Best 1500 Lumens LCD Mini Projector Cyber Monday Deals I’ve often thought about acquiring a mini-project for home theater so when I got a chance to test and review this one from DBPOWER I was more than thrilled.
Though this projector has a number of port and connection options, for my testing I wanted to see if I could turn this into a portable home theater. 1500 Lumens LCD Mini Projector Cyber Monday For my testing, I attached an Amazon Fire TV stick to the HDMI port. This worked perfectly.
Though I tested with the Amazon Fire TV stick, you can connect just to any device to this projector. It includes ports for VGA, HDMI, USB (in and out), AV, headphones, and an SD card. So, with the proper adapters, you can connect your smartphone, your PC, or even just play a slideshow from your camera memory card. The projector seems to run a little hot. Of course, at 1500 Lumens, you have to expect that.
However, the heat dissipation is good. The fans are not excessively noisy – though you can definitely hear them. Maybe its just me, but with the kickstand unscrewed all the way this projector looks a little like the Millennium Falcon – which delivers extra on the cool factor. The built-in speaker system is actually pretty decent. I was surprised. I expected a thin, tinny sound but instead got solid audio. Obviously, it’s not the optimum, and you’ll definitely want to hook this to an external sound system if you a real theater experience.
Except for the lens, the project is covered in plastic and seems pretty sturdy. However, I’d still like to locate a good, protective carrying case for it. That way I can also carry along the Fire TV stick, the included remote, the HDMI cable, and the power cable. The picture is crystal clear, and if you can get the room dark enough it’s stellar. This is a fantastic projector, particularly for the price.
