Advantages: A sense of being in a cinema
Disadvantages: The heat
A good product, but like most electronic items, it has its pros and cons.
It really does give the effect of watching a movie in a cinema. There is a zoom tab, which I only discovered about a year after buying the product. It is located near the lens, and the clarity of the picture can also be adjusted. The product has an inbuilt dvd player, and can also be connected through wires to a laptop and other devices. It also comes with a remote control and the sound quality is very very good.
The zoom tab only goes so far, so if you want the picture even bigger, you have to physically move the projector as far back in the room as you can, so the size of the picture is partially dependent on the size of the room it is in. The dvd player stopped working about a year or so after purchase, but this wasn't a major problem as the projector can be connected to an external dvd player, I used our playstation two box as our dvd player substitute, till I can get the inbuilt player fixed. Also the product heats up very fast and extremely hot, so much so that it is easy to burn yourself if you put your hands anywhere near it, while it is running, it is also therefore useful to keep the windows open while using it, as the room could get very hot especially if it is small! Although this is a portable projector, it is heavy, so I would only recommend it for home use.
A good product, but there may be better more recent products out there. I have personally had hours of fun watching movies on this projector, so it is worth it!
The reason I've given it a high rating despite its flaws is because, I feel for my own personal use, even though yes it has had a few niggles, it's been a fairly decent product. It's not a product that I feel I have to go and exchange for a better one, and having gone from watching a small screen tv to watching things on this projector has been a great experience for me, which is why I've given it four stars.
Summary: A good product
