Summary: Good size and power full, you can use it with several lights on. Of course with sunlight at 12:00 it is difficult to use it, unless you close the curtains. The noise is more or less like a desktop computer with the fan working continuously.
Summary: Purchased in January 2012 from Amazon, and paid 587.99. Item description is clear that it does not have an audio output, so I knew this when I bought it. Over this long-term use, the main hassle I've had with the device is a lack of an audio output jack when I'm using the HDMI input.
Summary: I spent a lot of time tossing between this and the AAXA version. In the end, I picked this one as it was clearly 500 lumens. The AAXA, I have since discovered, is 450 Lumen (AAXA aren't very good at communicating it would seem), had I known at the time I would have probably bought that one.
Summary: I've wanted a projector for a while and finally decided to splurge on one. After finally narrowing it down to either the Epson EX 5210, Viewsonic PJD 5133, and this I decided to go with the ML500.
Summary: If you use this projector as a lightweight, portable and mobile projector, I think you will be pleasantly surprised. My typical audience would be 4-5 people in a lit conference room, projected on a wall. I purchased this primarily because it was an LED light source.
Summary: update 8-2-2012 over 1200 hours and all is well. (still shuts down every 120 hours like clockwork) previously we have had multiple pjs, our last one was a lg hs 201. this is a 5 star item...except.
Summary: Personal Experience after few hours i had fan failure why? pc fans on my pc run 24/7 and have tons of dust and never any problems "bad fan design perhaps?" Other then fan failure the features and connectivity are awesome, super bright for led version and great picture quality. Problems Fan failure
Summary: Instead of purchasing a large LCD, I opted for the portability and convenience of a projector. Like the other new LED projectors on the market, there are significant limitations to this unit, such as the lack of brightness and no optical zoom or lens-shift.
