LED projectors mainly from USA or China have many accessories, such as SDcard slot, USB , and even wi-fi built in.
Unfortunately the one I tested ended up going back after 2 weeks due dust getting inside as it was not air tight. This affected the viewing enjoyment becuase of black dots over the picture..
I then had to find a projector that would not have this proble. It was then that I discovered that there was a projector manufacturer on a business estate in my town.
I found a 1080p FULL HD model that was almost double the price of the LED and lacked USB and SDcard. Quite a lot to miss out on, but one thing it had was a FULL 1080p 3D picture. The projector was DLP and the bulb lasts about 3000hours, plus a more silent fan with dust protection.
Bring movies and games to life with the HD131Xe Full HD 1080p 3D up to a 300" projector.
The DLP projector is almost double the price of a budget projector. But still under £500 for which you can get about a 96 inch Video Picture in a 3.5meter wide room.
This model is really quiet and not intrusive. Using it a few hours a day, the bullb should last about 3 years, unlike the LED which has a much longer life.
I went for this model as I wanted it was quieter than many others out there.
It has 2 HDMI connections.
Rather than unplugging the cables from my TV and putting into the projector, I unplug the from the Blu-ray or sky device and use the spare cable that I leave in the projector.
Only drawbacks compared to my previous projector imported from usa/china. is that it has no USB connection. Also screen picture was bigger at close range. No digital sound output but does have a built in speaker and 3,5mm ouput.
