Excerpt: I use this projector to watch old star wars laserdiscs and it is awesome. I love it. It is bright enough to display on a white wall. BH did a good job of getting it to me on time. This is the second projector that I have bought from BH. Good service and the product is well worth the money, Not HD, but it is exactly what I wanted. Like I said great product for the price.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Set Up, Good Focus, Lightweight, Powerful, Sharp Picture
Excerpt: I made a budget of $ to buy a projector. After comparing everything in that range I decided that the sonic pjd5132 was worth the extra $. And nothing at the $ range can touch its clean picture. Very pleased!!
Outstanding Projector, blows away a real theater's picture quality..

Summary: Great projector, however, I have only had the chance to use it once. I bought it for a classroom setup and month later the school installed projectors so now I am most likely going to sell it. The one time I did use it the image quality was better than looking at something in a movie theater, obviously HD and so forth.
Pros: Very bright display - works well even in well-lit conference rooms. Bought it for presentation use, but it also works great for movies as well. The price is absolutely unbeatable. I'm very happy and would definitely buy this again.
Cons: Can't quite figure out how to get the remote to work for advancing slides, etc. but that's just me. Display is only 800x600 - which I knew going in, and it hasn't been a problem for me, but may be a deal breaker for some.
Summary: Not having an HDMI port proved to be problematic and the picture ia always slightly crooked, and I have to prop up the left back leg with somthing everyb time, but a good picture, and so far no other problems , however in hindsight I wish I would have purchased the similar model with an HDMI port.

Great basic projector. Mac users - be warned though!

Summary: This is a nice, economical projector that's lightweight and relatively easy to use. Bought it to travel for events at work and making it a lot more efficient than renting projectors along the way. One warning for Mac users, you definitely need a VGA to Mini DisplayPort, I tried a DVI converter and it didn't quite work, so get something like "AmazonBasics Mini DisplayPort (Thunderbolt) to VGA Adapter" and it should be fine.
Summary: Projector failed on first use. Since it was 35 days after purchase, my only option is to send in to Viewsonic for repair (MY shipping cost!), or send in unit (MY shipping cost!), and get a refurbished unit. Poor height adjustment - can only raise front of projector with 1 adjustment foot in front center of projector. If tilt needs to be adjusted, use cardboard, napkins or whatever. Most other units have rear adjustments to correct for tilt - lacking on this model.
