7 Reasons Against

Aiptek Only Has Unexceptional Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

Aiptek has ok ratings for its battery powered projectors, however it has unexceptional average ratings when measured across its entire projector range.

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The MobileCinema i50D has a fairly dim projector brightness (only 35 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MobileCinema i50D. Across all the projectors that were released more than two years ago the projector brightnesss range from 12 ANSI lumens to 5,500 ANSI lumens.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Philips PPX2340/CN (40 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Aiptek MobileCinema i50D does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MobileCinema i50D do have a built-in speaker(s).

Alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might also want to look at include the Benq GP2, or the Philips PPX2340/CN which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D

Most data projectors of a similar type and age to the MobileCinema i50D do not support 3D. The Aiptek MobileCinema i50D is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

Alternative projectors which also support 3D that you might want to look at include the Optoma DH1009 (£399.98).

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MobileCinema i50D, the Aiptek MobileCinema i50D does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support full HD including the PPX3410/BR, or the PPX3410/CN both from Philips or the Optoma DH1009 (£399.98).

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The MobileCinema i50D does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MobileCinema i50D also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support wi-Fi to this data projector and we think the PocketCinema V150W, or the PocketCinema A100W (£272.74) both from Aiptek or the Philips PPX3610/CN which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Very Small Offset

At only 50 percent, the Aiptek MobileCinema i50D has a fairly small offset compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type. The offsets of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the MobileCinema i50D range from 50% to 130%.

3 Other reasons to consider the Aiptek MobileCinema i50D

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when this battery powered projector was released.

Average Battery Life (max)

At 2 hours, the Aiptek MobileCinema i50D has a relatively average battery life (max) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

We compared this projector to all the other 2h maximum battery life multimedia projectors and we think the PPX2330/CN, the PPX2495/F7, and the PPX3610 (£409.99) all from Philips which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this projector battery life (max) is not long enough for you then you might want to look at the Aiptek PocketCinema N100 (2.5h) which is also higher rated.

This is brilliant and fun, we can now watch tv cinema style in bed projecting it on to the bedroom wall. On a serious note it's also proved very useful for staff presentations at work.

Hoped to be able to use with an Ipad 2 to show and app onto a rear projection screen. Works well for photo's and films but will not support other apps unless you does it through internet browser.
