Make every night movie night with the Discovery Expedition Wonderwall projector. The Wonderwall--which connects to your TV, DVD, camcorder, or video game console--projects an image up to 7.5 feet wide on any wall in your home, even the ceiling. As a result, you can catch up on your favorite cable series, watch the latest Hollywood blockbuster, or go for the head shot in Call of Duty on a surface that's far larger than most TVs. The Wonderwall also offers a 1.7-inch LCD (with 480 x 240 resolution) and built-in stereo sound, giving you a rich audio/visual experience. Plus, the projector is easy to operate, with an intuitive control panel that offers volume, contrast, color, and on/off controls.

Other features include an A/V input, a headphone jack, an LED indicator light, a 1.7-inch LCD, and a 5,500 ppm radiator fan. The Discovery Expedition Wonderwall projector--which includes a standard 50-watt MR-16 halogen bulb for hours of super-sized fun--projects at a distance of up to 6 feet.

I read the negative reviews all over the web about this projector, and was nervous to even try it. Well, it was on sale on Black Friday, so I took the plunge. I'm so glad I did, because it performed better than I was expecting.

YES, the image is grainy if you make the image size 6-8 feet across.

YES, the produced image is a little less bright than what you would normally expect from a movie theater projector.

But, this product is perfectly good enough to watch some kids movies on the wall, or play some video games all blown up. I watched a couple of movies, and feel like I made a great purchase.

One other thing to realize- When you project a movie and wind up with a 6-8 foot wide image, you will think it looks grainy just like you do when you sit one foot in front of a television.

Put this projector on maximum distance from the wall, then move back as far back from the movie as possible, and you will see that the farther away you actually go from the image, the clearer it looks. This just seems like common sense.

I get the idea from other reviewers that they expect to blow up a movie to ten feet wide, sit right in front of it on their couch and expect it to look perfect without any grainy appearance. HELLO!??! They wouldn't sit a foot away from a TV would they?

Some reviewers mentioned the fan being too loud, and that the built-in speaker was insufficient. I disagree. The speaker was actually really good on my unit, and I didn't even hear the fan at all, laying on the floor 2 feet away from it. Don't pay attention to those people, this thing exceeded my expectations by a mile.

How I got it setup properly: Hung a white sheet on the wall, because it is assumed white backgrounds will work best.

i got this for the purpose of showing movies or playing games outside on nice summer nights. the resolution is low, focus is iffy, and screen image gets nowhere near 10' as the box states without fading too much. speaker is terrible, but you can direct the sound cables to a stereo or something that produces better quality.

high quality projectors cost $100 to RENT. low-end HQ projectors are roughly 10x the price to buy. this is an insanely cheap projector and does everything it should be expected to do at that price. the a/v inputs are versatile, and most types of computers/games/dvd players/vcrs etc. can use them (or have adapters available). used properly, it functions adequately. it's not near perfect, but it's a totally fair budget option, and those who feel that it isn't have way too strong a sense of entitlement.

A durable and lightweight portable projector intended for gaming or casual entertainment.

Pros:
Price
Durability
Large lens range (Display throw can be very close and very far away)

Cons:
Low Resolution
Moderate Fan Noise
Lack of VGA input (Though this can be easily remedied)

I believe this product is sorely underrated. The Discovery Projector IS a projector, and when I can say that I bought a projector for around eighty dollars, that is an achievement. This product is not meant to be used in a home theater-- it is for someone who needs access to a TV but may not have it. I bought this product because buying a TV would not be as portable or versatile, and a whole lot more expensive.
For those looking to connect to a laptop, look for a VGA to RCA cable. If you look in the right place, it can't be more than $5-10.

Thought this would be perfect for the kids in our basement rec room. Weren't looking for high quality and we can make the room completely dark. The projector was very simple to connect to our DVD player but the picture clarity was awful. Even in the pitch black the picture was faint, and if the background was light you couldn't see the picture at all. Really had high hopes.

This product does exactly what it is intended to do; namely provide some fun and entertainment for the odd occasion when you want to display an image on a wall or perhaps against the back of your house on a summer evening. Viewed in it's proper perspective, this projector will provide fun for kids and the kids living among us all. It's certainly not an HD projector, and it certainly is not meant to replace or take the place of a tv or large screen tv.

I've read all of the negative reviews and simply cannot understand what the expectations are for a projector that utilizes a standard halogen floodlight bulb that can be bought at Home Depot and is easily replaceable and costs WELL under $100 (and that I purchased on a Black Friday special at Kohl's for darn near half that). Sure, it's not crystal clear and crisp in image. Sure, the sound isn't dolby stero. Sure, script and written images aren't clearly legible. But darn-this thing projects dvd images (particularly nice if you've got a ton of older black and whites such as I record from TCM) and produces acceptable sound which can be enhanced by plugging in an inexpensive pair of PC type speakers via the headphone jack. If I use this a few times a year in the backyard with family/friends it will suit my needs.

If you want to spend $500 for a DLP HD projector with a bulb that will cost you major bucks to replace and that's your application, great. If that is the case, you're comparing apples to oranges. If you're looking for a relatively inexpensive novelty type item that you can kick around and have some real fun with-this fits that bill. For me, blowing up the image gives a sort of faux theatre experience, even if the image is not pristine.
