Very light and small
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.
Excellent choice for anyone who both needs a portable projector and needs to travel light
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.
High quality color and great constrast ratio
Purchased this when no reviews were available on Amazon or the wider web so took a bit of a risk. I had an old Optoma which claimed 3000 lumens, so I was a little concerned this unit wouldn't be bright. In fact, It's amazing.
Things I love:
* Tiny, literally, it's a true micro projector. Fits in palm of hand .
* Very bright, widescreen display, even at 4m in a light room. Incredible given size of projector .
* Easy setup and remote for keystone etc .
Definitely worth considering if you are a looking for something that can be used both at home or on the road
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.
Wide range of features, but such flexibility comes at a high price
The Optoma ML550 certainly has a wide range of features, but such flexibility comes at a high price. It's much more expensive than the Asus P1M, but we think the ML550 justifies the extra expense as it not only connects to a far greater range of devices, but it can also be used in all types of lighting conditions. It wins a Best Buy award.
May fit in your hand, but has the capabilities of a behemoth
The ML550 is an extremely portable and very efficient projector. It's light and compact, making it great for anyone who needs to do presentations on the go. Despite it's small size, the ML550 delivers some great picture quality without compromise, and though it may be priced a bit higher than other projectors in its range, itâ??s certainly a worthwhile investment.
Highly innovated device, specially designed to meet your present and future needs
The Optoma ML550 excels in key features, and it offers additional features that will make your presentation a success. This highly innovated device is specially designed to meet your present and future needs. This is the brand that will help you deliver the best presentation ever.
Works great with both PC and Mac
I just received this projector from Dell, opened the box and marveled at how small, i.e.: portable, it is. It weighs .8 pounds and easily fits in the palm of your hand. It's extremely easy to use with a PC - it comes configured to simply plug and play using an included VGA cable. Be sure your computer has a VGA port, or you'll have to figure out a work around for a connection.
Good shadow detail, solid black level, and well-saturated color
The Acer H5370BD is perhaps the least expensive way to bring 3D into your home. At $549, this 720p projector is equipped for both home video and home theater, and its highly adjustable light output makes it easy to go from the living room to the darkened theater without a second thought.
Perfect for multiple machines
I recently used this projector on a training class and was impressed that it transferred over seamlessly from HDMI on my laptop to a VGA output from my iPad in just a couple of steps.
Great price for a projector that is bright enough to display in a classroom with a lot of windows and light.
Picture quality is a little less crisp
I really like this projector. It has a very good HD picture. The picture quality is a little less crisp then my 1080p TV. The projector has a 768p as far as I have read. The sound is good. You can use a computer on this projector, and a free computer cable is included in the box. It comes with a remote with free batteries. There is an a/v hookup and an s-video hookup. There is a mini USB hookup as well. I am only using a BLU ray player with my projector.
Colors were bright, vibrant, and well saturated in all preset modes
For anyone who needs an inexpensive projector, the Epson EX3212 offers a lot to like, starting with its excellent data image quality, above par video quality, and bright image. Only slightly less important are the wide range of brightness levels, a long lamp life, and the low price.
It helps too that it doesn't have any serious weaknesses. The back panel may not have all the connectors you'd like, for example, but it has all the ports you're likely to need.
Nice features for a fairly low price projector
First, this is a very good projector. The image quality and features are excellent. The quality of construction is disappointing, but I suppose you would have to spend a lot more to get one that feels like it's not going to fall apart.. Keep that in mind while you read the following and then I'll get back to the review.
