    Great picture for a fraction of the price of other unit. If used with HD fury you can get a truely outstading image. It is also a very bright projector that can be seen in full daylight! Bad points
    Only has VGA and DVI Inputs Was this review helpful? Yes No

    The projector was easy to configure and very small / light. It has lots of features and I'm particularly impressed by it's ability to detect the image source and adjust to the appropriate brightness, gamma etc. It can even automatically change to the last 'user defined' setting for unusual sources such as a games console. The image itself is very bright and clear, I'm using it as my TV in the living room and it's giving a 59" display area. Bad points
    The built-in speaker isn't very good and gives quite a 'tinny' sound. It's OK for 'general' TV watching but I wouldn;t want to rely on it for watching films etc. I use a surround sound system when watching films and playing games. The projector noise level is low, but if you're wathing something with a very quiet soundtrack you can sometimes notice the fan above the film. The connections at the back offer all sorts of ways to connect image sources, but if you want to connect a dvd etc you need to use S Video, separate RGB phono plugs or an adapter from HDMI to phono or DVI. To connect sound when using SVIDEO you'll also need a 5mm Jack plug connection. On balance a very good projector though. Was Nigel's review helpful? Yes No
