Summary: My club needed a portable projector and I was designated to find one. Cost and brightness were the two most important criteria. I did a LOT of research and found this to be a best buy. Works great for our purposes and is very bright.
Summary: I work for a school system in GA. We've been in a debacle with these projectors for more than half the year of 2011 going into 2012. The power on these "PJD6241" as well as "PJD6240" have a failure issue.
terrible projector, even worse service from viewsonic

Summary: ViewSonic support is horrible. They don't care that their equipment is junk, they won't fix it correctly, and they refused to replace it for me with a different model or even a new or refurbished unit of the same model (even when I offered to pay extra!) as this is obviously a flawed design.
Pros: Excellent Brightness at very low cost
Cons: Fuzzy focus/poor optics: Take your pick, you can have the center of the screen in focus, the top 1/3 or the bottom 1/3, but not the whole screen. Projector has now failed for the second time after going back to ViewSonic for repair. After the first time it came back it only worked for about 2 wee...
Summary: This projector attracted me because of the price for the brightness. I guess you get what you pay for. In long years' past I had good luck with ViewSonic products and with their warranty service but no longer.
Summary: AMAZON HAS THIS PRODUCT LISTED AS A 1080P CAPABLE. THIS IS NOT THE CASE. PLEASE DO RESEARCH BEFORE BUYING THIS ITEM. THIS ITEM IS 1080I CAPABLE PLEASE GO TO WWW.VIEWSONIC.COM TO SEE THE REAL SPECS FOR THIS PROJECTOR.
Cons: projector failed after a non VGA connector was used....after warranty repair (which required numerous emails and at least three requests to get all my cables back) the projector never functioned properly...about half the time it just goes into a pout when you plug it in and you have to wait a few...
Not such a good deal after all - and even worse 2 years on!

Summary: I bought two of these projectors for Church auditoriums with ceiling mounts (so they're not constantly moved about), to be used to display images generated from PC. Due to a Viewsonic deal at the time, they also both came with spare bulbs, but more of that later.
