Portable Mini Projector is the 2nd portable projector that I own, so far, I really like it. First of all, this thing pretty well built, the unit itself is encased in an aluminum/plastic enclosure that feels very solid and compact. It comes with a mini tripod that acts as it stands (I wish it also comes with a wall-mount or ceiling mount, but I guess you can purchase that separately). This thing has an SD Card slot and USB port (need to format your flash drive/card as NTFS, it won’t read exFat partition) that you can use as media storage (which makes this projector extremely portable and handy if you’re traveling and need to bring your own entertainments). The built-in 4200maH battery on this projector last pretty long, about an hour of screen time for me. I have a 26000maH battery bank, which has a similar shape/size of the project so I can able to tether both of them together and that helps me power this projector for at least 6 hours long.
Before buying this projector, I was skeptical about its brightness and ability to use it during daytime (only 100 lumens), but oh boy, as long as you have your curtain on your windows, the picture’s brightness and quality are still superb, bring enough to watch. I was able to get a screen size of 100″ or so from a distance of 8ft (would be nice if this was a short-throw projector).
Besides all the above pros, the best thing I like about this is that it has a built-in Android OS (I believe Android 7.1), so you have access to Play Store and can pretty much install any apps on it. For me, that is the Kodi app, with Kodi, I can pretty much play anything on my flash drives. Kodi is running pretty smoothly on this projector and picture quality is awesome. However, the built-in speaker is a little trebble-ish (I’d recommend pairing a Bluetooth speaker/soundbar to this projector and you got yourself a great home-theater setup for an affordable price.)
However, there are a few improvements I think this could have:
1) A gigabit LAN port
2) maybe include a carrying case/pouch?
3) screen focus functions on the remote instead of on the projector itself.
I’d give it 6 stars it comes with those 3 improvements above, but however, it’s still worth 5 stars to me. This thing would be awesome for a camping trip. Imagine, watching a scary movie in the wood on a 100″ screen in the middle of the night!!!! Trippy!!!Promised Reviewed by Brandon
