I bought this mount for my Microvision Showwx projector and think it is very well built. The only issue I didn't like is that you can only use it attached to a computer. Because it has a Tripod hole, this mount would be excellent to use everytime you use the ShowWx but you cannot because of the VGA Cable. Unless, you modify it. There are special screws that hold the mount together. If you flip over the mount you will see 4 screw holes near the rear of the mount. Two on the mount itself and two on the portion where the plug attaches. These screw are used to hold on the plastic cover where the plug attaches. If you get a small flathead screw driver (for eyeglass repair) it will work at loosening these 4 screws. I saved the screws and put them in the box. With the screws removed, flip the mount right side up and remove the silver plastic cover near where the plug attaches. You should be able to pop out the VGA cable connector and pop in any of the other cables that came with ShowWX. It is literally the same connector. I put the plastic cover back over the connector and use a small strip of electrical tape wrapped around the cable entrance to keep it in place. I am not sure why the manufacturer just didn't make it so you could use different cables in the first place. The mount was pricey enough to be limited just for VGA. Be aware that by removing the screws and popping in a different plug into the dock could be considered "alteration" and void your ninety day warranty on the accessory. This is what I chose to do to use the mount all the time with every cable. If you don't feel like doing that I am sure you can buy and aftermarket mount that will work. Also because the hole is in the back of the mount, it is best to put one leg of the tripod to the front and two to the rear. This prevents the whole unit from falling forward if you are using a mini tripod. Good luck to all the fellow Inspector Gadgets out there.

I purchased this dock thinking I could modify it, but the screws on the back of it are not flathead holes. they are these tiny tiny double dots. my 1.4mm flathead won't fit into it. Now I'm out of the cost of the dock and I can't jimmy it to put in my ipad cable (which doesn't always work). What did you use to unscrew the back of yours? I will try to upload an image.

ok. I got my husband to look at it... and of course he figured it out. he used #00 philips head and had no problems removing the screws. we were able to change out the cable without a problem. let's hope this secure fitting will make it work.

I bought this for my ShowWX Pico projector as I wanted to attach it to my notebook computer. While I had it, it worked very well. I no longer own it as I didn't use it all that often.

That said when I did use it, it worked well.

Highly recommend!

I bought the Microvision PICOP projector and was basically forced to buy this holder so I could hook it to the computer. This holder is great and really makes the projector much more user friendly, mounted on a tripod. It is a metal holder and seems very durable and well built. It works to hold the projector for whatever device you're hooking it into, not just the computer. Thumbs up. No regrets buying it.

It does what it should do but is bulk as anything and awkward to position this should have been just a cable not an entire mount it would have been a lot better as it would be smaller and allow you to place the projector more stability.

This is a great concept to have a light, portable projector, but the battery only lasted about 30 min. before it died. I had to buy an extra battery to show a short film, but it's a pain to have to change in the middle of viewing.

The dock is a mixture of good and bad, The good is the stability and extra weight when used as a VGA projector and well as providing mechanical support for the small plug with the heavy cable attached. The cable is just a standard VGA cable with a SHOWWX plug on the end so it was easily removed for a much more portable cable once I got the screws out as others have suggested. I'll carve out the plastic on the top so I can easily place in whichever cable I want to use at the time.

I'm not sure what purpose the metal disc at the top does though apart from just holding heat so I'll likely remove it.

This adapter is pretty much as advertised. It holds the projector securely as it locks into place. The cord needs to be longer. That's the only annoying thing about this adapter, but, seeing as it's the only one available, you don't really have another choice.
