    Amazing little projector

    If you're looking to dip into the mini projector market, look no further. This one is it. Here's my take on the features: 1. Small form factor with a universal tripod mount 2. 15 lumens LED that will last a lifetime; brightness is sufficient for a dark room 3. No noisy fan since it's a low lumen LED. This is great because you can actually get by with the built in speaker. Better paired with external speakers that you can easily connect via the 3.5mm audio out jack. 4. Built-in battery and HDMI port. Just plug in your favorite streaming media player and you're good to go. Note: If you get the Amazon Fire TV stick, you can pair it with a bluetooth speaker and not have to worry about running an audio cord to the speaker. I highly recommend you give this a try. 5. Image quality is respectable. It's sufficiently bright in a dark room and decent enough to watch a movie. As others reviewers have mentioned, don't expect this to replace your TV or higher end projector. But it's probably THE BEST pico DLP projector at this price range. You can cast as big of an image as you want by moving it further from the wall, but, of course, the picture will get dimmer as it gets bigger. I've projected an image as big as 84" (diag.) in a dark room and I was able to enjoy the movie. 6. There's no keystone correction, so get yourself a cheap camera tripod and prop it up to a level where keystone-ing is not as issue. 7. Focus is the only area of complaint, but ALL projectors have issues with the focus. It takes a while to tweak it right to get the image focused well. And the problem is the slightest movement of the projector could cause the image to go out of focus. But this is a minor complaint because once focused, if you don't touch it, you can sit back and watch without worries. Highly recommended, but understand what you're getting and you'll be thoroughly satisfied. Wait for a sale and use Visa Checkout.

    It's Not A Bad Projector Just Not For Me...

    It's a little projector that works but can be a big pain to use. This is my first Pico style projector so I wasn't sure what to expect. Its picture, considering the size, resolution and lumens was really good. I was of course using it outside and at night for movie night so no real light issues to interfere. Picture quality was great as well again considering its size and resolution. However with its size come certain problems that I had not contemplated. Oddly enough its size to me is its downfall. It doesn’t connect via Bluetooth or any other wireless method. This didn't seem to be a big deal at first until you realize most cables you’re going to use weight more than the projector. Problem being an HDMI cable wants to bend and have its own way so the projector wouldn't stay straight. Constantly trying to keep it from moving became a chore. Plugging an external speaker in wasn't bad and you really do need one as the internal speaker at least for us wasn't doing the job. Only real problem with sound was turning up and down the volume with the little buttons as it doesn’t have a remote and that darned HDMI cable would move the projector. I think if the unit could connect via Bluetooth or some other wireless technology it would have been a keeper but trying to keep the projector from moving made it an unpleasant experience. And in all honesty I can't think of any scenario where this projector would work as you will always need to connect via an HDMI cable. Sadly that was the only real problem. Any other complaints about picture quality, lumens, etc. should be expected considering the specs of the unit.

    Some people may look at this and say, "I can spend $100-$200 more and get a much better projector!" But I got this on sale for $99. My previous $800 4K tv was hit by lightning and I had no warranty. I'm not rich and had 2 back to back surgeries that have kept me out of work so money was tight! I had a budget of $140 for a new tv. My 4K was 55" so on that budget I could only afford a 32" MAX! After reviewing this projector which states it can go up to 55", I decided to try it out. I had 15 days to return it if I was unhappy. That is not the case. It may not be 4K UHD resolution, but for $99 (on sale) it's phenomenal!!! Yes with the low lumen output it's not the best for a bright room. I just used blackouts on my windows, and with my surround sound system, it's like I'm at the movies!!!!! Fantastic product!!! I'm actually waiting on them to go back on sale to purchase 2 more. I have since bought another 4K tv for the living room, but I'm getting one for each of the kid's rooms. I put this one in our bedroom. The kids can't "accidentally " knock it over and break an expensive tv. I've already recommended this product to a lot of my friends and family!!!!!

    Bang for buck

    I was personally skeptical due to price and size. After purchasing from my local store im glad i did! While yes it requires a darker atmosphere then most $200 and more projectors, its quite pleasing to watch. My current setup: About 10 feet away from wall its projeced on Picture is 57in corner to corner Gold played hdmi cable(included one) The picture quality seems a tad higher then advertised when carefully focused and lighting is dark. I enjoy watching my movies and tv of a evening on this. It says it only goes up to 50in. Im at almost 60in and it looks just as good. My AT&T uverse box has a usb port. So it gets its imput and power from the tv box. With this setup it only takes one outlet plug. The built in speeker is not as bad as people say. To my amazement this thing has an audio jack! Taking advantage of it is definitely a good move. My conclusion: Absolutely the best bang for your buck! There is a smaller cube model for $150. IT DOES NOT HAVE A HEADPHONE JACK. This $100 slim model is better in my opinion. Offering hdmi and audio out is the selling point. I do recommend and would buy again.

    This is possibly the smallest projector I have seen. It is not super bright and requires a fairly dark room for a clearly visible image. The image quality works well enough for games and movies. But, due to the low resolution, small text and graphics are unreadable and blurry. The audio is also not very loud, but you can plug in external speakers. The projector includes a full sized HDMI port, which is rare on pico-projectors. It also has a built in battery that allows it to work without having to plug it in while using it. If you're not expecting this to compete with a $500-$600 projector, this is a nice small cheap projector.

    This is my very first projector. The packaging was great and I love the size of this projector. Plug and play worked well, but the audio was less than nominal. This should be expected with such a small device with HDMI connected (which sends the audio through the projector's small speakers). I found it worked fairly well in small spaces, but the light output and screen size was way too small for my taste. I returned it for those reasons, but it might be a good starter for a young adult or camping. I would only recommend it for viewers not requiring a screen size past 29" or so for clear text readings. Other video images will work past 29" but are not as bright (as expected).

