Great for travel

Wayne A. Moses, Amazon

  • Summary: Sweet little projector - very convenient form factor and use. Only downside is that the light output is not very bright, but that was expected with this technology and grade of projector. Best for travel, otherwise use the office projector.

  • Summary: Personal Experience I purchased two of these for myself an my parents.For the price of 342.60$ each I can't complain!I use mine mainly for watching movies,while my wife uses it at school hooked to her iphone/ipod for video/picture presentations.She says it's more than adequate.

  • Summary: Personal Experience It worked perfect for me untill a major problem showed up Problems After less than 100 hours of usage, the image that l pojected remains permanently burnt in subsequent images that l try to project. I tried to contact benq with several email messages to ask for help or input with this defect, however they do not provide information on this problem or how,and possibly where, it can be fixed.

Nice, extremely portable projector

  • Summary: Nice, extremely portable projector. Be aware thought that it's not that bright which makes it very hard to use if there's a lot of ambient light.

High Mileage Report

nostremitus, Amazon
11 December 2013
  • Summary: I've had my Joybee for a few years now, so I should probably write a high mileage review. I bought my GP1 back in 2010 just before deployment. This little projector performed admirably. The LED lamps are a bit on the dim side, but not too dim to stop us from setting up a 100 inch projector screen outside and watching movies on it at night. This little guy weathered dust storms, intense heat, and bumpy rides and never stopped working.

They Got Me....

mosincere "OSB", Amazon
10 March 2012
  • 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.

Best of the cheap projectors

Darren R. Starr, Amazon
25 January 2012
  • 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.

Nice portable projector

Hogoc, Amazon
15 December 2011
  • 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.

Great little projector

mikeisit86, Amazon
20 October 2011
  • 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.
