Luckily, we found this little projector and after reading through some of the reviews, decided to go with this because it seemed like a great choice for something under $100.
The projector came packed in a very nice, compact carrying case and contained an HDMI cable, VGA cable, 1-to-3 AV cable, and its power cord. It also had a remote which can control the projector itself. The body of the projector is plastic, but feels solid (though I would not want to drop it, that's for sure).
Setting up the projector is incredibly easy and quick. You just need to plug in the power cord, whatever video cord you need, and you're good to go! Note, for you Mac users out there: you're gonna want to pick up a lightning-to-HDMI adapter if you want to use the HDMI connection. We first tried to connect the HDMI cable straight to my partner's Macbook but the projector was unable to detect the connection. We then tried using the same HDMI cable on my PC laptop to check if maybe the cable was a dud, but lo and behold, the projector was able to recognize my PC.
So far I have only tried connecting to the projector using an HDMI cable to a laptop. I have not noticed any lag or issues between the laptop and the projected image, which is great!
The projector does have speakers built in, but I've found that the audio quality is slightly tinny and can be overpowered by the projector's fan (check the video I've included in this review). Overall though, the fan is quiet compared to others, but it is definitely noticeable and can be annoying to some. To get around that issue, I connected my speaker via an AUX cord to the headphone jack on the projector. The audio coming out of the speaker was loud and clear enough to drown out the fan.
The image quality of the projector is actually really nice for something that's under $100! We don't have a projector screen, but we haven't noticed any discrepancies or image issues with projecting onto a light beige wall. I really appreciate the fact that we can also focus the image with projector itself, adjust the vertical tilt of the image, and decrease the size of the screen rather than awkward trying to find that perfect distance between the wall and the projector. Those features are especially great for those using the projector in areas where there isn't much space between the projector and the wall.
Overall, this is a choice for those on a budget! I absolutely would recommend this projector to others.
