  • 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.

  • Summary: Use this to project onto a screen in a movie theatre. Was very surprised at how well it filled the 40' screen and the crispness of the image.

After 2 defective units - I'm done!

  • 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. He could not get the image from the projector to be 16: 9 even though the setting was on 16: 9. We measured the screen to make sure it was correct - it was.
  • Pros: Free Return Shipping
  • Cons: 169 Image - Not Accurate, Customer Service, Improper Image - Not 169, Inaccurate Aspect Ratio, Quality

Beautiful image but lacking hardware

The Church Media Guy, B&H Photo

  • 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. But, I needed both to work and to import HDMI audio through the projector and then out to the room's sound system. The audio coming through the projector sounded overdriven but was half strength on the meters.
  • 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. The Bad. The ViewSonic projector takes 6 seconds to negotiate a signal change.

Looks lovely if you could only locate one

  • Summary: Needless to say my journey to find a Viewsonic 8520HD is now appearing to resemble an impossible journey. My vendor (who shall remain nameless) can't get a firm committment from Viewsonic. I posted on Viewsonic's facebook page and no answer. At this point I'm both annoyed and puzzled and will solve my Viewsonic problem. I liked the specifications on the projector but if it's "Vaporware" I'm sure there are other manufacturers quite happy to take my money.
