Optoma DS325 SVGA 2600 Lumens DLP Projector

 

Great projector, ideal for my room presentations where natural & room light is present ; Easy to set up and fully compatible with my laptop. The price was excellent

No projector case, but then for the money I wasn't expecting it

Optoma DS325 SVGA 2600 Lumens DLP Projector

 

This is an awesome bit of kit. I have two as I teach in all sorts of conditions and this is great even in a light environment. Good value for money, not pocket sized, but fits in a wheelie bag so good to carry around

Does get quite hot over a long day, but not dangerously hot or worrying to me
