"Watching TV/Movies in bed on ceiling? Priceless!"4.5 starson by PeteyBrian
Pros: Gorgeous design. Fits in shirt pocket. Nice feel - like soft rubber texture. Quiet fan. Tripod/leather pouch/different plugs/VGA cord included. So simple to use. In a dark room, picture good to watch TV/Movies. Has small, but serviceable speakers.
Cons: Can ONLY be used in DARK room-no exception. Can barely read text-blurry-no matter how much you focus. Must move device closer and away from screen (and a same level to keep rectangular screen) focus limited. Brightness only 10-12 lumens-needs more!
Summary: Using the pico projector with my netbook using Slingbox to watch TV on a 50 inch screen anywhere there's wifi is priceless, albeit limited to night/DARK room. Movies too. Up to say 50 or 60 inches is passable to most. Would I like 50 lumens? You betcha! But at a reduced price, I'll get this now and get a better one in a couple of years! It is a niche product for me bc can only be used in darkness, but I'm using mine a lot. Disappointed no cord for Iphone/Ipod/other smartphone - must purchase separately. DO NOT USE FOR DAYTIME BUSINESS USE! The technology isn't there yet and you will very likely be disappointed. Another disappointment was that I can't read text well - I was hoping to view my web surfing or Word docs on the screen. Overall I'm very glad I purchased my at a reduced price and use mine often.
