Optoma ML500 3D Ready DLP Projector - 720p - HDTV - 16:10


Road-warrior professionals will love the Optoma ML500 LED portable projector for its compact size and powerful features which support powerful and effective presentations in a variety of environments without complexity. Meanwhile, small office and home office users presenting to small groups can meet their projection needs without the cost and complexity of an installation projector. Home users will appreciate the opportunity to take their entertainment with them-or quickly set up an impromptu backyard theater.

The ML500 is designed to be simple to use. The built-in Office viewer delivers PC-free projection of Microsoft Office documents, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. from onboard memory, SD cards, or USB flash drives. USB display provides quick, easy projection from laptops. An HDMI connector lets the projector connect readily to the broadest possible range of devices. Auto Keystone automatically optimizes the image shape for non-standard projection setups. Instant On/Off minimizes time to projection.

  • Excellent quality with sharp, clear picture
    Verified Purchase

    Got this unit becuase of the ability to use flash drive instead of laptop. The only downside is that complicated Powerpoint presentations with many layers of graphics don't always display with graphics correctly using the OfficeViewer option from a flash drive. Once I bought an HDMI cable and started using this unit with the laptop, could not be happier. All of my colleagues are borrowing it and we even use it for online webinars becuase the quality is so good. The unit is quiet and does not get too hot; it's also lightweight and small. I would consider this model PERFECT if the electrical cord was longer to eliminate need for extension cord, and there was a lens cover for protection during storage and transport.

    Best tech purchase I've made since my last iPhone. Sold my TV. Now for some smaller speakers. Where did I put that Bose catalog?

  • Beautiful picture!
    Verified Purchase

    As a first time projector owner, I could not be more pleased. We absolutely love it! We use it with the Sony Home Theater System ( for theater sound) to watch movies.. We are projecting about 6 foot of picture on a white wall and you could not ask for a more beautiful picture. The image is sharp and colors are rich.
