As prices decrease, projectors are becoming a popular way to get that big image without the use of a traditional television, this portable projector from TOPVISION was upgraded in 2019 with a 4500 brightness LED light, native 1280×720 pixels resolution, 1080P supported and 2000:1 contrast ratio.
This projector is compatible with a PC, laptop, iPad, iPhone and Android phones, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Chromecast, Xbox and PS4, however you will probably come across some copyright issues when trying to stream from some services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video so it’s worth checking if they are compatible before inviting all your mates over. This isn’t the smallest of portable projectors measuring up at approx. 3”x 7”x 6”, also it doesn’t come with a carry case so it’s best to keep the packaging for transportation.
There are two HiFi Stereo speakers built in which provide reasonable audio, it can sound a little harsh at loud volumes and it won’t blow you away when watching movies or playing games but you can always add an external speaker if needed thanks to the 3.5mm audio jack. The image size can be adjusted from 32” up to 200” with a projection distance of between 4.9ft to 18ft, for optimum results the best viewing distance is 10 feet with a 98 inch projection. This projector can be mounted on a tripod, flat surface or ceiling mount via the universal extending ceiling projector mount, the fan has been upgraded for a more efficient cooling system as well as bringing the noise down to a minimum. The TOPVISION video projector features a five layer well-grinding LCD lens to work in tandem with an LED bulb that last up to 60,000 hours, the 4500 Lumens and 1080P HD image looked really impressive for the price, it is easy to adjust the image with the keystone correction and the focus ring. If you are looking for a low cost projector for cinema nights, presentations or gaming this is a great choice, the buttons take a little getting used to but other than that it is easy to use with an impressive picture quality for a projector of this size, we would recommend using an external speaker for a better audio experience. RRP £99.99.
