Vivitek have launched the Qumi Q2 Lite, the latest member of the Qumi LED projector family. In a nutshell this projector looks identical to the original Vivitek Qumi Q2 (now end of line) but its £50 cheaper and has a significantly higher contrast ratio of 10,000:1 instead of 2,500:1 so its ideal for watching movies.
To get the price down to an ultra low £349 inc vat and make the Q2 Lite one of the cheapest 300 lumen projector models, Vivitek have simply removed a few of the original Qumi Q2 features such as, the ability to stream via a wifi dongle and connect to a 50 lumen external battery. These features are however still available on the Vivitek Qumi Q5. The Ligher Q2 also does not come with a carry case or come with the same number of cables as the Q2 with the Q2 Lite only including a VGA cable instead of the additional Apple cables.
Essentially though the Qumi Q2 Lite has kept the most important features which made the original Qumi Q2 such a popular and successful projector such as its great design, tiny form factor and ultra portability with very impressive performance stats including 300 lumens LED at WXGA (1200 x 800) resolution.
It still weighs only 490 grams and has multiple connectivity options allowing it to be used with a variety of devices. The Q2-Lite also features a DLP Pico chipset and BrilliantColor™ technologies from Texas Instruments meaning that you always get a rich, high quality image.
