Native 1080P WiFi Bluetooth Projector, VISOUD 9500L with 120'' Screen Portable Outdoor Movie Projector, Zoom & 300'', Home Theater Video Projector Compatible w/ HDMI, VGA, TF, USB, AV, TV Stick, PS4

Visoud Native 1080P Bluetooth WiFi Projector

by Visoud

Native 1080P HD & Unique Big Lens Design- Adopt unique large lens design, the latest Bluetooth projector provides 9500 lumen&12000:1 high contrast&16:9/4:3 aspect ratio, with a native resolution of 1920*1080. LCD color calibration and adjustment technology can restore more complex color details. All these functions and features make the VISOUD projector image sharper and more detailed than other portable projectors, which provides the ultimate outdoor home theater movie viewing fun for you.

The VISOUD 9500L is a budget-priced projector that excels at turning a small room into a big home theater. It delivers a bright and sharp image, and it's easy to set up and use. The VISOUD 9500L's wireless capabilities are particularly useful, as it allows you to project images from any source device, including smartphones and tablets. The projector's audio is also quite good, with a decent mix of bass and treble. However, like most projectors, the VISOUD 9500L's sound tends to sound a little tinny when you put it near a large, hard surface. The projector's image is slightly larger than most, so it's best used in a room less than 150 square feet. The projector is loud enough to fill a large room, and it produces a great image in dark rooms. The projector's wireless capabilities make it particularly useful for widescreen movies, since most streaming apps don't support 16:9 aspect ratios. However, the projector's remote control is a bit clunky, and the projector doesn't come with any extras, such as batteries or a power cord.

Make a convenient Video projector, TV projector, Laptop projector, or Gaming projector!

The SMONET Mini Projector is an exceptional choice for anyone looking for an inexpensive, easy-to-use, outdoor movie projector. It offers a bright, high-resolution image (up to 1920 x 1080), an impressively long lamp life, and a straightforward controls panel. Our evaluation of outdoor movie projectors was focused primarily on brightness, and the SMONET Mini Projector far exceeds the competition. It outdid the 12,500 lumens of the Sony VPL-VZ1000ES, which costs twice as much, and the 7500 lumens of the Optoma GT1080, which costs 10 times as much. The SMONET Mini Projector's good color reproduction, sharp images, and high-resolution display make it a good pick for gaming, movies, and slide shows. It also provides good brightness and image clarity in bright outdoor environments. The SMONET Mini Projector's image quality also suffers in bright indoor environments, and it can't display as tall as an image as the Optoma GT1080 can. The SMONET Mini Projector also lacks a zoom function, but it's otherwise an excellent projector for outdoor movie viewing.

We experienced no issues operating the screen, and the motor worked smoothly, without any lag or delays. The screen offers a wide viewing area, up to 160 degrees, and is very sensitive to glare, so you'll likely want to hang it in a room that's well-lighted. The resolution is 4K resolution, which is the same as 2K resolution, so you'll get a crisp picture. The screen is also great for gaming, as it supports Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) resolution. The matte coating on the screen resists glare, so you'll clearly see the image on the screen, even in bright light. The 4-foot extension chain that hangs the screen from the ceiling is a nice touch, as it allows you to place the screen high on the wall, so it's out of the reach of young children. The VIVOHOME 100-inch electric projection screen is a good choice for anyone who wants a theater-like experience but prefers not to invest in a full-fledged home theater system.
