If that’s 250 lumens over the ANSI-spec screen section, it’s damned good. And if it was 250 lumens of light output from the projection light source, the screen would be dim enough that nobody would buy it. I’m going to figure that it’s the former, based on the other reviews I’m seeing.
Looks like hooks that stick on to a vertical surface. How well that would work on a backyard fence or some such is anybody’s foolishly optimistic guess.
They say "easy tabletop assembly, but I don’t see any mention of a frame of any kind, so I’m guessing that they only give you a pack of stick-on hooks, and you’d best hope that you never need to set it up in a second place (assuming that the first one works).
Also, photoreflective surfaces tend to be really touchy about being folded, in my experience. I’d call that a tarp, myself.
It’s the appearance of it just being a sort of tarp with either Velcro or shower curtain hooks in the photos combined with the talk of the “tabletop” assembly that was confusing me. When I think tabletop I think it stands on its own, and this, as you’ve noted, doesn’t show any proof it can.
I think I’ve figured out the “earing port” thing; looks like a bad translation of “earphone jack”. There’s a headset jack on the side in the photos and diagrams, but no mention is made of one in the specs. so I’m going to figure that’s what they’re talking about. This device and its docs just reek of “we don’t actually make these, and we’re not even sure what some of these specs mean ourselves.” Given the number of functionally identical products coming across the big pond with a zillion different brand labels slapped on to the box, that’s not surprising.
The well-designed speaker system produces clear, stereo, and all-around sound which complements your viewing experience
Umm, the specs show one small speaker grille on the rear. This is a speaker system how? This is stereo how? There’s a headphone jack on the side, which one could presumably run to an amplified speaker setup, but nothing I saw gave any details about that.
Looked at reviews for this and saw that it had the same OSD menu as the 720p Medion model I got from Aldi for $130. I liked it enough but took it back because I wanted 1080p. This looks like the answer. If it’s anything like other cheap projectors cranking up maximum settings crushes similar colors together. Lower brightness and other settings for best results.
Just got it. For $80 this thing slaps. Quieter than a jet engine and brighter than a free flashlight from harbor freight. Screen looked worse than a bare wall. Kept it Incase I want to project somewhere there isn’t a bare wall.
@calpdavis you must have received a lemon because the one I got is so bright it’s clear even with the lights on and that’s when being projected onto a bare eggshell finished wall. I do agree it’s a bit on the loud side but you hardly notice when connecting a good quality sound bar
