I love this projector

Just Me, Amazon
30 December 2014
  • Summary: Won't be upgrading my PRO8200 until I go to 4k. So yea, I love this projector. I suggest buying this projector and a "DarbeeVision DVP-5000" (if you can wing it financially $199.00) and you'll be set when it comes to sheer image size and visual clarity for years to come.

The Wrong made Right

PaulYurk, B&H Photo
23 June 2014
  • Excerpt: In the design stage of my new family/theater room project I got on the phone with the experts at B&H; designed and purchased all the parts to my new entertainment system. Unfortunately (for myself) I'm not the most experienced builder, so I attempted to think of all things in advance, but, clearly did not. I originally purchased a projector that didn't have the throw distance I needed for my room.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Good Remote
  • Cons: Difficulty Filling Screen, Only Comes In Black

Excellent value for a HD projector

FilmPro, Amazon
12 May 2014
  • Summary: I did a bit of searching to find an HD projector with built in speaker and this one came up as the most recommended. It fits the bill perfectly. Decent lumens for the price and plenty of connections for all potential users. Colors are good throughout the spectrum, blacks okay. I would buy this again, a great value.

User Review

darwin, Projector Central

  • Summary: Personal Experience This projector confounded me for the first few months. First I couldn't stop noticing digital noise in the picture, then the color wheel started squeaking, plus I could never get the gamma levels correct. Then after a few hours the wheel stopped squeaking. Then after about 100 hours the digital noise disappeared. Then I realized my PC was outputting YPbPr and switched it to RGB and the gamma was finally fixed.

Good projector, worth the money

Vedika, Amazon
20 January 2014
  • Summary: This is a great projector. Can show full HD content nicely and pictures that are colorful are perfect. The only problem I have with it is, it does not perform well for darker pictures. When watching movies that have most scenes shot in the dark, it is difficult to distinguish between black background and a person's black coat, for example.

Great picture until...

Wii Parent, Amazon
17 January 2014
  • Summary: This projector was great - picture, clarity, color - until about the 11-month mark when the bulb exploded while in use. I contacted ViewSonic and arranged for warranty repair, although I had to pay to ship it back to them. It took about six weeks to get it back and appeared to be fine until we attempted to use it to play Wii through the component video output.

No More Murky Dark Scenes!

tashon jackson, Amazon
15 November 2013
  • Summary: I have only had the PRO8200 for about three weeks so far and I think it's great! I have a dedicated theater room so I can control the lighting. I am using DirecTV with the HD box and I have my Blu-Ray connected. The picture quality whether watching DirecTV or Blu-Ray movies is absolutely fabulous. But, like many others, I was frustrated initially because there was very little detail while watching dark scenes.

Brilliant for the Office, Too...

Winter, Amazon
5 November 2013
  • Summary: My office's last round of purchases involved Epson projectors, and although Epson typically make good products, these were fairly terrible--blurry, low-res, and often plaguing our meetings with cries of, "Why isn't it connecting?" So I got asked to do the legwork. Learn about projectors, sift through the tech-speak, and pick something that's really useful, doesn't do the bad things that drove us nuts with the Epsons, and--most importantly--doesn't break the bank.

Solid 1080p Home Theatre projector

Kirk, B&H Photo
15 October 2013
  • Excerpt: This is my 3rd home theatre projector. My first (Hitachi) one only lasted 1.5 years. My second one (Mitsubishi) lasted 8 years! I would've gone with another Mitsubishi but they were in the $ and up range, I like to stay at or below $.The Viewsonic Pro8200 is bright enough to see in a room with a large window with the blinds open. Of course it looks way better when it's dark in the room.
  • Pros: Bold Colors, Easy To Set Up, Interfaces Well With TV

Best projector for the price.

Grant, Amazon
1 October 2013
  • 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.
