Bought this as a gift to be given for occasional use in a camper. After pre-testing, I'm happy with the performance. Elsewhere on the interweb the resolution is incorrectly given as 940 x 240; the 940 value must have been combined from 3 LCDs. After couting pixels I'm sure resolution is very close to 320x240 which represents a loss in quality from VHS tape video. The fan is noisier than newer full sized projectors.

PROS:
*Bulbs are CHEAP, the MR-16 12v 35w halogen can be had for less than ten bucks :)
*Adujstments of brightness, contrast, hue, and color are adequate.
*Light, durable, compact, and attactively shaped.
*Price of one hundred fifty seemed reasonable.
*Will work nicely from 12v power source directly without using included AC adapter, draws 5 amps at 12v.
*Bright enough for projecting a small image during the day, and a huge image at night.
*Includes a stand to point it straight up for ceiling viewing, and an RCA patch cable.
*Speaker volume goes pretty loud.

CONS:
*Low resolution (320x240) will only be acceptable for low-tech uses.
*Newer, better, cheaper projectors should be available soon.
*Audio inputs are stero, but output from speaker is mono.
*No keystone adjustment means the angle of projection needs to be setup carefully.
*Fan is cheap and noisy, but looks like there's lots of space to replace it with two quiet fans. One in original location, the second could go behind the grill on the opposite side.

There are some interesting LED replacement versions of this projector's bulb on e bay which produce very litle heat. I'm going to try one & then disable the fan for silence and a big reduction in power consumption.

We got this projector for Christmas and the kids have been having a blast with it. They set it up in the basement and hung a sheet up for a screen. There is a "texture" that is apparently from the bulb. I read somewhere there may be a way around this (different bulb?). The picture is not perfect but after messing around for a while we found that the biggest improvement came from positioning yourself farther away from the screen (that's why it is in the basement, our living room is small). I think our biggest complaint is the color control. Some movies seem to have better color results than others. I would not recommend this for movies that have a lot of dark scenes. We also hooked it up to surround sound. I think having "big sound" with the big picture gives enough ambience to make it worthwhile. If you are looking for movie theater quality picture, skip this toy. If you realize that it is about 1/10 the price of a "real" projector and just want to have fun, go for it. The kids can't wait to have movie parties outside this summer. Overall we think it was worth the money.

I purchased this projector based upon price, consumer reviews and the product description. In the description, the manufacturer claims this projector will work with computers. This claim is also on the side of the box. It is simply not true. First of all, the projector only comes with RCA video hook-ups, necessitating both and S-type video adapter and a VGA adapter simply to get a video card to recognize it. It will not convert VGA to any sort of video without another converter. This is the point at which I stopped trying to make the item perform with my laptop; it's simply not worth the expense. Other reviews have noted the poor quality of the projected image. I will agree with their opinions. In an utterly dark room, the image may be tolerable but it will never be good. I would rate this unit a "0" stars if possible; however, I will give it a "1" because I must. The only features which warrant this single star are the sturdiness of the unit, easy of installation to a television and surprisingly good sound. Unless you want to buy it for those reasons, pass the torpedo by and look for something else

I don't intend to highlight the pros and cons in this review. Other reviewers have discussed fairly extensively about it. Here, I intend to share the way I am using it and my experiences.

I bought the projector for [...] bucks. I didn't expect extraordinary performance. I wanted something to watch in my basement while I was running or exercising. I usually spend 1-2 hours a week exercising. My goal was to watch Cable with least investment knowing well that I didn't need an extraordinary quality.

My setup:

I bought a Y splitter at Radioshack and split the local cable wire. One connection was plugged to my living room TV while the other was hooked it to my old VCR. The audio/video output from my VCR was hooked to the projector. I setup the projector nearly 6 ft from the white wall and viewing distance was ~ 15 ft.

Outcome/Observations:

Basically I am happy. I spent less than 100 bucks to have a working system. I didn't need additional speakers as the speakers in the projector were loud enough (in spite of thumping noise from the treadmill).The image quality is acceptable (provided the room is absolutely dark). 15 ft is the optimal distance. The closer you go, the grainier the picture becomes.

I hope you found this review helpful.
