Confirmed purchaser I am a professional

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
Small size.
Bad points:
Other than the small size, the product was really disappointing. I bought it for the purpose of presentations to small groups. It does not connect to the laptop from the USB, but rather through an AV link, which I can't get to work with my Sony Vaio, although I got two adaptors for this.

For this product to really make any sense, it has to connect through the USB port and maybe also perhaps have a bluetooth option. I am actually extremely dissatisfied by the product and if I could return it I would (I don't have all the packaging in place because i thought it will work with the adaptors).

Terry, Soham

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
comes with 2 batterys what last about 1 hour 15 mins or so, great colour quality. The unit feels really nice quality and is very simple to use especially with a portable dvd player in the car or in a bedroom. i managed to get the screen size a massive 90 inches (total darkness around) and the picture was clear as ever.
Bad points:
the speaker is okay in a silent enviroment but for films you definatly need speakers. It could come with a more flexible cable on the charger as when the projector is on a tripod, the stiffness and weight of the power cable pulls it over. other than that theres no major bads with this item

Nick, Farnborough

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Size, weight, brightness.
Bad points:
Cannot connect to PC and cannot accommodate a media card, making it very limited in terms of content that can be shown, unless you have a Nokia phone or iPod (but then you still need to purchase the relevant cables separately).
