projectors, light, portable, plug-n-play, all that. But when it came to picture quality, particularly color reproduction - it's not even close. Sad, since I was planning on using it for my portfolio presentation, and with at least an hour worth of adjustments and mocking around, the picture is pathetic at best.
Summary: The unit has a good image quality and brightness for the price but the lack of a carrying case force the user to carry with the power supply (which is large and heavy by the way), the DB9 cable, CD software and remote control elsewhere.... come on ViewSonic dont be so cheap selling a good middle class projector lacking such a basic accessory?
Summary: The picture is big and beautiful. The machine is plug and play. The lamp is bright enough so that you don't need total darkness. When you turn it off the lamp is cool so that you can pack it up immediately to take it. It's just 2 pounds so that it's a dream to transport. I really couldn't be happier with it.
