Viewsonic isn't one of the first names that spring to mind when we think of portable media players, but that may change after its MovieBook VPD550T drops this April. Complete with a 5-inch LCD touch screen (800x480-pixel resolution), 8GB of internal memory, microSD expansion, and an HDMI output capable of 1080p resolution, Viewsonic is coming out with guns blazing on this one.
But the best feature by far is the $199 price tag. Well, the price is the best feature for me at least, since I'm a bit of a cheapskate. If you're a connoisseur of video … Read more
LAS VEGAS--Last year, I reviewed two 3D monitors: the Samsung SyncMaster 2233RZ and the ViewSonic FuHzion VX2265wm. While the ViewSonic monitor delivered a 3D experience comparative with the Samsung, its overall worse performance and lack of an onscreen display meant that, pound for pound, it just wasn't worth the investment.
At CES 2010, the company announced it's trying 3D again with the debut of the 23.6-inch V3D241wm-LED monitor. This time, the monitor had a 16:9 aspect ratio with a 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution--up from the 1,680x1,050-pixel resolution of the FuHzion VX2265wm.
The V3D241wm has … Read more

LAS VEGAS--Can't have a corporate presentation or a movie-in-the-driveway night without a projector, right? Well, I guess you could, but it would probably not be worth the trouble. Luckily for us, companies continue to push projector technology forward.
Case in point, the ViewSonic PJD6531. A wide-screen 120Hz and 3D-ready DLP projector that uses BrilliantColor tech?nology to purportedly produce more vibrant colors.
According to the specs, the projector delivers 3,000 lumens with a 1,280x800 WXGA, 16:9 native wide resolution. So, given that resolution, no quite ideal for projecting Avatar on Blu-ray several months from now, which … Read more
