Okay, keep in mind, I've only used this once so far. Last night I was cleaning my room. I set this up on my bed last night, just maybe 18" from the wall, and started cleaning my room. As you can see in the video, I had the lights on in the room and could still the image just fine. Apologies, this video was taken for SnapChat and I didn't mean to use it in my review so it shows a lot more cat than screen. I did not use any form of external audio and had no issues hearing the sound. Notes: I was alone (except for the cat) and never more than 15' away. I was watching American Horror Story so there weren't any loud explosions or deep bass to account for. So far, I'm super happy. I also tested the keystone adjustment by throwing the image onto my ceiling from a 45 degree angle. I was able to adjust the keystone all the way back to a perfect rectangle. That made me happy.
The included case is nice, albeit super soft. There's tons of flexibility to toss a few extra goodies in there. I currently have some extra cables and my ChromeCast in the bag. Photos included with the review. Speaking of Chromecast, it worked seamlessly. As soon as I plugged in my device it immediately began casting - no set up or input selection needed.
It seems the model has changed a bit since most of the answers were posted. For audio output, my ML750ST has a headphone jack. I was able to test it using an audio cable to connect that to my speaker set. That being said, the audio from the projector itself was fine for me to watch a few episodes of TV alone in my room while cleaning. It reached across the room fine and was clear enough.
Something neat that I didn’t see noted elsewhere is that the back of the projector has a spot to attach a security cable! I have one I purchased for my Macbook Pro a few years ago that just yesterday I threw into a "donate" pile…. I'll be digging that back out now to keep with this projector!
It does NOT come with a manual. This may annoy some but I find it refreshing because I always scan them the first week then they end up in a junk pile somewhere. You can view the manual and save a copy to your computer at Optoma's website but I've also included in my review a few screenshots of diagrams from the manual I found useful!
I also found that additional detailed specs and such are available on this datasheet at Optoma USA's website. Amazon won't let me link to it!
I wanted to love this projector because I am the happy owner of an Optoma HD26 and I was hoping to reclaim some space and shed some pounds when I travel. I was delighted when I read the marketing material for the ML750 which said, "Brightness, Color and Contrast ... it packs the power and performance of a full-sized projector in the palm of your hand."
It does not pack the performance of a full-sized projector. It it not as bright, colors are washed out, and focus is not great. I tried several different modes, played with contrast and white levels, and never got a picture that I would be comfortable using in a business environment.
If you had a dim room, could get your projector close-ish to the wall (like 6-ft), and if your deck/slides/PowerPoint didn't have graphics that relied on contrast, you would have a picture that was pretty good. It would be small-ish (4 to 5-ft wide), but it might be acceptable. If you had a dark room, image quality would be better. Fan noise, like all fans on all projectors, can be insistent at times.
You can always fall back on the cool factor for this thing. It is very cool. Put it on a Manfrotto tripod and you will have the coolest gear in the room. It is much better than a bunch of people hunkered around a laptop screen, so if that is your point of comparison the ML750 is definitely something you should buy. Unfortunately compared to a full-size projector, it is not a game changer without compromise. I will continue to pack my Optoma HD26 and "wow" people with its image quality and relatively compact size (12.4" x 4.0" x 8.8", 5.5 lbs.) Sigh.
Incredibly compact (4x4 inches or 10x10 cm) and surprisingly bright! I've used this with my living room lights on and could still use the projector, and when you have it in your bedroom with the lights off its a full blown movie projector! The images are sharp and crisp, and the short-throw of the ML750ST is INCREDIBLE! With my projector just 10 feet away by our bed this projects the ENTIRE WALL! We've hooked up an Amazon Fire TV stick to this and now stream all our movies (NetFlix, Vudu, Prime, YouTube, etc). This has ruined my 42" flat-screen TV for me. I have also hooked up our Bose Soundlink speaker (using aux cable) and now have a fantastic experience with a tremendously huge image. I was skeptical at first that this little unit could do 200" images, but not anymore! Great quality, great value, and no regrets! It even comes in a bag the size of a school lunch box! We plan to take this projector to work meetings, volunteer meetings that we belong to, as well as hosting movie nights and generally using this on a daily basis in our room for watching movies from now on. The comfort of having an LED light source with a 20,000 hour lamp life makes this a joy to own and use without any anxiety of trying to limit it's uses or worry about buying an expensive replacement bulb that will dim over time. This is truly how projectors should be, compact, long-life, and really fun to use daily without worry. I highly recommend this projector for first time projector owners and people who want to dabble with what projectors can do for you. The 720p HD image is plenty crisp at these projected wall sizes for movies, trust me, you'll LOVE this projector.
Now my review wouldn't be complete without any drawbacks:
The file reader and system on this projector is slow - like read your USB drive for a minute or two slow. But its mini SD card reader is blazingly fast (which is an okay alternative). To use the internal storage is a real pain though, you need to have a male USB-A to male USB-A cord lying around (or buy one) to hook it up to your computer and copy files over to. It has around 2 GB of file storage internally that you can use and access from the Media menu. Video looping for backgrounds can also be annoying as the unit will display the video titles and controls for 5 seconds every time it loops the file. Ideally this unit shines while using an HDMI smart device (ie. Roku, Fire TV, Chromecast, Shield TV, etc). At least with a Shield TV or Steam Link you can stream your games and play them like never before!
But as other reviewers have pointed out, the speaker on this unit (while it does work) is tin sounding and weak, having an aux input speaker handy will really make you LOVE this unit, so be mindful if you don't already own another usable sound source. If you're worried about Bluetooth the Amazon Fire TV has a Bluetooth connection pairing ability that you can use if this is a deal-breaker for you.
