Top 5 Essential Accessories For Your Home Projection Experience

Projectors have become an important part of modern homes and offices. Newer models of projectors have extensive range, with more connection settings and ports that enhance the user experience with different options to play and connect your devices. With the increase in projector’s capability, there is also an increase in accessories available for different projectors. There are a few essential accessories that help to improve the image quality while others enhance the viewers’ experience. Some projector accessories include tripods, carrying case, adapters, HDMI cables, etc…

  • Projector Screen: The most important accessory to have with your projector is a good projector screen since it allows for a steady, clear image. The size and quality of the screen depends on the type of projector that you have. Most modern projectors can handle projection up to about 200 inches. It is also important to know how far to position your projector screen based on the projector’s throw ratio.  For rooms that have high ambient light, a light-rejecting projector screen is a must unless you can shut out the light completely.
  • External Speakers: Even though projectors have improved over the years, some still don’t come with built in speakers or come with very low quality speakers. Having one speaker will be enough to improve the sound quality, enough to enhance the quality of your viewing experience. 
  • Streaming Devices: Many projectors have video input through HDMI, which allows for the use of streaming devices such as Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, and Chromecast. These devices provide more options to watch your favorite shows and movies without the need to stream videos from your laptop or phone directly to the projector. 
  • Display Adapters: If the connector on your computer or smartphone is different from those on the projector, then you will need to include an adapter in your projector accessories list. The most popular display connectors are Apple Lightning to Digital AV Adapter, USB-C to HDMI adapter, and Mini HDMI to HDMI. It is important to get the right adapter accessories as you will encounter display errors when using incorrect adapters for iPhone or Samsung smartphones.
  • Carrying case or mounting brackets: The last accessories you should have with your projectors are the mounting brackets and carrying case. If you have a portable pico projector, you can get a carrying case that allows you to carry the projector wherever you go. A mounting bracket is nice to mount the projector into a fixed position.

AAXA P6X Portable Projector Vs. Dr. J HI-04 Mini Projector Comparison

Having trouble deciding what type of mini projector you want? Well look no further, we went and did a review and comparison on some of the most frequently bought mini projectors on the market, the AAXA P6X Portable Projector with 4-Hour Battery and 1000 LED Lumen on Battery (Eco Mode), and the Dr. J HI-04 Mini Projector 1080P Full HD Resolution. We based this comparison on a few factors that matter the most when looking to purchase a home movie projector; portability, resolution, and brightness.

*Scroll down for shop links of the two mini projectors.

Portability

Starting things off with portability;  the P6X Mini Projector boasts a weight of only 1.81 lb and with the dimensions, 6.25″ x 6.2″ x 1.85″. Whereas the Dr.J HI-04  mini projector weighs in at 3.00 lb with the dimensions 7.80″ x 6.02″ x 2.7″. Based on these specs the P6X mini projector seems to have the advantage in terms of portability, this matters mainly for anyone that tends to travel or has to meet certain criteria in terms of placement looking for a portable projector. 

Resolution

Right up next we have the resolution; the P6X portable projector native resolution starts at 1280×800 and a max resolution of 1920×1080.  The Dr.J Mini projector HI-04’s native resolution starts at 1280×720 and a max resolution of 1920×1080. In terms of native resolution, the P6X Portable Projector has the upper hand, having a better-projecting resolution at the start. However, in terms of max resolution, the two mini projectors are neck and neck! I can definitely see both of these projectors being used as outdoor projectors for family home theaters.

Brightness

Next, we have brightness; the P6X mini portable projector has a lumen rating of 1000 Lumens, whereas the Dr. J projector HI-04 does not have any information on the number of lumens it has. Based on what I see the P6X portable projector is a lot brighter in comparison to the Dr.J HI-04 mini projector, overall both have great brightness with neither being too dim.

