i read some reviews for this on other websites saying it wasent worth the price. I have to say otherwise. The sound quality is amazing, and the volume is loud. The resolution isn't as good as the more expensive projectors, but for it being a "toy" very good video. The 60'' screen, is huge for something like this. Me and three friends played xbox live on this, outside, n the side of a house, and with four people on one screen, you can still see clearly without getting close to the screen. With a five foot square screen, each person getting a 2.5 ft by 2.5 ft square, each persons screen is almost as big as my previous tv. I would highly recomend this product.
We bought this to show a movie outside for a "tween" Halloween party. The picture was great on the side of the side. The sound wasn't too good unless you were sitting beside the projector, but with a surround sound it was an amazing movie night!!!
This is my opinion solely. I haven't had anyone elses input or used others as test subjects.
~No kids have used it, their reaction would change my perception no doubt.
~Also, older people like my dad with a hard time seeing the dubious typical little screen tv's in the bedroom might really enjoy this thing? Which would change my outlook on this little box.
I think those would be the target customers. I find the shortcomings too unpleasant. I don't much care for it myself and may very well return it. With that said here is how my review goes:
1.Good for going to bed. Watching the projector in the dark won't hurt your eyes.
2.If you have trouble seeing a small picture and need a big picture for some serious cheap money then this may help.(if it's bright enough)
3.It does make a 60" visible presentation(in the dark only).
4.It's small, lightweight, very portable and takes up no space hardly.
5.Picture quality is good enough for the price of $80. I'd compare it to a 1980's big screen tv.
6.I like being able to chuck the picture up on the ceiling so I don't break my kneck laying down to see it. Pretty cool in fact.
7.Somewhat of a very cheap theater frill to me. The Bad:
1.Must be completely dark or you can't make out any images from the projector.
2.The picture is a little fuzzy/blurry and there still isn't much contrast/brightness.
3.It's a dark picture even in a dark room. The color has some green blob issues also.
4.The picture quality doesn't exceed $80.
5.I hate trying to locate and use a control/remote in the dark. If you CAN find what you want to watch and LEAVE IT ALONE then you're fine, I guess.
5.The fact it has to be pitch dark is very INCONVENIENT and is the deal breaking deciding factor in my opinion.
6.Playing games, in the dark? Is that possible for some people? Not for me. I need to be able to see the buttons time to time. I can't type in the dark, same analogy, I can't play games in the dark.
I think the eyeclops mini projector is great for $80 dollers I really like it its small it works with kids I think I should buy another one the eyeclops mini projector its just great
I just recently purchased this item. Tried it out and was amazed. The sound was more than loud enough, picture quality was good, not tv screen perfect, but definantly made it feel like a "drive in" movie. The fact that it connects so easy to multiple devices makes it very versitile. The only down side if that is yes, it does need to be very dark for best picture resolution. For what I wanted this for it has exceeded my expections.
The projected image is so dark you can not see most images. We tried it in a completly dark room, then decided it most be the wall we were projecting the image on to. We hung a white screen in my daughter's room and there was no improvement. I bought a ZoomBox years ago and was so impressed; I had no doubts this would be a great purchase. What a disappointment! I am taking it back to the store this weekend. Until this is cheaper than a pair of socks don't buy it.
This little gadget is easy to hook up and play. It is hard to see unless the location is very dark. This is not a top of the line projector so don't expect great sound/picture quality.
We bought this for our 11 yr to play his ps2 on. The sound is great for such a small little thing but the video is pretty bad. Any of the games that he has to read words to play he can not play on this. The words are blurry and if you make the picture big the whole thing is blurry. This is going right back to the store.
My 11 year old is playing with right now! So the exictment is there, but quality is not. He has hooked up to PS2 playing James Bond. The sound is very good since he's right next to it, and its quite in the house. But I would really question the sound out doors. And visually is not as good as fortold on the packaging/website. Buy this on sale only, and DO NOT expect alot from it!
This is an excellent product!! We were looking for home entertainment due to disabled child that doesn't travel well but has friends and needed things to do with them!!! Bought this! Spent $40.00 more for a 4x8 board painted it high gloss white and viola' we have a screen. Worked fine but hubby had to make it more better Ha Ha! Hung it on side of shed (also from Walmart) and we now have an excellent outdoor walk-in! Used our portable dvd player and computer speakers (all from walmart) and we can now sit 8 feet away and hear and see everything GREAT!! THANK YOU WALMART! Total cost was less than 3 trips for family of 6 to the local walk-in theatre!!!!!!
This projector worked great for 1 week and then just stopped working!
This was a great present for our 12-year-old son.
Not bright enough. not suitable for much except to let the kids play with it
I just recently bought the Eyeclops mini projector withhigh expectations. After the intitial setup I was shocked to find that the picture quality is very lacking even at $70. The blues seem to damper into the whites on the screen. I tried watching radom tv shows and was not pleased at all with the picture I saw. I tried to focus to no avail even after using a solid white screen to view on. One might and I stress might enjoy watching a movie on it if they don't mind the color blandness as it reminds me of an old black and white tv set from 20 years ago. I wouldn't honestly recomend this purchase and regret ordering it myself.
I had high hopes for this little projector. I was going to use it for a miniature model demo-project, so it only had to project a tiny, 2-inch wide image. The specs rate 2 inches as the smallest, focusable, image (up to 60 inches), so that would have been perfect. But it doesn't focus at any distance. None. I had to return it the next morning. Although it has the promise of a great item, especially for kids, this product should not have been manufactured with the poor performance it offers. If they had simply used better glass in the lens, maybe spent $10 more on better optics, the thing could actually focus. Then it would be usable. If a projector that doesn't focus appeals to you, then by all means, help yourself. Walmart was very gracious about the return. P.S. I'm an audio-visual technician, and I own, and work with industrial-quality projectors every day. I guess there's a reason that pro-projectors cost at least $1000.
should have all cables with product, at this price.
Does not come with a component connection cord. It said we can connect it to a video game, but can't connect to DSI. Got for christmas and still can't find the right cord. And the bulb doesn't turn on. Not happy with product.
Bought for grandson, all grandkids love it. They got a special kick out of being able to project video games on the ceiling while lying down to play. Works great with TV also. Very portable. Worth every penny.
I bought this for my kids for christmas and it has been so much fun for them to use. Was easy to set up and use.
The instructions provided are not clear, but once you figure out how to work the projector, it is AWESOME!! We were able to hook up the projector to a DVD player, cable box, satellite receiver, and a plug and play game. Results were amazing, especially given the size and price of the product. Highly recommend this product!
