Product Review
This article evaluates the XR-1S, a pico-portable lightweight projector from Sharp. With a high contrast ratio of 1500:1, the product performs excellently at work in brighter office environments and at home. Providing the ideal presentation in a bag solution, the product can sit comfortable alongside a laptop in a briefcase, eliminating the need to carry additional baggage to and from presentations. It comes with a soft carry pouch as standard but for a few extra pounds there is a custom designed leather case that can carry the projector, a laptop, paperwork and other business peripherals. Creating a good impression within the meeting environment is achieved through its stylish, compact appearance and use of a high quality Carl Zeiss lens that enables the reproduction of extremely high quality images on screen. The Automatic Keystone Correction and Quick Start mode add to this, making sure the user can quickly efficiently display the presentation content at hand, in approximately eight seconds. Freedom of movement during the meeting can also be achieved through using the credit card sized remote control over the presentation content. A wide range of in-built presets maximize the projector's performance.
