Got the Quim5 today.... Unfortunately the USB port does not work... When I insert the usb card reader the Quim5 prompts me to insert the USB cable.... My Usb card reader has a blue indicator light to let you know that the USB is getting the 5volts... But I don't get that from the Quim5, I do get it when I plug it in on my laptop and my tablet.... I was able to watch a movie using the HDMI connection and the picture is pretty good for only 500 Lumens..... My other projector was the Epson 8350.....
That is a bummer with the reader, perhaps not supplying enough power. However the reader may consume more power than the card itself or thumbdrive. Any luck with thumbdrive into usb port?
Those are all definitely nice features, but my point was that $300 is a reasonable commitment for someone who wants a basic projector. $500 begins to deal in the realm of serious purchase. I want a projector, but spending $500+ on one right now would invoke wifely wrath.
You got me thinking though. Might be better just to wait to buy, then get something more like your suggestion. Is 1080p just not that big a deal with projectors, or is it just that 1080 is a LOT more expensive? For example, what would you say is the minimum price point for 700+ lumen led 1080p?
1080p is a very big deal for projectors, just not for projectors of this size because they aren't bright enough to project screens large enough for 1080p to matter.
Thanks on the heads up on the Bluetooth... I am happy to report that I did indeed try the Monoprice Bluetooth dongle on the Qumi Q5 and it plays audio in sync... I just watched Dirty Harry and no problems at all.... Did I fire 5 shots or did I fire 6 shots. Do you feel lucky punk........ I gots to know.... LOL Now you know, do the dongle....
