TEC.BEAN Portable Multimedia Mini LED Projector

Available for sale on Amazon at:

This projector is a compact, affordable projector with many useful features and inputs for a projector in this price range. I won't go over the specs, because I will post a picture of those. You can also see the specs in the product listing. Basically, you have all the functionality of more expensive projectors, but without HD video, bluetooth, a WiFi connection and things of that nature.

The setup on this is fairly straight forward. If you want to use this as a video projector, you just hook up the HDMI cable to your computer, laptop or whatever else you'd like to use. If you want to use it for pictures, you can insert a USB flash drive or an SD card with your pictures. The recommended projection size (or screen size if comparing to a television) is 20-80 inches. I used it up to 84" and the picture was still very good. For reference, an 84" picture is roughly 9 ft away from the screen. At 7', the projection is 57". The projector focuses at the different distances by turning the projector lens in front. It telescopes in and out. It's easy and simple to do. You can mount this projector on a ceiling, a wall, the floor, or place it on a table.

The sound on this projector is adequate to fairly good for something so small. If you want cinema quality sound, you will probably want to hook up some speakers. That's probably true of any projector, however. The SD card is easy to use. You put it in and you can choose that input to play the pictures in a slideshow. You can do the same with the USB outlet. I didn't try the audio/visual outlet. The HDMI outlet is useful for any number of purposes. You can hook up a cable box, computer, laptop, etc. You can play videos, a slideshow, whatever the projector is connected to essentially. The projector has a kick stand. I prefer to legs in the front that telescope but it's an easy fix. If you put the projector on the floor or the ceiling, there is likely going to be some tilt. There is a button so that you can tilt the image so it's "squared-up" or not distorted.

They say a picture is worth a 1,000 words. I put together a video, so maybe that's worth more. At any rate, it should give you an idea of the product you are reading about. I really like this projector. The native resolution is not high definition, but it still has a good picture. You'll have to spend much more for HD capability, unfortunately. It's imperative with these projectors that the room be dark, or you won't get the colors and brightness you want from any projector. Overall, this is a good product without all the frills (wireless, Bluetooth, etc.) at a good price.
