We're really impressed by the Dell M115HD. It might not be the most powerful projector on the market, but its 450 lumens LED bulb kicks out easily enough light for home use, even in large rooms....

Tiny, lightweight, and highly portable
USB direct
Can run presentations from USB thumb drives and micro SD cards
Very long lamp life
Optional WiFi connectivity
Shows scaling artifacts at its claimed native resolution
Sub-par text quality
