Every thing we needed in an overhead mounted projector.
8 July 2013
Summary: We bought this projector to replace an older one and have not been disappointed with This purchase. It's used in a well lit room for Power Point presentations and occasionally a HD video presentation. Very easy to set up and use. With multiple video inputs this projector can be used for many purposes. We use HDMI and RGB/VGA inputs connected with 100 ft. cables back to the computers without any signal loss.
Summary: I have in a open room hanging on ceiling. I am now having to RMA 3rd Unit in 2 years. I started with a PJD6531W. I now an on second RMA for a PJD6553w. This has a great picture, but the unit is NOT dependable. Customer service stinks. It takes 20 plus days to get the RMA'd unit back. One time I had to wait over a month. PLus for all my trouble, this third time is the ONLY time that viewsonic has offered to help with shipping.
Summary: I've had this projector up and running since September 2012. I'm running an Xbox 360 through it for video and gaming. The image is crisp and bright even in moderate light. Setup and controls are incredibly simple. HDMI works perfectly. I could be happier with my purchase so far. I use it approximately 4 hours per day. Will update my review if/when the bulb goes. Until then, I highly recommend this product.
Summary: I bought this projector as my first projector because you couldn't beat the price that it was offered at and the reviews that it had were out of sight. There's nothing about this projector that I don't like.
Summary: Good product. Easy to install -- on screen adjustment instructions are easy to follow. The Viewsonic was used as a replacement for an older projector. My only reservation is that it did not seem to yield as bright a picture as I expected from a 3500 lumen projector.
Summary: It's ridiculous this product puts 1080p in the name as it can't project at 1080p - it only projects at 720p (down-scaling the 1080p signal as mentioned by another reviewer). Stop being sneaky and polluting my search results with your marketing games.
Summary: It's clean and works wonderfully. It displays clear pictures and once I purchased the necessary equipment to display 3D it took it over the top! Now if I can just find more 3D movies to watch.
Summary: There is some confusion as to whether this is a 1080P projector. I would call it a hybrid because it will accept a 1080P signal but it will project it as 720P. The picture looks amazing for movies, I have the Viewsonic VP3D1 so 3D is outstanding. I just received my 3D glasses as a rebate offer so I will be trying those out tonight.