    Great, except for small texts

    The projector lasts for about 1.5 hours while hooked up to my Xbox One. Everything works great, the light output, as many others have said, it needs a dark room to work well. Size is about half of my phone size. The sound, is amazing as well, beating even other $200 standard non pico projectors that I own. Given the resolution, the small text is hard to read at a size of 50". However, if it is for movies and things where you do not need to read small text, then this projector is great. I have even projected up to a size of 80" and it is still great. Bottom line: not good for small text, but all else it is great.

    You have to keep in mind that these really small pico type projectors aren’t going to give you the image of a real – dedicated projector. Brightness is always going to be lacking, and this is definitely the case with this unit. Yes, it’s small and compact. As long as you understand it’s shortcomings it will serve its purpose. I’d estimate that up to 32 inches the picture looks relatively good . Over that, and quality starts to degrade. That being said, even in a dark room – this doesn’t give you a really bright, crisp picture. Again – it’s really small and therefore not packing a really powerful light source.

    Too dim for professional use

    As I hadn't purchased a pocket projector before, I was unsure of how many lumens would be appropriate for use in a professional (office) setting. While I was able to get decent quality at a distance which allowed for a 6 ft projection (powerpoint), it was so dim I had to turn off all of the lights so I could see it. It would be great for a very small group that only needs a small screen, but I might as well just use my laptop at that point. Also, the item says it can run video mirrored from your smartphone, but no adapter in the package - I returned it the next day and bought a standard size.

    I was hesitant to purchase this projector due to the limited lumens. But the tiny size and battery were enticements. I was pleasantly surprised by the brightness and image quality for such a small projector. I also purchased a table-top screen and an iPhone cable adapter to use with this at conferences for a table-top display setup. This will be very portable and convenient for the intended use. This projector would not be advisable if you are thinking about a solution for a group of people to watch a large display.

    Movie theater anywhere just bring bedsheets

    This projector is great. Bring some bedsheets and you have yourself a great little backyard or camping movie theater. The projector works great in the dark, you must purchase the Apple HDMI to Lightneen adapter if you want to hook it up to your iPhone. I suggest getting the Apple adaptor and watching some Netflix under the stars. The projector features a Aux out so you can hook up some speakers to make a real movie experience. I recommend playing it off your IPhone and connecting it to Bluetooth. It's a ton of fun and great for families too.

    I bought this for two reasons. Wife teaches young kids and the thought of a portable projector was fun for those times she would like to project videos and we could do simply with the adapter to connect the projecter with an iphone. This has been a huge success, and very easy setup on the go. Secondly, I imagined a way to play nintendo nes on the go. When I learned that I could power the NES with my powerbank I knew this would work and now We are able to play anywhere we go. It is awesome! Small projector worth the deal price I paid of $100

    I love this thing projects 50 inch screen on to the wall and is smaller then sell phone. Yes there one that higher brightness. But they are double or triple this. I got mine when it was on sale for $99.00 - $25 visa checkout bonus visa was running on bestbuy.com. So that plus best rewards certificates of $10. I end getting this thing for $65. There no way you can beat that kinda of value. This is in my daily go bag and pear it up with chromecast and you project anything to it. Love love it. My kid is enjoying it as well.

    Purchased when it was on sale for $50 off the regular price. In the end, it is what you pay for. The picture is not very bright, but for kids in a dark room it would be great. Very light which is both a plus and a minus. Easy to carry due to size and weight, but can be a little unstable with the HDMI cable pushing it around for same reason (size and weight). Too blurry if you expect to read numbers or letters like would be found in Excel or other Office product. I would recommend for kids, but not much use for others.

    I bought this projector to trace pictures to canvas for my oil painting projects. It works great! Bought the connection so I can use my ipad or phone to project the picture to the canvas. It works great. The darker the room, the better. It would also work nicely for overnight camping and project a movie from your phone onto the tent wall---just sayin!

    I bought this projector to work on a presentation but to my surprise it was more that what I expected. I connected it to my laptop (Mac Book Pro) after purchasing an adapter and watched Netflix for hours. It's not the greatest but for the price and convenience, I'd recommend it. The biggest issues are the lack of a remote (you have to control everything through your laptop) and setting it up for display. The unit doesn't sit level making the picture display slanted. Overall not a bad item and very easy to carry

    Yes, it's cheap, and not as high end as the hundreds or thousands of dollars more for the other projectors. Small and compact. I knew what it's capabilities and limitations were when I bought it, so I wasn't expecting very much. But it functions well for the price. Yes, you do need a nearly complete dark room to view comfortably, but it's everything previous reviews have mentioned. Not going to be a high-end product for the price, so don't expect it to be.

    I had been in the market for a projector for quite some time, but I didn't want to pay alot for that metaphorical muffler. The Miroir was on sale for a cool $100, so I decided to give it a go. I couldn't be more pleased! The projected video from my phone looked awesome in my living room even with a couple of lights on. That is to say, it needn't be completely dark to enjoy this little fella.

    I bought this project for an elementary school project. The sales rep definitely let us know that it was a low end projector and should be used in a very dark space. That was fine since we bought it so that our 2nd grader could trace an image onto a large tri-fold. It is not to be mistaken for an HD home theater quality projector, but my husband and I were surprised at the image quality. It most definitely exceeded our expectations!

    Great price for a great product - I needed something portable to use in the small meeting setting this really fit the bill very affordable excellent resolution plug right into your iPhone and Watch downloaded video or stream video the only drawback is the internal speakers are not very loud so you'll need to use small speakers if your group size is over four people - has great battery life overall awesome product for the price
