Update: I've heard from a Cheapskate who purchased this projector that the specs are, let's say, somewhat inflated on the Amazon product page. According to the reader, this is a 720p native device, not a 1080p projector. I'd say that changes the calculus substantially, and I would probably not recommend the projector with that in mind.
Perhaps you saw that the projector of your own. But two-and-a-half large ones is a lot to spend to beam moving pictures on the wall, regardless of the image quality. How does $133 sound instead? Right now you can get when you apply discount code GLMDIU62 at checkout. That's $57 off the regular price of $190. Obviously, it's in a completely different ballpark than the Vava, but if you're looking for a solid budget HD projector, this might be the one for you., and dreamed wistfully about getting a portable
Native HD projectors aren't common in this price range, so it's definitely worth a gander. Because of its 1,920x1,080 pixel resolution, video looks sharp when projected onto walls up to 20 feet away -- depending on how you position the projector, you can get images from 60 inches to a crazy 230 inches (almost 20 feet) diagonal. Of course, keep in mind that brightness falls off with distance, so you should probably stick to 60-inch to 70-inch projections for the best results.
The projector is equipped with both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, USB, HDMI and a media card reader. You can connect it to a wide variety of sources that include your phone, tablet or laptop and media streamers like an Amazon Fire TV Stick or Roku device. It also has built-in speakers, so you don't have to hook it up to external speakers when taking it on the road.
Don't know the Fangor name? Neither do I. The projector has 4.5 stars with over 900 Amazon customer ratings -- but a lot of those, according to both ReviewMeta and FakeSpot. That doesn't mean that the reviews aren't deserved, but it does make it harder to figure out if the projector is a good buy. For what it's worth, Fangor offers a three-month free return period and a three-year free repair warranty.
