A quick internet search of tech website reviews proves that the BenQ MP620c 2000 Lumen DLP Projector is not only meeting but exceeding the expectations of all who test and purchase it. It's been described as everything from having "outstanding quality" to being "well worth the cost." The exterior is nice: square and regular, a blue color with an aluminum lens chamber that is protected by a removable cap and aluminum buttons. But don't let the simple exterior fool you, this projector has many great features.

The projector has lots of room for connections including a D-Sub in and a D-sub out, analog, S-video, a 3.5 mm audio jack, a centrally located DVI-I dual link in, and a USB mini(B) jack. Resolution is 1024 x 768 (XGA). Video goes up to 1080i. The projector also has a 2w speaker with great sound. Light source power is 285 Watts, contrast is 700:1 (static), while brightness is 2000:1 ANSI Lumen. Distance range is 3.28 -36.08 feet. The projector also has various picture modes, key lock to prevent accidental shut-down, on-screen alerts and timers, eco-mode technology, SRGB color profile, freeze frame, and auto input search. It is compatible with both Mac and PC. Its rebooting time is fast and its twin fans manage to cool down the projector without being too loud.

The Toshiba TDP-F10U

toshiba tdp-f10uThe Toshiba TDP-F10U is an interesting new little projector to consider if you are looking for the latest in palmtops. At 1.4 pounds, it is relatively lightweight compared to other leading palmtops and has many fascinating features to consider.

One of the most useful things about the TDP-F10U is its ability to show JPEG files from an SD memory card or a USB memory key. This means that you can take your presentation, covert it to a JPEG file, store it on a card or key, and then present it through the TDP-F10U without needing a computer. This makes the palmtop extra portable.

The light source of the TDP-F10U is a DLP chip combined with LEDs. The LEDs are rated at about 20,000 hours, which should last the life of the projector. This is an important fact to consider because most standard projector lamps cost $200 or more to replace. A lifetime light source could save a lot of money in that area of future repairs.

The set up of the TDP-F10U is very simple and easy to understand. At the back of the projector there is a RCA phono plug for composite video, a VGA connector for hooking up a computer, an SD card slot, and a USB port. To get the projector up and running all that you have to do is plug in the power cord, utilize one of the connector points, the card slot, or the USB port, and you are ready to go. To make your experience even more laid back and simplified, use the credit card size remote to control all the functions of the projector.

One criticism of the TDP-F10U is that it lacks good audio. For business presentations with no sound, this shouldn’t be an issue, but for anything that might require audio you will definitely need a separate sound system.

You can get the TDP-F10U for around $600. I think that it seems like a pretty decent value for the features that it includes. Yeah, the sound isn’t perfect, but with its lifetime light source and useful qualities, I think the TDP-F10U would be a satisfying buy.

Light Blue Optic's New Projector Development

Light Blue Optics announced that they will be demonstrating their latest technological development in miniature projection systems to their key customers and partners at Display Week in San Antonio, Texas. Utilizing their holographic laser projection technology, Light Blue Optics has created a small accessory projector that produces bright high quality video and WVGA-QVGA images. This amazing little projector can produce 10 lumens or more depending on the content being displayed. Because of the laser-based technology, you no longer have to worry about focusing the content shown for a clear presentation. Images stay focused at any distance from the projector. This projector also features an optical architecture that allows the system to be safe under all normal uses. It meets the most rigorous Class 1 laser safety qualifications and has opened up a variety of high-volume applications in consumer electronics.

Another fascinating feature of this new little projector is its ability to switch from the typical wall projection to a newly developed table down projection mode. In this mode, the projector is placed on the table and the display is projected down onto the table in front of it. The user is then able to view and present their material in a more accessible way without having to hold the projector steady in their hand the entire time. An additional configuration of the projector will allow the user to interact with multimedia content. With this astounding feature, any flat surface can instantly be turned into an interactive touch-sensitive display.

Light Blue Optics has most definitely made leap and bounds in the development of projectors. This amazing new projector incorporates the latest holographic laser technology with new display modes and touch-sensitive interaction. I can’t think of what could be more useful than this fantastic projector and can’t wait till it is finally released.
