WowWee Cinemin Swivel


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.

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.

WowWee Cinemin Swivel iPod and iPhone pico projector review


The first time we saw a pico projector some of us thought: "Err... What's the point?" Slide show presentations from your phone? Doubt it -- not powerful

Great picture quality ; Plug and play with iPhone devices ; Swivel mechanism for vertical projection

Expensive ; Can get very warm due to lack of fan ; Resolution not high enough for presentation

WowWee Cinemin Swivel Review


For users with a primary need for video, particularly as a companion for an iPod or iPhone, the Cinemin Swivel pocket projector can be an excellent fit.

Wowwee Cinemin Swivel review


Wowwee doesn't just do a line in clever, if somewhat bizarrely named, robots. Nope, the people behind the Joebot are also at it with pico projectors. First spied earlier this year, the Wowwee Cinemin Swivel is at last up for grabs, letting you slap...

Small body, bundled iPod adapter

Swivel feature feels gimmicky, doesn't compare well to other pico projectors

A decent enough pico projector, but it can't live up to its rivals

"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.

"horrible product"


I bought one of these and decided to return it very quickly. Lets say almost immediately. So then I shopped around and saw the mini projectors by AAXA. It has been working great for me and so much brighter. you can go to and see...

There is really nothing good to say about this product.

its not bright.

"Never delivered adaptor, no customer service, no refund"


Due to my unbelievably poor experience with this product, I feel compelled to warn others about purchasing it.

I cannot say because they never delivered a working product.
