LG PW800 1280 x 800 WXGA 800 ANSI Lumens, DTV Tuner, WiDi/Miracast, HDMI/USB Inputs, Built in Speakers, 3D Ready Portable LED Projector
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -Small footprint and lightweight making it very easy to carry around (very portable)
-Comes with light blue plastic skin protector
-Comes with remote control
-The specs state 800 ANSI Lumens which is bright in my opinion
-Specs say 1280x800 but for us normal people...it can do Standard Definition size (SD) and Hi Definition size (HD) as well as Wide Screen formatting
-The display is truly amazing! I can get a 60" screen projected on the wall at just 5 ft away! The amazing part is that it's crystal clear too!
-Can project onto white walls wonderfully (<---is that such a word?)...anyways, it can project onto any white surface fine although you'd want it flat for good picture quality.
-Auto adjusts the tilt of the image depending if you're pointing it straight or at a steep angle so the image looks "flat" onto the surface.
-Built in screw hole on the bottom (like cameras) so you can mount onto any regular tripod
-Comes with awesome inputs & output:
1x Coaxial Port - for Cable TV or older equipment input
1x HDMI - connects to PC, Laptop, tablets and Blu Ray players
1x Audio/Video input - used with included A/V cables for RCA
cables
1x USB (2.0) port - thumbdrives, external hard drives Z(3.5" or full
5")
1x VGA port - for PC input or laptop input
1x Audio (headphones) out - to connect to headphones or stereo amp
-Comes with built in speakers
-Built in DTV Tuner - great if you have Cable TV or even just a regular antennae!
-Supports WiDi/Miracast - great for my Android devices to wireless stream video content to this projector
-Supports MP4 playback and ripped DVD/BluRay via USB
-3D ready - supports 3D BluRay quality videos and projects them in 3D format onto the screen
-Built in joystick (on the top) is awesome when you don't have remote handy for navigation (also doubles as the power button)
-It does get a little hot to the touch after an hours worth of watching but nothing burning, besides it's very well ventilated and there's a built in fan
-Lastly, it has a built in depth of view slider to adjust image quality depending on how close or far the projector is to the wall.

Cons: -Bulky power brick
-Short power cords
-No legs or pegs to help direct the projector up (or down)
-No cover for the lens, may get dust particles or (worst) scratches on it
-Power button should be separate from joystick, it gets hard (without remote) to hold he power button down until the unit totally shuts down.
-Does not support all H.24 codecs, especially audio. I'm not too familiar with formats, codecs and such but although it played most video formats (mpg, divx, avi) that I put in, some of the audio formats did not work properly.
-The colors representation is awesome, but the black levels weren't as good as my LED TV

Other Thoughts: This projector is awesome. It's lightweight, well built (quality), small footprint sized and comes with the bare accessories to get it up and runnning in no time. It even comes with a screw pin hole thingee on the bottom so you can use it with regular tripods.

The colors are vibrant, it creates an amazingly large picture for its small size and the resolution isn't bad either. Even in full daylight, I was able to project to the walls and ceiling and be able to make out the video that was being played. When night time came (or when no lights were turned on), the image was bright and the colors popped just like my LED TV! The only issue was the black/dark areas were just not as dark or black as my LED TV...but definitely not a deal breaker at all either.

It played most of the video formats I threw at it. The miss and hit audio formats were more of an issue that can be fixed rather than blaming it on the projector's fault for not being able to read it.

The remote control is functional. It's not the best, but it gets the job done right. The IR is located on the back of the projector.

The available inputs are more than enough to get a video played through the projector (Coaxial, VGA, HDMI, RCA). The only thing missing is WiFi (but it does support Miracast).

Testing:
As a first test, I placed the LG projector about 6 feet from the wall and sat literally next to it. Since there was a screw hole mount thingee on the bottom, I mounted it right onto my tripod (that I normally use for my camera). The visible screen size in wide format was amazing at approx. 60". Even bigger than my 55" LED TV I had in the other living room! My kids went nuts watching Big Hero 6!

Because the speakers didn't produce enough audio to even hear over when the fans kicked in, I plugged it into my JBL bluetooth speakers and it was great!

My advice:
This is my very first projector and so far it's blowing my mind! If you can afford it, I would highly recommend it especially to anyone looking for a portable projector. If you can get passed the small flaws, then this becomes a portable, quality well built projector that plays your movies via USB! What else do you need for a back yard movie night?

The only major gripes are the big power brick along with short power wires, no cover for the lens and the barely-can-hear speakers.

Rosewill RHRC-13002 - Fuzzy Logic Rice Cooker -  10 Cups Uncooked / 20 Cups Cooked
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs Review for Rosewill RHRC-13002 Fuzzy Logic Rice Cooker 02/25/2015

This review is from: Rosewill RHRC-13002 - Fuzzy Logic Rice Cooker - 10 Cups Uncooked / 20 Cups Cooked

Pros: -Great rice cooker for the price (got it for $65 after tax & shipping)
-Large enough for 20 cooked cups of rice
-LCD display is awesome, gives heads up of a lot of information such as temperature, time, etc.
-comes with 8 pre-programmed modes although we only use about 3 of them
-comes with non-stick coated pot (essential for Asian Rice or any other rice for that matter)
-comes with plastic spoon rice scooper and measuring cup
-3 dimension cooking, I don't know too much about this but it's supposed to be a better way of cooking the rice...so far the rice has come out perfect every time I use this thing!
-cooks both white and brown rice too
-it runs super quiet, don't even know it's on unless you read the LCD screen
-lastly, it runs cool and doesn't get hot to the touch. This is great if you have kids.
-Warm functionality keeps the rice warm and rice doesn't spoil for up to 2 days! You just need to press the warm button every 12 hours...
-We also cooked super sticky Asian rice in it and it turned out wonderful!

Cons: Super bulky - it takes a lot of counter space
Rice Warm button only keeps the rice warm for 12 hours at a time, need a button to keep the rice warm ALL OF THE TIME!
Both of these are just minor gripes....no stars taken away.

Other Thoughts: If you want a great Fuzzy Logic Rice Cooker, this product is not that bad at all! I was very worried and hesitant to purchase it, but after using it for over 2 months now...I know I made the right choice. There are OTHER named brands out there with similar products but for the price ($65), Rosewill's brand is just as good.

I'd highly recommend this product for great price, best rice cooker I've had so far, it keeps the rice warm for long periods of time and it has (so far) been very reliable. All of the other features are just cherries on the top for me! GET ONE if you need to cook lots of rice at a time (family of 9 young and hungry teens and adults). We're Asian too so we use this to cook rice 3 times a day!

EVGA 01G-P3-2615-RX GeForce GT 610 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

5 out of 5 eggs Review for EVGA GeForce GT 610 02/25/2015

This review is from: EVGA 01G-P3-2615-RX GeForce GT 610 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: Good price
has 1GB on board DDR3 RAM
Fits into PCI express 2.0 port
Runs fairly quiet
EVGA = good quality name
GeForce = NVidia (I support over AMD, not debating whether which one is better..just that I support Nvidia.
Supports dual screens
Plays and streams HD content without a hiccup (counting that you have the bandwidth from network)
Plays SFIV on lowest setting, how great is that?

Cons: None..really...for the price it's not bad...don't expect high quality gaming or anything of that nature!

Other Thoughts: Got this for an HTPC build. It plays HD content flawless. I also did some minor video editing using a 3rd party program (can't remember the program name). Did a little video with moving pictures and added some music (nothing like Premiere or After Effects).

I also tried Street Fighter IV on it and to my surprise, it played it on the lowest setting (I believe it was 800x600) resolution.
