The DX605 projector features two VGA inputs, allowing simultaneous connection of a PC and a SCART source, and providing optimum quality for both inputs. No cable swapping or re-configuration is required, with either source able to be directly selected from the included wireless remote control, and manual focus and zoom allowing you to stay in charge of your multi-media presentation. Because this HDTV-compatible projector weighs only 4.4 pounds, you can take it on business trips, vacations and to remote work locations.

With top-notch picture clarity, and the astonishing quality of advanced DLP technology featuring DarkChip2 DLP for deeper contrast and extraordinary brightness, everyone will want to use your Optoma DX605.

What's in the Box
Optoma DX605 XGA Portable DLP Data Projector, carrying case, the requisite connecting video cables, remote control with batteries, and quick-start and user's guides.

(customer review)The unit powered up, recognized my Mac and optimized itself for its native 1024 x 768 display. Sharp as a tack, excellent color balance and modes optimized for PC graphics (photos, sharper, etc.) and movies (NTSC optimized color balance, optimized for raster speed). I didn't try the game mode.

Very light, comes packed into a nice carry case with all needed cables (including a decently long power cord!) and with a good remote. It did everything I wanted right out of the box.
