  • Summary: Get past the price and forget about its little flaws and the BenQ Joybee GP1 is cute, highly portable projector. Still, this is leading the pico projector brigade. And how!

  • Excerpt: The Good Small and lightweight. Good price. USB reader is convenient. Bulb-free DLP. The Bad Simply not bright enough for most situations. Awkwardly placed controls on remote and projector. Relatively low resolution. box contents, design, and feature set The Joybee ships with a power supply, a remote, a soft carry case, some manuals, and a very short video input cable. The projector itself is small, but not quite as small as the promotional pictures would make it seem.
  • Pros: Small and lightweight., Good price., USB reader is convenient., Bulb-free DLP.
  • Cons: Simply not bright enough for most situations., Awkwardly placed controls on remote and projector., Relatively low resolution.

LED projector can fit in your briefcase or backpack and outputs 858x600 resolution

Consumer Electronics Net
30 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Small form factor projectors have captured a lot of attention in the last year or so, probably due in part to their portability as well as the images that they output. BenQ has recently released a projector called the Joybee GP1 mini projector, that, while not pocket sized, does have a small footprint at just 5"x5"x2". While these types of projectors may look like toys, they aren't, and actually can output very good images, given the right environment.

Palmtop theater: Ars reviews the BenQ Joybee GP1

  • Conclusion: The picture is completely adjustable once you turn on the full menu option. You can bring up a test pattern to calibrate the picture, make the projector turn the image upside down, or even convert it into a mirror image depending on how you mount the hardware. You can choose between multiple presets, or dig deep and set the picture exactly how you want it. There is no lack of options, making the Joybee impressively versatile.
  • Pros: Tiny size, but a solid build, Easy to see image, even in moderately light rooms, Extensive options, automatic keystone-correction makes set-up simple in a variety of locations, You can use content directly off USB media, making portable projection even easier, Composite and VGA inputs give you options for video sources, 2W speaker may not sound like much on paper, but is adequate for medium audiences, Lampless LED technology means long life and low power
  • Cons: The buttons on the projector itself are a pain, and the remote is laid out in an unintuitive way, Video files work well, although wider audio codec support would have been nice, 858X600 native resolution won't wow audiences used to high definition, Image not as bright as other, more expensive projectors, No built-in component input, Large power brick, breakout cable for inputs can be ungainly, Your friends projecting their home movies of the Mexican donkey show they w...

  • Excerpt: The projector itself is pretty sexy looking: a glossy white body with a glossy black top. The lens is not covered, but quite recessed into the body, so, unless you’re trying to, it’ll be hard to scratch it. The focus ring is also recessed into the body but it slides smoothly The buttons on the top look “Apple iPod touch-wheel-esque” The power brick is HUGE (larger than that of my laptop, printer, A/C unit, etc - it’s seriously almost half the size of the projector...

  • Excerpt: Wahey! The reaction in the office when we opened the GP1 box was what every gadget-lover wants. ‘Cor, lookathat.’ The main photo here is not the product of overzealous Photoshop; the hand is not that of Andre the Giant — the GP1 really is just 136 x 57 x 120mm, shown here at actual size. It’s not the first time we’ve had a projector in the bedroom, but it’s certainly the first we can hide behind the clock-radio.

BenQ's LED projector is small but mighty -- displaying great images

Good Gear Guide.au
24 January 2010
  • Summary: BenQ's Joybee GP1 is a nifty little projector, with a native resolution higher than DVD quality and a reasonable light output given its tiny size. The non-standard resolution might annoy some users, and the fan output while not noisy, wasn’t as quiet as we would have liked.
  • Pros: Good image quality, 80-inch maximum screen size
  • Cons: Non-standard resolution of 858x600 pixels, low overall light output
