4 out of 5 eggsMoney Pit

Pros: Good Resolution
Dual HDMI
Output Auxiliary for speakers
130" Screen on our apartment wall
(Works great on white walls, don't waste the money on a small and super expensive screen)

Cons: Expensive
Don't Trust Lamp Life
Short warranties

Other Thoughts: The only reason I am giving 4 stars is because I love this projector so much. I couldn't ask for more given what I initially payed for it. However, be wary of this projector. My lamp failed after only 1000 hours of use when it was stated from multiple sources that there would be a 4000 to 6000 hour lamp life.

CAUTION: 3 year warranty doesn't include the lamp. The lamp has a separate 1 year warranty, any failure after that and you're buying a new one. Also any replacement bulb you buy after your original one fails (for $330 from viewsonic, which is more than 1/3 of the whole projector itself) has only a 90 day warranty.

I will never go back to a normal TV I can't handle it anymore, you are seriously missing out by not owning a projector. Just make sure you can handle the investment before getting into it.

5 out of 5 eggsStill Going Strong

Pros: I reviewed this projector in 2012, when it had about 2000 hours on it (traditional projector bulb life) and it was going strong. Well, it's still going strong at 5,000 hours on the original bulb. It still looks great. I've built a wall to expand the image to it's maximum 12" wide projection size. (much bigger than the 120" screen I bought for it) 12" wide is the maximum size for a living room projector at such close range (6'-14' away from the screen) without it being ridiculous.

Any larger and the pixels would be too large. This is a great example in being able to tell a major difference between 720p and 1080p source media as well.

Cons: It's hard to keep my roommates from burning up all my bulb hours

Other Thoughts: I don't understand why everyone doesn't have a projector. It is bad@ss.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked Great For a Week

Pros: Clear Picture

Cons: The fans never spun correctly and would randomly stop spinning at all. So the unit overheated and shutdown all the time. RMA'ed it back to newegg. We'll see how the new one does when it arrives.

3 out of 5 eggsAverage pj

Pros: It was reasonably cheap. Bright. Acceptable quality for the price. Long warranty.

Cons: Average to poor dark scenes definition. Image throw angle is quite steep and not adjustable. Not sharp across the entire image, it is not noticeable in movies, but quite noticeable in PC desktop fonts.

Other Thoughts: Poor sharpness is the most disappointing.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks good... except

Pros: I've had this thing for a while now and it works good. Very bright and crisp.

It powers on the fastest of any projector I've ever had.

Cons: As will all projectors, darker grays and black don't show so much.

Other Thoughts: So hooked up a HTPC to it and it is cutting off the top and bottom of windows. This is driving me nuts.
Can only zoom _in_ but not out. Overscan is greyed out making me want to punt it.
Can't find anything helpful on forums on how to enable this.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: 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 I finally saw the quality on my 8" screen I was speechless.

My other thought was a loss in picture quality when I was playing or watching a fast paced video. This projector far passes my expectations of what I thought projectors were capable of now-a-days.

Cons: 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 with this problem.

Do not think you will be able to wall mount this projector. Very difficult. Needs to be on a table in front of the couch or upside down from the ceiling to project equally to the screen.

Other Thoughts: None. Amazing projector! Amazing Price! Amazing Quality!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the $$$, obviously not the best

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

Cons: 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 get occasional lines across the screen on a daily basis, but it's not something that will interrupt your viewing experience (that much).

Picture wise, the projector sucks at producing blacks. Then again, I'm spoiled by the premium LED panels around the house.

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

2 out of 5 eggsDecent Projector, Iffy Quality, Horrible Service

Pros: This projector has decent reviews and specs for its price point. I did a lot of research before selecting it, and I was initially happy with it. Great out-of-box calibration, colors were very accurate. The thing is a light cannon, easily watchable in daylight. 1080P content looks great at 104".

Cons: It's noisy. This is my first HT projector, so maybe i'm expecting too much, but the cooling fan is easily audible at reasonable listening volumes. The issue is exacerbated due to the unit being mounted directly overhead in my installation. All the other 'cons' I was expecting after reading reviews and spec sheets. No show-stoppers. Then...

One evening last month (PJ was ~4 months old at this point, 50 lamp hours), I powered on the projector, and nothing happened. The fans kicked on, but no image, not even menu. I pulled cables, tried different inputs, outlets, etc... I ended up calling Viewsonic support who ran me through the predictable help desk routine (power off/on, blow out dust). He was eventually satisfied that the PJ was indeed dead, and sent me an RMA. I shipped the projector back to ViewSonic at my expense ($35). After a week "In Repair" the unit was sent back to me. There was no paperwork or explanation in the ticket as to what repairs had been done. There was a Post-It taped to the projector that said "Lamp NG". That was it. I plugged the PJ back in and... same thing. No image! Furious, I called up ViewSonic support and asked for an explanation. The "tech" pulled up my ticket, and after reading through it informed me that they had found no problem with the unit. I replied that there was indeed a problem, as I had just tested it and it was still inoperative. I asked him what the "Lamp NG" sticker meant and he said "Oh! That means the lamp unit is bad and needs to be replaced!" I asked him WHY DIDN'T YOU PUT A NEW LAMP IN IT WHEN IT WAS THERE!? He told me that I had to submit proof of purchase to show the unit was within the 1-year lamp warranty. Now why they couldn't have determined this while the unit was in for repair is beyond my understanding...

So I email them my Newegg invoice, and they submit the replacement lamp order on March 14th, with an expected delivery of "5-7 business days, depending on stock availability". It is now March 27th, I have still not received the lamp, and my PJ has been out of commission since February 25th.

Other Thoughts: I researched projectors for months before settling on this unit. I saw no indications from reviews here and at avsforum that this model had any issues like I've experienced. I really hope that this is a freak occurrence, as I don't have the patience to deal with ViewSonic support again.

2 out of 5 eggsHDMI 1 Audio Dies

Pros: Everything else works.

Cons: The HDMI audio has blown out, extensive testing proves it's just that port. There's an hdmi 2 but this is really annoying.

Other Thoughts: I liked having 2 HDMI ports, it's not nice to only have one that fully works.
