1. The advertised resolution is only 854x480 (WVGA), but during boot-up and initial config the unit told me it was switching to 720p mode. Theoretically, that'll get you DVD quality or basic HD, depending on which you believe. HOWEVER, I've used it to watch several different kinds of media (animation, TV and film) and no matter what I throw at it, in practice the picture is very, very , very soft. There is a manual focus wheel, but it doesn't achieve anything like the kind of sharpness you can achieve with a regular full sized projector, much less a plasma, LCD or CRT display. Honestly, I'd say maximum visual sharpness is roughly on par with a good VHS tape player (i.e., maybe a 480i picture). My eyes have become so trained to expect tack-sharp LCD and plasma displays that it's really hard for me to enjoy watching this for very long. It brings back memories of watching broadcast TV on my parents' old Zenith tube TV.
2. At only 60 lumens, the picture is pretty dim. For comparison, most inexpensive consumer projectors emit 600-2000+ lumens. To put it into even starker contrast, I own three Coast LED flashlights that put out 251, 339 and 615 lumens. Yes, my smallest flashlight puts out 4x the light of this projector. So imagine shining a rather dim flashlight on your wall: that'll give you a good idea how (not) bright this projector is. In a dimly-lit room in the evening after sundown, the picture certainly is watchable, but you really want the room to be in darkness for best effect. Of course you can make it better with a specially reflective screen or white theater paint, but that may defeat the purpose of a portable projector.
3. The combination of low brightness and a soft picture means you really shouldn't get your hopes up that this will drive a big 120" screen like the advertising copy claims. Over around 45-50", the picture starts to get kind of washed-out, and of course the bigger it gets the more you notice its unsharpness.
4. On the good side, it is easy to use and ridiculously small - I have coffee cups larger than this projector. That makes it very portable, very flexible, and easy to store when not in use. It was easy to set up (less than 5 minutes), attach to my WPA2 WiFi network, make a Roku account and start using Netflix and Amazon Instant Video. My kids were operating it five minutes after that.
5. Also on the good side, It does have a single MHL video input, which (although the ad copy is silent about this) is a standard HDMI port. That's a positive benefit, because it means the projector is NOT a one-trick pony. You can use it with your cable box, TiVo, DVD player, blu ray player, game console, computer, camcorder, camera, tablet, etc. That's awesome.
So what is this thing good for? In two words: uncritical viewing. Kids' use, sleepovers, outdoor projection at night onto a garage, holiday effects projected onto your house, etc. If that's what you're looking for, then this projector delivers a lot of fun, value and convenience. Still, I wonder if that's enough to justify the retail price for most people, most of the time. Caveat emptor, you might like this a lot if you have reasonable expectations, otherwise, stick to your regular TV for group watching, or use your tablet or phone for portable viewing.
Here's what I tried:
- Plugging into a small boombox - no one could hear the movie
- Spent $70 on a go-groove type speaker and plugged that into the aux out - no one could hear when people were talking in the movie. However if I plugged that thing into my android or anything else, my wife would ask me to turn it down.
- Spent $220 on an EXTREMELY LOUD boom box (Sangean Fatbox - this thing is great check it out)
This boom box is so loud that if I crank it playing from FM or from aux-in from my droid or iPod... I'm pretty sure the cops will be coming to the house eventually.
So I also bought a headphone amplifier - a FiiO 6 - which seemed to QUADRUPLE the sound volume from e.g. my iPod.
So what happened when I plugged in the aux-in from the 3m Streaming projector, plugged that into the FiiO amplifier, and cranked the Fatbox to 40? It was louder, but people still had trouble hearing when people were talking. I was having a party and my solution was to plug my macbook into this device instead of using the roku stick, watch the movie from there - the sound output level was great and it was soooo loud. So... that worked but kind of defeats the purpose of the roku stick.
My recommendation would be to keep the above in mind ... you may still want this thing but plan on investing in an even better line-out amplifier (I think the FiiO 6 cost like $25 ... maybe their $50 model would dot the trick?).
