The ViewSonic® LS700HD is a lamp-free, 1080p, multi-purpose home entertainment laser projector that should perform capably in the home as well as the conference and education space. The LS700HD looks really good on paper which, pending testing, should make it an extremely flexible projector. To start, it features 3,500 ANSI lumens high brightness. The lamp-free laser light source is estimated to last for 20,000 hours at full brightness. This exceptionally long life helps eliminate the need for regular costly lamp replacement. The LS700HD features what ViewSonic calls a 3x Fast input for gaming, one of the highlights of this projector. As a home theater projector, the LS-700HD offers 3D Blu-ray compatibility. ViewSonic makes great efforts to overcome the color limitations of DLP by offering their cinematic color technology and a pre-set movie mode that uses Notch Filter technology designed to improve color rendering. I’ll let you know if these technologies make a difference for this projector.
Although the LS700HD is designed for the home market, a review of the specifications reveal a projector also well-suited for business applications. The 300-inch projection capability is designed to make playing games or watching movies as immersive an experience as possible. The LS700HD lists for $1,693 but its actual street price is around $1499 at the time of this review’s publication. Let’s take a closer look at the top level features.
