Poor picture sinks cheap ViewSonic Pro8200

 

The ViewSonic Pro8200 may seem "cheap and cheerful," but its sub-par image quality against rivals makes it a worse value.

The ViewSonic Pro8200 DLP projector is cheap, and the design is fairly flashy looking; keystone adjustment and picture processing are excellent for the price; plenty of inputs.

It has bizarrely poor black levels; shadow detail is severely crushed; overly saturated colors; no lens shift or 3D capability.

ViewSonic says it considers the Pro8200 a home theater projector because of a constellation of features, including the 1080p native resolution, the two HDMI 1.3 ports, and two features that should, in theory, give it a high-quality video image: a...

Two HDMI ports. Native 1080p resolution. Zoom lens (1.5x). Suitably bright. Works well as a data projector

No 3D support. Particularly noticeable rainbow effect, with light areas breaking up into primary colors

Although billed as a home theater projector, with 1080p native resolution and two HDMI ports, the ViewSonic Pro8200 succeeds better as a data projector.

Ultimately, the Viewsonic Pro8200 can be considered a dual purpose projector - a cross-over. It can be used for business or education presentations, or fit right at home as a very nice home entertainment projector

Bright entry level home projector with sufficient lumens for most portable business use as well ; Very versatile projector, overall ; Loaded with inputs, including 2 hdmi, 2 computer, 1 component, 1 USB ; Big audio - a pair of 10 watt speakers, three...

A bit noisy in full power mode, with a claimed, and unimpressive 31 db ; HDMI seems not quite as built-proof as other projectors ; Small remote's buttons cannot be read in dark despite blue led backlight ; Lack of lens shift (although typical of lower...

Combine that with the rich feature set - yes, even picture in picture, and the Viewsonic stands out among the sub $1000 home projectors, and it has to be the most versatile of the cross-over projectors I've seen so far for the price. It's when I added...

What I like about the Pro8200 is that it manages to be a good cross-over projector, yet still measures up well as a real home projector for it’s price. If you’ve got less than a grand to spend, but need a good business projector that is also reasonably...

The ViewSonic PRO8200 truly is one of the leading competitors in the realm of LCD projector TVs. We found that it will produce an absolutely amazing picture in a home theater setting, and it has all of the connection types to make it a breeze to set...

The very long lamp life and 1080p HD resolution make this projector one of the best

ViewSonic does not specify the lens type

The ViewSonic PRO8200 is a great home theater projector for any room size.

Excellent colour fidelity ; good connectivity ; bright enough for a partially lit room ; modest footprint

Limited motion resolution ; noisy runner

This pocket rocket offers a lot of picture for the price, says Steve May. But it should resolve to do better
