Poor picture sinks cheap ViewSonic Pro8200

 

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.

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

ViewSonic Pro8200

 

Designed as a home theater projector, the ViewSonic Pro8200 may be of more interest for business use.

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.

Viewsonic Pro8200

 

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

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...

ViewSonic Pro8200

 

A good bargain for the price, but the poor contrast leaves us disappointed

Bright picture ; Pleasing white levels ; Colours have good detail ; Sturdy build ; Backlit remote

Poor black levels ; Motion stability issues ; Picture could be cleaner and more detailed

The ViewSonic Pro8200 has its ups and downs. There’s enough detail to keep you watching, and has a lively way with brightness that’s pleasing to watch. However, the poor contrast is a big issue.

ViewSonic Pro8200 review

 

This pocket rocket offers a lot of picture for the price

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

Limited motion resolution ; noisy runner

The ViewSonic Pro8200 is a nice enough budget 1080p projector, given the ticket price. However, despite its many plus points the package is undermined by poor motion resolution, and that panning 'skip' is definitely irritating.
