Summary: To call the BenQ Joybee GP2 a pico projector would be undermining it. Rather, we consider it a projector that sits that fine line between a full-fledge projector and a pocket one: it’s small in size, but never smaller in heart. It’s this effort that the GP2 takes that makes it so endearing to us.
Pros: Good projection quality, Multifarious features and ports
Cons: Speakers could be better, No in-built battery
Excerpt: Tiny projectors are not all about offering the projector experience on a budget. In fact, they have grown well beyond that, into something that is coming close to being the all-rounder device in the home theater setup. And they do work well in most homes where space is at a premium.
Summary: BenQ's Joybee GP2 has a clear list of positives and a clear list of negatives. If you're the kind of person that can overlook some image quality problems in exchange for portability and connectivity -- a travelling executive or salesperson, maybe -- the GP2 would be a useful tool.
Summary: A while ago, a new breed of business gadget appeared, the pocket projector . I was always mildly in favour of these, partly because they were innovative, partly because if you stretched your imagination it was just about possible to think of a use for one.
Conclusion: Overall, BenQ’s JoyBee GP2 is the classic jack-of-all-trades but master of none. If you can live with trading picture quality for portability, it may be the perfect addition to your travel bag.
Pros: Small and light; iPod/Phone dock; WXGA (1280 x 800) native resolution
Cons: Not bright enough for large meeting rooms; mediocre picture when watching movies; battery pack halves brightness
Excerpt: The Joybee 2 is a miniature LED projector with a built-in iPod dock, which is designed to be taken with you to show off your videos. It has a 1,280x800 resolution and 200 lumens brightness, and will take an input from a range of sources apart from iPods: there's VGA, composite and USB video for...
Excerpt: I can’t remember the last time I reviewed something from BenQ, but judging by this little portable projector, I should be reviewing their gear much more often. The Joybee GP2 may have a funny name, but there is nothing funny about what it can do.
Pros: light, easy to use, well-designed with a decent picture output
Cons: no zoom function on the control wheel and may be a bit tricky when syncing with an iPod for first-time users
