@robson I do love and respect violas for playing music, and for being actresses and civil rights activists. I do not love and respect them as exclamations showcasing some effect that happened as if by magic. In those instances, I strongly prefer voilas.
Yeah, there’s a reason these are so cheap. The light intensity sucks. You have to use them in COMPLETE darkness, or you can’t see squat. Pop another ten bucks and get something that’s at least marginally useful.
I got 2 of these when they had them around Halloween. The intensity is pretty bad, but the effects are pretty neat and worked ok shining on the ‘screen’ through the window.
My cat liked it…So much that she ripped the “screen”. I don’t want to open the other one just for that, anyone use anything other than what it came with? I was thinking a shower curtain might be too thick…Maybe one from the dollar store? Hah.
You might take a look at translucent plastic sheets (try hardware or arts & crafts stores). You should be able to get it thick enough to at least resist the cat, and the thickness shouldn’t be a problem if the opacity is low enough.
@TuxFL I don’t have this projector, but I did use a frosted shower curtain for my Halloween display. Worked out well. It probably helped that the clip was literally filmed behind a plastic sheet though. The wrinkles you see in the video are the clip, not my curtain.
I bought last time for $10. For $6. meh,for $9.nah. It’s not that bright, it needs to sit about 15 feet from window, and you can’t add additional clips. The clips are to short.The xmas ones are dumb. It cuts off in the middle of singing and then repeats ad nauseam. I bought a HD box store clearance one for $29. that has a sd card slot, a speaker, and is brighter.
@rixon I’d be more interested in the screen being used but might be better to just get a good LED flashlight instead of bothering with the built-in optics. Still on the fence with this thing, I already have enough junk in my house.
Just got the shipping notification and these are being sent to the wrong address. My folks spend the winter in Florida (but are currently home for the holidays) and my last Meh order was for my father so it was shipped to their Florida address. Now that they are home I can’t even have them forward the package to me. I caught that the wrong address was saved when I placed my order on Sunday but it didn’t even dawn on me that the address was wrong for this order and in my sleepless stupor (the baby has an ear infection) I didn’t see it on the order page. Is there anything I can do?
Quality of images are terrible. Should have read reviews prior to basically burning the money I spent on this. Dumb me for falling for the cute advertisement. Don’t waste money. I’m regifting 2nd one at a Christmas party game…
I appreciate that! I did reach out and am still waiting to hear back. The funny thing is I received the shipping label in my mailbox today. No package, no item, just the shipping label on the cardboard that was cut away from the package.
