Pros: Great Lumens, versatility in mounting ease, clear picture, price point

Cons: Flickering video, Power pack issues, support.

I purchased this online for $949 February 2010 I consider my self a do it your self-er and the challenges when setting up 3D gave me a headache to the point where i gave up on it being able to play 3D. and i returned the 2 pairs of $129 glasses.


Pro's

The Lumens is great. During sporting events we could have 2 over head florescent lights on in the room and there was no issues with seeing anything.
The Picture quality was very good. We played ours on a 98" screen about 12 feet from the screen
The controls were easy to navigate and plenty of options in them.
The mounting options were good.
Played both wide screen and 4x3

Cons

Advertised as 3D ready. When you go to set up or connect to 3D there is no support coming from Viewsonic at all. You will have to resort to forums and web searches. We could not get this to work unless you were setting 2-3 feet from the screen. any other distance would not work. I rate this as a Fail.
Finding accessories is limited only to viewsonic web site and out of stock parts are rampant. when i needed to purchase the connector that allowed component inputs i had to wait over a month for it to arrive.
For no reason at all the video would seem to drop down 2 levels in Brightness last for around 2 seconds then it would go back to the previous level.
Support is for the product is poor.
Known for power pack issues. You hit the power blue lite(indicating power) is on nothing happens with the unit. According to the manual and web site this is normal and the unit is starting up. But the unit does not start. After searching solutions it seems many have the same issue. if you are under warranty great if not you might as well throw out the projector. Unfortunately my power pack issues happened 3 months our of warranty.
Poor troubleshooting procedures. both on the web and when calling for support.

3D Technology Checklist This product is 3D-related. To help you get a great 3D experience, use our checklist below to ensure that you have everything you need. If you have any questions or want to learn more about 3D, we invite you to visit 3D 101--our center for everything 3D. To get started with 3D, please ensure that you have: A Display The first--and most important--item you'll need is a 3D-ready display--whether it be a 3D HDTV, 3D projector, or 3D computer monitor. These displays usually have a higher processing power than older models as they need to display one image for each eye to create a 3D effect. A Source While your display is ready for 3D playback, you still need a device to read 3D content (i.e., a movie or a show). This source can be a cable box with a subscription to a 3D channel, a 3D Blu-ray Disc player, or a PlayStation 3. Content In order to watch 3D, you will need to get some 3D content. This 3D content will come from the source mentioned above in the form of a 3D program, movie, or game. Please ensure that your 3D movies are in the Blu-ray 3D format, as this new format will provide the best 3D experience. 3D Glasses All 3D HDTVs on the market require Active Shutter glasses to create the 3D effect. You will need to buy one pair of glasses for each viewer. Also make sure that the Active Shutter glasses you buy are compatible with your display--for example, buy the glasses from the same brand as your 3D HDTV. HDMI Cable To connect your source (such as a 3D Blu-ray Disc player) to your display, you'll need a hgh-speed HDMI cable. Cables with this designation--with bandwidth speeds up to 10.2 Gbps (gigabits per second)--will be able to carry the 3D signal without any loss of quality. If you want to get more information about 3D, shop our 3D products, watch videos, or interact with other customers, visit 3D 101, our customer center about everything 3D.
