Summary: The projector is okay but the focus need to be adjusted all the time. The lamp hours still runs when projector is switched off with remote control. It should be power off manually, that is, the power button on the projector must me turned off. which is a bit inconvenient especially when the projector is mounted on high.
Great little projector but has audio issues with SD card

Summary: I have had my projector for two years now and feel its pretty much what I expected but one problem for me has been that when I use it for the purpose I intended which is for teaching I have a audio to video lag. When I use a flash memory card and download a video from You Tube the video starts out fine but within ten seconds if watching people speaking it becomes clear that their lips are not syncronized with their words.
Summary: I had a little trouble buying extra wires and aadaptors so I could play shows from my ipad to the projector. What rendered it most useless was the lack of audio options. Nowhere in the brochure did it mention audio or how you could get something to attach to it. Therefore I think it has been a waste of money sadly. i really wanted it to work but I coulnt hear, only see so it just gathers dust.
Summary: I'm now at 2800 hours with this projector and dust blobs have accumulated on the screen. I called Vivitek and they won't tell me how to open it up. I've owned three projectors and they all needed to be cleaned occasionally. If you ever get dust blobs it will cost $75 for Vivitek to clean it out for you. Something to think about.
Summary: If your one of those people the spend time adjusting the color on your TV, this projector may not be for you. If you need a tiny projector that works on pretty much anything, this can be a life saver.
Pros: Small enough to fit in a handbag, instant on AND off sliding switch, fairly bright 40" picture, light weight and auto selects the input your using. compatible with ipod, iphone, mac, pc, dvd.
Cons: Plastic Lens, easily scratches, do not try and clean. The image goes out of focus every few minutes after it turns on then gets less frequent. The color is unsatisfactory, you can adjust the color a bit in the menu but you just cannot get the color quite right. flesh tones are off and it just makes your photos and home movies look awful, your friends will end up looking at your computer screen instead of the projection. The power adaptor which needs to be plugged in f...
Summary: I may have expected too much from this device, but found that the only way to get an acceptable picture was to have a completely dark room. The sound quality isn't great either. We rarely use this.
Summary: It's a nice projector for the price even though it doesn't allow input from a USB drive or micro SD card (must be run from a computer or tablet). Better price at Staples. The internal speaker doesn't work but the audio/earphone output does. Maybe they left the speaker out along with the input features, adapters and case. The Q2 is a better deal if you want more flexibility and backup input options.
Summary: This is a great little projector and provides a nice picture however I do not think it's worth $500, in my personal experience Ive had trouble with the mini hdmi socket and the chords are way too short, I've also had trouble finding a female RCA composite cable for the projector, it was just too much to ask for. But overall if you are someone who is on the go, and gives presentations daily, this would be the projector for you.
