In my situation I was only looking for a personal unit to use in my office in a darkened environment with a white projector screen and a laptop/notebook computer to display Windows WMV video files and Apple Quicktime MOV video files. It appears that the MPRO110 may meet my very minimal requirements since I will be the only one using it as a study aid. The picture at maximum distance, projects large enough (nearly as large as my 61" Sony rear projection TV) in my case, which may justify the use of the MPRO110. However what is displayed is not equivalent or even close to the original display output because the brightness and sharpness of the image are not sufficient for most purposes.
The good, the bad, the ugly:
1. The MPRO110 cable for PC/laptop/notebook connectivity is way TOO short and in my opinion should be at least 3ft-4ft in length.
2. The MPRO110 unit really does needs a stand or tripod to rest on at sufficient height to allow the greatest distance 1800mm (71") around 6ft, in order to achieve maximum picture size and to justify its actual use.
3. The MPRO110 power connector cable should have been at the back because it seems to keep pulling the unit off balance because of the short length of the VGA cable despite its own ability to swivel around at the contact point.Read more ›
Don't waste your money! The reason you would buy this is to do presentations on the road, where the portable nature of the unit makes it easy to transport. Sure--it is very small, but the output is absolutely terrible. Why would you want to show any product or presentation through a dirty lens? That's what it looks like. Its like trying to hold up a candle to a negative or slide and trying to view it. The resulting image is skewed, fuzzy, and, in many cases, unreadible. I had it hooked up to my notebook computer with a 13" display and I compared both images. Realize that I had darkened the room to almost black (which is hard to do in most business environments) and the image on my notebook computer was stunning compared to the 3M output. It was like a weak flashlight trying to light up a Powerpoint. Waste of money. I returned the same day it came in, and had a 15% restocking fee for the piece of junk. This is the first product that I knowingly bought made by 3M. It is an embarrassment and certainly will make me think twice about buying a 3M-branded product. Stick with conventional alternatives or use your notebook display. Pocket the $300-$400 and let it grow for 30 years.
As mentioned by others, the display is only VGA so you can't expect
laptop quality when projected 8 feet away. I actually use mine at up to 12 foot distance in a 80 to 90% darkened room.
The VGA cable is definitely a hassle due to it being only about 2 feet long and quite stiff. I'm looking for a replacement out of convenience rather than necessity.
If using a tripod, which I do and reccomend, I suggest, for stability you get the heaviest one you can. Mounting up on a tripod allows better cooling (there is no cooling fan) and that may convert to longer life since heat is notorious for slowly destroying electronics.
I've sampled 2 other brands and overall I'm still happy with this unit.
I recommend this projector to people who do small scale presentations in hotel rooms or customer's living rooms. It's better than having five people crowd around a laptop's screen, but it's nowhere near as nice as hooking into a big LCD monitor/TV
