The Optoma ML550 Projector is tiny at just 400 g. It measures 38 by 104 by 106 mm and it is the perfect solution for those who need a portable projector. This particular projector is best for office use due to its portability, but it does well in the home as well. It accesses media through a USB, SD card, VGA input, or the HDMI port. The Optoma also supports supports most formats of documents files, music files, and video files. Biztech Magazine says that the images are sharp, colourful, and the LED lamp produces 500 lumens.

The folks from Digital Trends recommend the InFocus IN1144 even though their initial reaction was that it may be too small to be an effective LED projector. It weighs 800 g pounds and is slightly larger than the Optoma. However, the portability does come in handy and it still has all of the needed connection methods such as a USB, SD slot, HDMI port and VGA port that make it useful in the home and in the office. People can even use this projector to give presentations without having a computer hooked up. The InFocus reads PowerPoint docs and all other formats. Those who want to watch videos in quiet can hook up their headphones through the audio jack. The projector also boasts a 30,000 hour lifespan. It only outputs 500 lumens, but in a totally dark room, that is adequate. With its affordable price, Digital Trends recommends the InFocus as a great projector to start out with.

The BenQ GP1 LED portable projector is one of the many popular, compact devices. It did not take long for people to discover how convenient it is to have a high-tech projector that's half the size of most other devices. The experts from Trusted Reviews chose the BenQ to test out and they were more than impressed. It measures at 54 by 136 by 120 mm and weighs only 565 g. It is not the smallest projector on the market, but it's pretty close. It even looks attractive, which the majority of projectors cannot boast. One of the features that sets the BenQ apart is its iPod port. It can play music and videos from these Apple devices.
