Summary: I wish it were brighter. I trie dto show a power point during class last week and, even with the blinds closed, we coudl hardlly see it. this is a big problem because I am going to use it to lead a tour of scholars to Greece. I planned to give a number of Power Point presentations. As is, I will have to schedule the presentations for after dark (or try to find a room with no windows).
Summary: Ideally every professor should be able to teach just fine even if the projector doesn't work, but let's face it college student get it better with something to look at and understand. This device is perfect for keeping class running right and on schedule. Sure, it's not as powerful as a larger projector, but it's the difference between a slightly faded sheet of printed material and one fresh off the printer.
Summary: Bought this a awhile back just now got a chance to start using it for the first time an all of a sudden it's has salt and pepper dots all over the screen, the built it speakers on this suck as well as the battery life. Should of gotton a regular projector, don't make the same mistake I did.
Portable projector that can charge, project, and fit in your pocket

Summary: Brookstone Pocket Projector is one of the coolest and most portable projector that I've tried. This compact projector is able to output 85 lumen and that may sound small compared to some 3000 ones you may find in commercial use, but it’s fully capable of projecting movies, presentations, games, and more! It’s advertised to project up to 80 diagonal image but I found it to go above 100 in a dark setting — perfect for watching movies.
Summary: The product never worked. It came bad from its origin and they dont want to make a refund. I spent 450$ for nothing, its made in china so I had to return it to China and never got the refund for a product that never worked. Dont even think on buying this waste of money and time.
A solid alternative that keeps up with its more expensive relatives

Summary: I've had this for a year and some months now and I freaking love it. It is so small and light and easy to move around. I always forget that it has a built in battery and every time I remember it makes me enjoy it even more. I can take it wherever I want and get a solid hour and a half of nonstop video on it. I bought mine used and the only downside is that the focus wheel is noticeably loose.
Summary: Had trouble getting here at first but the customer service was great and it got here fast once I discussed the problem with them....ill make another post when I try it out since I have to charge it for a while on its first use
Summary: Bought for outdoor movie night in my backyard. Researched all the low cost options and this was the final choice. Used it last night and it was perfect for what we needed. Easy to use, great picture, and bright enough. Very happy with the purchase.
