Great brightness, lightweight, easy to use, all for a very reasonable cost
I love this projector. Not only does it give a great image with great brightness, but it is also very thin, lightweight and easy to carry around. Zoom capability is somewhat limited, but does help in adjusting screen size once you get about the right distance. Speakers in the unit are limited, and unfortunately there is no audio out, so you have to hook up audio from your laptop audio out (that worked just great for a recent video presentation with over 200 people in a large hall).
Lots to like in a small package
Not as small as most pico projectors, but still smaller than most other portable projectors. Very nice to have an internal battery - I haven't tested to see if it lasts the full 90 minutes, but I didn't see the typical lowering of brightness when on battery as compared to being plugged in to AC. Also nice, the power brick is pretty small.
Lots of connectivity options for a small projector...HDMI or VGA for cables, then also has microSD slot and USB for a thumb drive.
Perfect for family room home theater
Used it the first time on Thanksgiving, watching football and BlueRay movies. Bought it with a 100 inch "portable" screen. It is hard to beat, despite the limited audio. Receiver and remote work like a charm and even just hooking up a simple Ipod boom-box resulted in great sound in our family room. Portability and ease of setup are difficult to beat. Not sure if the 720p resolution is a downside... it sure beats the 42 inch 1080p LG TV that I bought for the same price.
Image quality is very good
With a $499 list price and little in the way of street price discounts, the ASUS P1 is not the least expensive projector in the 200-lumen category. However, it is one of the smallest and lightest, and that goes a long way when lugging a projector around. It lacks a built-in speaker and has no HDMI input, but it does a nice job with both data and video images. The P1's two-year warranty is double that of its closest competitors. It should be considered seriously by mobile presenters.
Excellent compact projector for travel
Overall, I'm very satisfied with the performance, portability, and quality of this projector. My main reason for deducting it one star is because of the lack of additional inputs. If it had an HDMI input, I would easily give it five stars. The rest of the cons are really just little things that would have made it that much better, so I'm not deducting any stars for them. I plan on traveling more with it for providing training slides and videos.
Elegant palm-size design, Bright image
The ASUS P1 Portable LED Projector delivers a bright and sharp image in a compact design. Business travelers need a projector that's small enough to carry, but big enough to lend impact to their presentations. The $499 ASUS P1 Portable LED Projector fills those needs well, offering a bright image and easy-to-use controls in a sturdy, subdued package.
Long-life LED lamp, DLP chip, comparatively bright
The P1's most annoying shortcoming is that it only has a VGA input via its own special cable. We think not including an HDMI port is a big mistake, as newer equipment has largely ditched VGA. There's also no card reader or USB ports, so you can't play media files or a slideshow directly.
Excellent pricing on lamps for Epson Brighter Future customers
Overall, Epson has produced a ultra short throw interactive projector that is easy to use, easy to set up, and is priced right. Street prices put this projector at $2199. If you're a university, or K-12, you will want to ask your dealer about the Epson Brighter Futures program. Discounts on pricing and lamps are available for the education market. One final note, Epson has a fleet of interactive projectors in different resolutions and brightness levels.
Good audio quality, Better than par video quality
The 485Wi offers more than enough in its core features to make it a strong contender, with a bright image, near excellent to excellent data image quality, better than par video for a data projector, 1280x800 native resolution, and a suitably short throw for an ultra short throw projector.
I bought the Epson PowerLite 1776w to install in a client boardroom. The device is mounted on the ceiling through a generic ceiling mount (not included), we were up and running in seconds, the connectivity options include VGA, Wifi, HDMI and USB (the lack of Ethernet is a minus). The setup was quick with any of these.
Pretty good color, right out of the box, even better post calibration
This Epson 710HD is a good starter home projector, or just a fun projector for the family to share. It's going to be fine for the casual consumer, but not the enthusiast. There are a number of real strengths, and a few weaknesses. Well, if everything was great on entry level projectors we wouldn't need more expensive ones.
In summary, I love this projector. I am sensitive to rainbows and sold my DLP projector to get this one. I couldn't be happier as I can focus on the movies now and not get distracted by the rainbow effect. Don't let forums or reviews convince you that you NEED 1080p. 720 looks phenomenal with blu-ray and you won't be disappointed. Use the extra 300-400 dollars you save in not getting a decent 1080p projector, and get a nice screen or lots of blu-rays.

Sweet Little Thing
Overall, this little guy is an excellent portable projector. The complaints I have are relatively minor and can often won't be a concern for someone using this with a laptop (for example, one could use the laptop speakers instead). The device is pricey but compared to the competition plus the convenience and features of this device, I think the price seems reasonable.
Excellent picture quality by pocket PJ standards
Ever since we saw our first pocket projector we've been seduced by the idea of tiny light boxes capable of producing big images but have routinely been let down by the reality of the dull, soft pictures pocket projectors so often produce.
Finally, though, in the 3M MP410 we truly have a product that delivers our dream combination of a pocket-sized form factor and pictures bright and contrast-rich enough to not only be purely functional but also actually enjoyable. Well done, 3M.
Colours aren't reproduced accurately
Image quality is very disappointing with the 3M MP410. We rarely see contrast this low and colour fidelity so far off the mark. Given its high price, we were expecting more. All in all, you're better off waiting for the technology to develop a bit more before investing in this kind of projector.
