Our Final Take-The Review

The picture quality is awesome in this price range. The features that this projector is offering are very good and are worth the price. It can be stated as the value for money product. The resolution is great and the adjustment buttons are easy to use. The only thing that must be taken care off is it gets heated up quickly. So regular intervals are important.
