Expert reviews and ratings

The 3600 Lumens of the brightness comes along with a high contrast of 22000:1 will ensure that the images that are produced have a very high quality. The light present in the room will not be able to affect the quality and brightness of the images.


By BuyDLP – N/A 

Because it comes in 3 different variations (SVGA, WXGA, and XGA), the projector is easy to recommend for a variety of purposes. If you have the budget, go for the XGA version which provides the highest resolution. If you are looking to save some money then consider the uses for this projector. For outdoor movie and sports nights, the SVGA version should suffice as most people won’t notice the slightly lower resolution.

ViewSonic has made some amazing projectors, and this one is no different. If you’ve been searching for a projector that will do everything you need at a price point that is still cheaper than a new TV, you just found it.
