Cant complain about the price, you get what you pay for!

Summary: The projector overall is not horrible. It is easy to use and is very portable. The issues I have seen with it are this: The projector seems to have a cheap cooling system in it, and the lense is not easy to focus in at any reasonable distance. The fan is very loud and seems like it is working very hard.
Summary: I take care of Mom at her home in the evenings and at night, and her TV schedule is "The Golden Girls," "Everybody Loves Raymond," and "Frasier." This projector allows my husband and me to catch up on our Netflix shows that Mom wouldn't enjoy. It's a life saver!
Amazon Sold Us A Discontinued Model That Does Not Work as Described.
7 January 2014
Summary: Bought this as a birthday gift 3 weeks before my daughter's birthday. When we received it, the box said it works with MacPro. Nope! Does not -- unless you buy a cable that is no longer manufactured. 3M said I should return it to Amazon because it's an Out-of-date model, and that they no longer make the cable that works with the MacPro. I tried to return it to Amazon and they said I had it more than 30 days.
Summary: So... there is a reason this was on such a great sale... its cords connect to the iphone 4 and similar ipad.... which isn't a problem... it's fantastic for showing videos and the a/v aspect is incredible. (The cords not only showcase stellar video, but also transmit audio quite loudly). The only issue is that there is a 3m proprietary cord that connects the projector to a MacBook. The 3m vendor was out when I ordered my projector, and cancelled the order.
Research this product before you buy -- it's no longer supported

Summary: This was purchased for business purposes in order to provide a projector for the iPad to be used for presentations. What you don't know until you receive it is that it DOESN'T project unless you have a VGA cord which is no longer available because these are 'old' models. Yuk.
Summary: The Mp255a is inconvenient in some ways because it requires an extra cord purchase in order to use it with your laptop, but for an Apple enthusiast this is an excellent product, with its long battery life and portability. Point it toward the ceiling for a movie at the kids’ slumber party or take it with you on the road to show grandma the latest snapshots of the new baby. We think you can get a lot of enjoyment from this unit.
Okay, but you can't get the cable needed to mirror or use on a computer

Summary: Be very careful before purchasing a 3M projector. It works fine for watching a movie on my iPad. However you need an additional VGA cable to connect to a computer or to mirror the iPad. I contacted 3M and they suggested that I return the projector to where I had purchased it because the cable needed has been discontinued. Because of their proprietary connectors, not just any VGA cable will work.
Summary: We use this projector at church for song lyrics and videos during Sunday school and Children's Church and at home to watch movies. The picture is great even up to 60" maybe even larger, just a guess I haven't measured it. I'm very happy with it.
