The little projector that made my dreams come true! EXCEPT:

Summary: ******EDIT 12/10/2013: As you can read from the review below, I do love my projector. However, tonight I attempted to contact ROKU for some support. I waited online for a chat for 30 minutes, only to have a VERY Rude and unprofessional rep called "Psyche" fail miserably at any form of customer service. I simply wanted to know where to find a channel (M-GO), and he insisted that he needed my serial number, purchase info, etc.
Summary: I purchased this on sale for around $180 because I had been getting sick having company over and only having my laptop to watch shows and movies on. The quality is pretty great, for my standards at least. It's not the sharpest, but I think it's way cooler than watching anything on a TV.
Summary: There are so many reviews about how cool this thing is. So with that I'll just add my own 2 cents and say this is a fun little big screen T.V. on any wall at any time. All the apps and versatile use this gives makes it something different from the rest, with Roku and HDMI hook up the uses out way any negatives.
Summary: The truth is I don't "hate" the AAX4 device, its just simply substandard to my expectations and in comparison to Brookstone and Roku. After purchasing AAX4 product due to the high star rating I'm seriously disappoint at that projector and perplexed as to WTH everyone else is talking about in liking it over ROKU. Perhaps it because I hold things to a higher standard but I've test this one, the brookstone and the Roku and to me the Roku is a serious NO BRAINER.
Summary: i think that Roku has a long way to go with the quality of their programming but you dont have to use the roku stick, you can plug in your dvd player or laptop. but the projection is great. dont listen to people who say the visual quality is not good. no, it is not plasma or whatever and if you are used to that and demand it then this may not be for you. but there is nothing fuzzy or unclear about it. it renders just fine.
Summary: I'll have to return it. It sporadically functions - keeps cutting out after maybe ten minutes of operation. Otherwise, I'm sure it's fine. I probably just got a lemon. Hoping there won't be an issue with returning it...
Summary: I bought this projector because I have Netflix, hulu plus, Amazon prime and redbox instant, Cable is just too much and with these subscriptions plus antenna you will have more than enough to entertain you. The projector did exactly what it said it would do, in the day time you couldn't see the picture unless you closed the blinds and had curtains to block all light coming in, but at night it was a different story the picture was ok, its not 1080p didn't even look 720p.
Summary: This is a very good projector BUT the remote is small, thin, and CHEAP!!! Its hard to push any of the buttons and without the remote your projector is pretty much useless. Also, the audio output (not the built-in speakers) is horrible. When you try plugging in speakers to it the volume is SUPER low. I really like this projector BUT I honestly wouldn't buy it again or recommend it. The remote is just a pain in the A$$.
Summary: You will read reviews on here saying that you really need subscriptions to services to enjoy this. This is only true if you are not tech savy...and if you are, it is totally unlimited what you can do with this thing. Lots of private channels you can add on the roku, just do a simple google search and find them...there are channels that will set it up so you can run all the movies you have on your hard drive to the player...I could go on and on.
