The Vankyo V600 is an entry level projector boasting full HD at a price point mostly filled with HD and below projections. It supports two HDMI cables and even includes an SD card slot, aiming it squarely at the budget home theater market; FHD is exceptionally rare at this price point, and its set of features is meant for media consumption above all else. It\u2019s arguably the best long throw projector in the budget sector just by virtue of its high resolution alone.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Vankyo V600\r\nThe Vankyo V600 (also known as the Vankyo Performance V600) is a solid budget projector that offers good picture quality at a low price point. Its lack of zoom is unfortunate to see, but overall it\u2019s very hard to go wrong at $200.\r\n\r\nPerformance\/Resolution Etc.\r\nSimply being 1080p scores the Vankyo V600 projector a major win in the picture quality department; its screen output is sharp, gets decently bright, and is overall good enough for casual gaming, media consumption, etcetera. It\u2019s no BenQ TK850 Projector for sure, but it\u2019s not trying to be; for $200, there\u2019s very little to ask for.\r\nBrightness\/Lumens\r\nBrightness is decent on the Vankyo V600, but Vankyo\u2019s lumen measurement is inaccurate; Vankyo claims 6000 lumens, but when compared side by side with ~3500 lumen projectors like the ViewSonic 4K Projector or ViewSonic LS700 4K Laser Projector, it appears far dimmer and more washed out in the same lighting. Misleading claims aside, brightness is still good enough; like with most projectors, image quality is best in dark or dim rooms, and will appear dimmer and increasingly washed out the brighter the lighting in the room is.\r\nAdjustability\/Viewing Angle\r\nWith no zoom to speak of and a very mediocre focus knob, the Vankyo V600 doesn\u2019t have much in the way of adjustability. Port selection is at least nice, bringing several HDMI inputs and audio jacks to the table, but the lack of zoom really cripples its otherwise great performance for the price.\r\nDurability\r\nDespite mediocre build quality, durability is decent on the Vankyo V600; some units demonstrate an odd color inversion flaw after extended use, but this problem isn\u2019t widespread and is fixed with a reboot. Lamp life is rated at just shy of 11,000 hours, meaning the bulb burning out isn\u2019t much of a concern during its reasonable lifespan, either; it could last half of that figure and still be incredible value considering it\u2019s only $200.\r\nValue\r\nLike many entry level products, value is the Vankyo V600\u2019s primary selling point. There are very, very, very few 1080p projectors at the $200 price point; many claim 1080p support, but support is the keyword there--they accept a 1080p signal and then downscale it to their lower native resolution. Very little is even coming close to this at $200, and it\u2019s worth springing up the extra cash for this projector versus projectors that come in at even half of its price. If you have limited space, consider purchasing the Optoma GT1080Darbee, since it has a short throw lens.\r\nVankyo V600 Wrap Up\r\nThe Vankyo V600 is a phenomenal budget projector despite some annoying flaws. Lack of zoom is an annoying oversight on a projector, and the color inversion bug that plagues some units is inconvenient if you get a unit that demonstrates said problem. Even so, at the end of the day, it\u2019s not only $200, but it\u2019s a $200 1080p projector; its value alone is nearly unmatched, and it\u2019s a very solid buy just all around.
