OK, this is a stocking stuffer, for those of you with portable tastes, you can save $100 for the next week, if the BenQ GP1 “lights your fire”.
Back in July, I reviewed BenQ’s little GP1, a mini or “pocket” projector class device. That is, much larger and heavier than the pico projectors, and a lot smaller and lighter than any of the traditional portable business projectors. The GP1, for those of you who don’t remember, is a fun product that can double as a fairly low brightness business projector, suitable for some small meetings. Check out the review!
It is the brightest of this class of small projectors that I’ve seen to date. It is a low cost compromise product for business, but it can be a blast for more informal use, such as watching my first official YouTube video. While projectors in this class are all about a lot of compromises, we found the GP1 to be pretty impressive, all considered. As a result, I even gave it a Hot Product award.
