Personal Experience
Since I give many financial presentations while I am traveling, a critical factor for me is to get the weight below 3 pounds. I considered the NEC LT10, but ended up buying the InFocus LP70+ at Best Buy.

The LP70+ was simple to hook up. My Dell Precision M60 laptop automatically picked up on the projector right away (Windows XP). While my computer uses a 1680x1050 resolution, everything adjusted automatically to accommodate the 1024x768 resolution of the projector.

The most amazing quality is how bright the picture is! It definitely captures the "wow" factor! The color white literally leaps off of the wall/screen! My biggest concern with color before my purchase was yellow. I think complaints of yellow having a greenish tint to it are overblown. While the yellow might not be as crisp as on your computer monitor, you can definitely tell that it is yellow.

The picture is so crisp! Detailed stock market charts are well defined and spreadsheets show up great. I tried it with video, too, and it did a fine job!

Obviously, I cannot evaluate the durability yet. Thanks to the reviews I read that expressed concerns with InFocus's customer support, I decided to go elsewhere. It was worth an extra $50 to avoid hassle. To protect myself, I bought a 3-year service contract for an extra $180 (which includes replacement bulbs!).

Time will tell whether this is a good purchase, but in the early stages, I'm very pleased.

Problems
Nothing so far.
