This is a great projector. We placed this in our church worship center and shoot it on a 10' wide screen. The colors are bright and sharp. We ordered the WPD-100 and are hoping to gain even more vertisility. For the price you won't find a better projector. This product is very bright and works great in our sanctuary which is artificially lit with florescent lighting. Before this we had a lower lumen projector that was sub par, but this one really is bright. We are looking to expand the sanctuary and I would have no problem buying this model again to use in conjunction with the one we already have. The only reason I ranked this 3 stars is that the advertisement said that you could replace the startup screen with your custom logo. This is not the case. I went to ViewSonic's website and chatted with a customer support agent who, after about 10 minutes of "let me research this issue for you" stated that this feature isn't available yet and I should keep checking back on their website for updates. What should happen is that they should offer a partial refund off the purchase price (or give a free bulb replacement) and notify the buyer whenever they do make the firmware revision available for download and install and then make their support available for questions or help during that install. Is this a feature most will use? No. But if you are going to advertise this as a feature, then you need to make sure it actually has that feature or make right on your marketing mistake. Just be honest and stand by your claims.v Read More

awesome product

on 3/21/2012

The ViewSonic Pro8500 replaced a 5-yr old Epson 50c (1000 lumens). It is used in a church sanctuary with clear windows on the sides letting in bright sunlight. Its first use generated many compliments. The image was clear and the whites ar particularly bright. The fan was also quieter than the previous projector. The projector will be used for Powerpoint and DVD videos. I haven't tested hi-def or 3D. Some menu items described in the user manual were missing (like the option to choose your own startup screen), but I found all the functions that I needed. ViewSonic Tech Support suggested that I try a new cable for the missing menu items. Of course that made no difference. The projector itself performed well. It was the brightest (5000 lumens) projector I found at a relatively low price. Read More
