    I'm planning to buy an Acer Iconia Tab a200. As it doesn't have any TV-out, so I was wondering if there is any way I could play my presentations on the projector via USB 2.0 port. For the same attempt I found an adapter in the following link and was wondering if I will be able to serve the purpose through it.

    Will be grateful if anyone would provide their reviews on this topic.

    Thank You.

    NOT.
    The display port is not USB. It has 20 pins compared to USB 4 pin. DisplayPort - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    If you really need to play presentations on a projector then the A200 is probably not for you. Get a tab with HDMI out like the Acer A500.

    You might have some success streaming the video over wi-fi with upnp/dlna but I doubt it as there are not many projectors that support dlna
