How good is the quality for consoles?
We have the XPE600. We hooked it up to the PS4 at the weekend. It's absolutely fine for FIFA, even if not pitch black. For COD though, some of the boys were complaining that they couldn't see the edges very clearly and I kind of agree with them. There's a fair bit of graphical text floating around the screen on games like COD and it's not always easy to read unless it's near the middle. I'm being picky here, as they carried on playing 4 player COD for a good while. Sports and movies are pretty much perfect. It's a fantastic cinema screen. Definitely need to rig up a couple of speakers from the unit though. The biggest obstacle is definitely keeping out the natural light.
Do I need a separate adapter for iphone?
Yes, you will need a MHL cable or a wifi display dongle. A MHL cable is much cheaper, it can connect iPhone with this projector, you may purchase one on Amazon. If you've got a wifi display dongle, you can connect the projector with not only iPhone but also iPad.
How about the noise?
You don't notice it at all watching films etc, but when there is text on the screen it is a real issue so i would say it inordinately isn't suitable for text based presentations.
What else would i need to buy with this? do i need to be close to a TV? help, I've never had one!
You can use a smart blue-ray player via HDMI(also any console or modern TV box) and can watch DVD/blue-ray and any internet app that my player allows (Netflix, hulu, amazon video, etc.) Can also use any type of USB stick like roku or amazon stick or use a VGA cable to connect to laptop or PC. Also a WiFi adapter can be used to connect tablet and smart phone. Just need to have the right setup for any application really.
I tried to set it to hdmi and plugged in to my macbook air, but it won't work. it keeps saying no signal. how do i use?
You need to confirm whether you need to buy a HDMI adapter for your macbook air which cannot connect the projector directly with HDMI cord.Then make sure both ends of the hdmi cable are properly seated. If you have another cable that allows you to hook up by USB or vga I would try that. I would also try using another piece of equipment like a DVD player.
Can I stream audio and video wirelessly?
Yes, if you have it connected to a device like a Roku. The projector is not equipped with any type of Wi-fi.
Where do i get a replacement bulb?
The lamp life is about 20,000hours and it can last several years. Check to see if you are still under warranty if your went out, contact the company.
Hi, just curious about its use with a ps4? and how dark does the room need to be for good picture?
This projector has Hmdi inputs which would support many devices. I have set mine up in the middle of the day with no blackout curtains. the picture is view-able but a darker setting would be better.
The mhl is the phone charger right? if not, does it come with one?
The mhl is not a phone charger. It is what you have to click on for your presentation to come up. Then press OK. Very easy from what I understand. It also came with the cord for you to hook up from the projector to your your computer. It is great.
How good is it for watching movies in the backyard at night on a 12 foot wife screen?
For the most part i use it indoors because you need it to be real dark or you cant see much. You do notice pixelation even after focusing on smaller text and such.
Just be careful because the week after the return period. I got a black streak along the left side and a redish spot in the middle
