Bright LED suitable for daytime viewing, but best in very dark settings. Great audio, color saturation, and contrast for its price class. Amazon Affiliate Product Link:

You’ll receive the projector, remote control, 5ft power cable, 8” RCA input cable, 5 ft HDMI cable, and an instruction manual. The projector is fairly large weighing nearly 8 lbs and measuring 13”W x 9”L x 4”H. On the front of the projector is the 3” diameter lens which has a hard plastic cover cap.

On the back are the VGA input, two HDMI inputs, two USB inputs with the left one also supplying 5V power, the AV/RCA input for the included cable, a headphone out port, microSD card slot, and rear IR receiver for the remote control. In the bottom right, the vent door over the fan is removable for cleaning, to prevent overheating. On the bottom are four rubber feet that are removable and reveal M3 mounting points for ceiling mounting brackets or racks.

The remote requires 2 AAA batteries which are not included, and it has additional keys and functions like volume control, channel selection, play/pause, fast forward, and rewind. I was able to set up this projector in my living room, which is pretty small at 15×14, and project the image to fill a 120″ screen. However, the projector is rated to go even larger, up to 200″ given enough space. This projector is compatible with both front and rear projection screens because you can flip the image vertically and/or horizontally, depending on whether or not you’ve ceiling mounted the unit.

In very bright conditions, e.g. a room with all the lights on, or outdoors during the daytime, the projected image will appear pretty washed out given the ANSI lumens rating of around 200. However, with most of the lights off, the projection looked pretty good even with a little ambient light coming from in front of and behind the screen I was using. However, the projector is best viewed in pitch dark conditions. While the projector doesn’t have WiFi capability, the HDMI and other input methods worked fine and allowed me to add WiFi streaming via a Chromecast, FiveTV stick, or Apple TV. It accepts input resolutions up to 1080p, the native output resolution is 1280 x 768 (720p) and downscales higher resolution video accordingly. That said, the image quality is a lot better than 480p projectors that I’ve used and has great color saturation and contrast for the price.

One of the things that surprised me about this projector is that the fan is fairly quiet. In fact, when watching a movie and sitting only a few feet in front of the projector, the fan noise was undetectable. The built-in stereo speaker was clear and loud with only a slight tinge of sounding boxy. The projection of the speaker was also very good in a small room (with the sound set to the ‘Surround’ setting there seemed to be a slight boost to volume) and there was little distortion at higher volume levels. For the best audio experience though, I recommend connecting an external speaker via the headphone jack using a standard 1/8” jack audio cable, though it doesn’t support Dolby audio.

Overall, this projector does a great job with displaying high definition video in dark conditions with very good color, brightness, sound, and saturation. The built-in speaker does a fine job on its own and is perfectly suitable for movie nights, though if you use an external speaker you can bump up your experience a notch. The projector also works great for gaming or even business presentations since the HD resolution makes text fairly easy to read.
