You needn’t squint anymore to view videos on your iPods tiny screen. The ViewSonic PJ258D ViewDock lets you dock your iPod and project its images so that a whole room can see them. The PJ258D was designed as a stylish companion to an iPod, trading in a boxy projector shape for curved surfaces and a piano-black case. At 3.9 pounds and 3.3 by 11.3 by 7.5 inches (HWD), its fairly portable, ViewDock and it comes with a soft carrying case as well as a street lumens feature-rich remote.
The PJ258D is rated at 2,000 lumens, enough to throw a good-sized image that can stand up to ambient light. Sadly, it suffers from a rainbow effect in white areas. Though seen with many single DLP- chip projectors, the effect seemed particularly bad with this one. The PJ258D did poorly on our standard-resolution TV video test, but much better when tested with DVD-resolution video. It has an excellent contrast ratio of 374:1. Even as a standalone projector, the PJ258D does a decent job. But if you own an iPod, despite flaws
such as the rainbow effect, its something special.
ViewSonic PJ258D ViewDock: $1,000
