Palm-sized Pico Projector delivering 30 ANSI lumens for WVGA (854×480) resolution that can be run by AC or Battery (2 hour life) power with 1GB of internal memory and connectivity for PC (via VGA 15pin adaptor cable), Composite Video (via adaptor cable withL,R,V RCA connectors), USB storage device via (USB to miniUSB adaptor cable), headphones (via 1/8″ jack), and microSD card slot (up to 16GB).

I’m an artist — drawings and acrylics — mostly smaller-size 8x10s and 11x14s. This projector is perfect for me. I can work from any digital image… project it on to panel or canvas from 16″ away (8×10) or 24″ (11×14). I project the image down to artboard on my kitchen table. It certainly will project a lot larger, but as a realist painter I don’t have the time to do large-scale art!
Brightness — I duct-taped a homemade projector mount to an old adjustable desk lamp, and, at 24″, can see and draw the projected image perfectly in normal room light… great because you want to be able to see your pencil lines as well as the projected image.
Other comments — echo the previous 2 reviews. Use it on the wall plug to avoid USB battery rundown. The menus are slightly confusing, you’ll need to print out the user manual at Kinko’s to get a handle on the choices. And it stays cool — unlike older projectors, you don’t have to worry about melting the original slide or hardcopy photo.
Sharpness — the projected image is quite sharp, perfect for sketching. Not blurry. The focus adjuster is a great feature.
If you draw or paint — particularly portraits, where being off a couple of millimeters changes the facial features completely, get this projector. But — if you want to paint wall art, or large murals, you’ll need a much more powerful projector, like the kind in corporate meeting rooms.
Hope this helps other artists out there — it’s neat to have this essential tool available at way under $500!
