Summary: It a great projector. It's super bright and has the longest bulb life and warranty on the market. The color is a little off right out of the box but you can go to http://www.projectorreviews.com/viewsonic/pro8200/calibration.php for the perfect color/contrast/brightness settings. My third projector and I would defiantly recommend it.
Summary: My son bought the ViewSonic Pro8200 Projector and asked me to help him do the ceiling mount. I was skeptical at first because of the price. The install was clean and easy, and when he first fired up the projector, I was amazed! The picture quality of DLP is unbelievable! I didn't waste any time. Went directly to Amazon and bought one for myself. I have it set up with my Harmony remote to come on with my DirecTV box and Pioneer AV Receiver with the touch on one button.
Very good Projector for the price with very few drawbacks

Summary: I love it, this is the best DLP projector I have ever owned. I have a 65" Screen with a 8.5 foot throw and this is the only projector that fills the screen edge to edge. The picture is flawless at 1080P and while I do see the rainbow effect from time to time Its not stopping me from loving this projector. My only problems with this projector are as follows. >The projector is kinda heavy. I have seen worse but my last two projectors were about half the weight of this one.
Awesome projector, as long as you don't use the audio port.

Summary: I've had the ViewSonic PRO8200 for a few months now, and have been very pleased with it. I'd worked with all kinds of projectors in college; projectors with low resolutions and dull-looking picture. With that experience in mind, I was amazed at the results I got out of the ViewSonic. Not only is it incredibly bright (bright enough to simply need a blank wall to project onto), but at 1080p it's the highest resolution projector I've ever been able to play with.
Summary: After 3 months using it I'm very disapointed, I bought this projector because the Optoma HD20 jumped $ 300,00 in two weeks, I used to have an Optoma HD70 wich was HD720p and I'm 100% sure that this old model has crispier images and better color output, even though the VS PRO8200 is 1080p.
Summary: It took a while to find the right projector but this was it! Lots of inputs and great quality. Granted, I was sent the wrong one which caused a 2 week delay in enjoying my new home theater but when it showed up... WOW!
Summary: The goods: - Bright, shades open or closed I have no problem seeing the screen. - Full 1080p native resolution, no interlaced BS. - Lots of inputs (and outputs). - Comfortable level of optical zoom. The not so goods: - The speaker isn't that great. But then again, who uses a projector for its speaker? - High throw angle, depending on what you want. It's ideal for mounting on the ceiling or high on the wall, not much use sitting behind a couch.
Summary: Bought this back in October, been very happy with it since. Good quality picture, and was very easy to hook up to my speaker system. If it had a 3rd HDMI port, it would have been perfect, but very good overall.
Summary: I love the ViewSonic Pro8200. The color and picture quality are much better than I ever expected. I would recommend this projector to anyone who is looking at a great projector for a great price.
