BenQ MS504 DLP Projector
on 22 May 2014
A good little "starter" projector, great for talks to community groups, light weight, easy to use and quiet. If you have Windows 7 or over and use Microsoft Power Point a cable (not supplied) allows you to use the remote control (supplied) to progress through your presentation without touching the computer, very convenient. It does tend to get quite warm so would recommend allowing plenty of time at the end to cool down before packing away.
I think I read somewhere that a person could only use the remote sensor by pointing the remote control directly at the front of the projector, but if you prefer to talk from the back of the hall behind your audience, you can "bounce" the signal from the remote control off the screen to the front of the projector and it will do its stuff.
Cable not supplied for connection to the computer, you decide which of the connection options you want to use and purchase the appropriate cable/s. I needed a VGA cable (male) to be able to use my computer with the device, you also need a USB Type A to Mini-B cable if you wish to use the remote connector instead of the computer mouse/pad for going from one presentation slide to another. The remote does everything else required automatically.
