vito, 25 Jun 2016and the diode in Sony must be replaced at least at 200 hours,typically allready after only 1000 hrAccording to this research most people watching tv for about 3 hours everyday http://www.bls.gov/news.release/atus.nr0.htm
So that's mean i just need to replace the laser diode for about every 2 years if i use it as a tv i don't i'll have problem with that.
Some people prefer quantity but for me quality and usefull features is the most important things.
vito, 25 Jun 2016But it's bigger and 50% more expensive.And only till 120 " tooDude the Sony projector is smaller and lighter than Asus.
Sony (77 x 13 x 149.5 mm) vs Asus (83 x 29 x 110mm)
Sony (210 g) vs Asus (307g)
I'm okay paying 50% extra money and get shorter battery life for better quality and extra features because i can use portable charger to make it last longer.
But no matter what you do you can't get the same quality and features from Asus projector.
GorreV, 25 Jun 2016The only thing that is better is the resolution (720p HD against 480p). But it is only 37 Lume... moreIf you think that the only thing better is just resolution you must be blind or something i'll tell you why Sony is better.
Lets start with resolution for projector higher resolution is important because you'll get significant amount of sharpness especialy if you want to strecth the image up to 120 inch. Sony (1920x720) vs Asus (854 x 480) that's a huge different in sharpness.
Sony (80,000 : 1) vs Asus (3500:1) I'm not an expert for this one but as far as my eyes can see a display with higher contras ratio usually will provide better overall image quality even in high ambient light just look at GSMArena Sunlight legibility chart!
Sony Laser diode advantages clearer, shorter throw, focus free even able to focus on uneven or curved surfaces, Speckle reduction and Distortion correction. You can't get that with conventional DLP design on Asus projector.
There is also WiFi for wireless connection so i think the price is still fair since you get better quality and usefull extra features.

At that resolution anything over 7" is going to show eye-bleed-inducing pixelation. Who in their right mind would pay for something like this?
Dovice, 24 Jun 2016Nice design but having owned and then got rid of their brighter (>600 lumen) B1M, this thin... moreMy sister once asked me to hunt for portable projector and i found out that there are many cheap gadget projector in same size of this asus projector but only have like 50 lumens.
RollerCoaster1, 24 Jun 2016150 lumen?! I would love to see a real world test...with that small lumen grade it will probab... moreObviously it won't work wonders, but if my Galaxy Beam "15 lumens" can do ok is some moderate light settings...some and depending on the content of course. Then 150 can definitely top it abs would at least be visible is slightly brighter settings
For $250 I would be getting something much brighter than 150 lumens.
is it possible to khow if this beamer can be use with a mac?
Thank's a lot!!!!!
150 lumen?! I would love to see a real world test...with that small lumen grade it will probably only work in a really dark room.
At 150 Lumens max, this is more of a toy.
If anyone is looking for a practical projector, try ZTE Spro Plus, due to out in the next few months.
Nice design but having owned and then got rid of their brighter (>600 lumen) B1M, this thing is even more of a toy, and that is why you never see these things in use. Speaking as someone who does presentations a lot, I want at least 300 lumen, a laser projector for focus free operation (requires less lumens too) and most important, true 1080P (1920 x 1080) pixel resolution, else what is the point of owning computers that output high res video!!
I have a similar product (from some other brand of course), just need some programming again but just after you debunk the mostly of ^alpha^ LOGO in LM's comment.
