I would buy the Optoma or a BenQ W1070 (if price is close). Viewsonic, in my experience, has terrible build quality and engineering. They have stupid things go wrong and don't stand behind their products. They are far more diversified in their product offerings which means they seem to be happy to write-off their own poor quality in projectors more easily. They may look the same, but under the hood I trust both Optoma and BenQ far more than Viewsonic.