Results

Overall it’s hard to say which mini projector triumphs over the other, both mini projectors have their pros and their cons. I wouldn’t say that one would is better than the other,  both range at different price points and are aimed towards two different audiences. Be sure to look for the mini projector that is the best fit for you and has the functions you really need.  Let us know what you think!

Vankyo V630 LED Projector VS. AAXA P6X Mini Projector

There is a myth that portable projectors which operate on batteries often have lower brightness or lumen rating than traditional projectors which lack built-in battery. Is it necessarily true? Today we’re going to review and compare the Vankyo V630 Projector 1080P HD LCD and compare it to the brand new AAXA P6X Mini Projector for Outdoor Movie and Backyard Movie Theater.

Size & Portability

Now I think what jumps out immediately is the size comparison, the AAXA projector is much smaller than the vankyo projector and much lighter. With the P6X only being at 1.81lbs and the V630 being at 5.95lbs. The Vanko Mini Projector 1080P HD will need a continuous power source, will not be hand-held, and not portable. The AAXA portable projector will have a 4-hour battery in eco mode, it comes with a tripod, and it is a 100% hand-held pico projector. Our verdict: The AAXA P6X Portable  Projector wins in size and portability.

Resolution Comparison

The Vankyo V630 Projector claims 1080p which is Full HD Resolution 1920 x 1080p. Note that the throw ratio and the lumen rating are missing in their official manual. The AAXA P6X goes green with an electrical manual. It is very detailed with 42 zoomable pages. The AAXA P6X claims a native resolution of WXGA which is 1280 x 800 Pixels. The Vankyo V630 Projector has some focus problems and the Images on the edge are out of focus, it has unreadable small texts on the left of the projection. We hope this issue only happens to the unit we ordered.

The AAXA P6X Mini projector has sharp images in perfect focus while the Vankyo Projector V630 has focus issues

Link: Comparison Video AAXA P6X vs Vankyo V630

Lumen (brightness) & Color Quality

AAXA P6X has 1000 LED Lumens on battery and 1100 LED Lumens plugged in thus

giving brighter image quality. This projector is perfect for those looking for the great clarity of an image. The Lumen rating of the V630 is unavailable in the manual so we are unable to say how bright their projector can actually be. Based on our initial observation, the Vankyo projector does not seem to have a greater Lumen rating compared to the P6X.

The AAXA P6X boasts vibrant colors and crisp details, whereas the Vankyo 630 has washout images and colors in a low-light room. It seems that the Vankyo projector falls short in terms of color quality most likely due to the lower-end Lumen rating it has.

Final Words

The Vankyo V630 costs $249.99 and the AAXA P6X costs $359.99, would you pay $110 more for portability and better image quality? Overall the AAXA P6X seems to be the best bang for your buck projector in terms of overall convenience. With the Vankyo V630 still being a good option, it’s safe to say that paying extra would definitely be better in the long run.

  1. AAXA 4K1 Mini Projector $999.00

Some more information about 4K Mini Projectors: Is LED Projection Taking Over The Projector Market?

  1. Sony MP-CD1 Mobile Projector $1,329.95

I’d say it’s safe to say that most people are very familiar with Sony and their work in the entertainment industry and how well they produce their products. The Sony MP-CD1 Mobile Projector is one of the slimmer-designed mini projectors for your outdoor movie screen. For the design and the portability of this mini projector, it’s definitely on the pricier side. The native resolution is 854 by 480 pixels, a.k.a WVGA, effectively a 16:9 aspect ratio and a common resolution for low-brightness pico projectors. On the plus side, it weighs less than 1 pound, making it possible to take it anywhere you want! Perfect for an outdoor movie screen as an outdoor projector.

