Summary: I was very optimistic about the SHOWWX but ran into a major issue when I connected it, using the VGA adapter, also from MicroVision, to my Lenovo T61 laptop. What happened is that it didn't QUITE crash the PC but did drive the video adapter into its lowest possible mode, something below 800 X 600, which shouldn't even be possible. (I normally run at 1440 x 900.) I could even reset the display without rebooting into VGA mode, resetting it and rebooting again.
Summary: THE GOOD: Portable, EASY to use. THE BAD: Because it's a LASER projector, the image is speckled. The technology employs 3 lasers that mix the colors to generate many. HOWEVER, you really can't get a true "white" color so it just looks like all the colors in one. My eyes were very sensitive to that. It was hard for me to watch a movie/NETFLIX without looking at the white speckled effect. I was hoping it would be better.
Summary: After first charge the battery didn't last for a full length movie. It says it cannot be In use while charging. Also, you cannot mirror the screen of the iPad to surf the web, only allows you to play movies, and show photos.
Summary: Hello, I recently purchased a Microvision SHOWWX+ HDMI, along with VGA adpator, hopping to use it for professional slide projections and personal movie projection. When I turned it on, I got disappointed by the poor brightness / luminosity. I had to close lights and curtains to be able to watch what I was projecting from my iPad. Also, while projecting a Netflix movie, for some unknown reason, there was a red thick vertical bar at the right end of the projected image.
Summary: So I read all the reviews and took a chance on this projector since I knew I'd be using it in a dim-lit room. Bottom-line is if you are using it for more than just personal viewing where a small projection is acceptable or in a very dark room, don't buy it. If you want more than one person to see it (hense larger projection) it isn't good enough. I'm returning the one I bought to get a "real" projector. Personal viewing okay, but not great. Group presentations ... never.
Summary: After much research on different low cost projectors and looking at all the reviews I went with this one. Package arrived in the mail but after hooking it up and waiting for darkness I realized the projector is not bright enough and every single movie I tried is way too dark to be watchable. I share a house with a bunch of housemates and we love to get together and watch movies. But honestly this projector simply does not do the job.
Summary: I love the size but, picture quality is lacking and I bought mine so my wife could use it at school in a room with the lights off. I guess there is still too much light because it is impossible to see. I should have saved my money.
Summary: I am not recommend for everyone buy this item, I buy other item for connect notebook, but projector already dead(not working) The price very high than other same product, be careful check all information. I could not return because over return days. I keep damaged product.
Summary: After reading all the reviews and compared to other brands, I ordered this projector with high expectation. After tried it, I decided to return it. Thank god I bought it from Amazon where the return policy is straight forward and painless. Below is what I experienced: 1. I understand this is a tiny projector with dim light but I was not expecting it to be useless in a normally lighted office.
