    If the resolution is only 320x240 then it isn't great. Equivalent to SD youtube videos or NTSC Amiga game resolutions, but no good for PAL games or any higher Workbench or overscan modes many games and demos use. Also, what inputs does it have, and what resolutions and refresh rates does it accept?

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Hard to find more info,

    it has 20 lumens ANSI,
    contrast 300:1
    25 to 115 cm diagonal projection
    as input it has microSDHC, usb port
    it can read
    3GP (ITU H.263), MPEG (MPEG 1, 2), ASF (WMA v2, WMP v7), DAT (MPEG 1), FLV (Flash), MP4 (MPEG 4), AVI (Xvid), WMV (WMP v7, v8), MP3, WMA,
    WAV, AAC, AIFF, JPEG, BMP, GIF, PNG e TIF.

    I can find any info if it has a scart input... it would be good for miggy.

    50 euros... e know it's a good projector, but for 50 euros...!!

    When I looked at the links it looked like it only has USB and SD ports for inputs, so it wouldn't be any good for the Amiga. Not really sure how useful it is, although as you say the price is good. I expect it isn't a daylight projected looking at the lumens rating, so would only be able to see a picture in a dark room, and remember that projector lightbulbs are the expensive part of the device and running computer displays through them will burn out the bulbs quicker.

    50 Euros is not much. Might be quite a fun device to have for that.

    20 lumens won't be very bright, but should be visible enough in a dark room.

    I'm guessing it uses LEDs as its light source? I see a mention of LED on the web pages, but don't see any mention of any bulbs. If it is LED, the life of the lamps wouldn't really be worth worrying about.

    There do seem to be a few miniature projectors around today. They even did a test of a few on The Gadget Show a few weeks back. One of them was decent, but none were that impressive.

    The specs sound pretty poor, but for 50 euros it's worth taking a chance on. I'm sure you could probably sell it on afterwards, should you get bored of it after the initial 'messing around' phase.

    The comments on that page aren't exactly flattering to it, either. But they don't slate it.
