Summary: If it sounds too good to be true, than it is too good to be true. The main issue I have with this purchase is that the description was misleading. There are three issues I have : 1. There is no way you could watch anything at 30 inches, much less 50 inches. You cannot achieve a clear (or even suitable picture) above more than 8 inches. The picture is extremely grainy and blurry. And yes, I adjusted the focus knob, the room was pitch black, and I used a projector screen.
Summary: This micro projector is great for the occasional user...just what I was looking for in this price range. The "speakers" are very weak, which is expected from a device this small. I was able to connect the output from my iPhone to external speakers with a separate adaptor cable...which works great. The unit does run a bit hot, but again, expected for the size and output of this device.
Summary: I use this for art projects: load my jumpdrive with photos of other scanned pieces I've made or photos I've taken and then project onto canvas to make a new piece. Works perfectly for that purpose. Intuitive interface. Focus and keystone effect buttons work well to ensure a good picture, and the projector allows the user to change the orientation of the projected picture. Would also be great to show a slide show to a small group of people.
Summary: I bought the P1 Jr. Pico Projector specifically to plug into my iPad 2 and iPhone 4. Note that the unit does not come with any iPad/iPhone connector cables. It does come with Composite AV cables so I bought the $50 Apple Composite AV cables to use. The Apple cables don't work. After contacting support, I'm told I have to buy the $25 iPhone/iPad connector cables from them. I bought the cable from them only to then find out the projector doesn't project everything.
Summary: Pros: amazingly small, easy to set up, easy to start up and easy to carry around and the price is really good (about $100 bucks) Cons: The sound volume from the speaker is too small. It should have some kind of headphone input to connect to either headphone or some sort of speaker. I saw one video from youtube teaching you how to make a headjack yourself. I might try it someday. If they have it already, I will jump from 3 stars to 5 stars.
Summary: I bought this projector 2 days ago, and I have to say, it is better than expected. I tried it out with a photo slideshow I created on my laptop. The picture quality was absolutely satisfactory; even in a room that was not completely dark. I saved the slide show in MP4 on a SDHC card and had some starting difficulties, because the the projector "told" me that this format was not supported.
Summary: I purchased this little projector new from ANTonline via Amazon. I knew it was only 10 lux and wasn't surprised or disappointed that it needed near total darkness for acceptable performance. My guess is it was designed for the widest user needs possible to be a commercial success. It may have too many optional bells and whistles. It is, however, a marvel of compact design and definitely not a toy.
Summary: I got this projector for my husband because he loves watching movies on his iPhone. He can just plug it in and watch anything off his phone and it's great to just look at pictures too. It's so small, a little bigger than an iPhone. It's a great product and I'd sure recommend it.
Summary: I bought this product from another web site. First I got a broken item with plug ports missing in the bottom. The web site quickly offered me a return. I received the new product and it seemed to function as advertised. In other reviews I read, they were impressed with how bright the picture is. I have to agree. In a dark room or even a room that has partial ambient light that cannot be turned off, it still has a good picture.
Summary: you receive what you paid...no more would be nice to have an audio output to connect speakers when you watch movies from the SD memory. The subtitles most of time are not clear enough. But for your hundred bucks... its ok.
