Pros: Lifetime lamp design, next generation video quality (as to DLP contrast ratio; WQHD or 4k or 8k are industrial only resolution levels still); ViewSonic 3 year warranty includes lamp, unlike 1 year or less limit on other projectors (another reviewer posted false information - lamp life on this model is the same spec as found in many panel TV's; IOW, it never gets replaced for projector life absent defects, unlike quartz lamps). This is a zero expected maintenance proje...
Cons: Not overly bright - better to use flat panel unless portability is needed; expensive (for now?). Spec's don't list international compatibility (eg, like Acer K750, their slightly less expensive but lower video quality LED projector). Not as compact or focused on wireless presentations as some Epson's (but those are still 720p only models) (all models NewEgg sells - hopefully then allowable comparisons here). Since portability and ease of setup in different rooms are t...
Pros: Good picture. Worked great for everything I needed while it was still working.
Cons: Not even 2 weeks of owning it and it died. Was using it and there was a pop and it shut off and won't turn back on. For the price I would expect something like this to last longer than a couple weeks huge disappointment.
Pros: Laser/LED projection is definitely the way to go, we've had a Casio one at our company for a couple years now. This is what all projectors should be switching to. Instant on, instant off, much cooler, great color and clarity.
Cons: Expensive. High entry cost, but pays for itself.
Pros: yes, it's expensive to have it replaced, but how many people use it continuously for 2 years!? most projectors are used for presentations or home theater. 2 star review will make this look bad, which it probably is not.
Cons: parts and labor for maintenance might be expensive, but that's expected.
Cons: after a total of about 2.25 years of contiual use the laser could die, and would have to be replaced for 180$ plus the cost of the laser and shipping. The warranty will only replace the laser up until 1 year of ownership. cost benefit of laser over bulbs not quite worth it!
