Not Durable!

gardneay, Amazon
28 January 2015
  • Summary: Great picture, but have had to send unit back to ViewSonic 3 times since purchase in 2010. Now the HDMI port is out and it is no longer under warranty. For the price, sending the item back 3 times while under warranty and now having a 4th issue in less that 5 years seems laughable. Spoke with customer support and for a minimum charge of $180 and my footing the bill for postage both ways they will look at it.

Perfect after 2-3 years.

  • Summary: After 2-3 years it still keeps on going, perfectly. Tested for some time and some very humid weather. I have been projecting with HMDI in primarily and having audio out to a set of speaker. Used it mostly in our outdoors terrace.

My experience

Moo, Amazon
30 November 2013
  • Summary: I bought this projector some time ago. First, it is a decent projector although I am sensitive to the rainbow effect, I have learned to ignore it after a couple of days of watching. I gamed and watched various movies on it with ambient light. The picture is much better is a dark room. Second, the lack of a spare lamp being available to purchase is disturbing.

Started getting white pixels exactly after warranty ended

Martin, Amazon

  • Summary: the 1280-6038B chip has a short lifespan and starts giving you white pixels. Would not recommend this product unless it has the new 1280-6338chip. very disappointing. the lamp is supposed to be the first thing that goes.. not the chip.

Excellent brightness, focus, and midrange throw

  • Summary: Great 720p projector that's also 1080p compatible (downscaled), I use this at events as a VJ projector and love it! It's the brighter sub-$1000 projector I know of (as is the newer model that has 1080p native @ 120hz) and it's lasted me 3 years being used 8-12 hours a day 2-3 days a week at music events (which means it travels a lot and gets used in high vibration high traffic environments).
  • Pros: EXTREMELY bright! Great focus & 120hz support @ 720p.
  • Cons: Gets rather warm and MUST be allowed to cool properly before being unplugged when powered off. Fan noise not inconsiderable but acceptable for size.

Good deal for a projector of its quality.

iceeblizzard, Amazon

  • Summary: So I'm not going to flatter it or anything, talk about its specifications, or say anything about any special features it has (that's what the all the page descriptions is for). I'm just going to tell you my experience using it, as honest as it gets. Straight out of the box, the projector looked and felt pretty sturdy, with a good weight to it. However, as I removed it from the wrapping there was something loose sliding around inside.

User Review

Rik B, Projector Central

  • Summary: Personal Experience This unit is amazingly bright and Sharp. It is 3D ready, which means that you need an added box to convert the frame sequential frames to view the 3D. Viewsonic sells one and Optoma has one too. Only the Optoma unit has an additional port that allows you to connect an if emitter. This allows you to use the 3rd party universal 3D shutter glasses that can also be set to work on most of the 3D TVs.
