Initially, I was underwhelmed by this projector, and, after using the remote to adjust the brightness and sound, I liked it more but still not enough to make me want to keep it. My first issue was that the sound was too low, but I found that my movie on USB had a much richer, louder sound once I switched one of the projector's audio settings to the last Surround Sound option. The more detailed adjustments seem to require use of the remote, and you can access settings by pressing the button that has multiple horizontal lines. I also increased the brightness and played with other picture settings, and while that helped somewhat, no matter what I did, the resolution was still too low for my taste. The further back you sit and the less picky you are, the more tolerable the pixellation becomes for kids and possibly for some adults (but not this one).
