    "The device is a nice light weight compact device that provides a good option for at home movies. It has sacrificed the lumen count for portability. The amount of hour usage before new bulbs are needed is about what you expect with projectors. The charge time is longer than the use time which is a down side."

    "I've been wanting a home projector for awhile. I shopped around and finally found this gem on Amazon. It's easy to port around, something that I needed for my own personal situation, and was a breeze to set up. The image it produces is beautiful and even better than what I expected! If you're like me and need something that you can take with you and won't be a hassle, try this one out!"

This projector is surely one of the best I have seen, with features that accommodate a wide range of inputs and applications. It has a lot of bells and whistles I will probably never use, since I am only interested in showing my old home movies and vacation photos.
