for making this video possible and sending me out these products to review so this is an 800 by 480 budget projector and I've also got a screen which is a hundred inch diagonal screen and I got their tripod that they sent out to review so together you can buy all those items and you can actually use it for a pretty cool setup in your home apartment your office everything is actually pretty portable it comes with a bag and stuff for like each item so you can actually take it with you and use it elsewhere take it to a friend's house things like that take it on a trip so I would definitely definitely recommend it and we're gonna get into that today alright so I've got a bunch of goodies here from Vanko these can all be found on Amazon I'm going to show you all these things that you can get together to set up a very cool budget home theater system this first thing we're looking at here is the actual projector so just gonna do a very quick unboxing just to show you what comes with this you can see it's pretty cool cuz you get this cool fabric case and it's actually a pretty cool design on it it's got a little handle on the top to carry it around and stuff and then you've got your zippers here so looking inside here got a little Quick Start Guide gonna get a remote an aux cable there to hook up sound you got an HDMI cable here is a vga cable and finally got your power cable here so velcro din is your actual projector so here it is this is what its gonna look like alright let's get this up close here a little bit so you see here it's got the Vanco branding you can take this off so all of your controls are gonna be right here so they're kind of hard to see but uh this is gonna be your source button you've got a tile button there as well to maybe pull up your menu you've got your okay and navigation buttons here your back button and then you've got your power button right here on the top part here it's pretty nicely labeled you can see you've got your focus for this top bar and then you've got your Keystone which is gonna kind of tilt the picture by doing this one right here the smaller lever so those have a bit of like a rubber cover here for the lens so that's pretty cool it's just nice and easy to take on and off you can put that on there for travel so you protect the lens as well so on the right side of the unit you see here you're gonna have for the power cord and cable to go in they also have the fans exposed on the side here to help kind of keep it cooler on the back side this is your IR sensor right there where the remotes going to be able to control this looks like right here is gonna be the back facing speaker taking a look over at the left side you've got your VGA input and again they give you that cable here's the USB port HDMI port here's for a micro SD card right here got your AV port and then your headphone jack again you've got space here where the fans are gonna be so you can actually hook up using your headphone jack right there a Bluetooth speaker you can hook it up by aux your surround system and stuff if you're using one with your TV already so that's pretty cool this is always good to have in these budget models because you can drastically improve the sound take a look at the bottom you can see you got your model number here and everything I missed a LED lamp it's the leasure 3 model number q5 so not much to see here on the bottom other than you do have this little wheel looking at it from the front you can kind of spin that down to a certain degree till you hit the end and that will let you prop it up just a little bit if you need to kind of screw around with the picture and how high it's tilted and then you can use your Keystone correction here on top to kind of tilt it down if you need to because of the angle so let's put this away I'm going to show you the rest of the stuff I've got here so having a projector is just part of the package you've also got here an actual stand to use with the projector so this is actually a tray that the same seller sells so this is kind of a nice padded mat kind of almost like a mousepad and then this is a metal kind of bin here a little tray and this will connect to the actual tripod itself so that this will be kind of the base for your projector so you can easily kind of mount it change the height and stuff like that in this case here this is the actual tripod so it's pretty compact actually and let's take this out so there we go so it's a pretty compact like I said it's really not that big and it'll it'll definitely go small here so you can see it's got kind of a big head here on it that's gonna screw in but this is gonna connect now into the bottom of this tray here and screwing that and is going to give you the full functionality so the majority of this tripod is plastic it's got a little plastic lever here this part up top is actually metal here but this is plastic on the handle this handle here is plastic I'll be at a pretty heavy-duty plastic and then this is kind of like a very lightweight aluminum for the actual legs here then these are plastic on the bottom for kind of extending your legs here so you can just kind of flip these and telescope the legs out so there's two different controls there so you can really play around with this and make a lot bigger if you want to so last thing I've got here is your screen so you you always could throw this up on the wall especially if you have a white wall this is gonna be a little bag to carry it in see this little velcro