Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Pro9000 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as this multimedia projector.

Alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to consider include the EB-580 (£915.35), or the EB-1975W (£1,295.38) both from Epson or the Vivitek D968U-WT (£1,249).

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of data projectors of this age and type is 300 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 20,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 1,600 ANSI lumen, the Pro9000 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesses amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

If this Viewsonic multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Benq W1350 (£1,059.99) (2,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated); or the Benq W1070+W (2,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the Epson PowerLite 570 (£890.97) (2,700 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
