      Comments about ViewSonic PLED-W500 Ultra-Portable LED Projector:

      This is exactly what I hoped it would be. Extremely compact and portable, but bright enough to project for 10 people. If you need to project to a larger group, you will need a brighter projector, but in an intimate setting in a smaller space, this projector works perfectly.

      I use this projector in a medium sized photo studio environment for photography instruction. I have not attempted to calibrate this projector with my i1 gear, so I don't know how "correct" the projection can be.
