Good Picture Quality

Several customers who purchased it agreed that it had good picture quality.

Good High Def TV

One person who reviewed the product thought it was good at displaying high definition TV. Expert review site Itproportal.com wrote in their review of this projector “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 –”.

Supports Full HD

The Pro9000 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the Pro9000 do not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support full HD and we think a cheaper projector such as the Optoma HD161X or you might consider a higher rated projector such as the Optoma HD50 ($1,593.83), and the Epson EH-TW5910 are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Viewsonic Pro9000 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the Pro9000 also have a built-in speaker(s).

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Epson EH-TW5910, or the Optoma GT1070.

Other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might also want to look at include the Sony VPL-SW630 ($1,189.95).
