    This just came out and is worth every penny! Is portable and has a built in battery that last for almost 2 hours! I’ve been playing with this since I got it, to play movies in the backyard and indoor on a wall is awesome, of course that if you use a real screen projector the screen will come out better, but everyone in my family and friends couldn’t believe how good it was, it has built in speaker not that loud but nothing that a portable speaker can fix (using auxiliary cable) it said a it goes to 80” but I’ve cover most of my wall and it’s awesome, if playing bright movies is better but for dark/low beam movies is not as great BUT duable. The smaller the picture the better quality, but again, for the price you cannot go wrong... Give it a try, I’m for sure not returning this, using it for beach nights aswell :) I also added a 2yr plan so Incase something does go wrong they will fix or replace, I forgot what they said... either way, my money on this thing is safe for the time.. as an example I played a movie in my son closet wall and well you can be the judge. :)

    Not too bad for price. But expense add up pretty quick. If you have an HDMI cord and an adapter that connects the device to your phone then maybe it would be worth the money. But I didn't have any of that. By the time I purchased all the wires and cords I needed it was almost $300. I should have just gone with a mini projector that has a better built in speaker and bluetooth, that would have probably been that much anyway. Picture quality wasn't bad at all. Sound was very low, needs to be hooked up to speakers. You would probably have to use an Aux cord with.

    Was very excited to receive this after reading the reviews. I teach kindergarten and its a great product to use to display and show visuals. the size works perfectly. However the device is portable but not blue tooth and only works if the HDMI for my iPad or phone is connected to a power source. Plus it heats up in 5 minutes and shuts off. This is not cool while in the middle of teaching a lesson. Am extremely disappointed and will be returning it.

    Love it. Only thing that is sort of annoying is it seems pretty loud. But you don’t notice it after a while. Unless you think about it. Lol. Like while writing this review. Nice when you have a sick little one in your bed and don’t have a tv in your room. Highly recommend getting a chromecast and just casting from your phone or other device.

    This is a great machine: extremely light and easy to use. But its greatness is only relevant if all you want to do is to do things such as project pictures to share with friends and family in your own living room. But if you plan to use it as a portable projector for business purpose, it would not work. The problem is simple: it is NOT bright enough in any kind of business conference room

    I'm so unhappy this didn't work. Planned to use for education for our non-profit. So it sucks even more that had to pay a restocking fee for the return. The display was so dim, even at dark on white walls we couldn't make out a lot of detail. Was hopeful from other reviews, now wondering why do you sell this if your staff admits it's not that bright?

    This projector is small making it very convenient if need to transport from one location to another. I only gave it four stars cause I wanted to use it to show movies for an event at my home. Unfortunately, the battery life is only 100 min. Most movies are at least 2 hours. But the battery is rechargeable.

    Great projector for a small, dark room

    I had bought the projector without much research and did not expect top quality resolution from a small projector. If you're looking for a home theater and wanting to replace a tv, I recommend looking for a larger, brighter projector.

    The quality of the picture really surprised me for being such a small projector. The only thing is that I can’t find much accesories for it like a tripod o a tall base. But it’s great to use on walls. It was an open box item but like new.

    My projector stopped working and I had to go immediately to find another one. Stepped into Best Buy and I was quickly given this projector. It was the best purchase, Much better than my previous one.

    It’s easy enough to use and operate. Just make sure the room is dark or atleast dim. Also you will need a stand or platform to prop it up if you want it to project at an angle.

    Given the limitations of only 50 lumens, this unit does a very good job. For a small and dark space, it may be all you need, for a lot less money than its brighter competitors.

    I bought this so my kids could have movie night in the backyard. The image quality was nice and for the price I wasn't worried about it being used outdoors.

    We were in desperate need of projectors. We ordered two projectors and were completely surprised. These projectors were more than what we expected. Glad we purchased them!

    Bought this for small meeting presentations. Works surprisingly well in semi-daylit room projected directly onto a white wall. No screen needed.

    I was happily surprised when I saw video and presentations display clearing in a moderately lite room. For its size, it does a really good job.

    Its a great projector except for the fact that you have to position it just right for screen size, as theres no manual adjustment except the focus dial.

    I use this projector for small group meetings (10-25 people), but could be used for bigger groups. Easy to carry around and use.
