ViewSonic is a company that is synonymous with producing some great and good-looking projectors for a very long time. They have introduced another good projector in the Indian market, which caters to both home as well as business users. We tinkered around with this one for some time to find out what it is all about. If you are in the market to buy a projector then you should read the ViewSonic LS600WE projector review below.
ViewSonic LS600WE projector review: Design
The ViewSonic LS600WE projector is nothing out of the ordinary when it comes to its design, but it looks modern and checks all the boxes of a good design. Dressed in white, it is a fairly large projector that can be roof-mounted or kept on the table. We kept it on the table and were up and running in 5 minutes time. Yes, that is how much time it takes to set it up.
The functions are fairly simple and with the supplied IR remote and well-placed buttons on top of the projector you can access all the features with ease. There are a lot of ports placed behind the ViewSonic LS00WE projector. These include a couple of HDMI ports, 1 Ethernet port, USB, Video-in and audio in and out ports. We connected the laptop to the projector via HDMI and the results were good. More about it in the performance section.
The manual zoom knob is also given on the top, which also works well and is not flimsy at all. Users can zoom 1.2X optically using it. A 10W speaker is also part of the ViewSonic LS600WE projector, which is given at the back of the projector. It is not super loud but is decent for small to medium rooms. In case you want higher sound, you can connect external speakers.
ViewSonic LS600WE projector review: Performance
Now on to the fun part. The ViewSonic LS600WE projector is an LED projector and not the usual Lamp driven projector. According to the company, it can last for up to 30,000 hours. Which is good enough for a very-very long time. It supports FHD resolution (up to 1080p) which will display great imagery on a wall or projector screen. 3,800 ANSI lumens of brightness is there, which is exceptional if you are watching it in brightly lit rooms.
We tested it on a yellow/off white wall and we were very happy with the results. The images were great, there was no ghosting, and the blacks seemed deep. The colours were vibrant and there was no need to dim the lights. As said, the sound is fine for small rooms, but for large ones, you do require extra speakers. The supplied remote works well, too. Keystone correction is another good feature that allows the users to rectify the screen if the projector is kept at an angle.
The projector consumes 270watts when working and just 0.5W when in standby mode. ViewSonic LS600WE projector supports screen sizes from 30-300 inches. That is an A+ in our books as you can enjoy sporting events and movies on an extremely large screen. Overall, we loved what this neat device had to project.
At Rs 1,49,000 the ViewSonic LS600WE projector is a decent buy for home users and businesses, as it does not have any moving parts. It is also dust resistant and considering our homes and offices are very dusty, the projector will last longer. A worthy buy if you can afford it.
