Customer Reviews

For home theater use OK, but for profesional use - BETTER NOTTo start, I bought this projector a bit more than a year ago, in order to give lectures.When I received it I liked the smaller size compared to similars, it is also fairly light, I carry it in a back back and when you lift it seems like it was emply.The image is great -as long as it works, although the fan sounds louder than I wish. It has a selector in the menu, for users located above 1.500 meters or so, that aparently makes the fan more efficient or silent but in my case it just did not applied.Remote control works great, although buttons are similar and numerous, so it takes a while to get used to it.I used this projector for 70 hours. One day I had to give a lecture and all the sudden it just turned off 2 minutes later. The lamp was fine, the fan was working but a red light was telling me it was overheated... so I reconnected, restarted and 2 minutes later it turned off again and again and again.I chatted with a representative of Viewsonic and after some tests I got an RMA, to send it for repair.The problem is that, after doing some research in the web, I found out that I was not along, many similar cases of failure have been reported.A very complicated situation where if you use this for home-theatre you may not be so affected as if you rely on this produt for professional lectures.Now it is in repair and I will try to update on the news.2Best item for this priceA very good projector specially considering the price. There are so many positives to get this projector that you can easily discard a few minor cons (only for the sake of mentioning, otherwise they are not negatives by any means).Positives:1) Excellent brightness: 2800 lumens is amazing. I have two large windows on either side of my screen with white blinds and the image is still very much view-able during the day (of course you can not compare with the night viewing when it becomes absolutely stunning). I have tried it while 4 (60-80W equivalent) bulbs and still the picture speaks for itself.2) Colour - Excellent colours and you can further adjust them to your taste. I don't need that as the default by itself is so stunning so 99% of people won't even think of it.3) Screen size and Image Quality - I have mounted it on the ceiling about 18 feet away and it's making about 160 inch image. I'm using one of the walls (light brown with a lot of texture) as the screen and even though I care for quality, I haven't even thought of getting a screen so you can imagine how good the quality is. I have played the Blu ray that is mighty amazing. Normal DVD is also not bad. You-tube videos also produce good quality result (more than what I initially thought). Connected to computer using VGA and the video result was again more than I expected. Again it's a 170 inch screen and I'm not talking about a 100 inch screen (which itself is quite big) but no comparison when it goes beyond 150.4) 16:10 aspect ratio - Although I don't understand why this projector comes in this aspect ratio as most of the images are in 16:9 or even smaller, however, this didn't give any problems. The image size reduces about 10 to 12 inches on a 160 inch screen and considering the size of that screen, its nothing. Some people can consider this a minor negative but not a deal breaker by any means.5) 720P - Its virtually similar to 1080P and the difference is not easily identifiable. Particularly if you're spending less than $500, then there is no need to go for a 1080P, infact I would highly encourage to go for this one rather than a $1000 worth of a 1080P. If you really need a 1080P, go for a $2000+ if you really want some difference. I have played blu ray with excellent results.6) Difference with Viewsonic PJD5134: I purchased 5134 earlier and used it for 2 days, but decided to go for 5533W for the following reasons: a) 800x1200 vs 1280x800 resolution - This is a massive difference and easily identifiable i.e. far more than a 1080P vs 720P. Technically speaking, with PJD5134, you are using 360,000 vs 870,000 pixels (2.41667 times more). The calculation assumes that a 16:9 aspect ration movie is played so with PJD 5134 (4:3 aspect ratio), you have massive black lines on top and bottom hence loosing 120,000 view-able pixels. b) 4:3 vs 16:10 aspect ratio: Massive difference as some of it I have already explained in "a" above. Secondly, to create a 100 inch viewable image of 16:9 aspect ration, you have to project about a 140inch screen approximately. This is a massive drawback. c) Screen to projector distance - To create a same size image, you have to put 5134 way back than the 5533W, so if you have a comparitively smaller room, you would loose significant amount of screen size (considering both aspect ratio and throw distance) I can provide more details however this would go on and on. The bottom line is go for 5533W (in comparison with 5134) without any second thought. Although I'm not downgrading 5134 by any means as its image is very good but considering $100 difference, 5533W significantly outplays 5134.7) 3-D Quality: I have viewed multiple 3-D movies using active glasses, I bought the cheapest 4 pairs from amazon ($22-$25) and the result is stunning. Although Avatar produced the best and overwhelming results, the others (e.g. titanic, the darkest hour etc.) produced excellent quality results.8) Sound - Well if you're using a projector and care to see quality image, then I don't think there would be a single person relying on the projector's speaker. Also, I don't think there is a single projector on the market with bamboozling sound so this is not a drawback in a sense. You just plug in a 5.1 surround system and you have to do it anyway to get an all-encompassing experience. I would advise to use a good quality sound system to get an over-whelming experience.9) Image Adjustment - Key-stone is only up&down and not side-ways. It's only a minor limitation, however you would anyway put the projector in the middle of the room so you only need the up&down feature and that's all you need. Secondly, the image adjustment (zoom) is not a massive feature with this projector, but once you adjust the projector, this feature goes out of the equation, however