Great for windows, a headache for mac

Summary: I was very impressed with the size and simplicity of this projector, feeling good about taking it with me everywhere... that until I tried to make it work. I downloaded the software and the driver, but it just kept crashing and had to hard reset my laptop multiple times. I removed the software, reinstall again and no luck, Called tech support and they couldn't help.
Excerpt: This projector is amazingly small… not even the size of the palm of my hand. If you occasionally need to make PowerPoint presentations for work or like to show slides of family photos at family reunions, this projector will work great when connected to your laptop. Don't expect the power of a full sized projector, but if you can darken the room and have an audience of 5/6, it can be a useful and convenient option for you.Connect it to your lap top, run the software, and...
Somewhat difficult to set up but still a very handy unit

Summary: I have used many portable projectors over the last 15 years, including some huge beasts that cost over $10,000 and could be used on a screen big enough to see from the back of a good sized auditorium. Most of the time I travel with what I thought was a "compact" Dell projector. It is about the size of a two-slice toaster (although thinner) and weighs about 5 lbs. It is acceptable for most conference room use.

Summary: If you're used to a point, plug and shoot type of projector, walk away. This one requires work. Software downloads. And, at time, patience. It is cute as a button though. I took it out of the box and it's adorable. You have to plug it in, find it as a hard drive, then get the software. If you're lucky, everything will go smoothly. That's IF. I did fine with a Windows 7 HP machine. Not so with a Windows 8 Dell.
Summary: If you occasionally need to make PowerPoint presentations for work or like to show slides of family photos at family reunions, this projector will work great when connected to your laptop. It connects with one cable. One end features the connection to the projector while the other features to USB connectors to plug-in to your laptop. It does not have built-in speakers.
Summary: I am amazed at how small this little guy is! It is only about the size of the palm of my hand. I thought for sure it needed to be larger, but nope. Setup was a breeze--just install software, plug the projector in (needs 2 usb plugs for power), run the software, and you are good to go. This is perfect for presentations for a business person on the go.
Summary: UPDATE 10-19-2013 I just updated my laptop to Windows 8.1 and the software keep crashing! It did not do this before. I hope they come out with a fix for this very soon...... I have had a few projectors over the years and currently have a decent Epson for home use (backyard movie night etc) but wanted a portable one to use for sales presentations. I was lucky enough to get this off the vine program and am thrilled with it.
Summary: I have already indicated that the projector was unfit for the intended purpose but have yet to receive approval for its return. Itb was promoted as suitable for Ipad use but Apple subsequently advised that it was not for use with Ipads. I also ordered a special Ipad connector that it also of no use to me.
