I have been having so much trouble with my Viewsonic Cine1000. This is the 3rd time I will be returning it for replacement. They informed me they no longer have anymore refurbs to send me...lol. I have refurbs anyhow. They wanted to send me a data (low end) projector. I argued with them and told them I need a digital input and they offered me the Pjd6531w

Looking at the specs it seems ok....but I want a home theater pj. I asked them for the Cine5000 an they dont have that either. I was looking and the only other ht pj they offer is the Pro8100.

The tech there tells me to get the PJD6531W, he has many persuasive reasons like size and lamp life etc... I think I want the pro8100 though, but I have never owned a lcd type before.

I have a 101" diy screen that I painted a gray based on advice here on this forum, (It is a N7.8 neutral gray) and at that time my contrast was much improved as a result on my then Cine1000.
Any and all advice will be appreciated.
Thanx...Bassman

That's a hard choice.

The 8100 is 1080p, 13000:1 contrast and 1000 lumens.
The 6531 is 720p, 3200:1 contrast and 3000 lumens plus is 3D capable. It accepts 1080p/24 but it might do a 3:2 pull down internally.

The 8100 is more for home theater whereas the 6531 is more for a conference room (data). I would think that the 8100 would have a nicer picture. The 8100 is also a lot quieter than the 6531 (18 vs 29dB).

I would most likely go with the 8100 if given the choice.

Thanx for the reply.
I have decided to get the 8100. I like the 3d potential of the other pj, but am not ready to invest in 3D glasses and dvd or BR player at this time. I also like the idea of auto iris (after firmware update that is) and lens shift etc...on the 8100. I hope this pj yields better results that Viewsonics previous offerings have for me thus far.

***UPDATE*** I received my new Viewsonic Pro8100 and I love it. The other model with 3D wouldn't have been worth giving up this HD picture!!
