The LED 500 is now discontinued. The LED 500 is a fine projector, but we’re constantly upgrading our product line. Look for our newest line of LED digital Art Projectors. The LED 500 is brighter, and has a greater contrast ratio, while the super bright, maintenance-free 500 lumen LED lamp provides vivid and accurate illumination and lasts up to 30,000 hours. Image controls allow you to rotate, resize, and reverse your picture at the touch of a button, and includes a new feature which automatically adjusts the projected image to be square when being projected higher or lower than the projector.
