ViewSonic Precision Pro8100 LCD Projector Review
by Clint DeBoer — July 08, 2008
- Motorized Zoom/Focus
- Motorized Lens Shift
- Beautiful enclosure
- Super Quiet
- Excellent backlit remote
- Slow Auto Iris (no Manual mode)
- Minimal Horizontal Lens Shift (10%)
- No HD Noise Reduction
- Convoluted Menu System
It strikes me as odd any time I see a projector of any significant price lacking features such as power Zoom & Focus and Lens Shift. With higher cost projectors I've become an unfortunate victim of the establishment. I've come to expect less in the way of features. Now along comes ViewSonic with its Precision Series Pro8100 LCD projector. It has powered Zoom & Focus, in addition to powered Lens Shift. It also features Silicon Optix Reon-VX video processing. Oh, and it's priced at just $4,995. I have a feeling some other manufacturers are going to have to get off their laurels and start bringing their 'A' game very quickly.
