Hello pals,

I need a projector/beamer for making PowerPoint presentations without a PC. I have chosen 2 Benq models with this feature by their specifications. Their price range is about 600 USD / 400 GBP. The models are:

mx661
mx618st

I have been told that PC-less mode is problematic and it is not usable in real. Has anyone had experience with PC-less mode? Have you had any issues with it?

Kind regards,
George

To display a PowerPoint slide, you need something to render it and deliver it to the display medium...i.e. a PC.

I'm not sure what they mean by "PC-less mode", but you can't do that with only the projector.

Hi USAFRet,

PC-less mode is done via a slot for flash memory. I suppose you enter in projector on-screen menu where you select the presentation you want to show and navigate through slides with projector's remote controller.

Any with this kind of experience?

In that case, the projector is a PC. It has the necessary brains to render a PowerPoint.
But possibly, they only mean the ability to render pictures and video.
