ViewSonic Pro8200

 

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...

ViewSonic PRO8200

 

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.

Nice

 

None. Amazing projector! Amazing Price! Amazing Quality!

This was my first projector and I didn't know much about projectors going into this project ; I use the projector for normal TV, Netflix, PS3 and Xbox360. I was skeptic about quality when I saw the price tag compared to other 1080p projectors, but when...

There was only one problem with this projector ; The picture is static, as in you cannot adjust the projection angle. The image is shot at about a 35-45 degree pointing upward. It was suggested by viewsonic to mount the projector upside down to help...

Great for the $$$, obviously not the best

 

All in all, it's a great projector that I use very rarely (around 1-hour per/week) to watch a show or two.

This is my first projector I've actually owned and it rocks. With a little tweaking, you can achieve great quality out of it

At this price points, you're bound to have some cons. For instance, this projector is very sensitive to the circuit that it's on. I have a mini-fridge and whenever it's on, I get horizontal lines across the screen more than usual. Yes, this does mean I...
