    If you are looking for a small portable projector for the road to watch movies with or play files from a compact flash drive or SD card, then this could be the solution for you. If you need real clarity and you plan on spending many hours using this projector with groups, then make sure the content you are showing is large and graphical. It is definitely not the best choice for demonstrating financial planning in an excel spreadsheet. Read below for a recap of the pros and cons of the Optoma ML500.


  • The emerging new category the ML500 is part of, and the ML500 in particular, fills a niche that needs filling, with an appealing balance of size, weight, price, and brightness. Compared to pocket projectors, it's only a little bigger and heavier, but it's a lot brighter. Compared to traditional lamp-based portable projectors, it's significantly lighter and smaller than all but a few, and less expensive. And although it isn't as bright as most lamp-based projectors, it's bright enough to throw a reasonable size image that can stand up to ambient light.


  • I found the Optoma ML500 to be a very interesting projector to use. It compact size makes it fairly easy to set up and it offers a variety of source inputs, as well as having its own built-in speaker. The ML500 also makes a great traveling companion as it and its accessories easily pack up it in its provided carry bag. You can also take a camera tripod along and use it mount and place the projector more easily in a variety of environments.

    In addition, its light output and video performance is adequate for general use, but it does fall somewhat short as a dedicated home theater projector.


  • The Dell M900HD is a powerful, compact projector that packs a variety of presenting features into a tiny package. Its 30,000-hour LED light engine removes the need for lamp replacements, thereby reducing the number of things that can go wrong while you're out on the road. It has best-in-class connectivity thanks to its creative implementations of USB and WiFi projection.


  • The Dell M900HD is a small, featherweight projector that's brighter than most of the LED-based mini-projectors we've seen in recent years.


  • The Dell M900HD is incredibly portable, and very convenient if you have a suitably equipped laptop, phone or tablet. It does get pretty hot, and a few more ANSI lumens would increase its versatility. Nonetheless, it compares very favourably to other similar models on the market, and will prove a great option for mobile executives and large businesses needing a projector that can service several rooms.


  • The Dell M115HD palmtop projector gets a boost in The Dell M115HD palmtop projector gets a boost in brightness over its predecessor, and has a good range of connection choices.


  • The Optoma ZX212ST business projector offers a lower brightness rating than is typical for its price and size, but the hybrid laser-LED light source saves on the total cost of ownership.


  • The LG PA75U LED Projector is beautifully designed and is the perfect substitution for those who cannot afford an expensive television set over 50â?³. I set my projector at 80â?³, but I tested it up to 120" and the picture resolution is still nice to stare at.
    You can easily save money by purchasing this projector instead of a new 3D TV. You can get this projector for $649. You cannot find a great 3D TV at that price. So, I definitely recommend this projector for those who cannot afford a 50â?³ 3D TV or larger.
