Viewsonic PJ458D review


A quirky little projector that needs guidance

Intuitive to set up and use

Images are harsh and uncomfortable to view

Quirks aside, this is a powerful machine that will suit office use well as home

ViewSonic - PJ458D


The ViewSonic PJ458D is a digital light projector (DLP), so you could reasonably expect it to be rather expensive. But you'd be 100 percent wrong, as it sells for significantly less than the psychological price point ...

The ViewSonic PJ458D is a smart DLP projector that delivers a decent specification at a low price. However, we found that the image was very bright and intense, making it very much a matter of personal taste. We strongly recommend that you see the...

Not Exactly Impressed


The only thing that impresses me about this projector is it's 1080i HDTV image and overall high resolution quality.

I'm not impressed with the colors on my PC at all! True color images look grainy with lots of image artifacts, and yellows are horribly represented.

ViewSonic PJ458D 1024 x 768 DLP XGA, 4.9 lbs Projector 2000 lumens 2000:1


Quality construction. Good packaging and includes everything you need to display from most sources. Very easy to install and setup

The case that comes with it is somewhat small. Still fits everything, just very tight

Great Deal


This projector has a great picture at 96" and zero zoom.

Like another reviewer said this projector has a hard time displaying some shades of yellow.

ViewSonic PJ458D


Very simple interface.. Bought this for my parents to use and if they can understand it anyone can... Well worth the price!

Great picture even in bright room... Use as a home theater projector and very happy

Fan makes a little noise but once the movie sound starts it is drowned out

ViewSonic PJ458D


This is a cost effective alternate to more exspensive Projectors, and with 2000 lumins you can produce awsome results.

Affordable, yet powerful. Used this Projector for a Fire dept training center with a limited budget, and the results were awsome. Definently worth the money. Highly recommended

The focus isn't as good on more expensive models
