I was worried it would be too dim as some reviews have said, that has NOT been the case. This looks like a 3000 lumen projector on my wall, it's great. The one I'm reviewing is ACTUALLY 3000 LUMENS (500 ANSI), that's bright! Brighter than the sun? No... because it's the f'ing sun, no projector is brighter than the sun... Who watches movies on a projector with sunlight directly on the screen? Anyway....
Simple Pros and Cons so far:
-Comes with Cables and a Tripod (fits almost any tripod you may already own)
-Android comes installed on the device (It's an older version, but it checks out)
-Supports Screen Mirroring for IPhone, Android and PC (Don't think it does Mac, but I didn't try)
-Resolution is great, and can play 720p just fine
-Color/Contrast is MUCH better than other Pico projectors I've seen.
-PRICE!! (I'm talking quality to cost here, there are cheaper pico projectors, but I haven't seen much with better contrast, resolution or brightness)
-Weight/Size It's not so small you'll lose it, but it's small enough you can throw it in a backpack just fine. It's size is perfect IMO. You can set it up anywhere.
- Remote sucks. It's IR based, so you have to actually point it at the projector and you use the arrows to navigate the menus. If it was non-IR like the roku or something it would be fine, but overall, navigating the menus, using android, entering usernames and passwords for netflix or hulu or whatever is PAINFUL! I think I'm just going to connect my Intel NUC or Roku to this in the future. The android is nice in a pinch, but that damned remote just SUCKS! Can't have everything right?
-Tripod that comes with it is kinda cheap. (Meh, it works just fine, it's just plastic and lame)
-Needs to always be plugged in, no battery (Other versions had a battery, HOWEVER, the manufacturer says that they took the battery out to make it more quiet, increase the resolution and brightness. All things I value SO much more than a battery that would barely make it through a movie anyway.
- It's so convenient that you end up watching more movies and TV shows in cool places. (Is that a con?)
-Get a case for it... I'm going to, it's hard to get it all packed into the box again.
-If you don't have a better tripod, you might be frustrated with the little plastic one tipping or not being tall enough without a nightstand or table to put it on. You might consider buying a better tripod. (However I used the cheap plastic one a little and it was "fine")
-Have fun watching films outside and on random walls in your house =D
I highly recommend this for students (college) who don't have a nice TV and live a mobile life. It's also great for Tiny Home people or RV travel and camping. If you're going to to that you might want a portable screen for viewing outside with wind and stuff like that. There are some pretty stable ones you can find (Amazon has some but there are more out there than what amazon currently has as of (July-20-2017)
Anyway, yeah, seriously, this thing is great. 3000 Lumens with 720p for the win!
I spend lots of time travelling because of work and this projector has done wonders for me.
The projector comes with Android OS built in, which means that it's ready for use on its own, without having to connect it to an external source - it is the source. What's great about this is that it gives me a lot of flexibility on what I want to do with it - just like a tablet, cept the image is projected onto a surface.
On my business trips, I bring this around whenever I have to do power point presentation (Google slides from the app store) and I always end up with great compliments from people on how "technological advanced" I am. Aside from the cool factor, the size of it makes it really easy to carry around. With this, I no longer have to carry my laptop bag with me... and believe me my laptop is really heavy. This projector can easily fit in the pocket of my jacket.
This projector is also great with movies. I typically load up a SD with some movies and watch them in the hotel room during the evenings. The image quality I must say is quite stunning for something of this size. Playing HD movies is not a problem, there is no lag or choppiness in the video and the brightness is very nice.
Another HUGE plus is that this device is very extendable, meaning that you can literally hook it up to anything.. keyboard, mouse, speakers, usb drives, etc, etc. which makes my life very simple.
Would definitely recommend this to anyone!
On the downside, I've had numerous issues getting the android OS to update correctly or log into Google services - it timed out multiple times and took me many tries to get that to work. Furthermore even though the machine was assembled last month, I received an error that Netflix couldn't play until Google play services was updated. After several frustrating tries that were unsuccessful, I accidentally discovered that hitting "back" on the error dialog dismissed the dialog and allowed me to play Netflix anyway.
Other minor dings are
- The box: It seems that iCodis tried to make an elegant box design with an iPhone like insert. However, it's simply too small to hold the components it came with. When I received the device, the box was bulging already because the components just don't fit.
- No bluetooth: I know it's not advertised, but it's in all the Android settings, so you would think it has bluetooth. Trying to use it, the OS says "turn bluetooth on", which of course, you can't.
- The Tripod: As others have stated, get another one - don't trust the undersized included tripod with your device, particularly if it's above a hard surface!
- The remote: The remote only works when directly behind the device in a fairly narrow range. Particularly frustrating when you have to repeat entering user names and passwords because of the above Google play issues! There were other minor annoyances with the on-screen keyboard.
- Menus: You have to get used to them. On my device, if you used the menu button on the remote you get a cool semicurcular menu, selecting an item shows options, which aren't spaced correctly and written on top of each other
Overall all the cons are fairly minor as the projector is awesome for the size and price! We've used it every night since we received it!

