Rated at 4,000 lumens and weighing less than seven pounds, the Optoma X401 projector is surprisingly bright for its weight...

Bright, rated at 4 000 lumens
Unusually portable for the brightness
Good to excellent data image quality
Obvious rainbow artifacts in video make it suitable for short video clips only
