Very good Projector for the price with very few drawbacks
17 August 2013
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: Recently my wife purchased a discounted projector for our daughter. After using it a few times I got really into the whole "Movie Room" idea. So we turned our extra living room into a movie room. I painted a 100" Widescreen on our wall and framed it out. After a few months with that projector I wanted to upgrade and bought this 1080PDLP Viewsonic. I am very pleased with it. The problem is I don't have much to compare it too. This is my first real projector.
Summary: The performance of this projector is exemplary, picture wise. it is nearly twce as bright as its predecessor and less than half the size. It has a few problems regarding the firmware. It is a problerm they have known about for months, but appear to haven't bothered fixing on newly manufactured units. The firmware has a bug which prevents it from saving important settings. Every time you turn on the projector, it's mostly at factory defaults, quite annoying.
A good Value for the affordable price of a full HD projector.

Summary: Easy set up, great HD 1080p picture,found very little fault, minor settings may change from use to use. This is a good value for the price, for a full 1080p HD projector, I am pleased with it.
Good value, maybe even great value, but not the deal of a lifetime

Summary: I am new to home theater so keep that in mind with this review. I purchased this projector in Jan 2013 based on some positive reviews for projectors that can be used for multiple purposes. For me specifically, I want to use the projector for blu ray movies (with little or no ambient light) and sports (with some ambient light). This projector seemed to do a fairly good job at both but I decided to perform due diligence and went ahead and purchased an Epson 8350 as well.
Summary: I have enjoyed this projector so far. Seems to work quite well, not nearly as noisy as some have made it out to be. Perhaps only disappointment is that it's not quite as crisp at 100" as I would like. Still a great picture, though.
Summary: Although the end result deserves four stars (can't give it five since this is my first projector, no comparison), the hoops I have to jump through to get there is truely annoying. Apparently there is this problem with dark details, as there are no details but a blob of black when first use this projector right out of the box.
Good picture quality & great brightness but general flaws of DLP projector is prominent.

Summary: I like this product because of its quite good picture quality. Having issues with blackness of black color just like had issues with any DLP projectors. But brightness of this projector is really great which makes its video good to watch. looking at the quality & price tag this projector looks good value for money.
