Viewsonic PJ506D

 

Light, bright and portable.

Cheap, bright, simple

Lamp life not as long as competitors, low resolution, comparatively heavy

Viewsonic’s PJ506D may not be up to the same specifications as its competitors, but it provides high-brightness projection at a low cost.

tough deal to beat for the price

 

Can't beat the price, got 'free' ceiling mount & 80" screen w/ purchase. Works better than expected in semi-light rooms. Purchased a transcoder to take advantage of VGA connection ; great deal, cant beat the price

only svga, not xga. auto-source feature drops connection momentarily when enabled and changing games on my xbox
