Optoma ML550, WXGA, 500 LED Lumens, 3D-Ready Mobile Projector

Palm-sized Projection Powerhouse

The Optoma ML550 is an incredibly small LED projector with the power and performance of a larger unit. Delivering an impressive 500 lumens and 10,000:1 contrast ratio, along with razor sharp focus and magnificent color accuracy, the ML550 will make your presentations stand out. Designed for traveling professionals, the Optoma ML550 is small in size and strong in performance and reliability. Weighing in at 14.1 oz., this projector is ultra-portable and easy to use. Its LED light source is rated to last over 20,000 hours, so there are no expensive bulbs to replace. It is built Optoma tough, so you know it will last for years to come.

Features:

  • Incredibly small and unbelievably bright
  • 3D-Ready for the most amazing, immersive 3D viewing experience
  • Wireless presentation capability via optional BI-EXTBGN adapter
  • VGA and HDMI inputs - Connect to laptops, tablet computers (such as iPads), Blu-ray players, and game systems to display content

Incredible Power, Efficiency, and Durability in a Single Solution

The Optoma ML550 provides a compact design and vivid LED performance. Designed by the leader in LED-based projection, the ML550 sets a new standard for brightness at 500 ANSI Lumens. LED brightness cannot be easily compared to lamp-based brightness. LED brightness lets users create larger images in rooms with more light while still allowing for easy viewing. With a wider color gamut than standard lamp projectors, the ML550 delivers more vivid colors. Delivering Native WXGA resolution, this projector creates crisp, clear widescreen images of up to 100 inches on most surfaces. This DLP Pico projector allows users to share detailed presentations (with 10,000:1 contrast ratio) without being hooked up to a computer.

Weighing in at less than 14.1oz and measuring a compact 4.1 x 1.5 x 4.2 inches, the ML550 supports the following video signals: HDTV (up to 1080p), NTSC, and PAL. Computer compatibility includes resolutions up to WXGA (1280 x 800) through VGA and HD (1920 x 1080) through HDMI.

User controls and media navigation are provided through an innovative on-screen menu. User support is available in 16 languages. The ML550 is 3D ready, delivering XGA resolution 120HZ thru the VGA port (the equivalent of 3D-PC). The projector can deliver a 50-inch 3D image with plenty of brightness.

LED Design Advantage

The ML550's LED technology delivers low power consumption that creates 100" images with less than half the power a typical 42-inch LCD television uses. The same LED technology provides vivid color, durability, and long life that make the projector attractive to price-sensitive small business and consumer users.

The LED light source has an estimated lifetime of more than 20,000 hours (equivalent to using the projector four hours every day for over thirteen years). LED is incredibly cost effective compared to lamp-based projectors. For example, users with a lamp-based projector would have to replace the lamp in the projector at least four times over 20,000 hours, compared to the completely maintenance-free LED lamp.

The LED-based design, in addition to having low power usage and eliminating the use of mercury and other hazardous materials, allows for cool operation which in turn allows for the compact size.

Leading the DLP Market in the Americas

Optoma Technology is the leading manufacturer of Texas Instrument's DLP projectors in North and South America. TI's DLP features multi-color processing to produce accurate and vibrant colors on the screen.

Optoma's product line offers products designed to meet the needs of any user, from mobile professionals, gamers, and people with home theaters to much larger theater installations. Designed and built to deliver reliability, usability and image quality, Optoma projectors help users get the most out of their digital content, encourage collaboration, and communicate clearly and effectively. Optoma projectors are designed to provide the features that you need today and a path to grow into other capabilities as you need them.

Green by Design

As part of the Optoma ProJect Green program, Optoma's Pico projectors incorporate LED technology. These projectors:

  • Are designed to be compact and lightweight, which ensures a reduction in the production of green house gas emissions during transportation.
  • Incorporate an LED light source. LED lamps last 20,000 hours (or 9.6 years of 40 hour per week use) for long life. LEDs produce less heat and consume less power compared to traditional projector lamps for excellent energy savings. LEDs do not contain mercury or other hazardous materials.
  • Use minimal packaging to create a smaller ecological footprint at disposal. The entire package is recyclable. In addition, the Pico's manual is delivered in digital format on the projector's internal memory to eliminate paper printouts.
  • Comply with RoHS standards by eliminating lead and other hazard materials.

What's in the Box?

This package includes the Optoma ML550, WXGA, 500 LED Lumens, 3D-Ready Mobile Projector, AC Power Adaptor, AC Power Cord, Universal-to-VGA Cable, Carrying Case, Remote Control, Battery for Remote, and Quick Start Card.