bag it's got some straps on it here so it's gonna be pretty cool because that's something that you can easily take with you kind of like with the rest of the stuff they'll have a little carrying kit and a bag for everything so overall everything will fit together very nicely now this is a hundred inch screen all right so what you can do with these is you see the little grommets here you can basically either use a string there's multiple ways to do this you can either use a PVC pipe and make a frame to put this around otherwise you can just use hooks you can use nails on the wall ideally you want to keep it tight to kind of pull that so that this has a nice tight fit when you're actually watching movies and stuff so unfolding this just to give you a quick idea you can see kind of see what you're working with on the other side here you're gonna have the white and then you'll have these grommets going all the way around to attach it to the wall to your PVC base if you use an outdoors wherever you're gonna put it so we'll just end up throwing that up on the wall and let's go put all this together and I'll show you what it looks like so what you're currently looking at is about a four by seven foot picture on the wall here this is just the main menu so this is what you're gonna see when you have it pulled up so I do actually have up on the wall there the screen if I turn this light on real quick you can kind of see the border of it up there the black border around there so I just have it hung up there with nails I basically just stretched it and kind of put nails in at angles where it's kind of keeping it taut so this is a 800 by 480 native resolution so you are coming in at you know 480p pretty much so if i zoom in really close here you can probably see you know a little bit of pixelation as we get pretty close here you can see some of the pixels they're zoomed in a little bit but overall this quality really isn't that bad especially when you blow it up real big on the wall I really don't notice a huge drop in the quality so this is like I said about 4 by 7 and it's really covering the whole wall over here in my living room so just to give you an idea you can see the TV over there on the left there's a hallway there that is the wall we're looking at with the 4 by 7 picture and there's actually a desk underneath that picture just for reference so you can see the projector is currently located right there now there's a bedroom door right over there so that's kind of the size of the room I'm working with and you can see the couch over this way so you can have a pretty decent home theater there and it's something you can easily hook up and unhook up you can no take it in a bag with you with all the different portability options that for with having the different level pack for the tripod you get your little kit for the projector itself so it's definitely very easy to go and take with you as well so you might be able to hear as far as the fan sound as far as these budget projectors especially as 800 by 480 s this really isn't that loud of a actual fan on this projector it actually seems like it's pretty low from hearing other ones so you can see here on Netflix kind of scrolling through the titles here you get a brief idea of a little bit of the quality there just the picture quality so this is 800 by 480 we're probably about 10 feet away I would say right now with the camera and this is like I said a four foot by seven-foot screen so you could definitely put this up a little closer and have a smaller picture as well but as you can see it looks pretty cool on the wall here let me see if I let some background music play here so you can see standing next to it the sound quality [Applause] so the sound quality is serviceable as you can see here even looking at some YouTube videos and stuff like this looking at John Prosser in front page tech you can definitely see you know pretty good quality here you're not really losing anything it's definitely watchable so as you see here you get a pretty good picture even watching YouTube videos here so I guess that is 800 by 480 resolution and the sound quality is definitely serviceable it's gonna work if you needed to use it if you put it up all the way the fans low enough that you're really not going to lose a whole lot of sound but you can definitely use that mic import to just put your own Bluetooth speaker or your home entertainment system hooked up to it it's going to drastically improve your audio and it's going to drastically improve the volume that you can get as well so here's another clip here just to give you an idea of kind of what you can expect and again this is that four foot by 7 foot picture so it's actually looking pretty good in my opinion and that's the thing I like about these especially the 480p one so when you blow them up big I feel like you really don't lose a whole lot of resolution compared to having them small because it's not gonna be a full 1080 picture natively so when you blow it up nice and big like this it still looks pretty cool and I feel like you really don't lose a whole lot so this isn't going to be half volume of the internal speaker [Applause] so just to show you real quick with the focus here on that we love the projector if you kind of scroll it side to side it's gonna change your focus there so to make it sharper you're basically going to mess around with that so that Keystone wheel there is going to mess with that tilt going back and forth so