Projector Central Review
"Since it weighs only 5.5 lbs., it fits easily as a combo business and home entertainment projector. Use it in the office or classroom during the week, and bring it home for movies and sports entertainment on the weekends. Its better-than-typical audio quality and volume is a useful extra for both business and home-entertainment use. "
