LED illumination technology from ViewSonic offers a 50% power consumption advantage over traditional projector technology, but has the added benefit of increased lamp life, 500% more than traditional lamps.

The PLED-W500 even includes an integrated media player and Microsoft Office document viewer, which when used with the built in memory card reader or USB port means a laptop or PC is not needed to make presentations.
