    Broke after 1 use

    I received this product as part of a golf outing raffle and was very excited because I was actually in the market for a projector. I used it once for a Game of Thrones episode and was very happy. When I went to use it again it flickered and just stopped working. Obviously a faulty unit. I don't expect this is the norm but it happened to me. I love Insignia for the most part. Have many products of theirs including wireless headphones, google assistant speakers and more, but had a terrible experience with this. And because I won it and don't have any receipt or recourse, I am told I am out of luck. Wish Best Buy would stand behind their product and loyal customer and ship me out a new one, but doesn't look like its going to happen. Very disappointed.

    Great product for the money!

    I was interested in a pico projector for use in my bedroom at home or on the go, and this product works like a charm! The picture is surprisingly great considering it's only 480p! Colors are reproduced well, text is perfectly readable, and I don't mind the slight screen door effect! The unit is definitely bright enough for use in a dark room or at night, but not so much during the day! The built in speaker sounds great and is plenty loud, but I have it running into an external stereo, so your mileage may vary. Also, the unit itself is very quiet, since it uses an LED and doesn't requite a stout cooling fan! C'mon! It's like 200 bucks, you can't go wrong! For the money, it's well worth it!

    Worth Every Penny

    This Inginia Pico Projector not only works, but it works beyond its value. For the price it's speakers are amazing, enough to fill a room for a family movie or even outside. The image clarity is amazing as long as you are outputting at 720p (1280 x 720). I was surprised with the brightness it was able to produce even when a room was not completely dark. One thing that also surprised me was the input lag for gaming. Typically you would not want to hook up a gaming station to a smaller projector like this, but it was going beyond my expectations so I figured I'd try to game with it. Blown away yet again! It was able to handle some games with minimal input lag

    This projector travels with me to make sales pitches. I connect it to a MacBook Pro and display PowerPoint. I like that I just took it out of the box, plugged everything in, and it worked. No toggling on screens, pushing buttons to change inputs, etc, it just displayed my laptop screen fine. I have not tried the sound functionality. Nor have I tried using it on its battery power. Only reason I didn't rate 5 stars is I don't love the size - wish it was smaller, and had smaller power adaptor. Also wish it came with a better travel bag (just a cheap sack with a drawstring).

    This Projector Is Perfect!

    I bought this specifically for use in my backyard for summer outdoor movie nights and winter hot tubbing. I've hung a white bed sheet on my house as the screen, and when it's dark, the picture quality is great! The speaker on the projector itself is actually pretty good. When it gets to the summer, I'll easily be able to hook up other speakers to the projector to get a great outdoor movie experience. For the price, this thing is great. It might not be what you're looking for if you are using this for a high-end theater room. But for the price, this thing is easy to charge and transport, and it does exactly what I hoped it would.

    Got mine as an open item. Didn’t want to spend much as it really was going to be used for outdoors events. Quick and easy to set up and I just attached hdmi cord from my iPhone and streamed Netflix with iPhone attachment ($40). It included everything else you need in box. Loved the fact on a full charge we watch 2 movies. Wireless speakers sounds great! Does give you the opinion to add speaker using 3.5mm plug. Was very impressed by picture quality. Can be used as a Bluetooth speaker for sound only. Every-time I set it up people are so impressed! Very good find for the price.

    Perfect... I purchased this for back yard movie nights. I couldn't be happier with this projector. Set up is simple. The speaker is just loud enough. If you want more, simply connect to an alternate Bluetooth speaker. It projects at 480P but still looks great on the 100" inflatable screen that I purchased with it. Used it twice this weekend so far and my kids (and the neighborhood kids) loved it. Now I can't wait to project football games on it!!! And with the Best Buy deal of the day, I was able to purchase both the projector and screen for $299.99. Worth every penny...

    So, I was skeptical buying one of these. But, I needed something like this for travel for work. The picture quality is amazing at most distances and the sound is even better. I was using the sound for personal reasons for playing xbox and watching movies but this thing can't be beat at the price point. Sound quality is great for a small projector, could be better but I will not complain because of the pricing. Video quality is on par with most full size projectors, plays video games and movies like a normal size projector would. Definitely recommend.

    Good Projector for outdoor use

    Bought this projector on a whim. Figured for the price it would work well for outside use while playing in the pool or spa. It works best under very low to no light conditions, but the picture quality is outstanding and speakers are ok even without a soundbar or external amp. Keep in mind if you buy this w/ the inflatable screen, the projector broadcast in 16:9 ratio (rectangle) while the screen is square. So you will lose the side of the picture.

    I am very happy with this projector! This projector provides amazing clarity on the screen. It is also small and lightweight, so it's perfect for travel. Because the bulb is LED, the projector does not get hot to touch; there is no need to let it cool down before packing it away. The projector also has a "Keystone" adjustment button, which eliminates distortion of the image when the device is tilted up. For the price, it offers great value!

    So, it has to be incredibally dark to view this property, but we have had a lot of fun with it.vwe have had it outside a couple of times, once on the fence and once on the inflatable screen and both times it worked well. The most fun it's been though, is when we put it in my son's room on the wall and played black ops. Sound quality is surprisingly rich from such a small box, but does leave a bit to be desired...

    This projector has been amazing for its size and specs! I was told it would look best in a very dark environment as it has a low number of lumens, however it has worked just fine even without it being in a blacked out room. Of course the display is better when the room it’s in is as dark as possible. It has a great display and amazing sound for the size. The only thing that would make it perfect would be a remote!

    Good for a portable projector

    This projector is very small and portable. For the size, the sound is not bad. Since it is only 100 lumens brightness, you can pretty much only use this when it’s very dark. It’s OK for a backyard movie night, but there is a night and day difference when compared to a full size projector. Although the price is higher, I ended up getting the Epson 760HD, which has over 3,000 lumens. The Epson fits my needs much better.

    This compact projector packs a huge punch. Clear projection and the amplified speaker has a range that doesn’t require external speakers. Ok, it runs on its own battery...wait, what! No power cords while in play, nice! Now go outside and enjoy your summer evenings like we are.

    Great product! I can plug in a DVD player, computer or phone and project it. We have projected on our garage door, kids bedroom wall, and even ceilings. You can plug in a portable speaker (like a JBL 3) and enhance the sound. I can not say enough how great this product is. Used it for birthday parties and all the kids loved it. It's like having your own movie theater!

    I purchased this over the weekend for the big fight on Saturday. I was a little hesitant due to not sure what to expect for the picture clarity. To my amazement and everyone else that was at our fight night party was indeed beyond impressed especially for the price. Now I have it for family movie nights in our back yard. would certainly recommend it.

    Might be fine for movies but nothing with text. The dial used for focusing is a bit touchy and just doesn’t have the ability to produce crisp images. If you look closely too the image has a grid on it like you’re watching through a screen door. The size was great and hookup was simple. Easy to use just definitely not for business or HD. I wouldn’t spend list for this.

    I was looking for something on the lower price range to use for informal meetings at work. While I wouldn’t use this to give a presentation to a large group or customers it’s perfect for our internal team education / meetings. Easy to use and battery lasted through the entire 2 hour meeting.

    I purchased for occasional use for outdoor movie night with my 5 year old grandson. Great picture image and the built in sound is really impressive. Great starter projector! Also great in the basement, needs to be dark for best image quality. I would recommend.

    Cool Projector for Personal Use

    A nice projector for use in home and for kids. Not the brightest display available and any kind of ambient light detracts from the picture. However, as a speaker, this is stellar! A whole lot of sound from such a small device. That was truly shocking. The internal battery lasts for about 3 hours on a full charge and makes the unit ultra portable.
