4 Reasons For

Viewsonic Has Excellent Projector Reviews

Viewsonic is one of the best projector brands according to average user and expert review score data that we have collected for all data projectors.

Only Released Eight Months Ago

This projector was only released eight months ago.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Viewsonic PRO8520WL has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for the last year also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Hitachi CP-WX5505, or the Panasonic PT-VW535NAJ.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

Most new 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors do not support 3D. The PRO8520WL is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to consider include the Benq SX920.

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PRO8520WL, the PRO8520WL does not support full HD.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD that you might also want to consider include the Viewsonic PRO8800WUL.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most new 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors do not support wi-Fi. The PRO8520WL is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other projectors which also support wi-Fi to this multimedia projector and we think the Panasonic PT-VZ575N ($1,828.99) is also worth considering.
