Projector Reviews: Weight And Portability
If you’re shopping around for a projector it’s important that you take the time to review more than one before you make your final choice. The more projectors you review, the better idea you’ll have of what you’re looking for whether you’re buying for business or personal use. One of the factors you’ll want to take into consideration is the weight and portability of the projector. When you’re deciding what weight you want for your projector you’ll have to consider a couple of other issues such as the type of display the projector has as well as brightness, resolution, and the type of lens that it has. You might want to think about where you’re going to be using the projector, such in a conference room, theater, or in an overhead compartment.
Weight is a big issue for projectors. If you haven’t even thought about weight perhaps it’s not an issue. If you’re going to be placing the projector in a conference room, or mounted in a boardroom, the weight most likely won’t matter. However, if you’re going to be moving the projector from one room to another the weight will become a huge factor in deciding what you end up buying. You’ll also want to determine what you’re going to be using the projector for. If you need to present a great sales pitch, or display top quality conference material, you’ll want to spend a bit more for a high-end projector. And if you’re going to be taking the projector with you when you travel, adding that extra pound in weight is going to make a big difference as you move from plane to car to conference room. Don’t forget that you’re already carrying other items such as your laptop and briefcase.
There are some very lightweight projectors on the market. Some of these projectors weight less than five pounds and are known as an “ultralight” projector. The ultralight has gotten lighter and lighter over the past few years while the cost has remained much the same. Always remember that it’s not just the weight of the projector that you need to take into consideration; you’ll also have to weigh in other items such as the case and lens that the projector needs to operate. If you’re doing a lot of traveling it will be very important that you have a projector that is easy to carry as well as one that is easy to operate when you’re short of time to set up.
