    Sony MP-CL1A Reviews

    MP-CL1A 32-Lumen HD Pico Projector with Wi-Fi (Gold) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ignore the Lumens, t'is bright! I was very skeptical to buying a 32-Lumen oh but the perceived light from laser is different when I bought this little thing, but now I am a believer!I It is bright, sharp, and NO NEED TO FOCUS. Sure, the room needs to be dark to very dark to showcase the best quality, but I am very impressed. I compared this side by side to a LED 300 Lumen miniprojector, and the difference is staggering. Another amazing feature is that while the keystone adjustment is manual, it still focuses most of the light to where you want it so you won't get that lit-but-no image light on the wall. The only CONS I can think of is the lack of remote, lack of tripod mount, no tuner, and the inability to mount upside down because there is no setting to flip the image upside down (it does have left/right flip). The build quality is SUPERB and you don't need to haul around additional power supply because it can be powered by a mico-USB! Love it!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is great! Bought this portable projector as a gift and so far it's better than I could've expected. No blurry images, the color is amazing, and it's very easy to use and set up. Fun and powerful little gadget, definitely recommend!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very impressed overall. Could use more menu adjustments. I just got this today, so I haven't had alot of time to test this but overall I highly recommend it! Last year I bought a cheap $50 no brand pico projector, as a test run, to take camping with me. It was a good addition to my pack, so this season I decided to upgrade to a real one. So far i've only tested it in my apt but in quick tests, am really happy. Thoughts below. Likes: - Brightness: Even at 32lumens, this is plenty bright in correct (dark) lighting conditions. Lumens of laser light are measured different than bulb lumens, as I understand. -Build Quality: this thing feels very dense and nicely constructed. Definitely doesn't feel like a cheap equipment. -Picture quality: very good for movies, considering the size. Not the best to use for documents and text, but there's definitely worse on the market for that. -NO FOCUSING! -- this is particuarly cool. because it's a laser projection, you don't need to focus. earlier I was projecting it across a couple walls and on wall was about 10 feet further away. Image on both the near and the far wall. Both were perfectly in focus. Dislike: - Menu Settings: considering the pitfalls/limitation of pico projectors, I hoped for alot more pictures options in the menu. It just has contrast, hue and saturation. no brightness or anything else. -Speaker: It's junk. They should've not even built one in. external speaker is a MUST. -Mircast (android) only. No Airplay: I knew this going into it but it's still annoying. I'll be buying a used android phone specifically for this projector so I don't have to use wires. Using an HDMI from my iphone on this thing is a little precarious if you're using the included stand to prop it up. The plugs all plug into the side, so it could be prone to tipping over with the weight of the cables. -No remote- It has no remote compatibility. Keep this in mind if you want use this in some way that you won't have easy access to the device. Conclusion/Recommendation: As said above, it's a very good product that I would highly recommend. There are some design flaws here but with the size and quality of the product, those are overshadowed by the pluses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I love this projector, compact, powerful, easy to use, and produces crystal clear images.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes Great product to play games and watch movie. Don't use this one for presentation with text. (Blurry)
    Date published: 2017-01-18
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have mixed feelings about this product I like the product due to its compact size and light weight. Its resolution is higher than most projectors. There is no need to focus. Keystone only needs to be set once. It is easy to use and ideal for a traveling presenter. But it is too dim (36 lumins vs. 2,000 and up for larger projectors). I would use it only when no other projectors or TVs is available.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Laser Projector The Sony MP-CL1A is a great projector for the road warrior. I begin my road trip to launch a new website in Bemidji, MN. Along the way I will use the projector with Growth Zone, the next generation of intercontivity software, to show Growth Zone software developers how native Americans will be connected together. The projector will be used in their conference room using my phone that will be connected by wifi with the projector using blue tooth to connect through a Samsung battery operated sound bar thus having a complete projection system I can put in my pocket. The Sony MP-CL1A is slightly smaller in size then my Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Beautiful color in their size of 40 inches diagonal but still capable of projecting 12 feet from ceiling to floor albeit without the brilliant coloration. I tried to use it while lying in bed and it works watching tv on the ceiling. The beauty of this product is it can connect to multiple devices at one time. I would buy each one of my children one if I could.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you'd want in a portable projector and more Bluetooth feature, standard hdmi port, and overall accessibility make this a better buy than most home projectors at this price. The need to never focus can't be overstated as well. It really is just point and go at any angle and distance. A must own for those who like to watch movies under the stars or any non traditional place. Even leaving it stationary at home seems to be superior to watching things on tv
