Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
For the past 12-14 days of so, Ive been in contact with Anker regarding my issues. Let me lay out my problems first before I begin anything...
1. Tripod mount is much shallower than other universal tripod plates. So the consequence of this is that Anker Nebula wiggles a lot! (This issue was resolved with other anker representative, she send me a tripod. But now I don't know what to do with this tripod because this thing is going back to amazon.)
2. Mirroring problem: I had no problem connecting my Note 9 to this projector. It was quick and simple. There is a major lag right after I connect my phone to this projector. i.e. when I turn my streaming service (Netflix/ondemand) it lags for about a minute with extreme sound delay to the point where it's almost non watchable. But this calms down after about a minute so not a deal breaker.
HOWEVER, when I try to connect to my Ipad 12.9 2 Gen (Both iOS 12 and version right before the most recent ios 10/2/2018) it just doesnt connect. I followed the initial set up guide shown on the projector. At first, it connected and I was able to see my network name on the bottom right of the screen in BLUE font. To this point, I was amazed at how easy it was to connect. But it all ended here. When I tried to mirror anything from my ipad it showed a brief black screen and just went back to the mirroring instruction screen. This repeated until I shut down the projector. I attempted the next day, but this time it was even worse. It no longer showed the network on the bottom right and when I tried to connect
my ipad again, it didn't show the WIFI: NEBULA XXXXXXXX name on my ipad wifi setting. No matter what I do, it just didn't show up. I restarted my ipad, and also restarted my nebula. After multiple attempts I just gave up. I paid 250 (Amazon deal), and for this price shouldn't the advertised functions work? Hmm.. Well even with this problem, this wasn't a deal breaker....
3. For first couple of days, I would hear weird, high pitched fan noise. It was exactly the same noise when I had a defective dell XPS 13. It sounded like the fan in the projector was hitting a metallic object. This was extremely annoying because this sound was random. I recorded the sound of this annoying fan noise and I sent it to Anker (Nothing really worked out). When I tried to replicate the problem, I couldn't. The only similar sound that I could replicate was when I turn off the projector from (brightest). Within that frame, .5 seconds, I can briefly hear the sound again. When it happened during playback, it lasted for good amount, at least 30seconds to a minute, and it would happen randomly. Anyways, at this point I was just fed up and done troubleshooting this projector. My love at first sight turned to hate and I couldn't wait to return this thing.
I struggled to troubleshoot this issue with anker representative (nothing other than the tripod issue was resolved) and the response time was fairly slow... maybe one, at most, two emails a day? After about 10-12 emails back and forth, I escalated the issue, thinking that this issues would be remedied quicker or at least receive a proper guideline of troubleshooting. However, when I escalated this issue, the response I got was, (paraphrased) "Let us take the projector so our 'professionals' can take a look and see if its actually a defect. After 3 business days, if there is no issue, we will send it back with a instruction." It was something along this line. I responded back by telling them that I have another projector (Epson 2045) and I know that my experience with this projector is off. FYI, I've never heard that high pitched fan noise from my epson. Not once. Anyways, I asked them to see my video again and after 3-4 days, no response. Not even one.
To make things clear, I didn't spend 12-14 days of being stressed out to receive a free tripod. I can buy my own and I did order a universal plate for my two other tripods that costs much more than Anker tripod. All I wanted was to fix this problem or get a replacement. And I am not willing to send a brand new product to Anker to troubleshoot and send me a video that refutes my experience. It's like buying a new product and getting it fixed the day after. Anyways, I know $250 is a great deal but I am not willing to waste anymore of my time waiting and responding to Anker's customer support. Granted, I am sensitive but my experience is valid. And for the first time, my experience with Anker customer support was not at all satisfactory. I never got a response back to my other 3-4 emails. You could of at least responded to my email saying that I should return or whatever. I will look somewhere else and will probably never purchase Anker projectors.
Don't get me wrong, I do still love your accessories and will purchase more in the future.
Overall, with this specific experience, I am very very disappointed and regret trying to keep this projector as my main bedroom entertainment system. I've printed my Amazon return label and I will be returning this as soon as I am available. It's already packed and ready to be returned.
***Please excuse any typos***
I don't know if mine is a defect but when I screw my tripod mount plate.. mefoto tripod (*MeFOTO Classic Aluminum Globetrotter Travel Tripod/Monopod Kit - Red (A2350Q2R)) It wiggles too much, and when I looked close, the Nebula tripod mount is too short in depth. So it won't go in any further and this makes the projector unstable. I don't know if mine is a defect but both my tripods don't work.
Also, my initial experience with this Projector is... hmmm so so. For the price the quality is great but from time to time I am experiencing stutters and lag. For example when I am streaming from my phone (Android), sound literally stopped working for about 30 seconds before it began to work again. Also, when it works it works but there are annoying stutters and lag. When I connected through HDMI it worked much better but I did experience "NO HDMI Connection" sign and also "No USB" error. I am debating if I should return this and search somewhere else. But I love anker and I do want to give them another try, maybe I'll look in to the 4k version with 500 ANSI.... it's just too pricey...
