BenQ GP1 LED pocket projector reviewed: loved, possibly lurved


The universal acclaim for BenQ's GP1 LED projector is deafening. Naturally, some trade-offs were made in brightness, contrast, and resolution in order to squee...

BenQ Joybee GP1


At 1.4 pounds (3 pounds traveling weight), the compact BenQ Joybee GP1 ($499 as of 8/7/09) is the second-smallest LED projector in the group of seven projectors (four lamp-based and three LED-based) that we tested for our recent ultraportable...

Combination projector/media player ; 20,000 hours of LED light

Low brightness (100 lumens) ; Short input cable

This compact LED projector displays good-looking images with or without a PC attached, but it works best only in low lighting.

BenQ Joybee GP1


The clear winner for most versatile palmtop projector, the BenQ Joybee GP1 can show input from a computer, video source, or USB memory key.

Highly portable. Surprisingly loud audio. LED light source with 20,000-hour lifetime. Shows photos, presentations, and video from USB memory key.

Some minor image quality flaws for data projection.

BenQ Joybee GP1 LED Projector Review


Projectors have gone through several iterations in the time I've been around. From old, clunky CRT systems to DLP and LCD systems, projectors have gotten brighter, smaller and more feature-rich. But

Small footprint ; Bright LED output ; Great for portability

Fixed lens ; Large external power supply ; Included case only holds main projector unit

BenQ Joybee GP1 Review


Our previous run-ins with pico-projectors have left us vaguely disappointed, with units that will certainly fit in your pocket but underwhelm in their performance. BenQ's Joybee GP1 has sized itself out pocket-portability but promises improved quality...

BenQ Joybee GP1 Pocket Projector unboxing and demo videos


For $499, you get the world's first-ever LED-based projector with a USB reader. Specs wise, you'll find a Texas Instruments DLP projection system outputting 858 x 600 resolution, 100 ANSI lumens, a 2,000:1 contrast ratio, a built-in 2-watt speaker and...

Best micro-portable projector


The BenQ Joybee GP1 fills the bill for users who need something bigger than a pico projector but smaller than a full-sized portable projector, reviewers say. Barely bigger than a soda can and weighing just 1.4 pounds, portability is terrific. Colors...

Small and light, good image quality, easy to use, long bulb life

Some color complaints, steep initial learning curve, limited brightness, complaints about projector controls, power supply big and heavy