New Projector Tablet – Lenovo Yoga Pro 2 Review

Recently, Lenovo released the newest member of the Yoga Tablet line, the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro.  A new type of tablet targeted at professionals on the move that need to be able to set up and give a presentation quickly and effectively.  There are a few major differences with this tablet that make it stand out from the other ones on the market currently.  The first, and one of the main marketing points on the tablet for Lenovo is the integrated Pico Projector, the tablet has a round base where the battery, projector, and power button are located, and this round part also has additional functionality as the stand for the projector when it is in stand up mode.  The tablet also sports a HUGE 13” screen at an awesome resolution for HD viewing, this screen is so big that it almost feels like you’re using a touch screen desktop.  The aluminum body of the tablet only helps to make the product feel solid and well made, however with this comes a lot of additional weight.  All of these features add up to make a solid product that could help most professionals (or even those who just want a sweet tablet) get things done faster and more effectively, so without further ado let’s get onto the review of this unusual tablet.

Size and Usability:

With a screen clocking in at 13.3” no one can call this tablet small, in fact as far as tablets go this thing is a behemoth clad in an aluminum body that brings the weight of the device to a whopping 2 pounds which for a handheld device can start to get heavy after a while.  The huge screen allows for a huge keyboard, which really helps when using the tablet, it’s so big that it almost feels like using a normal keyboard on a desktop or laptop and it’s crisp resolution of 2560 x 1440 allows for a clear image no matter what size image you are viewing.  It’s an IPS display to boot which means it’s got a good response time and good color temperatures, the touch sensing technology is capacitive which means you get a nice smooth glass feel to the screen and that there is a much lower chance of scratching the screen.

The body of the tablet is designed very well, the cylindrical hinge at the bottom of the unit is the heaviest part of the unit and is generally the surface that the tablet will sit on while in use.  The hinge used is made of aluminum and is very rigid to the body of the tablet, this makes it very hard to move but is also a good thing because when the tablet is sitting up straight it allows for easy typing and no movement of the tablet when the screen is touched (a common issue with stand cases for tablets).

lenovo-tablet-yoga-tablet-2-pro-13-inch-android-stand-mode-2

One thing we’d like to point out is that this is no Nexus 7, you aren’t going to be using this with one hand, in fact you’ll probably be cradling it in one arm while using it due to its large size and weight, we found it very uncomfortable to hold in a standing position for more than 5 minutes at a time, at that point we found ourselves opening up the stand and setting this beast down.

The sound is an 8w UBL speaker located on the back of the projector which produces great sound, actually the best we’ve ever heard out of a tablet, for the first time ever bass tones are audible and the treble is clear and crisp.  This may be due to the massive amount of space that Lenovo was allotted to fit a speaker however we were impressed by its quality and volume, it’s definitely something that could produce enough sound for several people to hear while watching a video on the built in projector.  As for the projector, we’re going to be talking about that later in the review for several reasons, mainly though we felt that it just deserved its own section for good and bad reasons.

Projector

Now for the most juicy part of the review, the part that most people interested in the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro came here to read about, and the part that Lenovo probably doesn’t want the most true coverage on; The projector.

lenovo-tablet-yoga-tablet-2-pro-13-inch-android-side-projector-movie-6

It is one of the first mobile products we’ve seen that has a usable built in projector.  With all of the older mobile products with projection there was always the issue of positioning.  How do you use the phone to present and also have the projector in the right position and in focus?  This was especially true because there was just no way that you were fitting a tripod mount on a phone or a tablet.  This is where that sturdy stand on the bottom of the Lenovo tablet comes in.  By using the tablet in stand mode you are able to adjust the horizontal keystone of the projection by adjusting the stand, given that you are using a flat surface to project from this should allow you to get a good usable image out of the tablet, it is also very easy to use while it is in this position as it allows the user to sit and basically use the tablet normally without sacrificing the image quality.

Now for the bad parts, first let’s talk about the brightness.  The projector is dim to say the least, at 50 lumens it creates a dim image even in completely dark conditions, although it does beat the Lumi-tab’s 35 lumen projector, a 50 lumen projector would be barely visible in a lit room.  The focus mechanism on the projector is a small slider on the back of the unit near the lens of the projector, the slider is semi-stiff and hard to do small movements with and thus is hard to get the perfect focus, and we found it easier to physically move the whole tablet back and forth to get the correct focus.

