Projectors for mac
Posted 07 April 2006 - 01:34 AM
Have any of you found a good quality Multimedia Projector for mac? i am looking for a cheap yet portable Projector, as i do lots of moving around i also need it to be small and light weight. Uses, well presentations and watching DVD's, thise are the main functions for me, and to be even more Fussy, if i could get one with a weight under 3lbs that would be perfect. /forums/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif

dated, but street word says its successors are better).
Cheap is relative. In terms of projectors, the Epson S3
is cheap at about $750US. Weight is 6 lb.
It is light and compact, and it works fine with both our
old Wallstreet PB (OS9) and the new AlBook 15" (OSX 10.3.9).
The remote is plug-n-play. We use VGA output on both Macs.
Hope this helps.

You have to consider the size of the space (distance from the screen), size of the screen, and the brightness of the room, and weigh those against the cost and size of the projector. Then consider whether or not some extra features are worth the added costs.
With those considerations in mind, check independant reviews about various projectors in the class that you need. They can at least provide education about the various features and which models can do what. I like this website for reviews:
