We have so much fun projecting this onto my 100" collapsible screen while outside movie nights or pay-per view fights. I also use it on dj gigs (sometimes in rear projecting mode). It's still going strong considering its been knocked off a tripod several times.
Whenever possible, I'll use a camera shoe to strap the projector to patios or my light truss. My old projector is way brighter than this led projector but the bulb needs constant replacement, specially when bounced around on gigs.
I find this led projector to be a good compromise as long as its playing in a dark environment. I'm definitely also purchasing the new short-throw model.
This is truly an amazing projector as long as it's used within its limitations.
Why only 4 stars then? Well I guess a little adjustment for angle would be useful in the bottom front like slide projectors used to have - granted the unit is so small you can just stack books or something under it so this is not a biggy. Due maybe to size it takes a micro SD card instead of a standard SD card. I would have liked to be able to plug in a standard one. I have not tried using a card reading hub to see if that might work - if it does I would be really happy.
Please note - this rating is just my first impression for what I think will be a great unit. Also if you are in a small apartment or just don't have room for a big screen tv this unit projects even in 3 D and you can feed in video and such - I have not tried all these features yet - who knows I might get rid of my TV and just enjoy the home theater experience with this little unit.
I had sold the ML500 because the fan was very noisy, and some movies played from USB with noticeable delays.
I purchased ASUS B1M seeing its 700 lumen rating and got it for an offer during Thanksgiving.
The ASUS B1M was silent, ran cool. But it didn't justify the 700 lumen it claimed. ML500 seemed better to me considering the color performance and movie performance.
So a bit disappointed with ASUS B1M and based on my previous experience with Optoma, I decided to buy ML550.
Here is what I like.
-Small size, can easily fit to a small bag
-Not noisy as ML500. Noise is not distracting for me while watching movies
-A budget projector for watching movies, photos
Here is what I wished I would have had
-You should consider ML750 if budget allows
Now to the cons
-The Audio out is not of good listening experience, if you are an audiophile. Certain frequencies seems to be restricted.
Rather use a DVD/BD player and take the Audio Output.
-The focus is tricky. I sometimes find one edge of the screen to be out of focus.
-Optoma seems to have removed some menu options for adjusting color when compared to ML500
Overall I am satisfied with the purchase
