For it's size and price, the image quality is good enough for a quick presentation.
Do NOT buy the WiFi adapter for use with this projector. The drivers aren't compatible with the latest OS X, and there have been zero updates from Optoma since it was released. It used to work for me, but now I can't use that option at all.
Essentially, you will only be able to use HDMI to get a signal into this projector. It claims to be able to play Office Files, Videos and images off of USB and micro SD cards. Good luck getting that to work! It won't recognize half my memory devices, and when I do find some that it recognizes, it will display half my presentation slide and images, the rest show up blank. So, effectively useless!
I would not recommend unless you just plan on using purely HDMI and can live with the compromises.
Things I love:
* Tiny, literally, it's a true micro projector. Fits in palm of hand.
* Very bright, widescreen display, even at 4m in a light room. Incredible given size of projector.
* Easy setup and remote for keystone etc.
* High quality color and great constrast ratio
Things I don't love:
* It has a couple of small fans which create a high pitched sound all the time, to varying levels (depending on screen mode). During quieter parts in movies or TV it's noticeable.
Overall, this projector creates an incredible display from a tiny package and I'd highly recommend it to anyone in a smaller room or who travels a lot.
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've used it on a table top (with a mini tripod) or mounted on my full-sized camera tripod. I've used it with a number of different laptops and never had a configuration issue. It just works.
If you need something brighter, you're probably going to have to go with a bigger (or at least a more expensive) model.
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.
