- Portability: It's small, and although the power supply is almost as big as the projector, this model comes with a handy carrying case, which is perfect for transporting the unit and all it's components.
- Ease of use: Just plugged into the laptop and played (Vista Ultimate); no need to install any software.
- Picture quality: You have to know what your getting off this trade, meaning less lumens but much more hours and no need to replace lamps. The brightness is enough to fit small group presentations (which is my company's bread and butter) although it may not be fit to a bigger audience. I would recommend to be aware of this and purchase another (Infocus, perhaps?) with more lumens to host large group presentations.
- Form factor: It looks very professional on its glossy black color. True it can hold a fingerprint stain (or two) but it comes with a cloth for cleansing purposes.
- Sound: It's not surround sound system, but I think it's a nice feature to have on this kind of device, although I don't plan to use it extensively for that matter.
- Features: USB port is a plus for portable presentations that don't requiere a laptop; Remote Control works out-of-the-box and provides aid with presentations played from a USB device connected to the device. DVD connectors that makes it easy to just plug a DVD player and play a movie or so, without hassles.
All that said, again I have to stress that it's meant to be used indoors for personal use or small groups (my take is no more than 10 people); If you need to hold larger audiences or use outdoors presentation you may want to consider other brighter (and bigger) options.
My only complaint that I could make, all things considered, is the lack of head phone output. The speaker is OK, but the head phone jack was a selling point. The P400 had one, and I made the mistake of assuming this the P410 would too. What the P410 does gain is a pretty cool feature where you can plug in a USB drive and watch or listen to the media on the drive without the need for a computer/game console/ect. As long as your media is in the right format, you can watch movies, photos, or music on the go. All you need is electricity, a dimmly light room, a white wall (or close to it), the P410, and a USB drive and you've got pure entertainment.
The unit comes with a d-sub monitor cable to send a video signal from a laptop to the P410. The power brick is kinda big (not bigger that the P410 thought) but who cares.
At 6 feet from the wall, I've got a 42 inch display. Games look good, movies look great. I will never be without this projector while traveling or deployed overseas.
What it needs to get that perfect score:
1)100 more lumens
2)HDMI w/ at least 720p resolution
3)less fan noise(not bad as it is but it's still louder than a laptop)
Newer LED projectors are also integrating tv tuners. I wish this model had one. Also noticeably missing is a headphone out jack. It's great that you can plug an external harddrive into the usb slot and playback alot of different files without a computer, but it sucks that the audio is limited to the projectors speakers. Next to not being hdmi capable that's gotta be this models biggest drawback. Mount the projector to the ceiling. Plug in a 1tb portable hd. Have access to hundreds of movies...that you can aallllmost hear. :(
