Summary: The only drawback that I have with this projector (though it may be the fact I have it so large) is that while watching movies if I change my focus from one end of the screen to the other you can see a RGB blur out of the corner of your eye. Not too bad though you get used to it.
Pros: This projector is excellent for the price. I work for Dish and work with alot of home theater systems, this projector is just as good as some of the $2000 projectors I've seen. Way better quaility than any rear projector tv I've seen. I've got mine projector onto a 120" screen and I only need it 12' away.
Summary: This projector worked beautifully when it worked. I bought the projector on Oct 21 from Amazon. About 11 months later it died - it only shows a black and white picture and flashes like a strobe light. I sent the projector to Viewsonic for service (they have a 2 year warranty but died after only 11 months). Viewsonic refused to service it. They said that they couldn't open the screws because they had rusted and they claimed the projector had a "smell" (what?????
Summary: This is a great item for a great price. We did a lot of research before selling on this one and we are now than satisfied with the purchase. Speakers are not that great but I have other speakers I attach when watching movies. 3D movies are FANTASTIC on this thing when using appropriate glasses. Awesome purchase!

Summary: This projector is absolutely amazing. Replaced a viewsonic projector that was close to 10 years old. I use this as my TV 10 and a 1/2 foot screen. You can see the picture clearly in daylight and I run eco mode so it's 30% dimmer but it's hardly noticeable. This projector is mounted on a 9 foot ceiling and at that hight is incredibly quiet, can't hear it run over the sound of what ever is on.

Summary: This is an amazing little projector and it would be 5stars in a second except for a few small quirks that are annoying. For one, it has a /mini/ usb connection in the back. You know, the type of USB plug that no one uses anymore ever. If it were either a micro or a standard USB that would be great, but it has neither. It also has the world's saddest speaker and absolutely needs to be hooked up to an external sound system.
Excerpt: We use 3 of these as classroom projectors. They are pretty bright, they have decent optics and are full HD resolution, and they can take clunky old inputs (at clunky old resolution) when one of our teachers wants to use something that's not available in full HD resolution yet. I'm not too fond of the default being set to not run the fan at shutdown, but that's easily fixed, once the menu system is hunted through.

Summary: It's a great projector to have now that I finally have a unit that works. The first projector I received initially had a very temperamental HDMI input. I was running the HDMI Monitor output from my receiver to the projector, and every time I switched the inputs on the receiver I had to power off and on the projector (which takes ~5 min). Eventually the HDMI input stopped working altogether.
