Summary: the only thing that stopped me from giving it a 5 was the battery life for this is too short. i like to watch hulu on this using my ipad and i can only watch about 4 episodes before this thing dies. also when i wanna play my xbox on it i wish they had a option to make it as bright or as dark as you want not just the two modes movie and document.
Summary: OMG, got this for my mom for Mother's Day with a screen and a speaker. She loves it. We have had movie night twice in the yard and are looking to take it camping soon as well. The color and power is perfect for one movie showing, though I'd make sure you keep the charger near, amazing product from Brookstone!
Summary: WOW! I'm mind-blown by this product! It works FLAWLESSLY and does what it was described! Amazing! Now I can view my smartphone (with MHL adapter) on a projector to watch movies, or view presentations and show it off to other students, instructors, families, etc... (This one is mid-sized, so that works for me.) Thank you very much!
Summary: This is my first portable/travel projector and I love it. I love it so much that I told everyone about it and even helped my cousin find it on Amazon so he could get one. My kid likes to borrow it and watch cartoons on her ceiling from her tablet. I may buy another one and let my kid have one in her room since it's quite easy to take it away if she doesn't do her HW or get bad grades. The device works as advertise and very well built.
Cool little hi-tech innovative and functional quality product

Summary: My 11 y/o son bought this with his own money because he wanted to be able to play video games, watch tv shows, sports, movies, etc. online anywhere without the need for a monitor. I was skeptical that, first, the resolution of the projector would be poor, and second, that he would use it only for a week or two and would tire of it and would be out $300 of his own money. I was mistaken on both accounts. This little projector is excellent!
Summary: I got this as a gift for my wife's b-day. It was a home run. There's lots of times where she'd like to have a bigger display for her iPad, or set-up an Apple (or Roku) TV where there isn't a TV. This really works pretty decent at this price point. It should be noted that this is the 85 Lumen model. If you want to use this in anything but a semi-dark space, you'll need to step-up to the 200 Lumen model (it's bigger, and a bit more pricey).
Summary: I connect my phone to this and get an 80 inch screen in my little dorm room, everyone gets jealous when they see it lol. Just turn off the lights and you can see the screen great, the less light the better but it is fairly bright. No real cons... i guess the battery could be bigger i havent really tested it not plugged in but 1.5hrs could cut off if your watching a somewhat long movie.
Summary: It is really tiny but works very well overall. It is ideal for small groups and I use it regularly for teaching in seminars. It connects to my laptop easily. Connecting to my iPAD sometimes takes couple of tries but can get it to work. Not sure why that is.
