There is not a lamp to be found on this pocket projector! The ViewSonic M1 relies on an LED light source (typical of pico and pocket projectors) and boasts an operational life of over 30,000 hours, according to their website. Other than being virtually maintenance free, by eliminating the lamp this projector offers a more environmentally friendly, Mercury-Free solution with less power consumption than a typical LCD TV.
While ViewSonic makes the 30,000 hour lifespan claim, they also note that actual life with vary on the usage of the projector and other factors. Though I couldn’t find it specifically mentioned anywhere relating to the M1, a claim of 30,000 hours is contingent upon using a dim, low-power Eco mode, which rarely will suit the needs of the user – especially on a projector that claims only 250 lumens in the first place!
