Tack on words like “high bright” and “high-res,” and I can’t help but think “second mortgage.” ViewSonic definitely bucks those assumptions, though, with high-quality, professional-grade DLP projectors that, screen-inch-for-screen-inch, beat the heck out of the price of most good flat panel TVs. Its new Pro8 Series models — the Pro8520HD and Pro8600 – for example, feature oodles of brightness, good contrast ratio, and oodles of features aimed at professional installation, all for $2,229.99 and $2,029.99 each, repsectively.
