great product

 

this product is brighter than my old traditional lamp projector that benq claimed was 2500 lumins. at 500 lumins this thing works really nicely in a sunlit room at a distance of a little over 10 feet. the keystone feature is vertical only but it almost...

very small and gets kind of frustrating trying to use the manual focus wheel without moving the whole projector and pressing all the soft touch buttons

Very good while it worked

 

I bought this as a primary display due to its very long lamp life. I used it about 3-4 days a week for 2-4 hours each day. It worked well at first, covering all my needs (displaying, connecting to PC and consoles via a HDMI switch etc) and some of my...

Price: nice price point for a good projector ; Size: very small and lightweight, I mounted on a standard sized tripod easily ; Display: is quite good when the lights are out; but not so bright for when there is light, however I used it in a darkened...

Needs a dark room otherwise will be washed out ; No auto focus or zoom. Needed to set projector at the right distance for the desired size, which was a bit inconvenient ; Nvidia 3DTV or Play doesnt work with it due to the resolution and non support. I...

Overall not bad. LG now has a model very similar to this for only $300 at the moment on Newegg.

Nice projector to play games and watch movies on. Picture quality is about how you would expect HD 720p. On a white wall, where I have it projecting it sizes up to about 120 inches diagonal and still looks great. Remote + all the features work fine on...

It seems to come unfocused frequently which is a little disappointing, feels like you have to refocus it each day you use it. Not the brightest projector if you are used seeing a DLP projector I would say this is noticeably dimmer. Still great in the...

LG PB63U

 

This is a great little projector. While it is very bright for an LED display, it is still not quite up to viewing with the lights on. However, turn off the lights and get the curtains mostly closed and the image on a white wall is amazing. The built in...

Well, the sad thing is that 11 months after purchase, the unit just died. Right in the middle of a movie it just turned off and will not come back on. I suspect we'll have to experience the warranty service

WILL do 120hz in 2D on PC!

 

The pros completely outweigh any minor cons. This is a wonderful little projector with so many features for every application. I strongly encourage anyone in the projector market to give this one a try. You will have a very hard time letting go of it :)

I bought this to upgrade from an Acer k11 200 Lumens LED Projector. My K11 has been a great bedroom and travel projector for well over 3 years now but I wanted newer tech and a brighter image. Almost 4 years ago 200 Lumens LED projectors were $400 to...

If I had to dig up a couple cons one would be its speaker. Pretty darn terrible. I recommend either a little set of PC speakers wired to the audio out or a receiver. 2: The fan speed is linked to the brightness level you have set. There are 3. I have...

Solid and Small

 

I picked up this projector nearly new for $350. At that price, it's a steal given how modern it is with inputs and the LED bulb technology. I don't need a superbright projector, so this little guy work GREAT for me. I've used it a TON over the last 9...

The projector is very small and light, so it was easy to mount to my ceiling ; The fan is quiet, especially on energy-saving mode ; LED technology means the bulb lasts forever, so I don't have to worry about turning it off to save bulb life ; It turns...

The built-in speaker is pretty weak sauce, but I've got all my audio going through the 3.5mm audio out into better speakers ; Finding another power adapter has been difficult. I don't need one yet, but I might since I've mounted the projector on the...

small portable projector that works great

 

Needs some darkness. Shows good around evening or with curtains drawn (not tightly); but shows great at night.

Very small; I didnt realise that it was so small. Can be held in one hand and is smaller than a book ; Great price ; Clean image ; Has 3D

No autofocus. You have to calculate (manual contains information) and adjust size of screen by moving projector forward or backward. With my 6.5 x 4 foot screen, I have the projector about 7 feet away ; 3D setup is a pain. I have an Nvidia GTX 760, and...

Sad to see it go

 

It died on my after 12 hours of use. Newegg covered free shipping. The projector was out of stocked so they issued a full refund. I can't say that I will buy it again but it gave me a good impression of a first projector. I'm thinking that I'll buy...

1080p Amazing picture for a Sub 500 projector. 84 inches at 9.4 feet. Amazing looking movies, games and images

Comes out of focus easy. at 1080 if you have it hooked up to a computer the text becomes very blurry but still legable. had to turn down to 1366x768 for clear text

Pretty darn good for what it is

 

Smaller and better than you think. Nicer display quality can be had, but not for less than 3x the price (and a tenth of the lifespan).

Super long-lived, tiny, almost-silent LED projectors are a fairly new niche, and while they don't get a lot of attention due to being thought of as low-end products, it's hard to say no to <60w 720p for less than $500. On a purely technical level,...

Fixed zoom (if this is an issue for you I'd recommend getting a ceiling mount, they're very cheap and will likely solve any positioning problems). Colours aren't as deep as I'd gotten used to, and I wasn't crazy about the display presets, but it's...
