10 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Projectors produced by Viewsonic generally have excellent ratings.

Only Released Eight Months Ago

As one of the newer multimedia projectors, this 5000:1 contrast ratio projector is likely to have better features.

Supports Full HD

The Viewsonic PRO8530HDL supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other recently released comparable spec data projectors do not support full HD.

There are a number of other projectors which support full HD currently available that you might also want to consider including the Viewsonic PRO8800WUL[plb_3702946_price] which has better reviews.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support full HD including the Panasonic PT-VZ575N[plb_3878496_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PRO8530HDL has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PRO8530HDL also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Benq SX920[plb_3844019_price], or the Panasonic PT-VW535NAJ[plb_3878390_price] which is cheaper; or the Viewsonic PRO8800WUL[plb_3702946_price] which has better reviews.

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the PRO8530HDL is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution. The resolution of all similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the PRO8530HDL ranges from WVGA (854x480) (worst) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) (best).

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

The quietest noise level of 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PRO8530HDL is 33dB and the loudest is 39dB. The Viewsonic PRO8530HDL has one of the quieter noise levels (only 33 decibels) amongst 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 33dB noise level projectors and we think the Viewsonic PRO8800WUL[plb_3702946_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Four HDMI Ports Quantitys

The PRO8530HDL is a four HDMI ports quantity data projector.

Chart Edit

Very Big Offset

Recently released similar spec data projectors have offsets of between 100% and 130%. With an offset of 130 percent, the PRO8530HDL's offset is one of the biggest amongst latest 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Optical Zoom

The PRO8530HDL has one of the bigger optical zooms (1.6 times zoom factor) amongst multimedia projectors of this age. Projectors that were released around the same time as the PRO8530HDL have optical zooms of between 1x and 1.8x, and the average optical zoom is 1.3x.

Chart Edit

Very Big Digital Zoom

With a digital zoom of 2 times zoom factor, the PRO8530HDL has a very big digital zoom compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for the last year. The digital zooms of newly released projectors range from 1.1x to 2x, and the average digital zoom is 1.7x.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The PRO8530HDL does not support 3D. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PRO8530HDL also do not support 3D.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support 3D to this data projector and we think the Benq SX920[plb_3844019_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other new 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors, the Viewsonic PRO8530HDL does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support wi-Fi to this multimedia projector and we think the Panasonic PT-VZ575N[plb_3878496_price] is also worth considering.

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

At only 2,500 hours, the PRO8530HDL has a fairly short service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the PRO8530HDL. Similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the PRO8530HDL have service life of lamp (economic mode)s of between 2,500h and 6,000h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

With a service life of lamp of only 2,000 hours, the Viewsonic PRO8530HDL has one of the shorter service life of lamps amongst 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. The service life of lamps of 5000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for the last year range from 2,000h to 4,500h, and the average service life of lamp is 2,600h.
