Pros: *Deceivingly brighter
*Insanely lightweight and managable
*Works great to display images for artistic structuring
Cons: *Remote keypad is annoyingly difficult to use--I believe your aim has to be as accurate as playing a game of Laser Tag
*Image displayed is "off" or not correct, as I will describe in Other Thoughts
*Power Adapter gets very hot after a short period--as little as 15 minutes
*Manual is lacking information, and the online PDF may have a few pages more but is still not complete
Other Thoughts: My primary use for this purchase is for casting still images at a short distance to construct complex artwork and to replace my old-school 'jector. This is the only COST EFFECTIVE product that I have investigated that doesn't require a great throw distance for displaying a screen size for something as small as an 11x14 or 16x20 piece.
I am capable of using the P300 in a lit room without losing clarity.
Neither manual (on-hand nor online) mention how to access the fabled Zoom feature (I say "fabled" because online reviews state there is none and only manual focus). You can find "extra" controls not listed in the manuals by moving your selection further in either direction for both Video Controls and Photo Controls (I haven't tried Music yet). The zoom is done in large increments, but is suitable for how I need it.
Again, the manual lacks info on what formats the projector can handle. You will find this info only under Specifications on the AAXA P300 webpage.
What I have noticed within Images is that the full image is not dispayed. After playing with settings and such, I was still missing nearly a half inch on the right edge and a quarter from the bottom. I can only ASSUME it also shifts video images in a similar matter.
The only two main issues I have are:
--The power adapter. It gets phenomenally hot. I honestly fear it burning-out or worse.
--Remote. If it had a neck, I'd choke it. I prefer using the controls on the 'jector, but I risk moving it out of position. I don't have the patience to aim the remote like a gun nor want to grit my teeth knowing my selection either went too far/hadn't moved/delayed and a wrong selection is made.
Despite the negatives, the P300 is still a great investment for everything I need it for. And for any artist wanting to save 300 dollars, give this a gander before buying a competitors. If you need the grids with the 'jector, I can understand choosing the competitor. But is a grid worth that much more?
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H90 High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 140mm
Pros: Works very well under heavy load. Also, a brilliant partner for the Air 540.
Other Thoughts: As I was installing this, I kept fearing that the hose was gonna leak. With the paranoia now set-aside, the H90 fit snuggly and beautifully over the i7-4820K in Corsair's Air 540.
