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: 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: 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: 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.
Summary: I like the idea of the Qumi but the technology is not where it needs to be yet. The Qumi is portable and brightness is a tad better than available from 50 lumen LED projectors. A couple major flaws - not bright enough and the large power supply. Brightness is okay but needs to be at least 400 lumens to be truly useable. The power supply is a deal killer for me - the power brick should have been incorporated into the cabinet of the Qumi.
Summary: I have a very small PICO which is grossly under lumened if such a word exists. Does Amazon or anyone else, anywhere, tell a buyer like me EXACTLY what I need to utilize this projector with my MacBook Air or someone else's PC if I take it with me on trips? What cables? Which for HDMI TV? Exactly, what goes into which plugs? What for sound if the speaker in this isn't big enough for a room. And, how DARK does the room have to be?
Summary: I bought the Vivitek Qumi a few weeks back, mainly to watch movies at home. The device, which has been quite intensely expected because of its promising features, is indeed a nice projector: light, small, nice design, overall good performances (brightness etc.). However, I have to mention that the top cover plate, in plastic, bent a little after a few hours of use, due to insufficient heat ventilation I guess. More importantly, the focus is not 100% perfect: 1.
Summary: Let's just say I have own an Optoma HD65, due to the lamp and power outages around here, I've opted for an LG HX300(G). I was able to live with it fine and dandy but wanted something around 720p instead of 1080p. I don't need 1080p to live since most of the stuff I watch are from Netflix or YouTube. 720p is enough for HD quality and everything else that I do. Then I researched for more LED projectors and ran into LG HW300 and Qumi Q2.
