The Optoma Pro260X is ready for use in an office but is also suitable for display needs on the road, according to a recent projector review.

Writing for PC Mag, Tony Hoffman noted that the device has “decent image quality for both data and video” and, although there are some higher spec. projectors on the market, the Pro260X's attributes should be sufficient for most business users.

The device boasts a 4:3 aspect ratio and is a DLP-based long-throw system with XGA (1,024x768) native resolution. Its brightness clocks in at 3,000 lumens, which should be sufficient to overpower any ambient light in a relatively small conference room.

One of its main benefits, however, is its size, which is just four by 11.3 by 7.2 inches, with a weight of five pounds. This makes it compact and portable and there is also a carrying case included in the purchase.

Unfortunately, its basic set of ports is lacking a USB thumb drive, which is included on many recent devices. But there is a VGA in and out, composite video, S-video and HDMI option, as well as a RS232.

But it is 3D-capable and, according to the projector review, is not a bad choice considering its reasonable price if you are looking for a “good combination of resolution, features, image quality [and] portability”.
