The projector is very small and very bright. Its bright enough to project it in a room where some light slips in. It does not have to be completely dark. Its small but it does everything it promises! This is a great projector!!
First, I'd like to say that I ordered this projector on May 9th, and recieved it less than 24 hours later. Kudos to NCIX for the speedy shipping.
Picked this up on sale for $399 because I was curious about trying a projector setup for the first time, but couldn't justify spending upwards of $1000 for the novelty. I basically wanted a projector that I could use as a large secondary monitor for my computer, for playing movies, tv shows and videogames. The ridiculous lamp life on this projector is what ultimately sold me, as I have no interest in spending $300+ every year or two if I end up using the projector heavily.
Very good small projector, surprisingly cheap for whats it's capable of. Better if kept in a light controlled room. Integrated speakers are ok but pluging in a surround sound system definitely improves experience. Makes a nice projector for gaming on a budget since it virtually has no lag.
I bought this for use in a classroom. Been happy so far, no issues. As the other reviewer said, the VGA cable doesn't lock so sometimes disconnects if you change touch the system. One issue I had is after I showed a short video on it using my iphone, 12 hours later I tried to watch something on utube but the phone thought I was still connected to the projectore. Uncool!! Turned off the phone and re-booted and it was fine. Otherwise, easy to figure out, am fine with external power source. I needed something that I could back away and store easily and frequently. This fits the bill. Very good picture for my uses in a classroom and the iphone dock has purpose in my music room. Speakers are quiet - I just put this through my soundboard/sound system and all is good. Happy, but may not purchase again if I'm in the market.
I was trying to pick between this and the Optomas ML500. I ended up buying this one. However the struggle that I have went thru might be useful for u people. I am not real satisfied but I dont wanna pay the 15% restocking fee.
