If you make presentations to small audiences in rooms where you can turn the lights down, there is a 500 lumens DLP projector that you should consider, it is the K330 DLP LED 3D Ready Projector from Acer. At only 2.7 pounds (1.2kg), the K330 is portable, inexpensive, and comes with its own carrying pouch. Along with video and computer inputs, the K330 also sports an HDMI input for connection to digital sources that you may have access to at your presentation. You will be surprised at what a good image you get from such a small projector, and that is a strong point for the K330.

For less formal settings, the K330 performs well for family gatherings where viewing home movies or pictures from a recent vacation are the focus of the evening. It is compatible with personal devices like iPods and iPhones, and it has both SD and USB inputs which can display stored images from memory cards and thumb drives. This input versatility is uncommon in pocket projectors, and it virtually eliminates the need to have a computer connected to enjoy using the K330.

        Comments about Acer K330 DLP LED 3D Ready Projector:

        Great image in color, contrast and bright, even with a little light. Not very noisy but if you pay attention you can hear the projector. In ECO mode is very little difference in the picture and the noise is much less.
        The speaker is right for ocasinal use, but its better to conect to an audio system or headset. Very nice image in video HD and connected to the PC is good, but if you look close you can see little effect like a stair in the curves, but not noticeable from the distance you use normally.

        Comments about Acer K330 DLP LED 3D Ready Projector:

        We used the projector once so far. The picture was pretty sharp and impressive considering it's LED lit. The major drawback seems to be the lighting of the room in which you use it. If the room is completely dark, the projector does quite well. However, if there is any ambient light, the projection is washed out and no amount of tinkering could change that. All in all, for my needs, I might have gone with a different unit, but it will suffice for now.

          Comments about Acer K330 DLP LED 3D Ready Projector:

          What started out as a need for a business projector proved to be full of pleasant suprises.

          The projector is small, light, easy to travel with and is a joy to use. It shows a bright enough picture for most slightly dark conference rooms, and the automatic keystone adjustment is very handy when there is little time to perfect set up at a presentation. Even the case has a thoughtful separate pocket for the D-Sub and power cables that does not add thickness.

          If only it had a sharper lens and a less-finicky controls, it could be perfect. The lens is sharp enough but not super-sharp so that very dense spreadsheets can be displayed convincingly. I guess this is due to the native resolution being only 720p and not 1080p. The other minor inconvenience is I could never fully grasp which button is used as the "enter" button in different modes, because different buttons are assigned to act as the "enter" button in different modes.

          One last gripe: why did Acer not allow saturation and tint adjustments when connected to a PC or an SD card? Have they never heard of playing movies or projecting JPG slide shows from a PC or an SD card?

          All in all, this is a great, compact mostly-business projector. It will also delight with occasional double duty as an Home Theater projector. Had more efforts been applied to ergonomics and lens sharpness, it could well be the LED projector that should be on everyone's shortlist.

            we needed something small to take on a trip out of the country and this projector not only was small it projected 500 lumens which was very bright with a 60" image in my office with all the lights on. I was impressed with the brightness and the HDMI connectivity. I have no complaints in relation to this projector and for a great price.

            I use this projector for watching movies on an 80" screen. The resolution and color are more than good enough for watching DVD movies. There are plenty of connection options and it does a good job of showing videos and photos from SD and USB media. Using the remote with the menus requires a bit of patience especially as it tries to sync with each source. I have used the RGB (computer), and HDMI inputs as well as the SD card and USB flash drive ports and they all worked as expected. I gave it 5 stars because it is outstanding considering the price.
