Acer SmartFormat Technology
Conveniently supports comprehensive wide-format PC signals. Users no longer need to worry about annoying "Signal not supported" issues, nor must they change the resolution of their wide-format notebook.

Acer projectors featuring ColorSafe are virtually immune to color decay, such as the yellow or green tint on images displayed by some projectors that have been used for extended periods of time. Acer projectors take advantage of DLP technology to guarantee picture integrity despite prolonged use. The extended lifespan and consistent image quality lower the total cost of ownership and translate to big savings.

Instant Pack
If the user is in a hurry to leave, the power cord can be unplugged right after the projector is turned off, without any resulting damage. There's no need to wait for a cooling period; the user can pack up the projector and leave immediately.

Quick Start
The projector starts projecting within 5 seconds after the USB cable being connected to the laptop PC

Acer projectors are compliant with the most up-to-date Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems

Display over USB (DoUSB, USB3.0)
With the advanced USB 3.0 standard, the projector delivers world leading display performance which the image on the screen of the PC can be smoothly projected as soon as the USB cable is connected to the projector from a PC.

Sealed Optical Engine
With the Sealed Optical Engine design, the projector can be prevented from the accumulation of dust or even smoke, which may seriously impact the optical performance, resulting the reduced brightness and faded color of the displayed image

3 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

Pros: Very portable, extremely light weight, plug and play and minimum to no software installation.

Cons: Not very bright. Will not impress people in a moderate to bright room. It is ok for occasional power points in a smaller room but if you're looking to watch videos, review high quality pictures, etc, spend more money and get something else.

Other Thoughts: Not bad for the value, but don't expect to be blown away by brightness.

3 out of 5 eggsMisleading Title

Pros: Extremely small and lightweight.
Only 1 cable is needed to get it to work with a PC.
Bright and clear picture.
Easy to use after initial installation.

Cons: No HDMI input/output
Painful Installation. My PC would not install this thing for the longest time. I Googled the issue and found a reviewer who had the same issue and she said she had to reboot the computer and projector several times before the Auto start program ran and the projector began working. So that is what I did - just kept rebooting till finally they paired, after that I just had to plug the USB cable into the PC and within a few seconds the projector would mirror the PC screen.

Other Thoughts: While the projector is dead simple to use (plug in and focus - no buttons at all), which is great because I bought this for my 60 year old mother and it is extremely light and projects pretty well, I am very disappointed because the title of this projector states that there is a USB and HDMI connection. I can assure you this projector cannot in any way interface with HDMI. It goes through USB only - which means it will only work on windows, no tablets, macs or smartphones. This is a huge oversight on Newegg's part that I have never witnessed in the many years that I have purchased from them.

4 out of 5 eggsPortable, Lightweight, Decent picture

Pros: This is very light and compact. Easy to set up and could probably fit in a front pocket for a walk across the office. The picture size is good(and very good for its size) but don't expect a movie theater screen.

Cons: Only one input, a very short USB3(attached to device's only port) to USB2(to your computer/device) chord. So short that it actually couldn't reach to my computer from where I wanted to set it on my desk. I would strongly recommend buying a USB extension chord or adapter if you plan to use it with a dvd player.
