Revision as of 12:47, 9 September 2006

I used projectors for meetings, geek social get-togethers, and movie watching. Currently looking for the best portable projector for these purposes.

My bias is towards LCD, which on all models offers rich colours, no rainbow effect, and a sharper image (I actually kinda like the screendor effect, though it's rarely an issue these days). But I'm willing to try DLP since the lightest models are DLP and it offers better contrast.

Epson PowerLite 700c

Paid a fortune for this projector - used even - in 2001 so I could throw multimedia parties where people could pass a keyboard around. Good robust portable projector for its time, though it was noisy. Dust particles are also a constant problem.

Sold it to friends who are still enjoying it.

Sanyo PLV-Z3

Got this from Eastporters - who don't seem to have such compelling prices these days, but do contact me if you want someone to give a referral fee to. :)


  • - Was never really blown away by video quality
  • - overall was quiet, but had a rattley noise from some angles
  • - design was ugly.
  • + Nice remote control and controls.
  • A more standard resolution for computers would be nice.

Was stolen. :(

Future projector

I want to get something more portable now, but is still not distractingly inferior for video.

Projected Projector

  • + LED projectors are an interesting trend - bulbs offer lower cost, heat, power, quietness, more enviromentally friendly; but will be a while before the resolution and brightness are decent
  • + Higher resolution projectors should be an interesting trend as well, but always on the higher end
