Benq Joybee GP2 Mini Projector

The other key feature of my new place, a mini projector from Benq. The latest model is a LED 1280×800 resolution. Super small and portable, fast on and off and quiet due to the low heat generated and longer life of the LED projection. Other features include

  • Supports iPod and iPhone TV/out and charging dock
  • Has 1gb internal memory for storing photos, music and videos for playback
  • Supports for portable battery operation 3hrs / 1hr (eco/normal mode)
  • Has SD card reader built-in, HDMI and 2 USB ports
  • Support USB display mirroring on Windows (can’t find driver for Mac) without the need for VGA port
  • Estimated 30,000 hrs/ 20,000 hrs life (eco/normal mode)
  • 100/200 ANSI lumens
  • 2 x 2W built in speakers
  • 1 : 1.13 throw … mean for every 1m away from the wall the projected image is 1.13m in size. This is very big projection using a very small throw distance
  • Keystone +- 40 degrees

It was a 5 mins decision to purchase this when i saw it. Firstly i have a soft spot for Benq projectors. Secondly the size is just small and it is powerful w high resolution unlike the other pico projectors out there. Tested it last night and i cannot be any happier.

  1. At 298 Computer Mall at Wan Chai Hong Kong. You can search for it on Amazon i think. I got it at HKD4,900. Likely it was a parallel import as i doubt it is released officially in HK yet.
