I've already touched on all of the S1's limitations worth mentioning. All but one are typical for this category of projector.
No zoom. Like most small projectors, the S1 lacks a zoom lens.
Apparent scaling artifacts. As with all projectors with a similar DLP chip design, the S1 shows apparent scaling artifacts even at its native resolution.
Rainbow artifacts. As with the vast majority of DLP projectors, the S1 shows occasional rainbow artifacts.
Limited connection choices. You can only use image sources that can connect to an HDMI port.
The ASUS S1 sits in a comfortable niche between competing pocket projectors that are similarly portable but not as bright, and 300- and 500-lumen models that are brighter, not as portable, and more expensive. Unfortunately, if you need to use an image source that can't connect to an HDMI port, it's useless. But if HDMI will work with everything you need to connect to, the S1 delivers a winning balance of image quality, portability, brightness, sound quality, volume, and price. That's more than enough to make it an attractive choice.
