ViewSonic Pro8600 review

 

The Pro8600 will definitely make you see the light, but is it worth the price tag?

Very bright ; Four-way laptop hook-up ; BrilliantColor ; Laser pointer in remote

Loudness ; Optional WiFi dongle ; Poor USB file support ; XGA resolution ; Single HDMI slot

As a catch-all projector for any environment and scenario, the Pro8600 isn't the final solution, but for many users its high brightness will trump its low resolution.
