Rating: 5/5Amazing Device... This is the start of something new and awesome... terrible carry-case!
This review is from: ASUS P2B 1280x800 WXGA 350 lumens, Battery Powered, HDMI/MHL Inputs, 2GB Internal Memory, Short Throw Mini Portable Projector
Pros: Works beautifully. Picture is clear and bright with strong contrast and quite large and clear.
I LOVE that I can pull this projector out of my bag with ZERO wires and fire it up. No power cables (runs on Li battery), no pc cables (use usb flash or 2gb built-in), and most importantly its picture quality rivals (and beats!) normal sized projectors we have around here.
-Boots and warms up quickly (seconds) -Sharp clear picture which is not faded or washed out. -Intuitive responsive interface with nifty remote (+red dot laser built-in) -Reads ntfs usb flash disks quickly and well -Supports mp4 and some other video and audio files -Numerous up to date ports like hdmi, micro-sd -Built in decent speakers!? (like a laptop quality sound) -The projector is really a lot smaller and lighter than I expected -Build quality is solid and buttons are firm and clicky -Well cooled. Doesn't get very hot
Cons: -Should support powerpoint and other professional type documents (supports doc, txt, etc).
-Does not support fat32 or other format types for usb, so mac users need a separate flash for this thing.. or windows?
-Does not support certain common video files like .avi- had to convert my avi files to mp4. Maybe a firmware update soon?
-The included bag is nice but an insult to the overall prestige of this device. Does not protect device very well and is too tight. Needs more padding, needs a handle... overall bag should be updated to something respectable. With this garbage you MUST buy a proper bag for this device if you plan on transporting it around with you. Make sure you shop around for one now and take its price into consideration. I still need to find one so I can't recommend one yet.
Other Thoughts: Since the bag is something extra I won't remove an egg.
However, other projector come with poor bags because those bags don't matter since projectors are usually mounted or planted on a cart or table and are rarely transported. This is a mini projector though- very like to be bought by customers for mobility and transporting... so how could they drop the ball on this and provide such a carelessly and poorly thought out bag design? They should have either did it right or provided no bag at all and drop the price by $20 or so dollars so people can buy their own.
