The projector has 2W built-in speakers and a 3.5mm stereo output.

It also has an output for external speakers in the case whereby you want the sound from the projection to be heard by those outsides.

Projection

Equipped with a 3.5-inch LCD panel, the projector features color enhanced brightness. With a 500:1 contrast ratio that produces a fairly colorful image.

The kit includes a 4 x 6-ft white projection screen that can give a maximum image size of about 100 inches. This screen enables easy display onto the windows.

If your window screen is bigger than the projection screen provided, you can use an affordable white shower curtain.

Image projection can be done vertically or horizontally. This depends on how you place your projector on the screen.

The first step in the set-up is to hang and position your projector screen against the window.

The next step is to place your projector against the screen and adjust using the tripod to any desired position. Note that if you want a bigger projection, you have to place your projector far away from the window.

What we like

We like the portability of this projector. Not only is it portable, but it is also affordable.

The test video on the USB stick is awesome and can be used alone or in addition to other videos for the purpose of the festive period.

What we don’t like

This projector would have ruled our Christmas and Halloween if the lumen and contrast ratio was greater. This would have given us a better image quality.
