Good value for the price. Easily bright enough in my basement bedroom for a good 70" screen. The 640x480 resolution means HD Content is downsampled so picture quality barely better than old school TV.

Any Problems: The LED stopped working after about 15 months. for the hours of use i could have gone with a bulb. resolution was low enough to make using windows difficult due to illegibility.

I have to admit, I thought for the price that I was taking a gamble. To say that this projector exceeded my expectations is by far an understatement. All the product promised was 100%! I will definitely in the future buy Favi products!

Any Problems: The only problem I encountered were that the directions are a little ambiguous. It took me about have an hour to figure out why I wasn't getting a picture from the projector. The problem was switching the view settings from VGA to 1080P. Once figured I it out, I could not complain.

My family and I love the FAVI RioHD-LED-2. We use it to show movies to all the kids at the camp ground at night. It is a compact unit that provides a great picture. I really like how easy it is to connect our wireless speaker transmitter to the VGA ports. I also like that there is no need for a cool down period when I am done using it.

Any Problems: I have not had any problems with the unit.

Great inexpensive projector, 400 lumens is on the low side but looks great in a dark room or late night outside family movie time! Very easy to use and lot's of options for connections

Review by brock trefethen

Over all I was impressed with the product considering the price.. I have used it several times for gaming and for a couple presentations. It was always easy to set up and to use.

Any Problems: There are only three problems that i encountered when using this product. First the image is not to sharp, it was very difficult to get a vivid and clear image. The second problem was the fact that i could not switch the the 16:9 ratio, this is not that big of a deal to me. The third was the lamp brightness, this is not a projector for bright rooms. It needs to be on the darker side to see image, which was a problem for one presentation i made.

I purchased my projector approximately 6 months ago and it has been one of my best recent purchases. It works great and has a good picture quality for the price. I definitely recommend this projector to any person shopping around.

Any Problems: No problems encountered to date

Review by Lilibetd

When I got it my 9-year-old grandson set to work to set it up and watch a Netflix Instant movie. Had a little problem getting the cords connected but they worked out and we watched the movie on the wall. It was very easy to see. Haven't had a chance to use it in a presentation but am looking forward to it.

Any Problems: Getting the cords hooked up right. Can't remember exactly now but we did work through it.

The projector is exactly what you pay for. The image is very clear but it's not very bright. Be sure to use it in a dark setting. I don't like that you have to use the remote for everything, it's a bit dangerous, if you lose the remote you're sunk.

Love this projector! I use it to watch movies, tv, and play video games! It is portable enough for me to take to friends' homes and to school. I love it!

Review by LD

Nice product for the price - this projector works well with PCs and Macs. Easy to set up.

Any Problems: Not a problem, but need a really dark room for best performance.

Review by David

Hard to review documents... text just isn't clear enough. We have changed the resolution to 800 x 600 and it helps, but it's still not what we need. It's fine for watching movies, but make sure it's very dark. Even a small amount of light will dilute the picture.

Review by Pearlmaharajan, Chennai

I am using this project for the last couple of months and so far no problem I faced. It is simple in usage and setting up. Picture quality is good; many options for connection, a big advantage, very compact design and even it has got a simple built in speakers. IT IS WORTH FOR THE MONEY !!!

Any Problems: so far not any.

Review by jason, from ohio

this projector is great for the money. it has a great picture through the hdmi port. and it is extremely quite. i really am enjoying our home theater with our favi projector and screen.

Any Problems: the only thing is that some bluray movies over shoot the 100" screen and some movie are on the screen perfectly. no way to adjust this while hooked up throught the hdmi port.

Review by dread2gwan

for the price this a good machine,the hdmi input is a plus.

Any Problems: When using the hdmi input the image is projected in 4:3 only and not 16:9.

Review by E Robinson

First time projector user. First for the value remarkable picture quality. The family loves I have and 85 inch screen from about 11 feet in my condo den turned into home theater room. Any once looking for a great entry level led projectors you can not go wrong. Keep in mind this is not a $2000 projector. Only flaw I can see is switching between 4:3 and 16:9 can only be done using composite connection. If your looking to buy this projector you wont be disappointed!!!

Any Problems: Have had projector for about a month haven't had any issues so far very reliable.
