This purchase was NOT USEFUL WITH A LAPTOP this was a substandard model of a projector that is why this item is being returned.

I tried it out in a room during the daytime with window blinds down and I was surprised at how nice the projector worked on a plain wall which was clearly visible.

I was looking forward to trying this out after reading the few available online reviews and Acer advertisements with the intention to use for laptop Powerpoint presentations and portable media center (camping trips, etc.). The standout features are low price and exceptional brightness compared to other pico projectors. Go to Acer support for links to specification sheet and user manual.

What is not mentioned in every review I've seen and actually wrongly stated in a few YouTube reviews, this will NOT work with Mac OS or Android OS systems. Seems that Acer conveniently left this out on their spec sheet, but it is clearly stated in their 10 page user manual. I was planning to use a cheap Dell Mini 9 netbook, portable speaker, and portable picoscreen to let the kids watch movies during camping trips. Forget about that plan (the video was choppy and VLC player actually crashed on the netbook which I've never seen before) since it turns out that netbooks do not provide enough CPU power to drive video playback on the C120 and you will need a minimum 2.0 Ghz Core 2 Duo. This info is also suspiciously left out of the spec sheet and buried in the user manual. The netbook works fine if you just intend to mirror display for your laptop office applications.

It works beautifully using the USB 3.0 port on two of our other laptops, HP ENVY 17 and HP ENVY 14 Beats (disappointed I couldn't use our Macs). The video is bright and smooth which is the main reason I still gave 4 stars. I tried it out in a room during the daytime with window blinds down and I was surprised at how nice the projector worked on a plain wall which was clearly visible. 100 ANSI lumens is sweet for a pico projector.

I try to keep my expectations reasonable. I knew that since this was small and low-priced, that I would be probably giving up some quality, but I had no idea. I do not know what the other reviewers were looking at. After examining it and reading everything that I could get my hands on to describe possible performance remedies, I was glad that Amazon took it back. Very, very dim. In a pitch black room with only a few feet of distance, it could be acceptable for a non-important meeting of friends. On no planet could this possibly function as a business tool. It is a toy at best. Thanks again Amazon. This is the first thing of hundreds of things that I have ever returned and I did not have to think very hard about it.

This projector works well for making business presentations in a moderately lit or dark room. It is much brighter than other pocket (PICO) projectors in this price range. Please note that you must use the AC adapter to achieve full brightness on this projector, and the adapter is larger and heavier than the projector! Be aware that this projector can ONLY be connected to a Microsoft PC/laptop (not a MAC, not an Android phone, not an IPhone, not a game system, and not your home theater equipment), and it only connects via USB (you need to have two free USB ports open). I purchased this projector to give business presentations to customers in conference rooms from my Windows7 laptop, and for that purpose it works well.

First Picon Projector i have used and its all that its adverstised. It is made for desktop presentations and for that use its great. The Mirror functionality is perfect for my work and will take whatever screen resolution your system is set for and project it. Use either the system power or add a power chord.
Its very small and compact, perfect for the traveler.

It does not have a lot of extras and focus is very basic, but i have found that using for just a desktop/confernece room table presentation it works just fine.

Remember when purchasing that you get what you pay. I have owned this for over a year now, and while it is does not offer what a $2K projector would, it is sufficient in every way. I have used this on the fly to give PowerPoint's, did a display of an electronic book that was purchased, and set it up on my laptop for the kids to watch a movie using this. So again if you are expecting $2K quality then look elsewhere if you are looking realistically and on a budget this is your projector. When I purchased this is was just under $200.

The single platform compatibility information should be a bit more readily available since I did not see it anywhere on the website or product description. The picture appears to be OK and it's a cute little machine but really, Windows only in this day and age?

I was hesitant to purchase this item as the reviews were mixed,and when it was delivered was almost afraid to connect it BUT this device lived up to and surpassed my expectations. I set it up at home with my notebook in a room bathed by the setting sun and the picture was sharp and clear. I took it to school the next day to share some videos and presentations with my class and set it up in the IT room with my netbook and with one bank of fluorescent lights on. The output was more impressive. Some of my colleagues couldn't understand how such a small unit could produce a picture so clear. At least two of them put the unit on their must have list. No bells and whistles but a purchase I have no regrets or misgivings about.