It also works well projecting onto the ceiling if you like watching films in bed. The advantage of it being really portable.
You will also need to buy a mini HDMI to HDMI lead. One is not included in the box. Try to get one as lightweight as possible to avoid dragging the projector over.
I guess the battery will last the length of an average feature film if you want to combine this with a Bluetooth boombox for outside cinema!
Please note that these projectors do get warm and you have a focus shift when it warms up (around 5 mins); the way round this is to initially setup up the projector after 5 to 10mins after switch on, then when you come to use it again it will not require setting up (Slightly blurry when first switched on). The warm up time is about the same on a bulb projector, so no loss.
I have a 64GB micro SD fitted and a 2TB USB powered Seagate HDD attached too which it recognises & powers. You can also use the 3rd USB mini input too which I have a 64GB flash drive connected. The touch pad is an excellent addition for when you lose the provided mouse down the sofa (the mouse works on PC's too).
On battery I usually get just over 1 and a half hours whilst watching a film on full brightness and with the Bluetooth enabled for my speakers.
When connected via USB to a PC, you will also be able to see the contents of other USB connected devices (i.e. my 2TB HDD) where it acts as a USB hub.
In addition, this unit comes with a set of powered LCD active 3D glasses and a Mains adaptor that has UK, US & Europe selector and 2 x USB charging points. With the 3D, the projector will happily convert 2D to 3D on the fly; this from both internal videos and HDMI input.
Effectively iCODIS have thought of everything & doubled it. I look forward to their next product. Thank you iCODIS.
I hope this review helps you choose.
I wanted a very-small-form projector with Netflix and Kodi built-in instead of a TV for a bedroom. After a lot of research I decided on the iCodis CB-200.
I was very impressed when it arrived. The packaging and built quality is really great. It’s very small and solid. The power adapter is small and has the plug on it, like a phone charger. The other model has a bigger, 2-part cable and charger brick. I charged it, powered it up, logged into my google account on Android, and updated/installed the apps I wanted. I played around with it for maybe an hour.
My impressions here: it worked flawlessly. Connected to my wifi, streamed from the network (Kodi) and Netflix. The negatives: the speakers are awful, but I connected to a bluetooth speaker and it sounded great. Also, I’m a projector newbie, so I didn’t expect the 854x480 image to look so pixellated - but be warned: it does, even on a fairly small 40-50 inch screen. When you have it in clear focus, you can see the pixel bricks. It’s still perfectly watchable, but if you’re picky like me, it’ll start to annoy you. It loses focus after some use, so needs to be regularly tweaked. It is quite bright for it’s size. I’m not a projector aficionado, so I can’t tell you about lumens, but it really impressed me in low-light and dark conditions. Also, it has a magnetised tripod that you simply click into place on the base. You will not use the touchpad on the top. It is too small and not sensitive enough. It will do for emergencies but you will need a wireless mouse.
After an hour of use on day one, I powered off and came back to play again the next day. It booted up (with the iCodis logo and chime sound), Android opened, and … a few seconds later it just died. Then the logo comes on again, chime, android screen for a few seconds and crash again. This kept happening - with no input from me. I tried everything including emailing iCodis support to get help but it was stuck. So I sent it back. This boot loop issue was something I had read about in a previous review but as I say, I thought - it won’t happen to me!
Having sent it back, with the refund in my account, but still in need of a solution, I thought of the next model up: the iCodis CB-300. I know: once bitten, but the reviews were positive and I wanted to get a higher-resolution model, given how I didn’t like the pixellation on the CB-200.
On arrival, the CB-300 was not as impressive looking as the smaller white model. It was bigger, clunkier with ports on the back instead of on the side and the colour is not as nice. Now, if this had been the first projector I had seen, I think I would be more impressed - in fairness, it is very compact. The power brick is bigger (another thing to carry). It also has a tripod screw instead of a magnetised base. It did include 3D glasses and a mouse though, so that was a bonus.
The speaker was just as bad as the other model, but bluetooth speaker worked great here again. The touchpad was bigger but just as useless. The focus knob was a little loose on this model, so that it was not possible to get the focus precisely where I wanted it. And like the other model, it slowly loses focus over time and needs adjusting.
The image was markedly better than the smaller version - again, I was very surprised at the brightness and this time the pixellation was nowhere near as apparent. I defintely recommend going HD!
BUT - and it’s a big BUT - as I had read in another review, when the projector heats up from use (after approximately 20 minutes) the touchpad registers clicks on the pad. Even though you haven’t touched it. So, if you’re watching a movie, the playback and volume controls randomly pop up, or the video pauses. This is extremely annoying. I read a review where someone opened up the case and disconnected the touchpad cable but this voids the warranty and I didn’t want to do that, so I sent it back.
It’s a real shame. When these machines are doing what they are supposed to do they are really really great - but in each case, it seems quality control has let them down.
I thought there would be at least a Digital Zoom , the settings are very basic too , would be nice to get a new update with extra adjustments .
