Summary: Good size and power full, you can use it with several lights on. Of course with sunlight at 12:00 it is difficult to use it, unless you close the curtains. The noise is more or less like a desktop computer with the fan working continuously. The speaker is only for environment sound, you can not hear well a dialog of a movie. But you can add a pair of PC speakers and you have a cheap home cinema.
Summary: for the price the lumen quality and color grade is worth it. with any projector with 300 lumens it is going to be a little hard to see in any sunlight. provide a little shade and it is usable. the speaker is so-so, and hard to hear over the loud fan. def want to connect external speakers.i have used thisas a 2nd tv to watch other sports above my regular tv.
Summary: Love this projector. Great quality. Bought this projector mainly b/c the lamp is a LED vs. a regular lamp that has a shorter life span. You will be able to find less expensive units with traditional lamps with greater ANSI Lumen and possibly better everything else as well. I think the major value add is that this unit is using a LED bulb and has no maintenance involved (as well as being small and light in weight). I read lots of reviews before I purchased the ML300.
Summary: Update: === Just on the third day, the projector started to overheat. It shut down after 1 hour into watching a movie. I gave it about 10 minutes to cool down and started to watch the movie again, but this time it shut down after 15 minutes. The next time again after 15 minutes. I didn't try a fourth time though. Ever since asked Amazon to process the return.
