Pretty Good Reviews and looks like woot is discounted quite a bit.

Specs say 20 lumens ... so I take it the only time it's viewable is in complete darkness?

Trusted Reviews gave it a 8/10 and recommended product badge.

At this price I'd love to buy one but just can't think of enough situations where I would actually use it.

I have to say, I'm surprised how well it projects in moderately dim light.

In the write up,
"what's almost is bad is..." should be "as" not "is".

Also,
"I want to be, like, "ugh, keep it." has an unnecessary comma after be. That is unless you're going for 13 year old girl grammar and then, like, just keep it or something, like, whatever.

What's that Woot?
Oh, you're welcome. No really, any time at all.

Woot won't let me have a cool signature

I have a video camera with a built in projector that's 15 lumens, so I have a pretty decent benchmark to weigh 20 against. When you consider that that's
about 1% of a home projector
(often ~2,000 lumens), the miracle is
that you can get a usable image at all!
But heck, I prefer the lights low-to-off
even with a powerful projector. Anyway,
if 15 lumens can make for decent Yellowstone viewing,
I've no doubt 20 can too.

Thank you. You can be our honorary editor for the day. This comes with an invisible badge that you would be proud to wear... if you could see it.

Note: this won't be much use to project stuff from your computer, tablet, smartphone, unless you can output onto a four-pole 1/8" (3.5mm) Stereo Mini for (Composite Video / Stereo Audio) That's not a typical output for computers. It's a bit more common for things like cameras.

It appears to have an hdmi output jack, but I don't believe it can be used to feed a signal *in* to be projected.

edit: confirmed w/ their user manual. Input is solely through the AV input jack. You can transfer a PPT file, and apparently it does appear to know how to display that (though it doesn't tell you what version it's compliant with).

I have a few questions about the projector.

1) Can it charge while projecting? Aka it is able to charge while still being on

2) Can it project things from my laptop if I hook it up to the HDMI cable?

3)ALSO, can I hook a Wii to it, this is very important for SSBB sessions

Thanks for being Honest and Forthcoming about it. I was just going to scream massive cover-up, because there was no mention of this! Hey maybe you should go work for the Obama Administration. Yup that's the ticket.......

Been interested in a pico projector for a while now and for $79, seems cheap enough to give it a shot. I realize that at 20 lumens, it's not going to be the best projector in it's class, but the price is right.

It will NOT charge while projecting. 4 hours to charge with power off when connected via AC adapter, 7 hours to charge via USB.

The manual states it's an HDMI-out port, not an input.

You can if you use the RCA connectors.

Here's what 3m lists as optional accessories for it...

Oh woot, you evil temptress. I have an Optoma PK120 DLP, 18 Lumen Pico Projector and it works really well in a dark room. It works ok in a lightly lit room. I use it nightly to watch mind numbing sports until I drift off to sleep.

I would like to give as a gift. Does this come in retail packaging.
Woot, Why dont you put that on your items for sale.

You say new, but that does not mean retail packaging. I learned that from experience.


[MOD: Our buyer says it's in the retail package and it's so pretty, you won't even need to wrap it. ]

Let's say you were on a ship with plans to a massive military installation, you could build this into a robot and send the map and a message to Obi Wan Kenobi.

According to the manual, the unit will project and can record while the external power is plugged in, even if the battery is low. I did not see anywhere in the manual state that it would not charge while using, but it definitely can continue to be used while plugged in.

I don't take back my recommendation for a Quality Post, however!

The manual says "when the battery icon indicates low battery, you may continue using the Camcorder Projector without interruption by plugging the AC power adapter." So while the manual does say that it won't charge while it's powered on and plugged in, it will apparently still be usable.

Dumb question, will this project a power point display? And any opinions about it working outside under a tent? I have a presentation to give on farming methods and this would be useful.

Since I am not taking any trips on the space shuttle, to film and show, I can not really think of what I would use this for.
When the pictures are saved, how is the quality? I do need a camera right now that is better than my phone, but not sure if this is the right one.