Even when fully focused the projector doesn’t produce the clearest of images which could be due to the fact that when you hold the tablet the lens naturally touches your skin and gets smudges on it, but even when clean viewing text and web pages seemed to have a slight pixilation to the image which made text somewhat hard to read.  When viewing a movie the projector looked just fine, except on dark scenes where the brightness of the projector came into play and it became hard to differentiate objects in the shadows.  Lastly, the projector can only be used while the tablet is in a horizontal position, which means you aren’t going to be holding it while projecting like they showed in the promotional videos for the tablet.  Although we’re sure that most users are going to be using it on a table anyways it should be that big of a deal, but we did feel a bit cheated when we held it up to project onto a wall and the projection was completely sideways.

Projection Comparison

For a comparison, we set the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro up against an AAXA Technologies P3-X Pico Projector to test the brightness, sharpness and ease of use. In this demonstration, we have hooked up the AAXA P3-X to an iPhone 6 using an Apple digital AV adapter and an HDMI to mini HDMI cable. We will post a video later demonstrating the difference between the two, but we did take a couple of images which show a pretty stark difference.

Lenovo (1)

Lenovo (3) Lenovo (4)

 

As you can see, the 70 lumen AAXA Technologies P3-X (left side) outshined the tablet pretty convincingly. Additionally,  the difficulty in focusing the tablet makes a dedicated micro-projector a much better option for  projection needs.

That’s about all we have to say bad about the projector in the in Yoga Tablet Pro 2,  it’s definitely a product that you could use for personal viewing and for a quick set-up for a business presentation, but we wouldn’t recommend it for much else. 

Specs

In this section we’ll go over the direct specs of the projector just so that you have a reference when you’re looking at this tablet vs others.

Processor: Intel® Atom™ Z3745 Processor

RAM: 2GB LPDDR3

Storage: 32GB internal, up to 64GB SD card for additional storage.

Sensors: G-Sensor, e-Compass, Ambient Light, Hall, and Vibration.

Cameras: Rear 8MP F2.2 with Auto focus, Front 1.6 MP HD

Wireless: Wifi 802.11 a/b/g/n MiMo 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz Dual Band, Bluetooth 4.0

Ports: Micro USB, 3.5 Audio Jack, Micro SD Card

Battery: 9600 mAh (up to 15 hours use time)

Screen: 13.3” 2560×1440 IPS display, Capacitive Touch, 10-point multi-touch

Sound: 2x Front Chamber speakers, 1x JBL subwoofer with Dolby audio, Wolfson Master Hi-Fi Codec

OS: Android 4.4 KitKat

Weight: 2.09 lbs

As you can see it’s got pretty average specs as far as high end tablets go, but it’s definitely a lot more powerful than your average sub $200 tablet.

 

Results

In conclusion, the Yoga Tablet Pro 2 is definitely a cool product that deserves its place in Lenovo’s line-up as one of their main tablets, although unique with its projector we honestly just found it to be such a low quality projector that it wasn’t really usable in a professional situation, we’d still recommend that you go the route of just getting a Pico Projector and hooking it up to a cheap tablet or laptop if you’re looking for a portable projection solution. The results will be a lot better and it will still most likely be cheaper than this tablet/projector combo.  But if you’re just looking for a big tablet to maybe replace a laptop or just something to easily set up and project movies for a couple of friends or yourself then this tablet will fit the mold, it’s definitely not something to immediately pass up as a multimedia tablet but may be something to overlook if you’re looking for a projector.

New Review: Brookstone Pocket Projector Pro and AAXA P300!

Scenes from Paul Walker’s The Fast and The Furious projected on a huge wall by the Brookstone Pocket Projector Pro and the AAXA P300!

