We have so much fun projecting this onto my 100" collapsible screen while outside movie nights or pay-per view fights. I also use it on dj gigs (sometimes in rear projecting mode). It's still going strong considering its been knocked off a tripod several times.
Whenever possible, I'll use a camera shoe to strap the projector to patios or my light truss. My old projector is way brighter than this led projector but the bulb needs constant replacement, specially when bounced around on gigs.
I find this led projector to be a good compromise as long as its playing in a dark environment. I'm definitely also purchasing the new short-throw model.
This is truly an amazing projector as long as it's used within its limitations.
As for performance, this project rocks! It is ultra portable, I've used it for presentations and slide shows in and outside of the office and home. And even to watch movies on a sheet outside on the lawn or on the wall in the living room for a movie theater like experience for the kids. Everyone agrees that it is awesome and can't believe how such a great picture comes out of such a small device.
Performance in lighted areas is acceptable. Presentations in a lighted room are acceptable and you can even watch video with sunlight coming in through the windows. Don't expect an awesome display outdoors during the day however. However, for a 700 lumen projector, it is amazing!
It even has a built in speaker if you don't have the video source outputting to a speaker or sound system. However, don't expect bose quality sound out of this. If the room is quiet, the sound is sufficient, but if you are competing with other sounds, or in an open air environment, I highly suggest you connect a set of speakers to this, or output it to a sound system.
One thing I found myself doing was hooking up a Google Chromecast to the HDMI port and used my phone to cast movies, pictures, and games to the projector. Ultra cool!
If you can afford it, buy it! Also, don't be afraid of Amazon warehouse, good experiences so far!
I could not be more pleased, the image quality is as good as my trusty Epson, the device is incredibly compact and is easy to see a quality product. I could but be happier and am very happy with this purchase. I would highly recommend it for those seeking similar criteria I had, and would purchase again.
I travel a lot for work and am giving presentations weekly. The majority of the time I have been able to connect my laptop up to the customers projector. However, I was dragging a ton of cables with me for VGA, HDMI or other and sometimes ran into a situation where I could not get my laptop to sync with the customers TV or projector.
This little guy stores in my backpack with my laptop without taking up much space. I purchased a cable with HDMI to the Apple Mini (video port on my laptop) which stores nicely in the case this projector came with. I've used it a few times. Resolution is clear and it can be seen well even with ambient light. I have a college that bought one of these a couple years ago that is very low in the Lumens category so you almost had to have the room blacked out to see any kind of quality image.
Many of the products I sell are related to Medical Imaging so Image quality is a must have. This projector has impressed everyone where I've set it up. For the price, you can't go wrong.
FYI, if your laptop has the apple mini video out port, this cable is great (light weight and just right for length):
