For people who want the versatility, this is a great option. Don’t let the size fool you, in all honesty because it is so small it’s amazingly convenient to pack and carry along with you! I was skeptic at first, because I have seen other projectors much bigger than this one and the quality wasn’t that great. But this tiny thing is legit! More than bright enough to watch video or play games in a dark room. Picture looks beautiful on our apartment wall, where we can fit it at about 70″. Sound is more than adequate. Given the price, it’s very impressive.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.

“Let me start off by sharing what my primary intention was when I purchased this projector. I wanted to be able to do a movie night when camping. I did not buy this to watch TV on all the time. I did not expect it to be the highest quality picture. With that being said, this projector did a fairly decent job of making my movie night happen. It is small and light which made it easy to setup. I had no issues with getting it on and focused. The adjustibility of the keystone made placement a breeze. the internal speaker is not worth much so I just plugged an external speaker into it. The software on the projector is kinda sad. It only read some file types off my hard drive or jump drive. I did get the Wifi to connect and stream from my phone but it was clunky. Also I couldn’t find a way to change audio track so a few of my movies were in the wrong language. I only used it at night in a dark area. I can’t imagine that it would be viewable in the daylight. I used a photography backdrop to project on to and that was much better than a wall. It was sharp enough for kids movies and decent quality video files. I will keep this in the RV for when we decide to do movie nights cause we had a blast. I recommend doing a test run at home when you have time to make sure you have it all working. I did receive a discount on this projector for my fair and honest opinion. I take these reviews very seriously and try to provide some real life experience while using it. Hopefully my review is of some help to you.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.

“I am quite impressed with this little projector. I ordered this to serve as an addition to our family entertainment system and couldn’t be more pleased. Taking three young children to the theatre is complicated at best, but now we have our own ‘movie night’ on the weekends.
It is small and compact so it doesn’t take up much room in the entertainment cabinet. The box included the projector itself, an AV cable, a power cord, and a remote (that you will need to add batteries to). We have been able to hook it up to our DVD player to project movies and also our tablet and laptops to play our saved files. There is also an option to use a SD card. This projector has it all covered.
The machine itself is easy to operate and has adjustable focus and leveling on the side. There are numerous options offered to be able to connect different devices, just keep in mind that you will need to supply your own cords accordingly. After watching a 2 hour movie connected to our DVD player, the projector did not run hot to the touch. The sound quality is average as to be expected with projectors so we hooked up our sound bar and it worked perfectly.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.

The volume/menu button is tricky to use, could have been designed better. Battery life is close to as advertised (2 hrs). Should have bundled a carry case too.
