ViewSonic PJ558D Projector

While appealing to many, ViewSonic's just announced Cine5000 could be excessive for those who simply want to watch DVDs or deliver presentations. The company today announced a much more reasonable DLP projector, the PJ558D. Its maximum resolution is 1024x768, but unlike some other entry-level projectors, it supports 720p and 1080i signals and can scale them to fit. The input options are similarly scaled down but are well-suited to more modest home theaters and business presentations, with VGA input and output as well as RCA and S-video. Support for ViewSonic's own 802.11g wireless presentation adapter is also present for those circumstances when it becomes difficult to string cables from a laptop to a projector at the opposite end of the room. The PJ558D ships today for $999, less than half the price of its Cine5000 sibling.