you need to consider that and I suggest using projectorcalculator.com to calculate the distance and size of the screen etc.10) Remote features: Very intuitive and easy to use, so nothing worth mentioning here.11) HDMI cable: I've used both 25 feet and 50 feet HDMI cables with stunning results and no difference at all. The bottom line is that use an HDMI cable ($15) and you would be perfect. Don't go for a massively expensive cables.12) Quiet: This is a very quiet projector and if it's hanging on the ceiling, I don't think you would hear any noise, even during the quiet parts of a movie.13) Heating - So far, I have not found it to be overly heating despite of a very powerful 2800 lumens bulb.14) Rainbow effect - I haven't found any, not sure if anyone have found.Bottomline - Just do the basics right and this is the projector to go for, perhaps the best in this price range as of today.Hope this review is helpful and informative.Best regards,A.5Hallelujah!!! It's Awesome galore!!!Hallelujah!! For $400 Television viewing changed forever for me. Got this projector, connected it to my cable box, it's good if you have dish or Direct TV, because the signals are digital... Or a better yet if you have access to ATSC digital signals you are are never gonna buy a large flat-screen TV ever in your life. This projector is the perfect home theater system for movies or even watching regular TV. Colors are crisp, accurate, oh watching movies with this projector? Outstanding!!! I connected this projector to my computer. When I built my computer, i installed a digital TV tuner card which you can get from Amazon for about 50 bucks. Got a digital TV antenna for over the air ATSC HD TV channels, my oh my... You will see the potential of this projector. Watching TV shows both local and TV in general is awesome. I don't know what else to say but all I can say is give it a try... I think that is the best way to experience what I'm trying to let you know. After seeing TV using this projector and watching Hulu and Netflix and YouTube using this projector, I really wondered why anyone would spend $1000+ on 80 inch flat-screen TVs. You don't need to do that again. Buy this projector, if your cable box is digital like dish or direct TV or if you have a TV tuner card in your computer, brother, friends, family.... You will see another dimension of TV like you never have before. You don't need to go to the movies anymore. Now if you have regular cable, it will still work but the picture quality will be as good as what the compression ratio of your TV box is. Like Comcast ugh! If you have Frontier and your TV bov has a HDMI connector, then you are in good hands. You will need a splitter though to channel HD audio to your speakers system. Read along and see how I set up mine. For me I use this both for watching Direct TV on my computer for Hulu and YouTube videos and some 120 HD channels on Direct TV. My Direct TV box is connected to my TV tuner card in my computer, then I connect a HDMI cable from my computer to the projector. HDMI cable carries both HD audio and digital video signals. Btw HDMI cable connects to my graphics card in my computer (AMD HD 6770) Any graphics card Nvidia or AMD will work. I built my computer 4 years ago so my card is a HD 6700 series with awesome sound. Yea processor is a six core AMD Phenom II X6 1090T. It's a workhorse of a machine. I love it!! For those of you who have this processor know what I'm talking about especially with multi tasking... but i digress... Sound out put goes through to this projector via the HDMI cable... then I connect RCA audio cable (red and white) on one end to my receiver and the other end of the RCA cable is a 3.5mm jack which connects to the projector via the audio out connector on the back of the projector. That is how I get HD sound from my computer to the receiver via the projector. I use Windows Media Center for TV. Im able to record TV shows that I miss on my hard drive. FIFA world cup etc! Oh and watching world cup is stupendous with this projector!! Yes I use Windows 7 64 bit(Long live Windows 7!!! ) which has Windows media center. Im able to watch TV while surfing Internet... awesome!! I project on my regular white living room wall. Projected content is about 120 inches huge on the wall. You don't need an 80 inch TV when you have this projector and especially for the price... Oh Ribabosha!!! It's Christmas!!... really. For those of you still using Comcast and regular non HD cable, you can still connect your cable box to the projector using the yellow audio cable one end to the back of the projector and the other end to the back of the cable box. Since Comcast compress their signal like it is Halloween..., picture quality will be horrible. Im being honest. The projector is as innocent as just projecting the quality of signal you are feeding to it. If you feed HD signals... you get to realize the full potential of this projector. If you feed it analog signals or over compressed signals that's what you will get to project... Horrible noisy picture quality. It's ugly don't even try... Buy a computer TV tuner card instead and install it in your computer if you know what you are doing.. It's easy or contact me, I can help you out. However, If you have HD TV like Dish, Frontier or Direct TV, you are set. I'm West coast so I don't know what you have out there in terms of TV providers in the middle of the lands and the East Coast but I've heard of Cox and other cable companies like AT&T or Jessica... etc so I don't know which is digital or not. Anyway just get this projector and see for yourself what im talking about. Enough said! Ribabosha!!!5Saved so much money I installed a bar in my home theatre.Are you kidding me? I went looking for an HD projector for the Man Cave. I found some nice ones for $2000-$3000 dollars. Then I stumbled in the low $400's. You would be hard pressed to tell the difference in picture quality unless you viewed an HD bluray side by side, and even then, the brightness of this projector might even sway you to choose this one. This thing is small, quiet, easy to mount, easy to setup, and works GREAT! I cannot get over how good the picture is even at a 120" I projected on a wall, and it