Built-In Projector Actually Makes This Media Player Even Worse

Desperately clinging to a product category that smartphones have all but wiped out, this tiny media player has its sights set on the iPod Shuffle. It hopes to take some market share with a built-in projector that only succeeds in making this device even worse.

Being able to enjoy videos and other media on a projected 60-inch screen sounds awesome, right? Unfortunately the size of this projector means that is never going to happen. There’s no mention of how bright it is — its lumens rating — which basically means for best results you’ll want to use it in a completely dark room — or, better yet, near a black hole. As a media player, it can handle pretty much every file type the internet can throw at it, but its tiny form factor means there’s also a tiny battery in there. So don’t expect to be enjoying movies for any longer than half an hour. Save your $US100 and go to the movies a bunch of times.
