Summary: It works good. Recently upgraded to an SI screen (gray) and it improves the picture quality a bit. The lamp is plenty bright so don't have to dark out the entire room. Only one keystone dimension so it has to be a straight line to the screen. Can adjust the image up and down but not left and right.
Pros: Still running on the original lamp after all these years. Nice picture quality.
Cons: Struggles with the darker contrast like most projectors. Also it is quite loud. Sitting near it can be a bit distracting. Not as many keystone options as other projectors.
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.
Summary: The only reason I am giving 4 stars is because I love this projector so much. I couldn't ask for more given what I initially payed for it. However, be wary of this projector. My lamp failed after only 1000 hours of use when it was stated from multiple sources that there would be a 4000 to 6000 hour...
Pros: Good Resolution Dual HDMI Output Auxiliary for speakers 130" Screen on our apartment wall (Works great on white walls, don't waste the money on a small and super expensive screen)
Cons: Expensive Don't Trust Lamp Life Short warranties
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.
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.
Summary: All in all, it's a great projector that I use very rarely (around 1-hour per/week) to watch a show or two.
Pros: This is my first projector I've actually owned and it rocks. With a little tweaking, you can achieve great quality out of it.
Cons: At this price points, you're bound to have some cons. For instance, this projector is very sensitive to the circuit that it's on. I have a mini-fridge and whenever it's on, I get horizontal lines across the screen more than usual. Yes, this does mean I get occasional lines across the screen on a ...
