15 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

The average expert rating of this projector is 77% based on six expert reviews from sites including hifitest.de, audiovideohd.fr, itproportal.com and firstpost.com.

Good Owner Reviews

The average owner rating of this multimedia projector is 80 out of 100 based on 9 owner reviews.

Viewsonic Has Excellent Multimedia Projector Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Viewsonic projectors and also specifically for Viewsonic projectors and found that in both cases Viewsonic had excellent ratings compared to other brands.

Good Product Quality

Some Viewsonic Pro9000 reviewers who purchased it agreed that it was good quality. David wrote this month “Excellent picture quality” in his review and gave the product a rating of 80 out of 100. David also mentioned “No problem with image quality”. Expert website Itproportal.com said “It delivers a suitably high quality image, little to no rainbow effect”.

Good Picture Quality

Some Viewsonic Pro9000 owners who bought it wrote that it had good picture quality.

Good High Def TV

One Viewsonic Pro9000 reviewer said in their reviews that this projector was good at displaying high definition TV. Expert review site Itproportal.com wrote four years ago “The full 1080p HD ViewSonic Pro9000 lacks some of the features you might expect to see in this sort of price range – including, for example, frame interpolation –” in their Viewsonic Pro9000 review.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Pro9000 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that were launched more than two years ago do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support Full HD projection and we think because of it's better review score, the HD30, and the HD50 both from Optoma is also worth considering.

There are a number of other projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to look at including the Hitachi CP-AW3019WNM.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Pro9000 has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type which do not have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Optoma HD30.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Hitachi CP-AW3019WNM, or the Sony VPL-SW526C.

This projector is a two built-in speaker projector compared to most of the comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the Pro9000 which only have one built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

At 20,000 hours, the Pro9000 has a fairly long lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the Pro9000. The lamp service lives of comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age support 3D image projection, however the Pro9000 does not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the HD30, or the HD50 both from Optoma or the Epson EH-TW5910 which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other projectors of this age and type, the Pro9000 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of projectors that were released more than two years ago is 300 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 9,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 2,900 ANSI lumens.

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the Epson EH-TW5910 (2,100 ANSI lumens), or the Optoma HD50 (2,200 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.

Very Low Number of Colours

At only 1.07 million, the Pro9000 has a fairly low number of colours compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the Pro9000. The numbers of colours of projectors that have been available for around the same time as the Pro9000 range from 1M to 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

With an optical zoom of only 1.2 times zoom factor, the Viewsonic Pro9000 has a quite small optical zoom compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the Pro9000.
