returned after 3 weeks: noise, light leakage and focus issue
March 4, 2019
After comparing several projectors before purchase, I decided to go with vankyo v600. the first attractive thing is it's native support for 1080P and the price point is about right. Some other cheaper projector also support 1080p, but that actually mean it can take 1080p signal, but it will convert to 720p.
And V600 allows multiple types of inputs and outputs (HDMI, USB, and SD slot). there're 2 usb ports, easy to operate, once I got the projector I set it up in my basement in a few minutes and played my daughter favorite movie, the color is good, she is so happy. The projector comes with HDMI cable, remote control, audio cable. And the embedded speaker sounder quality is good for casual watching, it's if you want home theater sound, you can hook with external speakers. One thing I think vankyo can improve is the sound of the fan. when it's playing content without any sound, the fan noise is loud. when you play a movie, the noise is not that noticeable.
Update: After 3 weeks, returned the projector. First, the noise was getting louder and hard to ignore even with high volume; Second, when display dark color, light leakage around the border is very obvious; And third, focus problem, try with the display with enough text: when you adjust the focus to make the middle or right side clear, the text on the left will be blurry; then change focus to make the left side clear, the right side is blurry and out of focus. And don't count on seller to get back to you, sent an email and not single word reply after a week. Amazon service is excellent as usual.
