Confirmed purchaser

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It is really easy to set up, I've used it direct from my DVD player and also to project my laptop, it worked perfectly first time for both.
It's great value for money. It cost less than the competitive products but has all the features and more.
Bad points:
The 'zoom' doesn't do much. The image size is mostly controlled by distance from the screen.
The internal speaker isn't great so if you want to watch movies you'll need some seperate speakers.
There is no HDMI port and I don't know how this will affect compatibility with future DVD players etc.

Confirmed purchaser Local Beekeeping Committee Member

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I wanted a simple projector with 'no frills' to enable our local beekeeping brance to display powerpoint presentations from a laptop computer. This does the job. It is very easy to set up and use. The controls are easy to understand and the picture quality is excellent. I have used it to display an image about 1 sq metre and it is fine for that - and probably larger too. I am encouraged by the projected lamp life (if it really is 4000 hours it will last us a lifetime).
Bad points:
Only one - which is easily surmountable - it does not include a lead to connect to the laptop. But these are easily purchased for a few quid at PC World.
