Brookstone HDMI Pocket Projector Review
iPad – however the limits of your HDMI-connected greatness are as much as you!
In our hands-on demo here you will discover that we have an Apple Digital AV Adapter working with the HDMI input at the device – this adapter is sold separately, and also you should note that you will need it to work with the iPhone and the iPad. It is a similar situation to most other smart devices as it’s rare that you’re going to find one who outputs on to full-sized HDMI. Needless to say there’s always the Motorola lineup of Android smartphones, for probably the most part – ease in conversions via built-in HDMI right out of the box! You get a three foot HDMI cable, a micro-HDMI adapter, and a mini-HDMI adapter included within the package.
The Brookstone HDMI Pocket Projector encompasses a 3800mAh battery that’s both rechargeable and is ready to act as an output battery to your mobile devices in the course of the projector’s full-sized USB port. Which means if you have a smartphone that you are using to output to HDMI and you’re short of some extra power for the telephone itself, you’ve only to plug into the projector together with your standard USB cord to the telephone. Without a doubt which means a miles quicker drain at the battery that’s already working quite hard in case you are projecting together, but there’s always the danger of emergency – and also you won’t find this selection on one whole heck of various similar devices either, i will let you know that.
You’ve got dual built-in speakers which are quite generous, made for a small space and loud enough for a crowd of a couple of people. You have an audio out port though for added speaker action if the ordinary inbuilt speakers aren’t enough for you. The point of interest of your picture is finished with an easy adjuster up near front lens, the projection shining bright and as much as 1080p resolution in a 60-inch image for your wall.
And it’s indeed quite bright and sharp – amongst the greatest we have seen. The mega-bright LED lamp projects at what Brookstone notes is 85 lumens “for as much as 2 hours on a single charge.” We’ve also found this claim to be quite accurate – with a whole charge, we’ve been ready to watch full-length movies unplugged with no problem.
The whole device measures in at 3.9 w x 3.8 d x 0.89 inch h, and weighs in at half a pound – it’s sufficiently small to slot in your pocket and light-weight enough to neglect. The cords could be the only hassle you will have to consider when thinking for your next anywhere-use projector experience. Or even those aren’t going to be a major deal if you have got an easy converter for HDMI – minimalize!
This device will cost you $299.99 USD straight from Brookstone right this minute, and they have got their free shipping online deal going now for all devices over $99 – otherwise you can grab it out of your local Brookstone store too, right in hand. With enhanced DLP technology from Texas Instruments bringing the brightness and sharpness to this beast up front, you will have the complete big-time light-blasting world at your fingertips right out of the box.
