Does what I wanted and found it does more.12/20/2010
I never owned a projector but I've run some in meetings and this one has all the features I saw in the big, expensive ones. I found distance to size is not widely adjustable but the magnification came to my rescue and the unit works perfectly for showing indoor go-kart lap times on a wall so we can read them as we race. Everyone loves it and we're all going faster with the information we're getting.
Good value for money, it does everything I needed and provide enough connection to get it running in no time. This is not a high end projector but a good quality entry level projector. It comes with a VGA cable so you can connect it to your laptop but you would need other cables if you plan to connect this to your DVD player or else.
Great Product, Great Price10/21/2010
I ordered this projector for use as a home entertainment system. I was timid ordering this projector as it was hard to find a useful review. So I aim to provide one here. I have been looking for a projector suitable for home entertainment, but within the price range for a monetarily deprived college student. I had ordered a Favi Rio HD (http://www.favientertainment.com/RioHD_LED_2_Mini_Projector_p/riohd-led-2.htm) that runs approx. $300 and was extremely disappointed with the clarity. After returning the Favi unit I began searching for a similarly priced unit from a more reputable brand. I found the ViewSonic (VS) PJD5112 at about $400 and remembered seeing the VS logo on projectors throughout my grade school years. I decided to try this one out figuring it couldn't be any worse then the Favi RioHD. I searched online and found the projector for about $40/60 cheaper than other sites @ buy.com and ordered it. So, forking out an additional $60 the unit was on its way to my home. I paid for 5-9 day shipping and received it in 3 days, So I give Buy.com 5 Stars for that. After a brief set up (open, unwrap, plug in) I hooked it up to my cable, xbox and dvd player via the component cable and was more than pleased with the resolution of all three. While it is clear this is not a $1000+ unit the image quality rivals that of a $700ish unit and I'm not even projecting on a screen, which would add clarity, but projecting on a plaster wall with white paint framed by a matte black strip. I was looking for something that didn't look like it was cheap for a cheap price and that is embodied in this unit. I'm hoping to post a video review/demo of this unit online soon to help show the value of this unit. There are a few out there already but unless you speak Mandarin good luck gathering any info from them. If I muster a video I'll post an additional review with a link. Hopefully this didn't get too wordy. I am extremely pleased with the product's performance as well as its' appearance and overwhelmed by the speedy delivery and service of Buy.com.