looked just fine. Since this is installed in my Man Cave/Game Room/ Bar, I bought some grey screen material from Amazon seller Carl's Place. That was a definite improvement when the sun is out or the lights are on. I cannot see how you can go wrong with this projector. I bought an HDMI Splitter and connected a Sony PS3 (plays 3D Blu Ray, and Streams Netflix in 3D), a WD TV Live (Plays Amazon Prime, and my U Verse Box. This projector only has one HDMI input, but realistically, I wasn't going to run three 35ft HDMI cables to this unit anyhow when I could get the splitter (which works great with 3D). Also, as other have mentioned, the audio is weak (it was designed for presentations, not 5.1 home cinema). I just connected my devices to a sound system and now I have movie audio the way it is supposed to be. Anyone expecting cinema quality audio from the projector itself is bound to be disappointed regardless of the price. I saved enough money by buying this projector that I installed an entire bar with the $2000 I saved (I budgeted $2500 for a projector system). We have had hours of enjoyment from this thing. I bought the Sainsonic 3D glasses and they work great with this projector and the price is hard to beat.5I have it projecting a 16' image on a wall that's actually painted a light tan and it looks fantastic. There was one item to notNothing new to add in terms of image quality. I have it projecting a 16' image on a wall that's actually painted a light tan and it looks fantastic.The only drawbacks that I would mention, but are easy to overcome:- Only 1 HDMI in. If you're running through a surround sound receiver with HDMI in and out, then this doesn't matter, but if not, you can do what I did and buy a HDMI switcher for $30.- Only (1) 3.5mm audio out port. I like to run audio straight out from the projector so I don't have to make multiple connections from our sound bar to the individual components (DVD, Xbox, Cable, etc). If you're going to do that just know that the only option is a 3.5mm analog output from the projector.* There was one item to note that caught me off guard being new to home projectors. There's clearly an assumption is that if you have it overhead, it's going to be on a ceiling mount and when you have the projector just sitting on something it's going to be on a table which throws the image not only out, but up.In my case, I had it on a shelf that was 2' from the ceiling and when I put it on the shelf it projected up onto the ceiling unless I raised the back really high. I'm probably just going to buy a ceiling mount and switch it around.5WOW, WOW AND WOWWow Wow and Wow, 10 stars and than some. I purchased this ViewSonic PJD5533W WXGA Portable WXGA Projector $449.99 after scouring many reviews and took the chance and i could not be more happier, i paired this with Homegear 120" HD Motorized 16:9 Projector Screen W/ Remote Control $109.99 and it is like a heaven in my house, lol i am trying to find something i do not like about my setup and it is difficult, the screen works like magic, no wrinkles quiet motor and everything i have watched so far is exceptional. movies, sports, average television show, i am using the HDMI that is routed from my dish satellite box to my yamaha receiver that receives my HDMI signal and then feeds it to the projector, i also have my blue ray player hooked up to my yamaha receiver as well. i do not have to worry about the sound output from projector because everything (video and sound ) dish network and blue ray player is coming from my 600 total watts of receiver power, this is the best way to set this projector up. if you do not have a receiver that accepts hdmi signals to output to this projector then you are truly missing out. this is by far for what you have to pay to receive 1200x800 native picture a awesome deal. yes 1200x800 is a far cry from anything lower in resolution, i have used this during the day and the picture is just amazing, very bright, although i do use the eco mode which darkens the picture and makes it look superb and also saves hours on the bulb life, If you are serious about your video and audio like me go ahead and get this projector ViewSonic PJD5533W WXGA Portable WXGA Projector you will be smiling from head to toe it is truly a amazing experience. I had this at my doorstep in 2 days along with projector screen that also came fed ex, thank you Amazon for this wonderful experience, time to go and watch a movie and make some popcorn,5This is the way to go. Trust me.So, I toyed around with the idea of purchasing a projector for some time now, and after being cooped up inside all winter, I finally decided that a projector would be worth it if it meant I could watch movies outside on beautiful summer nights. That being said, I didn't want to spend a ton of money on one, especially since I wasn't sure how easy it would be to use, how much I would use it, and ultimately if it would be worth it.Thus started my internet search.I purchased a projector from a retail store, but before opening it, I stumbled upon this unit on Amazon. With a large number of reviews and a high rating, it really caught my eye. After pulling the trigger...I couldn't be happier. This is AMAZING projector given the price. Yes yes, it isn't 1080p, but who freakin' cares. This baby produces a high definition (720p) image that is bright, crisp, and HUGE. I took it outside for the first time and projected a movie right onto the siding (didn't even use a sheet) and it looked awesome. The image was larger than a king size sheet and was very crisp.If you are looking for a projector on a budget, but still want a quality item...look no further. In addition, do yourself a favor and get a manufactured refurbished unit and save another $150!! Did you know that refurbished units come with BRAND NEW bulbs, which is the component that gets the most wear? It's a great savings and you get a pristine unit that is really no different from a brand new model...except you're spending less money...which is always a good thing.I hope you give this item a try and enjoy yourself some home theater (or outdoor theater) goodness!5Great product So glad I bought it!So I just received this projector last night, and as a product its