Started getting white pixels exactly after warranty ended

  • Summary: the 1280-6038B chip has a short lifespan and starts giving you white pixels. Would not recommend this product unless it has the new 1280-6338chip. very disappointing. the lamp is supposed to be the first thing that goes.. not the chip.

Excellent brightness, focus, and midrange throw

  • Summary: Great 720p projector that's also 1080p compatible (downscaled), I use this at events as a VJ projector and love it! It's the brighter sub-$1000 projector I know of (as is the newer model that has 1080p native @ 120hz) and it's lasted me 3 years being used 8-12 hours a day 2-3 days a week at music events (which means it travels a lot and gets used in high vibration high traffic environments).
  • Pros: EXTREMELY bright! Great focus & 120hz support @ 720p.
  • Cons: Gets rather warm and MUST be allowed to cool properly before being unplugged when powered off. Fan noise not inconsiderable but acceptable for size.

Good deal for a projector of its quality.

  • Summary: So I'm not going to flatter it or anything, talk about its specifications, or say anything about any special features it has (that's what the all the page descriptions is for). I'm just going to tell you my experience using it, as honest as it gets. Straight out of the box, the projector looked and felt pretty sturdy, with a good weight to it. However, as I removed it from the wrapping there was something loose sliding around inside.

User Review

  • Summary: Personal Experience This unit is amazingly bright and Sharp. It is 3D ready, which means that you need an added box to convert the frame sequential frames to view the 3D. Viewsonic sells one and Optoma has one too. Only the Optoma unit has an additional port that allows you to connect an if emitter. This allows you to use the 3rd party universal 3D shutter glasses that can also be set to work on most of the 3D TVs.

Decent but shoddy

Handi, Amazon

  • Summary: I had this to replace my problematic Casio XJ-A230. Mostly for gaming purpose. Overall, it works as stated but hardly meeting my expectation. My fault of not doing enough research into it. Buyer beware, as the product description may not disclose all the important keys clearly. Here's a few key things that you will need to know about this item: 1. The 16:9 is now available on the OSD menu.

By far the brightest and clearest for the price range.

  • Summary: The projector I purchased is a re-manufactured one. The picture is the best I have seen in a projector, and friends have commented so as well. Super bright, and image is crystal clear at almost 150". Have not priced replacement bulbs yet, but I will need one because we use the projector often. Best purchase I have made in a long time.

Viewsonic PJD6531w WXGA DLP Projector

PJM, Amazon
4 November 2011
  • Summary: This was the first projector I've purchased, so was a little hesitant, but the specs looked good and the reviews for the most part were positive. The projector was used primarily for office presentation use, but also for watching videos and playing ps3. For 2 weeks it worked great. Pretty pleased with the quality of projection. Then, week 3, noticed a white dot, then 2, then 20. Based on what I've read online, this is a defective DMD Chip.

Too Good to Explain - Just Buy It!

Mike, Amazon

  • Summary: Let me start by saying that I was a little concerned over some of the negative reviews about this product, but I trusted in the overwhelming number of positive ones. I purchased the projector in September for my new media room. I also purchased a ceiling mount from Amazon as well. Thanks to Amazon's great shipping, they both arrived in less than a week. In less than an hour I had the projector mounted and fully calibrated.