 

 

Who will be the main course in this years holiday pico/pocket projector review: Brookstone’s Pocket Projector Pro or AAXA’s P300?

Since it’s the holiday season, we’re going to be stuffing our homes with friends and family.  So you’re definitely going to have to keep them entertained with something when they’re all sitting around in their food comas.  Well this year you can prepare for it. The time is right buy some new gadgets and what better thing to get than a mobile projector! This year we’re going to compare projector recipes so you’ll have something to serve as entertainment. So we’re going to compare the Brookstone Pocket Projector Pro ($429) and the AAXA Technologies P300 ($389). There are some good ones out there, but we’re going to compare this new Brookstone pico/pocket projector with something fairly comparable in price, features, and brightness.

 

The Ingredients

The AAXA P300 is battery powered (battery Included) and lasts upwards of 60+ minutes on a single charge. Now the Brookstone Projector has the “optional battery” that will keep it going for 2-hours, which is really good. The down side is that the battery is going to cost you an extra $99 bucks! So the total to make the Brookstone completely portable is around $529…again, a side dish to think about.

While we’re on addition features, both the Brookstone and the AAXA have keystone correction.  The really cool feature of the Brookstone is that is has a USB output to give you the ability to charge other devices on the go, if you buy the external battery with it. The features that the AAXA P300 has that the Brookstone doesn’t is an onboard media player to project video and text files or play your music directly from a its built in MicroSD reader(up to 32GB) or through its full size USB port to read from a USB memory stick.


The Recipe

These projectors are very portable and pack some great features, some more than the other. However, the side dishes of any meal only complement the course, which in this meal review, is the projection quality. The Brookstone Pocket Projector is rated at 200 ANSI lumens and the AAXA P300 comes in at 300 ANSI lumens; both of which have a resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA).  The contrast ratio of the Brookstone is 1000:1, while the AAXA P300 is at 2000:1.

The Main Dish

Now on to the main course of this holiday projector review! Both these projectors are about 4 feet form the wall and are so we can see how well they compare to each other.

You can see that the brightness of both these projectors are very bright! The AAXA P300 does have a more vibrant range of color to its projection quality. Although the brightness of the AAXA is rated at 300 lumens and is a bit brighter, the Brookstone does a a good job itself. The brookstone is rated at 200 lumens but seems to be a bit brighter than that, guessing maybe hitting close to 250 lumens instead. But projected from the same distance you can see that there is a difference.

So putting the whole thing in perspective, the Brookstone Pocket Projector Pro is small in size and very bright for its size, comparing fairly well to the AAXA P300’s 100 lumen advantage. However, things to keep in mind from this is that the price is a little steep and gets really pricey if you want to add the battery to the package.  For the AAXA p300 that is a little bigger in size, but at a reasonable price, you’ll get those few extra features; the battery, onboard media player and USB/MicroSD memory reader ability.

Pico Projectors Make For the Perfect Movie Night

Madagascar!
Madagascar!

Sometimes it’s just not economical to take the kids out to the movie theater. What with popcorn costing $10 and a soda equally as much. A simple movie can cost over $100.

Why not put the projector up in the kids room and have a “sleepover” movie night. Well, without the sleepover maybe. But the kids will love having everyone visit their room to have fun instead of being in the living room like every other night. Spend that extra money on something good for yourself or your family (maybe a retirement fund?). You’ll thank us!

New Video Comparing P1 to P2 Pico Projector

As every company under the sun continues to come out with their latest version of pico projector we had been hunting for a live demo to show us the real quality differences. Let’s face it, most of the models put out in the last couple years haven’t been up to par with expectations. That trend is beginning to change. The new line’s from companies like Aaxa Tech, 3M, and Optoma seem to work well as long as you aren’t in a super bright environment. Check out this video to get a real look at how fast the quality of these projectors is moving.
