bad experiences

Cyrus P., Newegg
8 August 2012
  • Summary: Buy a different brand with better support especially if you want to connect to the projector using TCP/IP.
  • Pros: Nice bright display with pretty decent sharpness for a projector.
  • Cons: The projector failed in less than 1 week. It started automatically powering down after about 15 minutes of use with no overheating LED warnings. Viewsonic replaced it with a new projector with a manufactured date 1 year newer than what newegg sent me. Viewsonic wireless adapter only supports WEP ...

Best projector I have ever used

3 July 2012
  • Summary: By far the best projector I have ever owned or used, in every respect. Produces a beautiful, perfectly sharp, brilliant image. Love the adjustability of the throw length of the lens.

Super Bright

Bradley B., Newegg
27 November 2011
  • Summary: Got one this bright, because my wife likes the light on. About 770 hours on the bulb in 5 months time, so just over 2 years of estimated bulb life left. The bulb has dimmed enough, that the bright white is no longer painful in a dark room.
  • Pros: Super Bright Picture. Bright enough to project on a matte white textured wall and compete with 150 watt light bulb turned on with out too much wash out.
  • Cons: Any loss of signal (i.e. switching inputs or sources) causes the projector to show the ViewSonic logo with an eye searing white background...not so great for a darkened room. Some flickering issues with the bulb. Occasionally forgets the settings; mine in on a UPS, so it isn't power loss related....

Not so good for home theater

Bill, B&H Photo
7 November 2011
  • Excerpt: This projecter has a super bright image and at 1080P there were times when image quality very high. Unfortunately, there were many more times when the image was just plain bad. This would probably be a good projector for presentations, but not for home theater.

Beautiful Picture - with a bit of a aim issue

Anonymous, Newegg
3 November 2011
  • Summary: I had RMA'd the first projector because of the aim issue, besides contacting ViewSonic about the issue and being told that this is not Normal, receiving a second projector with the same issue leads me to believe it is infact normal.
  • Pros: Beautiful 1080 picture, 2xHDMI inputs and fast refresh rate, bright on wall even with daylight shining through blinds. PIP/POP for sharing 2 HDMI signals! - but also includes all the other inputs as well.
  • Cons: Aims straight with NO zoom, at MAX zoom the picture is High on the wall even having to prop up the back of the projector to get a picture straight on the wall. The image is that the lowest part of the image does not move with the zoom like normal projectors do, the bottom of the image is always t...

Good Projector When it Works

Wanted a Projector that Works, B&H Photo
26 May 2011
  • Excerpt: We bought the Pro8400 projector for use in a conference room; it was mounted in the ceiling on a proper mount. The projector is bright and clear, but it would not retain the setting for being mounted in the ceiling.

Not for me

Mr.G, B&H Photo
28 April 2011
  • Excerpt: I couldn't seem to get this projector to be tack sharp. It was bright but the image from my mac lap top was not clear. Im not sure why. I sent it back. Also seems like they use cheap parts.

NOT a ceiling projector!!

Corporate AV Engineer, B&H Photo
4 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Despite it's claims, this is not a projector for a ceiling mount application. Even in inverted mode, the top of the image does not shoot straight from the lens. It is projected downward, requiring either the projector to be significantly HIGHER than the top of the screen, or tilt the projector up a...
