Summary: The projector seems to work well, now, but be aware that if you need warranty work, it may take some significant time and hassle. The first one I received would crash and garble the screen if it had been plugged in for more than an hour prior to being turned on. This basically made it useless for my use (ceiling mount).

Summary: We bought two of them a few months ago. One of them is doing fine but the other one faded out especially in higher resolution modes. Their turn around time is said to be 14 business days. We'll have to see how fast they get it back to us. The main issue I have with them other than that is that in HDMI mode it cuts off the bottom couple percent of the screen. In VGA mode it doesn't do that.
Summary: We use this in our large conference room. The clarity is so good you can read text easily over 30 feet away with the lights on. All the adjustments makes it easy to configure and all the input gives you plenty of options. Will be buying another one soon.
Cons: The first unit would only stay on for about 1.5 minutes before powering down. Hopefully the replacement will be reliable. It's big & heavy so not the most practical to haul around to conference rooms - it'll be worth it if it lives up to its specs.
Box says it all...Business Projector - Not Great For Home Theater
8 August 2014
Summary: As the box says, this is a "Business Projector" - not exactly fitting for a Home Theater application in my experience. Pros: Bright enough for a boardroom, well-lit classroom, etc with solid colors and picture clarity. It's a nice projector. Cons: Automatic overscan on HDMI. Cuts off the edges of your image. Forget about computer pushing 1080p over HDMI. That Con is a total dealbreaker for me. Maybe it can be turned off. Previous reviews indicate it can't though.
Excerpt: This is my first experience with a View Sonic product and even though we have not had it long it is a great improvement over our old Panasonic projector. We purchased this product to use in our church sanctuary and the picture is brighter and clearer than I expected. We bought two units linked them together and we are projecting on front and rear screens simultaneously. We have had nothing but positive comments since we installed them.
Summary: I got this for what I thought was a great deal. I was not looking for the highest quality but really the best bang for my $. I use this everyday in business for demoing my software. I also use it on the weekends for showing movies on the side of the house. It is very bright in the office. It is not bright enough for daytime outdoor viewing at long throws but what projector really is? None really...
