Good projector?

by jackhochschild / October 22, 2010 10:43 PM PDT

Does anyone know of a good projector which does not require much maintenance, has a good picture quality and is under $500? (maximum $600 though)

Thanks in advance.

I think that the aaxa M2 or optoma pk301 would be good choices. They are both LED projectors, so there is no buying new bulbs. The aaxa is brighter at 110 lumens, where as the optoma is 50 lumens. The optoma has a battery and is smaller, so it is more portable. The aaxa projector has an onboard video player which is a cool option. The aaxa takes SD and USB, and the optoma takes microSD. On amazon, the aaxa m2 is $334.47, and the optoma is $364, so there isn't much difference in price.
