The ViewSonic X2000B-4K is a 4K Ultra-Short Throw (UST) smart Laser Projector that retails for $3,098.99. The projector can deliver 2000 ANSI lumens of brightness and it includes a high-quality integrated Harman/Kardon 50-watt Bluetooth audio system. UST projectors like the X2000B-4K have many of the features found on a modern smart flat panel TV so they are often referred to as Laser TVs.
ViewSonic sent Projector Reviews a demo sample of the X2000B-4K to review. To test the projector, I connected my Kaleidescape Compact Terra 6TB movie server, Kaleidescape Strato C 4K movie player, Apple 4K TV, PlayStation 5, and Razer Blade 17 4K – GeForce RTX™ 3080 Ti laptop to the X2000B-4K via certified 48Gbps HDMI cables. For this review, I projected onto a 110-inch Screen Innovations (SI) Solo Pro 2 Unity AT Pure White 1.3 gain screen and an Elite Screens Aeon CLR® 3 Series, 103-inch ALR screen.
I will start with a brief overview of the X2000B-4K, followed by some of the projector’s notable features. I will then take you through the X2000B-4K’s hardware and discuss performance and video quality. Finally, I will summarize my findings, including a list of pros and cons. My goal is to cover everything you need to decide if the ViewSonic X2000B-4K is the right projector for your Laser TV needs by the time you reach the end of this review.
The ViewSonic X2000B-4K is a smart UST projector with a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $3,098.99. The projector utilizes second-generation laser phosphor technology rated at 2000 ANSI lumens. The second-generation Laser Phosphor technology improves brightness, and heat-resistance and reduces the product size. The laser light source can last up to 20,000 hours for years of home entertainment with ViewSonic’s Cinema SuperColor™.
The X2000B-4K’s embedded Wi-Fi connectivity enables screen mirroring directly from iOS and Android smart devices making content easy to stream. In addition, the dual built-in Harman/Kardon tweeters and woofers deliver room-filling audio that surpasses many modern TVs. The integrated Harman/Kardon audio system also has Dolby Audio and DTS-HD support.
With a 0.22 ultra-short throw lens, the ViewSonic X2000B-4K smart laser projector provides a cinematic experience with the convenience of ultra-short throw projection. The X2000B-4K can be placed 10.33-inches away from a projection screen or wall and project an immersive 100-inch image. The X2000B-4K delivers 4K (3840×2160) resolution images with Rec. 709 color gamut compatibility, HDR, and HLG support.
The projector can be placed on a table, mounted to a media stand, or mounted to the ceiling, which makes for flexible setups in most rooms and environments. In addition, the X2000B-4K can deliver immersive images on projector screens, flat surfaces, and curved walls, thanks to its flexible 4-corner keystone adjustment and Warping capabilities.
In addition to the X2000B-4K, I have also done a full review of the ViewSonic X100-4K LED Smart Projector. You can check it out on Projector Reviews.
