ViewSonic Pro8400

 

ViewSonic reckons its new Pro8400 projector brings ‘high-end performance and style to home entertainment'. But it doesn't.

Very high brightness for its price, It's light and portable, Images can be watched in ambient light

Lots of rainbow effect, Below par black level response, No vertical keystone correction

Viewsonic Pro8400 Projector Review

 

This is one projector that fights ambient light, and wins the battle! Bright enough to actually work in any room at any time of the day, the Pro8400 is meant for someone who would like a projector at home, but doesn�t really have a dedicated darkened...

Super Bright

 

Got one this bright, because my wife likes the light on. About 770 hours on the bulb in 5 months time, so just over 2 years of estimated bulb life left. The bulb has dimmed enough, that the bright white is no longer painful in a dark room. The unit...

Super Bright Picture. Bright enough to project on a matte white textured wall and compete with 150 watt light bulb turned on with out too much wash out

Any loss of signal (i.e. switching inputs or sources) causes the projector to show the ViewSonic logo with an eye searing white background...not so great for a darkened room. Some flickering issues with the bulb. Occasionally forgets the settings;...

Beautiful Picture - with a bit of a aim issue

 

I had RMA'd the first projector because of the aim issue, besides contacting ViewSonic about the issue and being told that this is not Normal, receiving a second projector with the same issue leads me to believe it is infact normal. However a distance...

Beautiful 1080 picture, 2xHDMI inputs and fast refresh rate, bright on wall even with daylight shining through blinds. PIP/POP for sharing 2 HDMI signals! - but also includes all the other inputs as well

Aims straight with NO zoom, at MAX zoom the picture is High on the wall even having to prop up the back of the projector to get a picture straight on the wall ; The image is that the lowest part of the image does not move with the zoom like normal...

Viewsonic Pro8400 DLP Projector

 

Fantastic projector we have it projected on wall 108 across and it looks stunning. The 4000 lumens is incredibly bright and the picture does not degrade when the blinds are open during the day. We got this projector to replace a viewsonic pj1165 that...
