ViewSonic PJ258D projector

 

Projector is light and compact ; IPod dock lets you project audio and video from your iPod

ViewSonic PJ258D ViewDock

 

With the iPod dock in the ViewSonic PJ258D ViewDock, you're no longer limited to the Apple iPod with Video's small screen size.

iPod dock for projecting video stored on Apple iPod. Also charges iPod. Good contrast ratio.

Poor audio quality. Extremely obvious rainbow effect from DLP chip.

ViewSonic PJ258D ViewDock Projector

 

The ViewSonic PJ258D ViewDock Projector is a budget business unit masquerading as home theatre -- but you're paying for the superfluous iPod dock.

Portable, Good for presentations, Laser pointer remote, Charges iPod

Images can appear washed out, iPod dock fairly gimmicky, Hard to adjust positioning when turned on

ViewSonic PJ258D projector

 

The ViewSonic PJ258D is a good all-around projector. Its size, weight, and feature set make it easy to move from the office to your living room and back. Unfortunately, it lacks some of the key features necessary to make it a star performer in either...

Projector is light and compact ; IPod dock lets you project audio and video from your iPod

No DVI port ; Built-in speaker sounds tinny ; Bottom Line ; Video projector with built-in iPod dock

We recommend these Projectors for their similarities to the ViewSonic PJ258D projector in features, specs, ratings, and user interest

ViewSonic PJ258D ViewDock Projector

 

Life may be full of compromises, but having to watch video on an iPod's small screen shouldn't be one of them. Not when you can easily haul this 4-pound Viewsonic front projector wherever you want and have its built-in iPod video dock spit out big...

Hooking up a DVD player to the S-video input, I played the same opening from the DVD. It was like getting a new prescription for your glasses: the image being noticeably sharper, colors crisper, and better shading and tighter detail (I could read even...

Excellent image quality, iPod dock, attractive design, good range of connections

Some rainbow effect, iPod functionality is limited
