Viewsonic PJ588D Large Venue projector


The Viewsonic PJ588D is a true all rounder, offering one of the brightest images in its class, and a great contrast ratio.

All in all we were quite happy with the picture and the whole package overall the only thing we could fault it on was the initial colour setup but once off 60 seconds in the menu and it was setup to our liking.

Works Great


I will not recommend buying this product for the lack of menu options. I was looking between two different projectors and went with this one (which was more expensive) and now I regret my desicion.

Not much. This is a bright projector shows up well in well lit areas.

This is an overpriced projector. I was installing this on a ceiling mount and found out that the projector cannot rotate the image. The manuel does not tell you anything its about 100 pages thick but only about 10 pages are in english, it also...
