Top critical review
I can only assume the other reviews are paid for.

I got the projector yesterday and after the raving reviews, I was quite positive, despite the low cost. My suspicion is now that the reviews are in fact paid for. After a quick online search, there are indeed services offing this, even as a verified purchase. A quick look at the reviewer's profile shows that most of them have rated every single item they have ever bought with 5 stars and a raving review. I'm surprised Amazon doesn't have a measure in place to prevent that, given how much trust people put in the review secion.
I only watch 2-3 movies (and no TV) a month, so this was my attempt at completely replacing my TV with a projector that could be put away when not in use.
The build quality is decent and the unit is quite small, with a single screw in the front centre to adjust the height. The included cables are about 1m, which is too short as most of the time you'd have a projector at that height anyway.
After turning it on, I instantly noticed the loud fan noise. It's loud enough to not be something that you can ignore since it kinda has a mechanical sound to it. Think of a loud PC or laptop fan and throw some rattling into it.
The built-in automatic tilt correction works well and can be adjusted with a manual handle. The image itself, however, is underwhelming. As I mentioned, I didn't have a lot of expectations given the price, but all the colours were very washed out and for movies in a dark setting, I pretty much just had a gray image with very low contrast. This was all performed in a completely dark room.
This is an ok projector if you really just need to project something, where the quality doesn't matter. If you want to watch the occasional movie
