Torpedo Entertainment Digital Projector

Rating: 2 out of 5
  • Currently 2.0/5.0

I read the critiques and believed, even if the picture high quality was poor, I believed I could use it for energy points. I mean, how poor could it be? But the poor factor for powerpoints is that in an workplace atmosphere, you do not have the lights completely off. This factor was barely visible in any type of lighting. The only method to make what you see on the screen visible was to be in total darkness.

The picture high quality was poor, .but I expected that from the critiques. I wasn't truly thinking I could get something HD out of it. My primary disapointment was the reality that it needed a pitch black room to determine the screen nicely sufficient to read something.

I was shocked it gave off sound from the input. as well as though you cannot use it for a PC connection, it is simple to discover adaptors on-line to create it work for inexpensive.

I bought the projector simply because it was extremely inexpensive. I didn't anticipate extraordinary performance. I wanted some thing to watch in my basement although I was running or exercising. I generally invest 1-2 hours a week exercising. My objective was to watch Cable with least investment understanding nicely that I didn't require an extraordinary high quality.

My setup:

I bought a Y splitter at Radioshack and split the local cable wire. 1 connection was plugged to my living room TV although the other was hooked it to my old VCR. The audio/video output from my VCR was hooked towards the projector. I setup the projector almost 6 ft from the white wall and viewing distance was ~ 15 ft.

Essentially I'm pleased. I spent much less than 100 bucks to have a operating program. I didn't require extra speakers as the speakers within the projector had been loud sufficient. The image high quality is acceptable (supplied the room is completely dark). 15 ft will be the optimal distance. The closer you go, the grainier the picture becomes.
