micro projector - better than I thought it would be (review)
 
Ok...So I have my home theater set up already and I think its pretty decent for my paycheck. I bought this aaxa m1 as more of a toy than anything (something to play movies with while i'm out camping or whatever as well as for presentations). Anyways, I am very pleasantly surprised at what this. I've had friends own big projector units as well as these pico projector units but I never found a liking to either. The big ones burn bulbs and the bulbs themselves cost as much as the little ones. The little ones aren't even toys.

I know that i can use it as a dual monitor for my laptop and the specs are supposed to be pretty decent

specs:

So.. I read some decent things about this and pretty much pulled the trigger for 300 bucks... I don't really know what to say but i have pictures.

That looks pretty usable. Does it wash out with the room lights on? 66 lumens seems pretty low.

it washes out but its still pretty usable say - for a small office presentation.

my pad isn't too dark in those photos which is why i put it up to the tv to compare. its a bleak compare (like apples to oranges) but i think it displays pretty well what we're seeing.

also, its 66 ansi lumens (after all the processing) so its not too bad.
