Good Sound Quality

One customer mentioned in their reviews that the product had good sound quality. Aeo mentioned on Amazon “It is also a bit awkward to connect it to louder speakers- the projector has its own audio conversion when you plug it in” in their review.

6 Reasons Against

User Reviews Are Poor

On average, people who bought this projector rated it as 57%. This means that owners really don't rate this Aiptek multimedia projector very highly.

Aiptek Only Has Unexceptional Reviews for Its Projectors

Average reviews across all Aiptek multimedia projectors are unexceptional, however average reviews across just Aiptek's battery powered projectors are ok.

Poor Product Quality

One Aiptek MobileCinema i55 reviewer who purchased it said that it was not good quality. Aeo said in their review of this projector on Amazon three years ago “The only problems are that it really isn't too bright (the best quality is obtained at night-time)” although they still scored the Aiptek MobileCinema i55 80 out of 100.

Does Not Support 3D

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the MobileCinema i55, the MobileCinema i55 does not support 3D.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also support 3D that you might also want to look at including the Optoma DH1009 (£499.43) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most similar spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago do not support full HD. The MobileCinema i55 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors which also support full HD including the PPX3410/F7, or the PPX3410/CN both from Philips or the Optoma DH1009 (£499.43) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other data projectors of this age and type, the MobileCinema i55 does not support wi-Fi.

VGA (640x480) Projector Native Resolution

The MobileCinema i55 has a maximum resolution of VGA (640x480). That's 25% less resolution than a WVGA (854x480) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

The MobileCinema i55 has a relatively standard projector brightness (50 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the MobileCinema i55.

We compared all the other 50 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this data projector and we think the AAXA Technologies P3 Pico, and the Aiptek PocketCinema V60 (£366.72) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the PPX3410/CN (60 ANSI lumens), or the PPX3610/CN (100 ANSI lumens) both from Philips or the Aiptek MobileCinema i60 (£219.00) (70 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
