8 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Viewsonic is one of the top rated projector manufacturers according to average expert and user review score data that we have collected for all multimedia projectors.

Just Released Six Months Ago

Being released just six months ago, this multimedia projector is likely to have more advanced features.

Supports Full HD Projection

The PRO8530HDL supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PRO8530HDL do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for the last year, the PRO8530HDL has a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Panasonic PT-VW535NAJ, the Benq SX920 ($899.00), or the Hitachi CP-WX5505 ($1,989.99).

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Viewsonic PRO8530HDL is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all new data projectors the best resolution is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) and the worst is SVGA (800x600).

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

Projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PRO8530HDL have noise levels of between 33dB and 39dB. The PRO8530HDL has a quite quiet noise level (only 33 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PRO8530HDL.

Chart Edit

Four HDMI Ports

The Viewsonic PRO8530HDL has more HDMI ports than most of the 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released in the last 12 months. This multimedia projector is a four HDMI port data projector compared to most of the newly released 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors which only have between one and three HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Very Big Offset

The offsets of new 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors range from 100% to 130%, and the average offset is 120%. The PRO8530HDL has one of the biggest offsets (130 percent) amongst 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most projectors that are a similar age to the PRO8530HDL do not support 3D image projection. The Viewsonic PRO8530HDL is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to consider include the Benq SX920 ($899.00) which is also cheaper.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most comparable spec projectors that were released in the last year do not support WiFi connectivity. The Viewsonic PRO8530HDL is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PRO8530HDL is 2,500h and the longest is 6,000h. At only 2,500 hours, the PRO8530HDL has a quite short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other recently released 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The lamp service lives of comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the PRO8530HDL range from 2,000h to 4,500h. At only 2,000 hours, the Viewsonic PRO8530HDL has a fairly short lamp service life compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PRO8530HDL.
