BENQ MINI BABY PROJECTOR WITH SO MUCH POWER HIDDEN
9 February 2011
Summary: I am really in love with this little BENQ joybee baby projector. So much power hidden in this little, slick device that would make other bigger and expensive projectors blush. Never before in my life have I seen so vivid, sharp, colourful images. The contrast ratio is very impressive and when I plugged it into my laptop the resolution was far better that my laptop's screen.
Summary: Personal Experience I bought this little projector not long ago and think itâ€™s the most magnificent thing. Initially I was looking for an HT projector for my room, but then after reading through some forums I realized that an HT projector would not be the best option for my bedroom. Especially since I didnâ€™t want to overdo my budget range and I wanted something which was quite portable for option of other future uses.
This Projector Is So Cool That I'm a Little Giddy, Talking About It!

Summary: I like technology and gadgets to the point where I can use them but not have to think too much about them. No matter what cool features something has, if I have to read a detailed manual just to be able to turn the thing on, it'll sit in a box shoved all the way to the back of the closet, or I'll give it away to someone who likes to fiddle with stuff like that.
Summary: Just plug in and go, and you're set. My husband is a school teacher, and sometimes the equipment in his classes futzes out. The projector comes to the rescue in seconds, and doesn't take any effort at all to set up. He plugs in his USB, and keeps on going as if nothing happened. Couple of notes: 1) Everything on the USB needs to be either an image (JPG, TIFF, etc), or a movie file (mpeg-1). All other files are useless when using the functionality.
Summary: Personal Experience I like GP1 a lot. 100 lums actully work better than I thought. A perfect "wow" and presentation tool for business traveling. Problems USB port saves me the trouble to bring laptop but I do hope BenQ can support more formats.
Summary: I'm very satisfied with this projector. I set it up in my bedroom with a portable projector screen (60" wide) and fed it 720P and 1080i inputs thru the component outputs of my HD satellite receiver and DVD player,(Toshiba XD-E500, available on Amazon, DVD upscaled to both 720P/1080i)to the VGA connector on the projector and it performed admirably.
Summary: We've already tried out this tiny projector by running it off a laptop and off a memory stick, and were pleasantly surprised with how bright the display is and how simple it is to use. We tried it first in a room with thin shades on a very sunny day, so the room wasn't very dark -- it did well. When we were able to try it in a darker room, it did *very* well. I agree with some minor drawbacks mentioned by others.
Summary: I am really impressed with the BenQ GP1. It's not High-Def (it IS SXGA at 858x600, and will support video stream up to 1080/60i) at this price, but, IMHO, unless you need HD this thing is superlative. Interaction takes a bit of getting used to, but, for the most part it's logical. You can use the remote (easy), or the touch-sensitive controls on the top of the box (a bit more challenging).
