We do presentations in many locations and most of the rooms are not setup for presentations. We have used walls, screens, and white erase boards as surfaces and it works on all of them very well. Remember this is a 200 lumen system and may not be bright enough if you are expecting it to work like the big ones. Also get the Apple adapter if you are going to use an iPad or iPhone.
The total cost is going to be more than the price, you will likely want a longer HDMI cord if you are using it corded to you iPad or tablet plus the items described above, but is a great value.
However, the next day at the office is when I decided to give it the real test in an actual meeting presentation. Unfortunately, it does not handle any type of light/bright background, or colors that are 'light.' You must use dark colors in fonts, sometimes bold them so that they appear legible. Also, The words still appear somewhat 'fuzzy' no matter how you focus. The people in the meeting loved the mini projector as a novelty or entertainment piece at home, but; consensus was that they would never use it in a business meeting with a client as the image is not professional enough.
I didn't test the built-in speakers.
I tried with my iPhone 5s and iPad mini - and works with both.
1. Definitely use for playing videos or entertainment at home. A good complement as part of your 'backyard' movie night.
2. Easy to hook up, very portable.
3. Well designed as for the buttons and functionality
4. Is compatible with MS Powerpoint and Apple Keynote
5. Uses HDMI connection. For older laptops with no HDMI connection, you need to get an adaptor (HDMI to USB or display port). I had an adaptor for an older macbook pro, and tested, and it works well with the adaptor.
6. Distant was good - as what is mentioned in the box.
7. Flexible AC adapter - comes with US and Europe plugs.. both removable.
1. Would not use it for business - words appear 'fuzzy' and granular. Granular being the main issue - makes it challenging to read.
2. Some of the images I had in my presentations are a light grey, and they did not appear on the screen. It doesn't handle 'light images, words with a font color of grey or lighter colors (yellow, etc... You are constrained in creating your presentations because of the lack of it not being able to transmit lighter colors.
3. When it is turned on, it is very loud. Was surprised how loud this thing was - it could be a bit distracting.
4. You definitely need to buy the tripod, sits right on a table, and your huddled around since it projects at table level.
5. No carry case - $430 gadget, and no case to protect it.
6. When you use the focus to get clarity on one slide, and then advance, I noticed that slides that have lots of different fonts, images, lighter colors, you have to refocus for it to appear sharper for that slide.
7. Gives your overall presentation a less then professional look
In summary: Not ready for business, would never use it to meet with a client or prospective client - does not portray a professional image on the screen, and for your business in general. Great for home entertainment. I returned my to Brookstone for a refund.
I purchased it directly from Brookstone, brand new. I wanted to use it for business presentations (but I planned on enjoying some of it's PS4 COD Ghosts potential as well!) Here's what I found after 3 weeks:
- Somewhat bright enough in a somewhat dim room. It's great if you're in the dark, but if you can't shut out much light, prepare to have a washed out image.
- All HDMI input is squished a bit. Literally, take the aspect ratio and push the sides in. It's not like a major noticeable problem, unless your presentation has a circular graph that becomes a slight oval, or you get really irritated when your circular scope in COD becomes slightly an oval scope. You get the idea.
- Focus, or the lack thereof. Imagine that hairline shower temperature problem you've experienced in the past. Now imagine instead of too hot or too cold, imagine just a lot of blurry unless you get it just right by a hair.
- Sound, or the lack thereof. I assumed sound would be bad. I mean, this thing is small. What I didn't expect, was the line out to be barely audible. Let me be clear, you will need to amplify the sound signal. If you are using headphones, at 100% volume this thing barely put out enough sound to make you forget about the fan cooling the system. I have a powered bass boosting pair of headphones, and it was miserable.
- The Keystone. You only have 1 choice, head on, or at a +/- 40 Degree angle. Not bad, if a whole quarter of my screen worked and didn't become dead pixels when in keystone mode. I'm not joking, I lost a fourth of the screen to dead pixels when in keystone.
Now I would assume I got a bad unit. I would assume any one of these problems would be a bad unit. My issue is, I had all of these issues, and they all come from various hardware and software aspects of the device. Even if one of the issues were resolved by switching the unit out, the others would have remained.
Simply put, for $450 I expect this thing to sing and dance. That's the price of an iPad friends. What can your iPad do?
I took this thing back and got my money back. I advise skipping out on this one.
