The panel includes HDMI, VGA, s-video, composite, and several audio ports as well. The writers were also happy with the brightness level and the overall picture quality. But one concern that they did express was that the color looked warmer than normal, especially while watching video content. The writers were overall impressed with the performance and commented, “The Optoma EW536 is a powerful and highly practical DLP projector. Its image quality was more than acceptable, and with a quiet fan and reasonable array of ports, it’s ideal for classroom, meeting room or home use.”

Microvision SHOW WX+ Projector Review

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

The Microvision SHOW WX+ is the company’s latest pico projector. This tiny device features 15 ANSI lumens, a 5000:1 contrast ratio, and WVGA (848 x 480) resolution. Today, the writers from Skatter Tech released their review of this particular device. One of the first things the writers note is the size. The projector weighs about 0.3 lbs and is about the size of a cell phone. The writers complimented the quick easy setup and were even happy that Apple products could be connected to the projector as well. They did notice that the projector wasn’t very bright and said that if users want to get the biggest display possible then they will need a fairly dark room. One of he last comments that the writers made was, “For the most part, if you understand the limitations with the current state of pico projection technology, the SHOWWX+ will not disappoint. It makes an excellent addition to any briefcase and will definitely impress others. It is still a premium gadget and I would suggest holding off a bit longer if you are not in a rush for one. I am confident that next year’s models will be brighter and more affordable.”
