Good read. Some reviews say "hilarious"; no; some of it is quite amusing, but some it far from amusing. Overall, you'll learn a lot about living in Iceland if you read this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, but don't expect it to perform like a business projector!, 29 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I received the projector quickly, and it was well and safely packed. When I read the instruction book, before switching it on (yes, some people do!!) I was a bit concerned to see that, in contradiction of the listing, it isn't recommended for Word or spreadsheet files. I went for this one because the listing said that it was suitable for presentations by using the computer and a UB or VGA link - exactly what I wanted it for.

I also found myself concerned to discover that i couldn't turn the focus ring.It was jammed. I persevered, and managed to free it; but I have to say that it is rough and feels quite difficult to use. I also found that the optical keystone correction changes the focus - not ideal.

However, it worked straight out of the box (apart from the focus) and I hooked it up to my MacBook with a VGA cable. The picture appeared almost instantly. So I then ran a presentation file. It does work for presentations; but you have to be careful with colors. It doesn't like red! Probably because it uses LEDs, which have a natural bias to blue. But if you pick a dark blue background, with white, yellow, or pale green lettering, it's fine. The contrast is a bit lacking to do black on white. I tried different picture settings, only to find that Standard is best. The definition is about on a par with early incandescent digital projectors. In other words, not very sharp. So you need to use a large font size - i use 28-36 point for text, 44 point for headers - and it's best if you use a BOLD font.

For the price, I'm not disappointed. I agonized whether to buy a used incandescent projector, or a new LED one. I think the LED one was the right decision. It's much better than not having a projector, and with a bit of care, the results should be fine for my purpose, and the risk of a very expensive bulb blowing is not there.

It's early days yet, and I have yet to use it in anger. But providing you don't expect it to perform like the latest bulb type at several times the price, I can't see anything much against it. It's good value, easy to use, and compact. On that proviso, I can recommend it.
