This projector can be set to replay all of your content at a screen distance that can vary between 2.62 to 6,56 ft. (80-200 cm), which means you actually get a very flexible placement for such a small unit.
While the projector’s base resolution is exactly 960 x 540 pixels, this model actual supports resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 pixels. This means that you’re ensured to get rich, lifelike hues and precise detail for all of content, and that goes especially for HD movies and HD film recordings that you might’ve done with higher-quality recording cameras (4K recording of radical sports, 4K Nature Filming and Documenting, etc.).
Users are offered a 16:9 Aspect Ratio, a 1,2:1 Throw Ratio and a 500:1 Contrast Ratio. Thanks to the projector’s 1,2:1 Throw Ratio this model can accurately reproduce any wide images in their correct proportions. At the same time, the projector’s featured 500:1 Contrast Ratio allows users to always get a multitude of shades between black and white, which ultimately ensures that you’re always offered a rich color saturation for whatever content you’re projecting or mirroring.

Keep in mind that even if you use this projector on an average of 4 hours per day, it will take you around 20 years of usage to actually end the unit’s lifespan. This basically means that you’ll most likely never have to replace its internal LED lamp.
In addition, the projector’s power consumption is far lower than a regular lamp based projector, and that makes this projector an eco friendly device that can not only bring you a bigger screen display than most other lamp based projectors out there, but also a much more immersive experience at a very-low cost.

Between it’s USB and mini HDMI ports users can also find a 3.5 mm Audio Jack / Auxiliary Port that can be used to connect any headphones or external powered speakers to ultimately add a wider sound experience to the content you’ll be displaying with the projector.
