Don, Norwich

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very clear and bright picture and very intuitive to use. Extremely light and portable.
Bad points:
Lens is very wide angle which means a large image is produced from a short distance. This can be useful in a small venue but I think this could make this projector unsuitable for large venues where it may be fixed in position. This is not clear in the product information which I think it should be. Come to that lens angle not a feature clear with many projectors' information/data.

Features at a glance
3LCD – A sophisticated, innovative technology that utilises 3 chips to deliver vibrant, true-to-life and consistent images for the most demanding audiences.

Blackboard/Whiteboard Mode – Projecting onto coloured or shiny backgrounds can make images appear either dull or uncomfortably bright. This mode ensures optimal brightness whether the screen is black, green or shiny white.

PC-less Presentations – Simply plug in a memory stick, SD card, or even a portable hard disk drive and present without the need of a laptop.

Quick On/OffQuick On/Off – Plug in, turn on and present. The Quick On/Off feature and automatic resolution equals fast set-up.

Input Source Naming – Personalise devices and inputs to the projector – for example, re-name a device input to “Tom’s Laptop” for easy recognition.

Vertical Keystone Correction – Correct misaligned images automatically with vertical keystone correction.

On Screen Display (OSD) – The new menu is much easier to use. Navigating through the different options is easier, whilst settings are clearly named.
