The internet is full of super-cheap projectors. To see what they’re all about, I requested one of the cheapest, Vankyo’s Leisure 420 DLP Projector, selling for just $110.

In a departure from my usual home theater display reviews, I’ll be checking out this diminutive DLP and running it through a full suite of benchmark tests.

The Leisure 420 offers 1080p signal compatibility through two HDMI ports. You can hook up a Blu-ray player or plug in a streaming stick for quick and easy big-screen viewing. It can project an image up to 200 inches and if you want a screen, it’s only $30 extra. Computer sources can be connected through a VGA port and there’s even an SD card reader which can display photos or videos. Sound comes from a built-in speaker, or you can plug in a pair of headphones to the 3.5mm output jack. A tiny and well-designed remote with glow-in-the-dark keys controls the system efficiently.

This isn’t a typical review for me and most comments will be qualified by “it only costs $110.” But I’ve already discovered some interesting things and on first blush, the image looks decent. I’ll have my full review up shortly with complete test results and detailed viewing impressions. Stay tuned!