Size Name: 500 Lumens Verified Purchase
Purchased this when no reviews were available on Amazon or the wider web so took a bit of a risk. I had an old optoma which claimed 3000 lumens, so I was a little concerned this unit wouldn't be bright. In fact, It's amazing.

Things I love:

* Tiny, literally, it's a true micro projector. Fits in palm of hand.
* Very bright, widescreen display, even at 4m in a light room. Incredible given size of projector.
* Easy setup and remote for keystone etc.
* High quality color and great constrast ratio

Things I don't love:

* It has a couple of small fans which create a high pitched sound all the time, to varying levels (depending on screen mode). During quieter parts in movies or TV it's noticeable.

Overall, this projector creates an incredible display from a tiny package and I'd highly recommend it to anyone in a smaller room or who travels a lot.

Size Name: 700 Lumens Verified Purchase
The Optoma ML750 700 lumen 3D portable LED projector is an amazing piece of technology. The first impression out of the box is how small it is and how light it is. The projector comes with a very nice travel zip-up bag with the Optoma logo on it, a small power supply that comes apart at the power box so it is a total of 2 cords. A universal in to VGA out with an audio in. Even if you don't use this to connect to a computer you can plug in universal and bring audio in. The last thing is a very nice controller which has all the functions that you can use on the machine. I also bought a Sunpak SPK620786 5-Inch Flex Leg Mini-Spider Tripod which fits it perfect and works very well to hold it up and change angles.

I connected via Macbook Pro retina through the HDMI port on the back. I changed input to HDMI and it matched my screen within 5 seconds. I first used it in my office which is very bright and I projected from about 10 ft back and I had an amazing, bright beautiful picture of my computer screen which is a stock Apple image with vibrant colors. I was amazed at how bright it is and how good the picture is. I then played a video from netflix to test the sound and the speakers are ok for a small group of people but not good enough for a good action movie in your house. I would just use the audio from your input device or from the universal cord with audio in. The keystone correction works very well but usually you don't need it, keystone is always a salesman pitch but when its on your wall you don't really care that it is a little bigger on the top than the bottom, trust me.

I looked for about 2 weeks for which projector I wanted.

In broad daylight easy to see picture.

Size Name: 700 Lumens Verified Purchase
Length: 6:18 Mins
I was originally looking at a pocket projector when I saw them at brookstone under their own name. The ones they had worked reasonably well up to 60" in a very dark area. I did a little more research and found they just came out with a newer model that is 300lumens, and saw it up close, and it works much better, then I did a little internet research and found there are a LOT of choices in the 300-400 lumen range. Then I found this optoma projector, and saw it was available in 500 and 700 lumens which is unheard of for a pocket projector. Unsure of what I really needed, I decided to play it safe and order the 700 lumen model. Picture quality is amazing, projects 50-60" in a brightly lit room, and 100-120" in a dark room, HD quality picture. Also has a built in media player where you can throw a bunch of DivX movies on a microSD card and it will play them completely standalone without a PC. Colors are very rich, and despite other reviews, in "cinema mode" colors are pretty accurate. I probably could have gotten away with the 500lumen version, but I am VERY happy with this projector. I also run this from a portable lithium battery pack, and can watch full length movies on a battery charge.

Update: I also got an ML1000p and have compared these projectors side by side in terms of physical size (I made a neat video to show how similar in size they REALLY are) and picture quality. Aside from a slight increase in brightness over the ML750, the ML1000p has MUCH better looking colors. There is also no major shift in focus on the ML1000p as the projector warms up that is noticeable on the ML750. The touchpad on the ML1000p is gesture based and can be a little annoying when compared with the conventional buttons on the ML750.

Size Name: 500 Lumens Verified Purchase
Very bright. Very small and light (easy to carry in my laptop bag). Very clear. Everyone who sees it and what it projects is amazed. I haven't noticed any unusual noise from the fan or anything. The colors are just what they should be, and the multiple screen resolution options are great. So far I've used the standard laptop connector to my Windows laptop and the HDMI connection to my iPad (with the digital connector from Apple), and both worked as expected. I only wish the focus was a little easier to get right across the entire image, that there was a way to manually switch the source on the projector itself (maybe there is, but I haven't found it and have to use the remote that came with it), and that there was a little adjustable leg to angle it up towards the screen (it just sits flat on the table or a pile of books, sadly no leg to angle it). But overall, I do really like it and recommend it. 4.5 stars, but since that isn't an option, I'll round it up to 5 stars because it does work well.
