Save yourself a headache and DO NOT BUY ANY PRODUCTS FROM THIS COMPANY
3 March 2014
Summary: I SENT MY PROJECTOR IN TO BE FIXED OR REPLACED AND THEY NEVER SENT ME ONE BACK. THEY FIRST TOLD ME THAT THEY SENT THE REPLACEMENT TO THE WRONG ADDRESS, BUT ASSURED ME A NEW ONE WAS IN THE MAIL. I HAVE EMAILS TO CONFIRM THIS TOO. I NEVER RECEIVED IT. IT'S BEEN OVER A YEAR NOW AND HAVE NOTHING TO SHOW FOR THE $5OO I SPENT. I'VE LEFT NUMEROUS EMAILS AND COUNTLESS MESSAGES, BUT NO REPLY. THEY ARE BASICALLY THIEVES.
Cons: THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE. I SENT MY PROJECTOR IN TO BE FIXED OR REPLACED AND THEY NEVER SENT ME ONE BACK
Summary: I was skeptical about this projector when I ordered it, but it turned out to exceed my expectations in every way. Its greatest benefit is its portability, but it has replaced my (low def) TV. I now watch TV and movies across an entire 100 ft wall, though I could watch a dim movie across the neighbors entire lawn!
For the price, buy the SHOWWX+ rather than the SHOWWX

Summary: THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE SHOWWX+ NOT THE SHOWWX When I first heard about this laser-based pico projector in 2010 I was intrigued. After much searching I could not for the life of me find a Canadian distributor. A few months ago I noticed that the price had come down considerably so I bought one from Underwaterfireman (the only Canadian distrubutor I've found yet). The picture is very good and the image has a certain scintilated look to it. Pros: HDMI input.
Summary: After comparing many of these pico projectors, including TI's next generation WVGA DLP pico, the SHOWWX clearly has the best image quality. Battery life is not bad, I've exceeded 1 hr 40 minutes on a single charge. Using lasers does not make this projector dangerous, in fact, being a laser device requires it to be regulated. In this case the SHOWWX has a Class II IEC label on it, which, as I've read, is accepted globally as eye safe...
Pros: Infinite focus is AMAZING! Image quality is better than expected! Form factor is not only small but it hardly weights anything
Cons: 10 lumens is the bare minimum, wished it was 15-20 Runs a little warm, but not to the point of unacceptable