that's where if you have the Sun and angle if you're propping it up at all on the bottom then you might have to use that key stone just to just kind of the borders of it so as you see this is pretty cool that tray on the top of the tripod because you can basically put your Roku up there a DVD player remote got the projector up there so you actually have some extra space to throw up some things as well and it works out really well so I've got a miniature mess here gone off the cables but you can see the actual tripod here I've got it hooked up to a power strip back there so that I can use both my Roku and then I can put the actual projector power cord in there so I'm just choosing my HDMI cable to hook up here to the Roku and then like I said I'd recommend using the mic port right here to hook up to an external speaker as well so taking a close-up look here at the screen you can see like I said you've got those grommets going all around so I actually use the nails to hold that up there so depending on you know what you're doing if you're renting or if you're owning your property and stuff you might be limited a little bit what you can do but you can kind of see here you know I just used nails like I've got right down here and I basically did that all around the edges to get the look that I wanted so it was kind of easy I was trying to use like 3m adhesive strips at first and stuff like that and I kind of started running into issues and I basically just decided to start using nails and I just made sure that they were nice and tight and that it kind of pulled the screen nice and tight on the wall there you can definitely have people over have a movie night and it's gonna be a pretty cool picture so I would definitely recommend it for you know pretty good price you can get all three of these things get a projector get your try pods stand and get your actual screen to throw up on the wall and you can have a pretty awesome budget projector and home theater so the only other thing to mention is that these are under conditions of you know pretty much complete darkness in here I do have the shades draw and I do have pretty much all the lights off and you can see you'll get a pretty good picture during the daytime it's going to be a little bit different it's gonna be kind of washed out if it's light in here it doesn't mean that you can't use it but definitely definitely is going to affect the image quality so I definitely recommend using it at night or if you've got really good blackout curtains and you can kind of control the environment using it that way if I put one light on in the room here kind of the overhead dining room lights on you can kind of see the picture there so again lights off lights on so you can kind of get an idea for if you know you have a sunny day and you've got some light coming in through the windows it might be a little bit washed out it's still going to be usable if you can do do your part and kind of trying to cover up the windows a little bit better but again complete darkness is definitely gonna be when you're gonna want to use this the most work great for movie nights game nights stuff like that once the Sun Goes Down so I hope you guys like that these budget projectors are actually really cool they're becoming way more affordable on Amazon if you want them for like you know college dorm room to have them for a cheap setup for your living room or to have a game night movie night for the kids they're actually pretty darn cool and they're very easy to set up well I guess I do have your own Bluetooth speaker or something like that you get the projector even if you want something like the tripod it definitely makes it easier to set it up and kind of raise the heights and stuff like that you really don't have to have the projector screen but depending on your wall color and stuff like that it will make your picture a little bit more crisp probably as well and a little more true to color they're very versatile there's really a ton of different uses that you can use them for all the links will be down there in the description below so those will be affiliate links there like I said this is a sponsored video by thank

BUDGET Home Theater Setup For UNDER $160? | Vankyo Leisure 3 Projector Review

  1. How did you get Netflix to work? Could I connect my iPhone 8 or MacBook to the projector and play Netflix? Are the cables I need to do this included with the projector or do I need to buy it separately? Thanks a lot!

  2. I'm looking for a projector in this price range. For now, all I want to do is display a series of jpg pics stored on a USB stick. I simply want to push one button to see one pic at a time, without have to go thru numerous steps. Will this unit do this?

  3. I brought everything you are showing, but my problem is that the projector is displaying the picture lopsided. It looks slanted on the left side only. How do I fix this. I tried adjusting each of the buttons and nothing.

  4. I'm thinking of purchasing one of these. Not bad for the price, but the pixel CT. is a bit low. I have other projectors and I really am looking for something better than what I already have. However if I were buying my first projector this seems like a great little unit with a lot of extras.

  5. That's awesome man, great review.
    For the price that looks like a really nice projector man.. that might be a good option for an RV or something like that since it has that great carrying case.
    Nicely done man!
