Sharp Notevision XR-1S review

 

Weighing just 3.2 lbs (lighter than our subnotebook), Sharp's petite new Notevision XR-1S DLP projector (~$1200 street) utilizes Carl Zeiss optics to display a 800 x 600 SXGA picture, supporting 720p and 1080i resolutions at 1100 lumens and a 1500:1...

Sharp Notevision XR-1S

 

The Notevision XR-1S from Sharp is a tiny projector that makes big, bright images.

Extremely small. Bright image for a 3.2-pound projector. Good printed documentation.

Fairly noisy. Small remote with fewer buttons and tiny legends. Limited connectors.

Review: Highly Mobile Sharp XR-1X

 

The Sharp XR-1X is a remarkable mobile projector in many ways. Its most remarkable feature is its DLP display technology. If you are not familiar with Sharp as a projector manufacturer, you might wonder why this is so remarkable when 41% of the...

Product Specifications

Sharp has revolutionized the micro-compact "pico" projector market with the introduction of the Notevision "XR" Series. The sleek, micro-compact design, combined with high brightness, and high quality Carl Zeiss optics, makes the XR-1X (XGA) the ultimate choice for both data and video projection. Offering both a "standard" operating mode and low-power "economy" mode enables the XR series to meet the requirements of most any room or application. And, in the low-power mode, providing a lamp life of up to 4000 hours, with low fan noise and power consumption, ensures the XR-1X is exceptionally quiet and economical to operate. The Notevision XR series is fully featured with an OSD (on-screen display) operation guide, LED backlit operation buttons, and system lock functions. In addition to offering computer compatibility up through SXGA+, the XR-1X offers extensive DTV/HDTV compatibility. Automatic Digital Keystone and sync further simplifies setup, and a handy credit-card size remote control is included (offering not only wireless mouse function, but also "Freeze" and Resize" presentation support).
