Excerpt: This article first appeared at V3.co.uk ViewSonic's PLED-W500 projector is designed to meet the needs of business users who need to give presentations when out on the road and is also suitable for home use. It has a small frame that packs some impressive specifications, including a 500 lumens LED lamp, 1280x800 native resolution and up to 80in picture size. However, the device is let down by sub-par performance and a high price tag.
Excerpt: The ViewSonic PLED-W500 is a projector finished in an expensive-looking glossy black with posh silver trim that helps project a smart, executive image even before you turn it on. It's tremendously portable – a little smaller and lighter than a copy of ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'. In paperback. It's bundled with a rather fetching soft case with ample room for its associated cabling.
