Summary: This product the BenQ Joybee GP1 did everything you they said it would. Problem is the seller I got it from obviously did not. I coach youth sports and got this to go over game footage with my players. It worked really well for about two months, then began washing out. I contacted the local electronics place and they stated the bulb was going out. Wow. I spent nearly $400 to save on buying a new one. I'll most likely never do that again.
Summary: After having purchased a "pico projector" as a birthday gift to myself and returning it the following day, I ordered this projector. I don't own a movie screen and actually made something which borders on useful out of some wood, a large which bed sheet and a staple gun. I used this projector for nearly a year and have used it for everything from watching films to playing video games. There is some good, some bad and some ugly.
Summary: Nice European white color plastic finish, good build quality, compact and portable, easy to setup and use. I won't use this unit in day time, not bright enough, you have to close the blinds and turn off the lights and make the room pretty dark to see the projecting images.
Summary: Bought this for size, review and family gatherings. Know that there is a lot I need to learn but the time I used it I got good reviews from folks watching. Felt it was better that buying one with an expensive bulb. I like it.
Summary: Great little projector. color isn't as flawless as something bigger or more expensive and the speakers aren't the loudest, but it is pretty good for what it is - an affordable, portable projector.
Summary: It seems to be exactly what is promised - lightweight, user friendly and easy to transport. The only flaw I've found thus far is that only the projector is easy to transport. The carrying case (if you can call it that as it has no straps or handles) only has room for the projector. You must purchase another case for the cords, remote, user manual and user CD.
Summary: This is a great little projector but just didn't have the picture detail that we needed for presentations. If you are just doing text or your pictures have strong contrast and little detail, it is wonderful. Unfortunately, it didn't work for us and we had to return it since it was bought for a particular function. But, it will be on my list of projectors when I consider buying one for personal use!
Summary: The Joybee is small and light but it makes a huge screen and does very well for brightness. I am a teacher that travels to six different buildings and I like to project my computer on the wall. With the Joybee I can carry it in my bag (along with the cords that do not fit in the case with the projector) and use it in all of my buildings.
Summary: I bought the BenQ Joybee GP! after reading many reviews. Size and weight are big considerations as I will be traveling with it frequently. This unit and it's giant power cord easily fit with my laptop and all my other stuff into my laptop case and didn't cause a stir going through security. Even so, I wish I had gone with the pico unit. The reason I went with this unit is because it has more lumens than the brightest pico unit I could find.
Summary: The info mentions the weight of the unit which was a big deal for me. What they don't tell you is the power supply weighs about the same amount! So travelers beware. The picture when projected on my hotel room wall was very impressive but was too dark for a bigger audience, with any ambient light. I was hoping to use it in my travels but will keep it at home. LED's are the future, since the bulb for my other projector costs $300 to replace.
