Some words from the customer:
“As far as the picture quality, I have this up against my normal white wall and there is no direct ambient light but light comes through the window and I have to say, the picture is pretty good. Again, I have some natural light coming in through my window and I can still definitely see the picture. When I turn off the light, it’s even better. I want to see what it looks like in complete darkness and I’ll update as I go along.”
“After comparing this to the Philips Ultra Short Throw LED projector, I decided to order this one, and I’ve been satisfied with it, but there are some caveats that you should consider before buying any Ultra Short Throw projector. (I decided against the Philips model even though it came with better speakers, because the Philips Ultra Short Throw projector is reputed to have unacceptably low picture quality.)”
Overall, or quite satisfactory, after all, to solve the uncomfortable problem of the people Eyes to watch TV, there is a big picture, the parameters are the best at this price. It is still relatively less fo the ultra short throw home projector, perhaps a few years will emerge more products, now it is the best!