awesome. I turned it on and it shot a 132" screen at about 10.5 to 11 feet and its crystal clear with beautiful color, honestly nicer than my Insignia 1080p LED 240hz TV. All of my lights were on (ceiling fan and a halogen lamp) in the room and when the projector turned itself off (I'll get to that part) the room all the sudden looked dark... In other words this project is BRIGHT! The picture (when it worked) was incredible and I was so excited that I bought this product... for 60 seconds until it shut down... So I thought, maybe a menu option that puts it to sleep when it doesn't have a source and for some reason its not recognizing my computer as a source. That's when I noticed the temp light was on... and the fan(s) were going nuts. Tried it a couple more times same thing, called Viewsonic and they said it could be a thermostat or fan. But, I was excited to have this projector so I start doing some investigating to find out that, the cooling fan that blows directly into the lamp isn't turning on so its overheating. SAD DAY! so, now I wait two weeks for it to be fixed.I gave it 5 stars because this is a product review, and I bought this refurbished from a second seller through amazon. The seller was very helpful in getting the RMA set up. So I don't mind, and the product worked excellent, while it worked... I would recommend this projector to ANYONE honestly, its so bright with such a beautiful picture and since its a short throw projector you don't have to have a large room to get a big screen. But, take this review lightly since I have only used it like 3 times for 60 seconds at a time.UPDATE:Sent back to Viewsonic who were very helpful and great to work with in the RMA process, sent it to them on December the 6th and I just received it back. They said about a 14 day turn around and they got it back in 12. Everything works great and I love my new projector. Don't hesitate to buy (even refurbished) Viewsonic stuck by their warranty and now I have a great project!5Its my new 55" TVI positioned the projector 94" from my screen (I'm not mounting it in the ceiling). The very sharp DVD picture measured 48" wide by 27" high and 55" diagonally.I had very specific requirements for my projector to match my current peripherals. My DVD recorder uses RCA jacks and S-video. My computers have converter cables that mate with either VGA or HDMI. My sound system uses AV cables. I have 4:3, 16:9, 480x720, and 1920x1080 videos.After compiling a list of projectors that are compatible, I saw that Viewsonic had several projectors, the longest warranty, most satisfaction, and lowest price. The more expensive models above the 5533 have the same case, connections, and only an additional feature. At $419 I got my top pick.I felt the projector after 2 hours of use and found it just warm. From other reviews I expected a very hot projector like my slide projector. Also, all the various sized videos displayed equally sharp. I did not use the speaker because my sound system hooked right up to the ports.5Very Good Choice for Basic Home TheatreAs the centerpiece of a small windowless room home theater, this projector is a fine choice. It is connected via HDMI cable (not provided) to a Panasonic Blu-Ray 3D Player, Sharp Sound Bar, Polk Audio 10 in. subwoofer and an Elite 80 in.16:9 pull down screen. The total cost for this entire home theater was just under $1,000, all purchased on Amazon. The projector is set up only 10 feet from the screen, which results in a very sharp 70 in display utilizing the projector's native16:10 widescreen aspect ratio at 720p resolution. I have watched 2 movies so far, both a regular Blu-Ray and a 3D movie (3D glasses NOT provided) with Samsung active shutter 3D glasses and the projector has exceeded my expectations. PC Mag and CNET both downgrade this projector for the "rainbow" effect common among low cost DLP projectors, but even while looking for rainbows, I did not experience any problems with either movie. The projector's default settings are okay, but if you go into the menu after your first movie starts and adjust the color and keystone settings manually to your preference, you can dramatically improve the already good picture even more. My only two criticisms are minor: The speaker is very weak, even for a projector, so you will require amplified speakers, a sound bar or headphones if you plan on watching movies, and unlike Epson, ViewSonic does NOT include either an HDMI, DVI or audio cable, but just a VGA cable, which seems both a little cheap and antiquated.4Great Projector for the money and great 3D This projector has a quality picture and does a great job with 3D movies. For the money you can't get a 3D TV with this size picture and quality anywhere I know of. The projector does seem to have a problem syncing with my blue ray player when using a 25 ft cord but works great with the supplied cord. Focus controls are kind of useless but I just set them and leave them anyways. Works well with HDMI and VGA connections. Seemed a little choppy with VGA but that may have had something to do with the cord length as well. Sound is ok but I would recommend using a home theatre sound system to go with the quality picture. Can be see even with lights on in the room but the picture is obviously better the darker the room is. Mounted this from the ceiling and after making some picture adjustments got a perfect projection when mounted above and centered over the projection area.I would recommend "Projector-Gear Projector Ceiling Mount for VIEWSONIC PJD5533w " sold on Amazon for an made to fit mounting bracket even though it was a little pricier than others its like OEM parts. Overall this is a great value for the money.Pros:Is a great quality projector.Smaller than most projectorsLighter than most projectorsNot as hot as other projectorsNice WarrantyQuiet3D output excellentWorks well when mounted from a ceilingCons:Only 1 HDMI Port- bought a HDMI switch as a work-aroundSpeaker not the bestPicture choppy with longer cords (25 ft) 5

I have two large windows on either side of my screen with white blinds and the image is still very much view-able during the day (of course you can not compare with the night viewing when it becomes absolutely stunning).

