With its quality performance and total lack of respect for ambient light, the Vankyo Performance V600 is a clear runner-up to the best projector for bright rooms, the Viewsonic PX747. The Vankyo V600 is also among the best ceiling-mounted projectors; truly, it makes a fantastic upgrade to your viewing experience.

Why We Like It – Vankyo Performance V600 Review

The Vankyo Performance V600 offers full HD resolution and a staggering maximum brightness on a large screen, along with quality stereo speakers and plenty of connections. You simply can’t go wrong with this quality home theater system.

  • Full HD native resolution
  • Extremely bright
  • Quality built-in speakers
  • No horizontal keystone correction
  • No lens shift


Similar to the Vankyo Leisure 3, the Vankyo Performance V600 Projector offers great image quality with full HD 1080p native resolution and a not-too-shabby 5,000:1 contrast ratio; unless you require a 4K projector, the display quality of the Vankyo V600 is more than good enough for the average consumer, and guarantees a satisfactory performance. If you just gotta have the best resolution, the BenQ TK800 or the Acer H7850 are both excellent alternatives, both sporting 4K resolution at a decent price, or the Optoma Projector with a 50,000:1 contrast ratio.


While the Vankyo Performance V600 has no shortage of quality features, its greatest attribute is easily its incredible maximum brightness; 6,000 lumens will outshine all but the brightest rooms, making daylight viewing a breeze and nighttime viewing a bright and clear experience like no other. Ambient light stands no chance against this beast, and very few other projectors can offer a comparable maximum brightness at the same price point.

Adjustability/Viewing Angle

The Vankyo Performance V600 promises the optimal viewing experience with a focus wheel and vertical keystone correction, though these both must be set manually. Unfortunately, the Vankyo V600 does not have horizontal keystone correction or any lens shift feature, though this is the projector’s only true flaw. Quality built-in stereo with the option to switch to external speakers ensures you will have the best sound quality, and the screen size can be adjusted up to 300”.


The frame of the Vankyo Performance V600 is sturdy but light, sporting connections for an HDMI cable, an AV cable, an SD card, and more. It even comes with a convenient carrying case for easy transport. The bulb has an impressive average lifespan of 50,000 hours, boasting over a decade of use for the average user. The product also comes with a 90-day full refund return policy, as well as 3 years of free repair and lifetime customer service and technical support, guaranteeing a fully functional machine for years to come.


With a relatively low price tag for a slew of features, connections, and high-quality performance, the Vankyo Performance V600 Projector is clearly an exceptional value. While many 4K projectors will run thousands of dollars, this full HD projector delivers bright, clear pictures with quality sound, a long life, and a generous warranty, all for just under $200. For the average consumer looking for an excellent projector without breaking the bank, the Vankyo V600 is a beacon of quality and value, and will impress all but the most critical of viewers.

Vankyo Performance V600 Wrap Up

The only caveat of the Vankyo V600 is that it only has good instead of great adjustability options. For its low price point, this home theater system will provide quality HD images and stereo sound, and will function as well in daylight as it will in darkness. Overall, this projector is an incredible value and should be considered by anyone looking to enhance their viewing experience with a projector.
