A palm-sized, pocket projector, designed to go wherever you go. Click to enlarge.

Weighs just 1.4 pounds.

Illuminated touch-panel controls.

USB port with wide format support.

Easy Set-Up
The Joybee GP1 gets you going in a matter of seconds. Plug it in, insert your USB device or connect other media, raise the device to the desired viewing angle, focus your image and you're all set.

VGA and Composite Video
Connect your laptop using the GP1's VGA connection for Power Point presentations, streaming video, slideshows or anything else you can display.

A composite video input allows connection of video game systems, DVD players, and various other A/V devices. Devices with component outputs can be adapted to VGA.

USB Connectivity With Wide Format Support
On the back of the GP1 you'll find a USB port. Plug in thumb drives and USB devices with your favorite media for enjoyment on the GP1. Enjoy AVI/MOV/3GP/3G2/DivX/Xvid videos, JPEG/BMP/GIF/TIFF images, or just listen to your favorite MP3s.

LED3 Projection
Powered by BenQ's LED3 Technology, the GP1 is built to deliver a cinema-quality image, giving you clear, brilliant images with optimized brightness and contrast ratio.

Tripod-Ready
Stacking books under your projector may be a good idea when you want to get the projection height and angle you want, but here's a better idea--a tripod. The GP1 can be easily attached to a tripod for precise angling and adjustment.

100% Lamp-Free
The GP1 utilizes RGB LEDs as the projection light source instead of traditional projection lamps. Enjoy vivid, stunning picture without worrying about issues such as decrease in brightness, color fading, or expensive lamp replacement.

The LEDs also consume less power than traditional lamps, and are mercury-free, making the GP1 a greener choice.

Wall Color Correction
Can't find a smooth white wall? Not a problem. BenQ's Wall Color Correction technology offers a selection of five wall colors for various surfaces--even blackboards. Get outstanding projection quality wherever you go.

Built-in Speakers
BenQ completes the self-contained multimedia experience with a built-in 2-watt speaker, so you don't need to be next to an audio system to enjoy audio.

Of course, an audio output (stereo mini jack) is also included, so you can connect to a stereo or other system for a little more power.

Keystone-Perfect Viewing
Say goodbye to misshaped images, graphics, and charts--with the automatic keystone adjustment, a perfect square is all you'll see.

A Delightful Sight in Black and White
It always helps when your multimedia devices take design to heart. The GP1 features a sleek, high-gloss finish with smooth, rounded curves. It weighs in at just over a pound. The illuminated touch-panel controls are functional and attractive. It's a pico projector that doesn't skimp on looks.

Optional iPod Dock
Add the optional iPod dock for charging and enjoyment of your iPod. Without the dock, you can still enjoy iPod content via the RCA composite input (adapter needed).

What's in the Box
BenQ Joybee GP1 Mini Projector, Quick Start Guide, Soft Carry Case, Remote Control, Power Supply, Manual, CD, 30-Pin Cable With VGA/Composite Inputs

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I tend to make jokes about being a dinosaur. I'm not what you'd call real tech-savvy, and I don't generally purchase the newest and latest gadgets. Though my collection seems to be growing of late, one way or another, and I have to admit I'm having fun! Last month I was given the opportunity to review the BenQ Joybee GP1 Mini Projector through the Amazon Vine program. I'll be honest; I wasn't pining away for a mini-projector. Clearly, I didn't know what I was missing.

Now, you may be wondering if I'm even qualified to review this product. As it happens, I am. In my professional life, I'm an organizer of academic conferences. Out of necessity, I've had to learn how to jury rig the most creative AV set-ups, with never quite enough equipment to meet every professor's needs. I've been using full-sized, very expensive LCD projectors in every way it's possible to utilize the machines.

The BenQ mini project is mini indeed. It is a fraction the size of a traditional projector. It's almost exactly the size of a CD case, and about two and a half inches tall. It weighs about a pound and a half. It is insanely portable! Obviously, it's a great choice for anyone who has to travel and make presentations. It won't even cause a dent in your carry-on luggage.

I've found the machine to be reasonably intuitive to use. I say this, because the instructions were useless. The instruction booklet that came with the mini projector has no words. Literally. Just pictures. Seriously, there is only so much you can do with that. Aside from the picture book, there's a CD with extremely, extremely detailed information. I've got no time for that. I haven't even looked at it. So, the good news is I was able to figure everything out on my own.

I'm very satisfied with this projector. I set it up in my bedroom with a portable projector screen (60" wide) and fed it 720P and 1080i inputs thru the component outputs of my HD satellite receiver and DVD player,(Toshiba XD-E500, available on Amazon, DVD upscaled to both 720P/1080i)to the VGA connector on the projector and it performed admirably. I moved the projector back to fill the entire screen width (60") with a 16X9 picture and the clarity/sharpness when receiving 720P/1080i signalling was better than I expected. The picture with a dimly lit room was very watchable and with the room darkened was outstanding. The colors were bright and vivid and the brightness/contrast were excellent. I used a RCA component male x 3 to VGA female adapter cable, 1 ft. long,(vendor description-HD15 VGA female to RCA x 3 male double shielded, HD15 to component video, available from Wholesale Cables on Amazon), that mated to the projector's VGA male connector plus a 12 ft. component cable that mated with the adapter's 3 male RCA's thru 3 RCA female to female barrel connectors. I also used a video switching box for the video, 4 inputs/1 output, and audio switching box, 4 inputs/1 output for the L/R stereo audio (available from Radio Shack) so I wouldn't have to keep unplugging/plugging cables all the time. I connected the L/R stereo audio switcing box output to my video/Aux audio inputs on my Aiwa home stereo/CD unit. Setup was very easy as the projector has auto-keystone adjusting feature. The projector has pre-programmed selections for movies/photos/pc/brightest/user. The user setting allows the user to set their own desired picture settings as they wish. The projector distance from the screen to fill the 60" width of the screen was about 9 ft.Read more ›

The Joybee is small and light but it makes a huge screen and does very well for brightness. I am a teacher that travels to six different buildings and I like to project my computer on the wall. With the Joybee I can carry it in my bag (along with the cords that do not fit in the case with the projector) and use it in all of my buildings.

We've already tried out this tiny projector by running it off a laptop and off a memory stick, and were pleasantly surprised with how bright the display is and how simple it is to use. We tried it first in a room with thin shades on a very sunny day, so the room wasn't very dark -- it did well. When we were able to try it in a darker room, it did *very* well.

I agree with some minor drawbacks mentioned by others. The remote has no backlighting, so it's difficult to use in a really dark room. The focus mechanism is a little too touchy -- I had to fiddle a bit to get the focus right. And the on-screen interface to run a slideshow directly off a memory stick with multiple folders was a little awkward. However, as another reviewer suggested, if you just put all the photos in the root directory (folder) of the memory stick, then the interface isn't an issue.

We had waited a long time to buy a projector, and are very pleased with the value of this one.

UPDATE 11/3/10: Discovered a bug (or is it user error?) with running a slideshow off a memory stick. The sort order of the files is peculiar, so the slideshow may not run in the desired sequence. I created a slideshow using PowerPoint to generate JPG files in the same order as the original PPT show (e.g. Slide1, Slide2, Slide3...Slide40). However, the GP1 shows the files in this sequence instead: Slide15, Slide16...Slide40, Slide1, Slide2...Slide14
This makes the feature of creating a usable slideshow just on the memory stick pretty unusable.
