EXCELLENT SERVICE

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
I bought this projector to use outside on clear nights to break up the usual "watch the TV" every night. I removed it from the box and laid out everything to ensure everything was there and it was. It comes with an HDMI cable, a 3 way Audio/Video cable and power cable. It has a remote that will control the projector only, a rubber lens cap and of course a power cable. It has a speaker that is made into the projector and is quiet sufficient for indoor use but it can be hooked up to external speakers using the ear phones connection on the side. It also comes with a fabric case that is well made with 2 separate compartments in the base and another folder like pocket on the lid. The left compartment in the base is for the projector itself it has to straps that connect with Velcro to hold the project firmly in place when being carried. The 2nd is a little smaller and it is to hold all of the cables and remote. It does not have any straps to hold any of the cables in place however with everything placed in the compartment that comes with the projector, it fits snugly and doesn't need anything to hold it all in the compartment. The pocket in the lid is mainly for the manual and quick start guide. You could put the remote or a cable or 2 in it but there is no way to ensure it would not slide over on top of the projector. I don't think a cable would damage the projectors case but the remote could damage the lens housing, that just my opinion. It does not come with a wifi dongal. that you will have to buy separately. The quick start guide is real easy to understand as well as the user manual. My 7 year old nephew used the quick start to connect the cables and start a movie playing that's how easy it is to use. It has a housing made of plastic and 2 ways to adjust the picture. The first is for adjusting the clarity of the picture and the second is to adjust what I would call the "tilt" of the picture vertically on the screen. It was actually setup for a perfect picture from the factory if you place the projector about 6 to 7 feet from the screen. It can be placed closer for a smaller screen size or a bit further away for a much larger screen, however the further back you go over 10 feet the harder I think it is to bring the picture into focus. it isn't so bad that it can't be done but the picture is great at 6 to 7 feet and quiet large at that distance so I didn't place it any further than 10 feet away and the picture was still great. I have hooked up my DVD player, PS4, Xbox One, Wii, Dish Network Satellite DVR, my Samsung S8+ phone and the Amazon Fire Tablet up to it and all had great picture to them. I loved playing all of my game consoles using the projector. There was no lag time and I could see EVERYTHING much faster than on a 42 inch TV screen. It is a huge step up if you are stuck with a small TV. The picture is clear and looks great It is very close to the same picture quality like you would see at the movies but it is not exact. It is a very very small difference that most people will not even notice, that said if you watch movies a lot on the big screen theaters you will notice the subtle difference. This , in my opinion, comes from screen quality and of course the theaters are using a much much better projector but if your expecting for it to look exactly the same as the screen in the theaters then you probably will not be happy with this or any other projector that I know of without counting a "movie theater" of course. lol Every single device I connected with exception to the Wifi dongal connection were extremely easy to connect and took only a few minutes to actually watching a movie. The Wifi dongal itself that I purchased was a little difficult to get to work however that is not due to this projector at all. After I got it to connect it was the same as the rest an excellent color picture that made me feel like i was at the movies in my own back yard.

JUNK PROJECTORS / NO REPAIR OR REFUND

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Ordered a projector that had "NEW BULB" in the description. Received the projector and found a note that the bulb had 1,032 hours on it. I was a little forgiving so I plugged it in. The first time I used it was for 20 minutes. I noticed that the the projector had some jitters and some horizontal lines on the screen. After the bulb warmed up, it went away. I thought everything was fine. Then I went to use it again after 30 days and the projector was noticeably worse with jitters, horizontal lines and finally after an hour the screen went green. I contacted the Voltarea.com the company that sold me the projector. I gave them several opportunities to do the right thing by refunding my money (sighting a JUNK PROJECTOR) upon returning the item but they chose to be greedy instead by pocketing the money and basically saying too bad so sad. They love their 30 day guarantee because once they sell you the product and you haven't fully used they can rip you off.
