Very bright but fan runs constantly. Cost vs lumans - Exellent
2 June 2013
Summary: Very bright and a reasonable amount of options for the price. The one thing I did not like about it was the fan stays on all the time. If you buy one and want to mount it on the ceiling, you need to have a shut off switch to cut the power. Otherwise it runs day and night. I use it in a portable situation so it works for me.
Summary: My club needed a portable projector and I was designated to find one. Cost and brightness were the two most important criteria. I did a LOT of research and found this to be a best buy. Works great for our purposes and is very bright.
Summary: This projector attracted me because of the price for the brightness. I guess you get what you pay for. In long years' past I had good luck with ViewSonic products and with their warranty service but no longer. This is the worst projector I've ever owned and ViewSonic has treated me terribly about it. I've owned it for about 18 months and only put about 300 hours on it. In that time it's broken twice. The first time was at our organization's biggest conference.
Summary: AMAZON HAS THIS PRODUCT LISTED AS A 1080P CAPABLE. THIS IS NOT THE CASE. PLEASE DO RESEARCH BEFORE BUYING THIS ITEM. THIS ITEM IS 1080I CAPABLE PLEASE GO TO WWW.VIEWSONIC.COM TO SEE THE REAL SPECS FOR THIS PROJECTOR.
Not such a good deal after all - and even worse 2 years on!

Summary: I bought two of these projectors for Church auditoriums with ceiling mounts (so they're not constantly moved about), to be used to display images generated from PC. Due to a Viewsonic deal at the time, they also both came with spare bulbs, but more of that later. In terms of build quality, they seem good to handle, and the image is certainly bright. Charts and text are clear and crisp, and there is little noise from the units themselves.
