Summary: I received this projector think it wasnt going to be any good, but to my surprise this little projector packs a huge punch. I use to project on to my wall and it has,no problem over coming the outside light that shines on it.
Summary: Very bright. It only has VGA for your HD signal. I used an adapter to get around this. Very good so far for a very low price. I project a tv signal in the room with a light on and is very clear even with the light on. I do wish it came with a Composite input for HD though. No white Dots so far.
Summary: For the price, I think the View Sonic is a great projector. I purchased it to practice video mapping and animation. Similar to other reviews, the fan is a little loud but shouldn't be a deal breaker. I recommend this projector for anyone on a budget.

Summary: We purchased projector for outdoor movie nights .... we display on a king size sheet and I am very happy with picture.. I have to say ..... I am very picky when it comes to picture quality. But with this projector the image is very clear and when blu ray played the picture is high quality .....
Summary: I didn't spend much on it ($169 refurbished), and it was a great deal at that price. It works good: Clear picture through the computer, DVD player, and the cable box. I use it outside for baseball games, and the only problem is it doesn't work very well until the sun goes down (even in the shade).
decent for the price, not a rock star by any means

Summary: I bought a reconditioned one with a new lamp in it, it's bright enough in a darkened room, it does distort colors some what. I actually wish it would work in closer spaces, but if you have a few meters (yards) to setup away from screen or wall, you should be good to go.
Summary: Other reviewers report problems with this device. I happen to have one that has been working just fine since 2009 with no problems. Beyond that, I will add: 1. A replacement lamp is around $200. That is not unusual for DLP projectors, but you should know. The lamp is rated at about 4000 hours.
Summary: If the projector supported HDMI, it would be perfect. Instead you are limited to VGA, S-Video, and Component Video. Last night, we watched a movie on the garage door under the stars. It was perfect!
Summary: We weren't interested in researching the newest inputs/outputs, refresh rates or dpi - we just wanted to purchase a projector that made movie watching more enjoyable than using a small tv or laptop. Annndd... done: we paid just under $300 for a full setup.