I'm using one of the walls (light brown with a lot of texture) as the screen and even though I care for quality, I haven't even thought of getting a screen so you can imagine how good the quality is.

The image size reduces about 10 to 12 inches on a 160 inch screen and considering the size of that screen, its nothing. Some people can consider this a minor negative but not a deal breaker by any means.5) 720P - Its virtually similar to 1080P and the difference is not easily identifiable. Particularly if you're spending less than $500, then there is no need to go for a 1080P, infact I would highly encourage to go for this one rather than a $1000 worth of a 1080P. If you really need a 1080P, go for a $2000+ if you really want some difference. I have played blu ray with excellent results.6) Difference with Viewsonic PJD5134: I purchased 5134 earlier and used it for 2 days, but decided to go for 5533W for the following reasons: a) 800x1200 vs 1280x800 resolution - This is a massive difference and easily identifiable i.e. far more than a 1080P vs 720P. Technically speaking, with PJD5134, you are using 360,000 vs 870,000 pixels (2.41667 times more). The calculation assumes that a 16:9 aspect ration movie is played so with PJD 5134 (4:3 aspect ratio), you have massive black lines on top and bottom hence loosing 120,000 view-able pixels. b) 4:3 vs 16:10 aspect ratio: Massive difference as some of it I have already explained in "a" above. Secondly, to create a 100 inch viewable image of 16:9 aspect ration, you have to project about a 140inch screen approximately. This is a massive drawback. c) Screen to projector distance - To create a same size image, you have to put 5134 way back than the 5533W, so if you have a comparitively smaller room, you would loose significant amount of screen size (considering both aspect ratio and throw distance) I can provide more details however this would go on and on. The bottom line is go for 5533W (in comparison with 5134) without any second thought. Although I'm not downgrading 5134 by any means as its image is very good but considering $100 difference, 5533W significantly outplays 5134.7) 3-D Quality: I have viewed multiple 3-D movies using active glasses, I bought the cheapest 4 pairs from amazon ($22-$25) and the result is stunning. Although Avatar produced the best and overwhelming results, the others (e.g. titanic, the darkest hour etc.) produced excellent quality results.8) Sound - Well if you're using a projector and care to see quality image, then I don't think there would be a single person relying on the projector's speaker. Also, I don't think there is a single projector on the market with bamboozling sound so this is not a drawback in a sense. You just plug in a 5.1 surround system and you have to do it anyway to get an all-encompassing experience. I would advise to use a good quality sound system to get an over-whelming experience.9) Image Adjustment - Key-stone is only up&down and not side-ways. It's only a minor limitation, however you would anyway put the projector in the middle of the room so you only need the up&down feature and that's all you need. Secondly, the image adjustment (zoom) is not a massive feature with this projector, but once you adjust the projector, this feature goes out of the equation, however you need to consider that and I suggest using projectorcalculator.com to calculate the distance and size of the screen etc.10) Remote features: Very intuitive and easy to use, so nothing worth mentioning here.11) HDMI cable: I've used both 25 feet and 50 feet HDMI cables with stunning results and no difference at all. The bottom line is that use an HDMI cable ($15) and you would be perfect. Don't go for a massively expensive cables.12) Quiet: This is a very quiet projector and if it's hanging on the ceiling, I don't think you would hear any noise, even during the quiet parts of a movie.13) Heating - So far, I have not found it to be overly heating despite of a very powerful 2800 lumens bulb.14) Rainbow effect - I haven't found any, not sure if anyone have found.Bottomline - Just do the basics right and this is the projector to go for, perhaps the best in this price range as of today.Hope this review is helpful and informative.Best regards,A.5Hallelujah!!! It's Awesome galore!!!Hallelujah!! For $400 Television viewing changed forever for me. Got this projector, connected it to my cable box, it's good if you have dish or Direct TV, because the signals are digital... Or a better yet if you have access to ATSC digital signals you are are never gonna buy a large flat-screen TV ever in your life. This projector is the perfect home theater system for movies or even watching regular TV. Colors are crisp, accurate, oh watching movies with this projector? Outstanding!!! I connected this projector to my computer. When I built my computer, i installed a digital TV tuner card which you can get from Amazon for about 50 bucks. Got a digital TV antenna for over the air ATSC HD TV channels, my oh my... You will see the potential of this projector. Watching TV shows both local and TV in general is awesome. I don't know what else to say but all I can say is give it a try... I think that is the best way to experience what I'm trying to let you know. After seeing TV using this projector and watching Hulu and Netflix and YouTube using this projector, I really wondered why anyone would spend $1000+ on 80 inch flat-screen TVs. You don't