No big deal, maybe one could simply stream said apps from their phone with Airplay (iOS) or Miracast (Android). Sure! As long as it is Youtube. But any copyrighted content won't stream. You need to hook up a computer and HDMI cable for that.
If your goal is to have a powerful compact projector with all the apps you'd want to project wirelessly WITHOUT a bunch of cords and dongles and laptops, alas, this is NOT that projector. The Anker Capsule II projector runs bonafide Android TV 9.0, but it is a much dimmer device.
All this aside. The build quality is nice. The projection is solid and bright enough for evening projection outside. The speakers can deliver enough volume for two folks in a relatively noisy outdoor city setting. There is HDMI, USB, and an audio jack out.
But at the end of the day, the outdated software ruins this hardware. At this price, the only option is to return it.
This review is for the Lite model. Everything about it matches up with what the other reviews say. Brightness and picture are great, sound is pretty good. Really easy to use and set up and to get content on it via HDMI.
The only issue is that there are no settings for the picture, you cannot adjust the colors or contrast or warmth..etc. The reds on my projector need to be adjusted but there is no setting to fix it. I do not want to have to return such a great product when the fix should be simple. Hoping there is a firmware fix or hidden setting that can be unlocked.
I want to like it. I’m not sure if this one is poorly manufactured or if this is by design. I leave some paper towels under the left side to make it a bit better.
Small and light
Has built-in lens shutter that turns on / off the unit
Can be battery powered or cord powered
Built in rechargeable lithium ion battery up to 3 hrs of play time
Sleek and aesthetically beautiful case design
Has built in handles for easy carrying
Weak projection lighting ( needs dark room )
Non-standard form might make placement or mounting a challenge
Contrast is also weak
Picture quality is average
Overall, if it were cheap I’d pick it up for a travel projector or portable projection for rooms, but I’m too used to 1080p minimum resolution , these low resolution projectors are unusable if you want to project to around 140” and want to be able to read texts on the screen.
Top reviews from other countries
Brightness: don't be fooled/confused by "ANSI Lumens" vs. "Lumens" on amazon. They aren't comparable. Opinions differ as to the exact conversion, but in our experience this 500 ANSI Lumen projector was similar to a business one rated at 2500 lumens. I'm not sure what the difference is, but you'll find this projector suitably bright for a backyard viewing where ambiance is more important than picture quality. For viewing in late summer evenings ~9:00-12:00, we had no issues (in Toronto, Canada).
Screen size: the 150 inches is the diagonal screen length. From a distance of about 10 feet away, we got a picture that was roughly 10 feet wide by 7 feet high projected. Good resolution (720p) but obviously not "high definition".
Content: the entire projector runs on wifi and in the native android 7.1 OS you are able to download Netflix right out of the box. To get Amazon Prime and Disney+ to work, you'll need to ask Anker to opt you into their beta-test for the next software update. This is done by emailing customer service, who got back to me within 24 hours with simple instructions. I was able to get both Amazon Prime and Disney+ loaded onto the projector without difficulty with their help. With those apps running over wifi (or downloading content) you have plenty to watch!
Interface: The software is a bit clunky - think of a smartTV from 5+ years ago and you'll have a sense. Most of the apps don't work with the remote control that is provided, so you'll need to download the Nebula App on your smartphone to use your phone to control the projector. Not a huge problem and relatively straightforward, but something to do before you get out of wifi range!
Sound: The 10 watt speakers are... fine. They aren't going to give you a cinematic surround sound experience, but for a group of 5-10 people sitting near the projector you should all be able to hear 'ok'. Honestly the speakers are more of a convenience than ultra high quality - if you want great sound you'll want to connect external speakers to the standard audio-jack that is provided.
Battery: Haven't done extensive testing but the 3 hour battery life advertised seems accurate - enough for one, maybe two movies if you're on the go. It is easy enough to just keep the projector plugged in if you're close to home.
Autofocus: Works exactly as described, no fiddling with focus... it just works!
Price: At $800 CAD, this is right at the mid-point (from what I can tell) between the entry level options ($150-300) and the low-end of home-theater projectors ($1500+). Would say "you get what you pay for", and if this is on sale or the price has come down, its a steal!
Unfortunately stoped working after 2 weeks.
Won’t switch on!
It’s for you if you like having tv anywhere you go. The image is pretty clear up too 85” but if you go over that then it gets little blurry or maybe the video I was watching was older video, anyways that’s the only issue I could say and the speaker on it is very impressive, didn’t expect that from this small of a device. Battrey lasts about 3 hours, for me it’s perfect.
Picture quality is fine, a bit out of focus after playing for 5-10 minutes but Thermal Focusing helped cover that issue
Portability is great, but it is not really friendly for ceiling projection.
Great product good purchase in general
