Unacceptable Noise Level

Three people who bought the product considered that it was noisy.

  • The microphone in my action cam interferes with the speaker and makes a horrible screeching noise…
    Ozzy (Amazon) - June 2015
  • The color wheel makes a very disturbing high pitched noise; there is a loud buzzing noise in the power plug area; colors are dull, picture is really sharp…
    MarkZ (Amazon) - August 2015
  • It doesn't particularly bother me, still if you set the power saving mode on you can roughly halve the noise coming from it at the cost of some brightness…