need to do that again. Buy this projector, if your cable box is digital like dish or direct TV or if you have a TV tuner card in your computer, brother, friends, family.... You will see another dimension of TV like you never have before. You don't need to go to the movies anymore. Now if you have regular cable, it will still work but the picture quality will be as good as what the compression ratio of your TV box is. Like Comcast ugh! If you have Frontier and your TV bov has a HDMI connector, then you are in good hands. You will need a splitter though to channel HD audio to your speakers system. Read along and see how I set up mine. For me I use this both for watching Direct TV on my computer for Hulu and YouTube videos and some 120 HD channels on Direct TV. My Direct TV box is connected to my TV tuner card in my computer, then I connect a HDMI cable from my computer to the projector. HDMI cable carries both HD audio and digital video signals. Btw HDMI cable connects to my graphics card in my computer (AMD HD 6770) Any graphics card Nvidia or AMD will work. I built my computer 4 years ago so my card is a HD 6700 series with awesome sound. Yea processor is a six core AMD Phenom II X6 1090T. It's a workhorse of a machine. I love it!! For those of you who have this processor know what I'm talking about especially with multi tasking... but i digress... Sound out put goes through to this projector via the HDMI cable... then I connect RCA audio cable (red and white) on one end to my receiver and the other end of the RCA cable is a 3.5mm jack which connects to the projector via the audio out connector on the back of the projector. That is how I get HD sound from my computer to the receiver via the projector. I use Windows Media Center for TV. Im able to record TV shows that I miss on my hard drive. FIFA world cup etc! Oh and watching world cup is stupendous with this projector!! Yes I use Windows 7 64 bit(Long live Windows 7!!! ) which has Windows media center. Im able to watch TV while surfing Internet... awesome!! I project on my regular white living room wall. Projected content is about 120 inches huge on the wall. You don't need an 80 inch TV when you have this projector and especially for the price... Oh Ribabosha!!! It's Christmas!!... really. For those of you still using Comcast and regular non HD cable, you can still connect your cable box to the projector using the yellow audio cable one end to the back of the projector and the other end to the back of the cable box. Since Comcast compress their signal like it is Halloween..., picture quality will be horrible. Im being honest. The projector is as innocent as just projecting the quality of signal you are feeding to it. If you feed HD signals... you get to realize the full potential of this projector. If you feed it analog signals or over compressed signals that's what you will get to project... Horrible noisy picture quality. It's ugly don't even try... Buy a computer TV tuner card instead and install it in your computer if you know what you are doing.. It's easy or contact me, I can help you out. However, If you have HD TV like Dish, Frontier or Direct TV, you are set. I'm West coast so I don't know what you have out there in terms of TV providers in the middle of the lands and the East Coast but I've heard of Cox and other cable companies like AT&T or Jessica... etc so I don't know which is digital or not. Anyway just get this projector and see for yourself what im talking about. Enough said! Ribabosha!!!5Saved so much money I installed a bar in my home theatre.Are you kidding me? I went looking for an HD projector for the Man Cave. I found some nice ones for $2000-$3000 dollars. Then I stumbled in the low $400's. You would be hard pressed to tell the difference in picture quality unless you viewed an HD bluray side by side, and even then, the brightness of this projector might even sway you to choose this one. This thing is small, quiet, easy to mount, easy to setup, and works GREAT! I cannot get over how good the picture is even at a 120" I projected on a wall, and it looked just fine. Since this is installed in my Man Cave/Game Room/ Bar, I bought some grey screen material from Amazon seller Carl's Place. That was a definite improvement when the sun is out or the lights are on. I cannot see how you can go wrong with this projector. I bought an HDMI Splitter and connected a Sony PS3 (plays 3D Blu Ray, and Streams Netflix in 3D), a WD TV Live (Plays Amazon Prime, and my U Verse Box. This projector only has one HDMI input, but realistically, I wasn't going to run three 35ft HDMI cables to this unit anyhow when I could get the splitter (which works great with 3D). Also, as other have mentioned, the audio is weak (it was designed for presentations, not 5.1 home cinema). I just connected my devices to a sound system and now I have movie audio the way it is supposed to be. Anyone expecting cinema quality audio from the projector itself is bound to be disappointed regardless of the price. I saved enough money by buying this projector that I installed an entire bar with the $2000 I saved (I budgeted $2500 for a projector system). We have had hours of enjoyment from this thing. I bought the Sainsonic 3D glasses and they work great with this projector and the price is hard to beat.5I have it projecting a 16' image on a wall that's actually painted a light tan and it looks fantastic. There was one item to notNothing new to add in terms of image quality. I have it projecting a 16' image on a wall that's actually painted a light tan and it looks fantastic.The only drawbacks that I would mention, but are easy to overcome:- Only 1 HDMI in. If you're running through a surround sound receiver with HDMI in and out, then this doesn't matter, but if not, you can do what I did and buy a HDMI switcher for $30.