Versatile projector

Home theatre projectors are generally used in darkened rooms, so they don’t need to put out a lot of light; colour accuracy, clean images, and low fan noise matter most. Business projectors, on the other hand, need to display razor-sharp text and pump out enormous amounts of light to accommodate the conditions in the average conference room.

The most attractive aspect of the sleek-looking Mp3130 is its ability to automatically detect what it’s connected to and then adjust its light output accordingly. For example, if you plug it into a notebook, it automatically switches to business graphics mode (you can also adjust the unit manually). In that situation, the projector puts out an excellent 1800 (peak) ANSI lumens, more than bright enough for the best-lit meeting room. If, however, you connect it with an S-Video cable to a DVD player, it lowers the light output to about 800 lumens for more comfortable movie viewing in a home theatre setting.

I found the Mp3130 easy to use, with sensible controls and a good remote. The projector has XGA (1024x768) native resolution, but will adjust automatically to accept most notebook screen resolutions. For business use, I found the text crisp and the colours true. As a home theatre projector, the Mp3130 offers accurate and pleasing colours.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
