WowWee Cinemin Swivel pico projector

 

WowWee's Cinemin Swivel is one of the more distinct pico projectors on the market thanks to its swiveling design, which allows you to project images at various angles, including straight up at the ceiling.

Compact pico projector with 480x320-pixel resolution (HVGA); swivel design; integrated speaker; quiet operation; rechargeable battery delivers up to 2 hours of battery life; protective carrying case included, along with adapters for iPod/iPhone and...

Not terribly bright or sharp picture, particularly when you expand the screen size; speaker could be louder; VGA adapter not included.

Though its spec sheet doesn't quite measure up to that of competing pico projectors, the WowWee Cinemin Swivel's unique design and its inclusion of an adapter for iPhones and iPods make it an appealing choice.

"Great product with some weaknesses"

 

Overall, I think that it is a very innovative product that is very portable, convenient and one of a kind. Very easy to use as well. I would definitely make the purchase again.

The image quality is amazing considering that it comes from a portable projector, and can be displayed on nearly any surface.

Volume level from the projector is dismal. It is a necessity to have a secondary speaker or headphones to get the full effect.

Nicely put together but weak performance.

 

Saw this at a local shopping mall and thought it would be a great way to enjoy movies while traveling or camping. I was probably expecting too much, but the brightness is not enough to produce a decent image except in complete darkness. I'm probably...

Small and easy to use

Not enough brightness and expensive relative to competing products

First time using a Pico Projector

 

I liked it for my first Pico Projector. I love for use with my Ipod Touch 3G.

Being my first Pico Projector, my expectations are low. Unit is compact and Light-weight. Came with enough adapters to connect to a lot of media. Swivel feature is nice to project on higher surface, including the ceiling

Very lacking in documentation. So I went to the website and found the PDF of the Users manual. URL -> http://www.wowwee.com/static/support/swivel/manuals/Cinemin_Swivel_UserGuide_EN_20100510.pdf