- Only (1) 3.5mm audio out port. I like to run audio straight out from the projector so I don't have to make multiple connections from our sound bar to the individual components (DVD, Xbox, Cable, etc). If you're going to do that just know that the only option is a 3.5mm analog output from the projector.* There was one item to note that caught me off guard being new to home projectors. There's clearly an assumption is that if you have it overhead, it's going to be on a ceiling mount and when you have the projector just sitting on something it's going to be on a table which throws the image not only out, but up.In my case, I had it on a shelf that was 2' from the ceiling and when I put it on the shelf it projected up onto the ceiling unless I raised the back really high. I'm probably just going to buy a ceiling mount and switch it around.5WOW, WOW AND WOWWow Wow and Wow, 10 stars and than some. I purchased this ViewSonic PJD5533W WXGA Portable WXGA Projector $449.99 after scouring many reviews and took the chance and i could not be more happier, i paired this with Homegear 120" HD Motorized 16:9 Projector Screen W/ Remote Control $109.99 and it is like a heaven in my house, lol i am trying to find something i do not like about my setup and it is difficult, the screen works like magic, no wrinkles quiet motor and everything i have watched so far is exceptional. movies, sports, average television show, i am using the HDMI that is routed from my dish satellite box to my yamaha receiver that receives my HDMI signal and then feeds it to the projector, i also have my blue ray player hooked up to my yamaha receiver as well. i do not have to worry about the sound output from projector because everything (video and sound ) dish network and blue ray player is coming from my 600 total watts of receiver power, this is the best way to set this projector up. if you do not have a receiver that accepts hdmi signals to output to this projector then you are truly missing out. this is by far for what you have to pay to receive 1200x800 native picture a awesome deal. yes 1200x800 is a far cry from anything lower in resolution, i have used this during the day and the picture is just amazing, very bright, although i do use the eco mode which darkens the picture and makes it look superb and also saves hours on the bulb life, If you are serious about your video and audio like me go ahead and get this projector ViewSonic PJD5533W WXGA Portable WXGA Projector you will be smiling from head to toe it is truly a amazing experience. I had this at my doorstep in 2 days along with projector screen that also came fed ex, thank you Amazon for this wonderful experience, time to go and watch a movie and make some popcorn,5This is the way to go. Trust me.So, I toyed around with the idea of purchasing a projector for some time now, and after being cooped up inside all winter, I finally decided that a projector would be worth it if it meant I could watch movies outside on beautiful summer nights. That being said, I didn't want to spend a ton of money on one, especially since I wasn't sure how easy it would be to use, how much I would use it, and ultimately if it would be worth it.Thus started my internet search.I purchased a projector from a retail store, but before opening it, I stumbled upon this unit on Amazon. With a large number of reviews and a high rating, it really caught my eye. After pulling the trigger...I couldn't be happier. This is AMAZING projector given the price. Yes yes, it isn't 1080p, but who freakin' cares. This baby produces a high definition (720p) image that is bright, crisp, and HUGE. I took it outside for the first time and projected a movie right onto the siding (didn't even use a sheet) and it looked awesome. The image was larger than a king size sheet and was very crisp.If you are looking for a projector on a budget, but still want a quality item...look no further. In addition, do yourself a favor and get a manufactured refurbished unit and save another $150!! Did you know that refurbished units come with BRAND NEW bulbs, which is the component that gets the most wear? It's a great savings and you get a pristine unit that is really no different from a brand new model...except you're spending less money...which is always a good thing.I hope you give this item a try and enjoy yourself some home theater (or outdoor theater) goodness!5Great product So glad I bought it!So I just received this projector last night, and as a product its awesome. I turned it on and it shot a 132" screen at about 10.5 to 11 feet and its crystal clear with beautiful color, honestly nicer than my Insignia 1080p LED 240hz TV. All of my lights were on (ceiling fan and a halogen lamp) in the room and when the projector turned itself off (I'll get to that part) the room all the sudden looked dark... In other words this project is BRIGHT! The picture (when it worked) was incredible and I was so excited that I bought this product... for 60 seconds until it shut down... So I thought, maybe a menu option that puts it to sleep when