What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Projector The HDMI when bumped, comes off the mother board so be very careful, other than that an amazing short throw projector, also there was a Bluetooth latency issue when paired to a external BT speaker at first , after fumbling in the feature there is a way to adjust it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile beamer I now have a huge TV-display on the ceiling of my bedroom thanks to this excellent beamer. It produces crisp and vivid images and is quick to start up and switch off. Very impressed by the performance of this compact and verstile beamer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small yet powerfull Was worried about the brightness, but it outperformed my assumptions. Short throw feature is awesome, requires less distance from the screen. In-built speakers are good for a small room. doesn't heat up, value for money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I had hoped! Compact, beautifully made and with great functionality. It has an easy-to-use, very intuitive interface, and everything worked as it is supposed to. Don't be concerned about the 450 Lumen rating...remember how close it is to the wall or screen (and your 'inverse squared' lessons from school science). I am very impressed, and might well buy another.

Can you please clarify if the PH450U can be mounted on ceiling or wall? Does it have screws on the back for mounting bracket? Do those screws work with VESA brackets? The answers to Jay1172 and Enich seem to contradict one another?

Hi. Can I input my receiver to the hdmi slot, so that all my sources will just run through the receiver> thanks.

Asked by: Dan12
We appreciate your interest in this projector and its options. In theory, there should be no trouble with connecting an audio receiver to this HDMI port, so long as a valid video signal is being transmitted through that HDMI cable. It is certainly possible to attempt such a connection.
