Rather than the standard “Color Mode” setting, the ViewSonic M1 Pocket Projector offers three “Display Modes.” They are: Brightest, Standard, and Theater. I had to toggle back and forth a number of times to see any real difference – it’s extremely minor. The only thing that seems to really change between the three display modes is the temperature.
Brightest seemed a little cool, theater seemed a little warm, and standard was somewhere right in the middle. The Light Source settings, i.e. the three different Eco modes, only had an effect on brightness, and aren’t tied in to the color modes. Regrettably, there are no options to calibrate anything or to change color temperature.
All photos in this review, save for the ones in this section utilized to demonstrate the different modes, were all taken in Standard Mode. Color is alright, but reds and skin-tones tend to suffer, which is pretty typical at this price point.