it doesn't have a source and for some reason its not recognizing my computer as a source. That's when I noticed the temp light was on... and the fan(s) were going nuts. Tried it a couple more times same thing, called Viewsonic and they said it could be a thermostat or fan. But, I was excited to have this projector so I start doing some investigating to find out that, the cooling fan that blows directly into the lamp isn't turning on so its overheating. SAD DAY! so, now I wait two weeks for it to be fixed.I gave it 5 stars because this is a product review, and I bought this refurbished from a second seller through amazon. The seller was very helpful in getting the RMA set up. So I don't mind, and the product worked excellent, while it worked... I would recommend this projector to ANYONE honestly, its so bright with such a beautiful picture and since its a short throw projector you don't have to have a large room to get a big screen. But, take this review lightly since I have only used it like 3 times for 60 seconds at a time.UPDATE:Sent back to Viewsonic who were very helpful and great to work with in the RMA process, sent it to them on December the 6th and I just received it back. They said about a 14 day turn around and they got it back in 12. Everything works great and I love my new projector. Don't hesitate to buy (even refurbished) Viewsonic stuck by their warranty and now I have a great project!5Its my new 55" TVI positioned the projector 94" from my screen (I'm not mounting it in the ceiling). The very sharp DVD picture measured 48" wide by 27" high and 55" diagonally.I had very specific requirements for my projector to match my current peripherals. My DVD recorder uses RCA jacks and S-video. My computers have converter cables that mate with either VGA or HDMI. My sound system uses AV cables. I have 4:3, 16:9, 480x720, and 1920x1080 videos.After compiling a list of projectors that are compatible, I saw that Viewsonic had several projectors, the longest warranty, most satisfaction, and lowest price. The more expensive models above the 5533 have the same case, connections, and only an additional feature. At $419 I got my top pick.I felt the projector after 2 hours of use and found it just warm. From other reviews I expected a very hot projector like my slide projector. Also, all the various sized videos displayed equally sharp. I did not use the speaker because my sound system hooked right up to the ports.5Very Good Choice for Basic Home TheatreAs the centerpiece of a small windowless room home theater, this projector is a fine choice. It is connected via HDMI cable (not provided) to a Panasonic Blu-Ray 3D Player, Sharp Sound Bar, Polk Audio 10 in. subwoofer and an Elite 80 in.16:9 pull down screen. The total cost for this entire home theater was just under $1,000, all purchased on Amazon. The projector is set up only 10 feet from the screen, which results in a very sharp 70 in display utilizing the projector's native16:10 widescreen aspect ratio at 720p resolution. I have watched 2 movies so far, both a regular Blu-Ray and a 3D movie (3D glasses NOT provided) with Samsung active shutter 3D glasses and the projector has exceeded my expectations. PC Mag and CNET both downgrade this projector for the "rainbow" effect common among low cost DLP projectors, but even while looking for rainbows, I did not experience any problems with either movie. The projector's default settings are okay, but if you go into the menu after your first movie starts and adjust the color and keystone settings manually to your preference, you can dramatically improve the already good picture even more. My only two criticisms are minor: The speaker is very weak, even for a projector, so you will require amplified speakers, a sound bar or headphones if you plan on watching movies, and unlike Epson, ViewSonic does NOT include either an HDMI, DVI or audio cable, but just a VGA cable, which seems both a little cheap and antiquated.4Great Projector for the money and great 3D This projector has a quality picture and does a great job with 3D movies. For the money you can't get a 3D TV with this size picture and quality anywhere I know of. The projector does seem to have a problem syncing with my blue ray player when using a 25 ft cord but works great with the supplied cord. Focus controls are kind of useless but I just set them and leave them anyways. Works well with HDMI and VGA connections. Seemed a little choppy with VGA but that may have had something to do with the cord length as well. Sound is ok but I would recommend using a home theatre sound system to go with the quality picture. Can be see even with lights on in the room but the picture is obviously better the darker the room is. Mounted this from the ceiling and after making some picture adjustments got a perfect projection when mounted above and centered over the projection area.I would recommend "Projector-Gear Projector Ceiling Mount for VIEWSONIC PJD5533w " sold on Amazon for an made to fit mounting bracket even though it was a little pricier than others its like OEM parts. Overall this is a great value for the money.Pros:Is a great quality projector.Smaller than most projectorsLighter than most projectorsNot as hot as other projectorsNice WarrantyQuiet3D output excellentWorks well when mounted from a ceilingCons:Only 1 HDMI Port- bought a HDMI switch as a work-aroundSpeaker not the bestPicture choppy with longer cords (25 ft) 5
