New Review "Exceeded All Expectations"

"...Most all of us have experienced mobile music via connected smartphones, streaming services, and Bluetooth wireless headphones. But how about mobile movies? I’m so seriously, you guys. You gotta get one of these."

"...When it comes to easy and hassle-free use, the Celluon PicoPro definitely does it right. It’s straight plug-and-play with no onboard controls aside from power (press-hold), volume, and input (also press-hold to switch). All you do is turn the projector on, decide to use it wirelessly or via the included HDMI cable, and that’s it."

"...If you are running Android 4.0 or later, screen mirroring is baked right in. On my Galaxy Note 4, it’s one of my quick setting buttons at the top of my notification panel. Tap it, connect to the Celluon PicoPro projector, and that’s it. Instant mirroring from a mobile smartphone or tablet. 

The PicoPro does everything else all on its own with fixed brightness, contrast, color, saturation, and so forth. Not everyone is going to like the lack of settings or customizable presets. I’ve used projectors both ways, and sometimes you just want something to work right away without any additional fussing."

"In terms of wireless connectivity, my Galaxy Note 4 has had zero problems whatsoever. I hit the ‘screen mirroring’ button, wait a few seconds, and I’m in business. However, my Lenovo S8-50 tablet doesn’t fare so well. Half the time I’m required to reboot both devices so they see and link with each other (haven’t figured out what’s going on behind the scenes, yet)."

..."I have to say that the Celluon PicoPro projector has greatly surpassed all of my expectations. I went in thinking that it would be a cool little portable projector to tag along with my gear. You know, for fun. I wasn’t anticipating a powerhouse coming from the size of a smartphone (roughly). It’s bright, it’s sharp, it’s silent, and you can enjoy a full movie (and then some) before having to recharge."
