Summary: Personal Experience Very light portable LED projector and good looking. Instant turn on/off without worry about lamp damage. Could be mounted on tripod. Unfortunately its menu is unintuitive and looks like from MS DOS era. Diamond shape pixels make plain text blurred so it's unsuitable for using as PC screen. I used it as a cheap home theater projector. 500 lumens is sufficient to watch movies at 130' size on wall in total darkness.
Summary: I was looking for something to replace my projector because my light bulb went out. It was going to cost me 250.00 + labor so I decided to go with a led type of set up. I saw this and looked up the specs and for the price I decided to purchase this. It was fast shipping, got it in three days. When I open it up I was shocked how little it was. At first I thought I made a big mistake because I need one to project a picture on a 102 inch screen.
Summary: shipment was in time. But i had a small problem with the remote control. I figured a hardware part was broken. I sent a email on the same day and they generated a ticket and asked me to send it back and i got the replacement was very quick. i didn't expect all this to happen on the very next day. I didn't pay a single penny extra sending the product back. Very good service and the product is working fine. I didn't have any problem till now.
Summary: I mounted this small projector on a ceiling and I'm getting a 100 inch image. The performance is very good and maybe a little bit noisy the fan. I was expecting a little bit more light power but is enough for my needs, I don't know why they don't make a 1000 ANSI led even if they have to increase the device size. The menu (icons) for the memory and USB features seems o be like Atari graphics but it works OK. I recommend this small toy.
A tiny, no compromise projector that performs like the big boys!

Summary: I've been looking for a compact, travel projector that renders color and B&W photographs accurately and the PLED-W500 fits the bill. It renders an image on par with my much larger Epson projector with a surprisingly bright image (in small group venues) for such a tiny package. It has adequate color, contrast and brightness controls but unfortunately lacks a zoom lens which is a minor issue. Periodic offers from Tiger Direct made this projector a decent deal.
Summary: I needed sometime before I can really give a performance rating on this product. It's working great but after a month i have a power off problem. I tried to search & read as well other reviews if they have the same issues or problems and found it true. Yes, after month of occasional use, i started to experience power off problem. I could not power off using either remote or directly on the unit.
