Asus P2B review

 

The P2B is absurdly easy to use. It powers on almost instantly, and does a very good job of correcting the image automatically. We didn't have to fiddle around with the keystone settings to get a straight picture, and mobile executives will find this a...

This pretty little projector has amazing portability. The short throw lens and easy setup are excellent, and sound levels are low. As ultra-portables go, this is a very good choice. If you think you'll be frequently using it in rooms containing plenty...

Asus P2B Projector

 

The Asus P2B Projector follows a familiar design: a WXGA (1,280-by-800) DLP chip paired with an LED light source that should last the life of the projector. It doesn't offer any standout features, but it's a perfectly reasonable choice if you need a...

Relatively short throw. Reads files directly from USB memory keys and microSD cards. Rechargeable battery. Audio system suitable for a small room.

Shows apparent scaling artifacts, even at claimed native resolution.

If you need the best image quality for showing fine detail with a highly portable projector, the Editors' Choice 3M MP410 is still your best choice. And if you need a slightly brighter projector, the Optoma ML550 is an obvious alternative, with its...

Great features for computer-free presentations:  directly display photos, video, audio and documents (MS Office, text and Acrobat pdf) from the projector’s internal memory or a microSD or USB flash memory drive, Internal battery provides 90 minutes of...

Focus is a little soft (not unusual for this class of pocket projector) making text readability on presentations not quite as good as with the best pocket and portable projectors, All of the P2B’s available Picture Modes provide a cool color...

ASUS P2B LED Projector Review - A Self-sufficient Portable Projector

 

The ASUS P2B is a mini DLP projector that uses LEDs as its light source. With 2GB of internal storage and a media center function, you don't even need a laptop to conduct a presentation. Find out more in this review.

30,000-hour LED lifespan ; Read AV and presentation files from USB storage, microSD card, and internal storage ; HDMI/MHL support

Slight text softness ; Fan noise can get quite loud ; No Wi-Fi dongle option

Like many other palm-top projectors, the ASUS P2B trades brightness for ease of use and great portability. It offers a solid set of input choices (no Wi-Fi option though), and even manages to top that by incorporating a full-fledged media player. From...

Amazing Device... This is the start of something new and awesome... terrible carry-case!

 

Since the bag is something extra I won't remove an egg. However, other projector come with poor bags because those bags don't matter since projectors are usually mounted or planted on a cart or table and are rarely transported. This is a mini projector...

Works beautifully. Picture is clear and bright with strong contrast and quite large and clear ; I LOVE that I can pull this projector out of my bag with ZERO wires and fire it up. No power cables (runs on Li battery), no pc cables (use usb flash or 2gb...
