I'm calling this an excellent device because it does the job for which it is designed. The MPro120 is a little larger than a pack of cigarettes in some dimensions, and packs a lot into that small package.
At first the 12 lumens seem like too little, but it's quite adequate for impromptu slide shows and powerpoint presentations for 3 to about 10 people, provided the room is dimmed. I showed off my photography to my mom and some friends, and all of them want one of these little gems. The teaching powerpoint I showed at work had a few people intrigued with the projector as well.
It would be nice to have a better system to align the projector with the screen surface. There is no keystone adjustment, so it is possible the projector interferes with viewing from behind. Using a camera tripod with pan and tilt adjustments is my solution to this problem.
Another thing that might be improvable is the focus. The wheel for focus is on the front of the projector next to the lens aperture. Since it is a mechanical system, there's the possibility of wrecking the alignment to the screen while doing a fine focus. Once set, however, the quality of image reproduction is excellent in my experience.
The projector comes with a 'wall wart' with interchangeable plug-in, making this an internationally useable device. The prongs change very easily.
I used the small tripod that came with my projector, and that works if one has a shelf or a table in a good position. The main problem is that the assembly is very light, so it is easily bumped out of position. That's why I use a heavy tripod.
There are two cables that are included. A standard AV cable to connect to a TV, VCR, or the like, and a 15 pin VGA cable to connect to the analog video output of a computer. Both are easy to use. My laptop needed only a minor bit of system set-up to project a clone of the laptop screen.
The sound is a lot better than I expected. With sound, as it is with the picture, it's for small groups. You won't be able to fill an auditorium with a half watt of speaker sound. For the small groups, the sound works. For more sound a pair of amplified speakers will do better.
The quick-start info is about all one really needs, and the regular manual contains very little in addition.
All in all, I really like this little projector. I can set up quickly for small groups. The battery life is good. It is bright enough to do the job for which the projector was purchased,
If you are looking to show movies to large audiences, you'll need a bigger device. If you are entertaining your family or in-service teaching some co-workers, this might be a good choice. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.
such a great gadget, this will be used to teach in a classroom, useful even to watch a movie laying back in bed, great resolution, long lasting battery, very portable and easy to use anywhere
The super small 3M projector does a great job for presentations in the conference rooms that we use. The battery life is good too.
Great projector for the price! Great quality, but needs a fairly dim to dark room, but it's to be expected for watching movies anyways. The volume could be louder, but you can use speakers to attach. Otherwise a fun and good quality product!
WORKS AMAZING!would reccomend to everyone who needs something light weight and portable great for movies and presentations
