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.
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.
Summary: Got this when they had a sale for about $650 on a refurbished one. Works great with my xbox 360 setup. Might buy another for the parents. Pros: - Huge widescreen view - Clear 1080p picture - Very bright - Easy/simple settings menu - Multiple vga and hdmi ports for various devices.
Summary: We bought this for our community "movie in the park" events. The set up was super easy using an hdmi 1 cable also with an HD 1080p DVD player. Reading a few of the reviews helped me figure out what would work best for outside viewing. We are very happy with this purchase. Has all the connections that we were looking for.
Summary: Delivers excellent color from the PC matching the presentation graphics. The image is clear and the projection is excellent. Definitely great for a conference room projector. Not one to use for portable needs.
Summary: The picture is superior to my 39" 1080p flat screen in all categories. I highly recommend this projector as I don't believe there is anything on the market that even comes near it's performance.
