ViewSonic PJD6531w

 

The ViewSonic PJD6531w is a portable, relatively bright DLP projector with good data and image quality.

3D ready. Three-year warranty. Relatively bright. Solid data and video quality. Good range of input options.

Relatively faint audio. Can’t read files from USB thumb drives.

ViewSonic PJD6531w

 

The ViewSonic PJD6531w produced a lot of light and had good color performance—after it was calibrated.

The PJD6531w is a bright projector that doesn't compromise on performance: we found that it did a good job displaying both video and still images. The images it produced were bright, and the projector had good color accuracy when calibrated. The wide...

Produced a lot of light and had good color performance… after it was calibrated

Lots of light in presentation mode; Good color accuracy once it’s calibrated

DLP rainbow effect is prominent; Fan is very noisy in most modes

ViewSonic PJD6531w 3-D Short-Throw Projector

 

If it's still too early to buy a 3-D TV, what's the deal with 3-D projectors?

Follow AskMen on Twitter. Last time you perused flat-screens and plasmas at a box store, how come you didn’t return home with a 60-inch monster to replace that microscopic 30-incher in the living room? You want 3-D, but Samsung’s new lineup of 3-D TVs...

4/5 after 2 years it broke with no explanation

 

still happy with the purchase. great HD quality on a bright 80+ inch screen. i will never go back to TV -extremely relieved that the product was under warranty as the power problem showed no signs of resolve or understanding on my part.

nice and bright. easy to set up and get working. the 16:10 hasnt caused much of any problems for me. 3d is still not understood by me although i have the glasses. all the connectors you need. the audio out port was a big deal for me. everything with...

Customer Service?

 

I have bought plenty of viewsonic products. I have been very satisfied in the past, but this experience has made me down right mad. I don't want to disparage this company but I now will.

Great projector when it works. Infact I broke the first one myself, but I bought a second one because I liked it that much ; Clear picture, plenty of features, and a very bright picture makes for the best experience I have had with a projector

Just call customer service three times to make use of a warranty. Got a person once, but then got disconnected. Tried it again with a different phone just to make sure it wasn't a bad connection. Still no go. Didn't even get a representative that time

Avoid ViewSonic

 

Two out of two units failed in some way. I can't in good faith recommend this projector to anyone. Nor will I buy another ViewSonic projector in the future. I was also annoyed by the fact that the projector blinks with a blue lite around the power...

This projector has a good number of inputs, including HDMI. The remote is nice and has a built-in laser pointer. The picture is decently bright even in a lit room

The first unit had issues with the onboard controls. The buttons on the remote worked fine, but the buttons on the unit would not respond at all or only responded sometimes. Newegg replaced the unit, no questions asked ; The second unit did not have...
