Excerpt: We use this for Sunday Morning Services. Projected images are AweSum! Only two problems: 1. Still too bright for my Video Camera to record at 60%. The image wants to over expose/ blow out, the Pastor standing next to the screen is too dark and is the color of the wall behind him. 2.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, Great picture quality, Reliable Performance, Small Footprint
Summary: After one day, I am blown away by this projector. It is bright enough at 50% so if the bulb ever dims it will still work great. Very sharp image and colors. I cannot find the network software. Not sure if the ViewSonic dongle or any other brand will work on the projector as advertised.
Summary: Projector would power on but the bulb was broken. Big problem when you need the projector functioning for a conference in 2 days. Viewsonic support was woefully unhelpful. Got a refund and had a BenQ Projector overnighted, happy since.
Excerpt: Let me start by saying B&H Photo was and is great company to do business with. I wish I could say the same for ViewSonic. We are building a new church building and purchased what seemed to be a great value projector - the ViewSonic Pro8520HD. Our video installer ran into a problem.
Pros: Free Return Shipping
Cons: 169 Image - Not Accurate, Customer Service, Improper Image - Not 169, Inaccurate Aspect Ratio, Quality
Excerpt: 5K lumens for this price point is exceptional but I had to return the unit due to a defective HDMI input #1 plus weak output audio. HDMI1 had static and flicker like a bad connection. HDMI2 worked flawlessly and had a beautiful, bright image. I was in heaven.
Pros: Bright Beautiful Image, Easily Viewed, Great price, Lightweight
Cons: Flimsy, Loud And Hot, Weak Audio Passthrough
Not distraction free viewing depending on your equipment

Summary: The Good. The projector is bright and has a great picture. It's the best 5000 lumens you can get for the price. This was meant for a room that has windows and the brightness is great. I wasn't as concerned about the finer points of picture quality, but I didn't notice anything that looked off.
