Pleasantly surprised about just how good this projector is. Clarity of picture and sound fantastic. Fan noise not really noticeable. Although the onboard Android TV operating system is good, I use with an Apple TV and 2 HomePods and it all works seamlessly to give me an instant home theatre experience . Being self contained it can be easily moved to another location for instant theatre. Really impressed.
Zero complaints about the hardware, Fantastic kit, feel that the android version could be brought up to date and also feel it's a bit too restricted with apks I've tried to sideload etc. Remote could also do with a source button, and I'd like access to the system settings over other apps. E.g I'd like to tweak colour settings whilst watching sport/movies to help me fine tune
Thought long and hard about this little beauty.
I invited my friend round to watch the lions on the c.max . fantastic great for sport and films . PlayStation I don’t have . But shore it’s just as good . I’m very happy useing on a gray wall . But will be getting a screen . But not totally use to the settings
And I’m not thinking sound is all that . But I can blue tooth it to my Bose sound bar . But I’ll fiddle with the sound . But overall I’m pleased . Will hand down in my will. Go for it .
WOW!! What a great item. Can't believe how good it is! Like being in your own Cinema. However, there are some draw backs Netflix, all4 and Iplayer won't work straight out of the box. You'll need to have a look on YouTube for instuctions. But this is a very minor demerit on what is a fantastic item!
The picture is nice and sharp with 4K content and the onboard sound is good - but is easily trumped by an external soundbar - I have connected to a Sonos Beam via HDMI Arc and a 10m cable.
The native apps are ok but I found them a bit unstable. I prefer to use a Fire TV 4K stick - this seems to reduce the fan noise a bit.
I find the contrast and black levels underwhelming - but my main TV is an OLED so I suppose my expectations should be lowered in this area. Autofocus works quite well - it does seem to drift out of focus as it warms up from a cold start - understandable I guess.
In general, I'm pleased that I bought this - albeit at a lower price on Prime Day. If I had paid full price, I would probably reduce my rating by 1 star
