ViewSonic Pro8520HD review

 

Bright images, loud noises, good projector

Very bright ; Full HD ; USB Display ; Two HDMI slots ; Peak whites

Very loud ; Optional WiFi dongle ; Single USB slot ; Motion blur ; Over-saturated colours

Viewsonic's Pro8520HD will do a fine job in all kinds of light conditions in classrooms, lecture halls and conference rooms. Largely because of its high detail and brightness – but it can be quite noisy.
