What’s the noise like?
1. 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.
2. The projector does however emit a rather loud fan noise, this is mentioned in the Amazon listing, but when connected to sound bar through the AV port or crank up the volume, its fully drowned out by the speaker, it really does not affect the viewing experience.

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.

The video plays no sound, even with the external speakers! What’s wrong?
Please follow the steps as below:
1. Please confirm if the projector is not in mute status.
2. Please check if the video file is with Dolby sound effect. Because of Dolby patent, most projectors do not play Dolby sound.
3. Please try a mp3 format file or YouTube video, and see if it plays sound.

Can i show images direct from a usb stick?
Yes. There is a USB port and you simply plug in your memory stick and the images come up the same way as they would in a digital photo frame.
How good is the photo quality? Is it still the same quality when looking up close to the projected image or is it blurry or pix-elated?
The projected image is just like a TV with the same resolution. Just like with a TV, a big screen has bigger pixels than a smaller screen with the same resolution. So, the bigger you project the more noticeable these pixels will be. However you will be pleasantly surprised at how like a big screen TV the image is, in the dark. Take your time focusing it and make sure the projector is level and don't use the keystone adjustment and you should get a perfectly sharp image.
