    what's the point, apple only allows you to view

    ipod videos
    ipod photos
    youtube

    via video out

    It's not worth the cost


    now if apple allowed mirroring ( showing whats on the screen) then that's another story

    DUDE! First off just wanted to say hi, I'm new here - I've been die hard PC guy all my life but just picked up a macbook air - IT'S SO MUCH BETTER!

    Anyways, DUDE - I just picked up the Aaxatech micro projector, this thing is FREAKING AWESOME! Not only do I watch 60" videos on the ceiling at night, I can take it with me wherever... I was watching American dad in classs and screwing with my friends on campus :p

    Only downside is the battery only lasts like an hour. It's not super bright in the daytime, but for $250 it was TOTALL WORTH IT. Check out my thread on ipodtouchfans:

    I've attached some pics, but seriously even for the $399 Optoma unit I think it's totally worth it!

    What I want it for

    I want it to project a slide show onto the wall. My sis is getting married and want to project a slide show of baby pics on the wall in the reception

    Based on what I've seen I'm not sure you can use any LED projector for a wedding venue. Most weddings I've seen they are using top of the line business projectors with like Xenon or Halogen bulbs with 3000 lumens - I don't think 12 or even 500 lumens is going to cut it for a wedding unless it's in complete darkness
