The ViewSonic M1 is small, measuring a mere 5.8 by 5 inches in size, and only 1.6 inches tall. Looking at this projector from the front, we have the Smart Stand doubling as a lens cover. Once that has been rotated down to assume the position of a stand, the front of the projector is exposed. The lens, with a fixed focal length, sits toward the right, which sensors are situated in the middle. These are the Eye Protection and IR sensors; this is the only IR sensor. The left side is where the fan is located, and where the hot exhaust air is expelled.
The rear of the projector houses the cool room air intake, the simple four button control panel and the battery indicator. At first glance the right side of the projector is featureless, save for the lens focus wheel located near the front. There is a fabric tab that, when pulled, opens a door exposing the input and connectors; there are only a few connectors and even then, it is a tight fit. The metal screen design hides the first speaker. The bottom of the projector has a tri-pod mounting hole, and the top features the sleek Harman Kardon design and name, as well as the second speaker.
