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
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
Should support powerpoint and other professional type documents (supports doc, txt, etc)
Does not support fa 32 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 m 4. 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
As it stands, there is not anything extremely wrong or upsetting with the laptop. One thing I will say is that the graphics are not as crisp as I am used to, so it may be worth their while for Eluktro
