Hi everyone,

I'm looking for an LED outdoor projector with USB capabilities to change the projected image often. Basically, the image will be projected onto a concrete wall showing still images. Any recommendations? I'm looking for something not overly expensive.

Thanks for you help!!

I know there are a couple LED projectors that have USB inputs that can deal with most of the standard picture and video files. Benq IIRC and at least one other. I do not know if any of the bulb based machines do this yet as I have not been looking at them in ages. I need a new projector (or bulb replacement for one of my two Benq machines) which is why I know the LED variety does offer support in this arena. FWIW, I used to run static images on my eight by sixteen foot permanent backyard screen. I would vary between different night time views of city skylines. In the environment I had built around my setup, you could get the feeling of being in those cities, sitting on my back deck and drinking coffee, etc. Here's a picture I took one night. I do not know which city skyline is shown in this picture. I have a bunch of them. Somebody will recognize it I'm sure.

Many inexpensive bulb-bases PJs can play pictures from a USBthumbdrive, but most can't play video from it. Almost all portable LED PJs can play pictures from USB and many can play video from USB too. For pictures/slideshows from an inexpensive PJ it's hard to go wrong, they're almost ALL capable in large because most are considered business models.
