I decided to trade my 300 lumen pico projector for this one, and the difference is night and day! Obviously not as portable, but the image is so much better! I had no trouble setting it up and am using it with a FireTV stick plugged in the HDMI port. This is the perfect combination.The projector is very bright, and the high definition picture is a real treat. I barely hear the fan noise (I actually don't notice it when watching movies). Note that since the FireTV connects to my surround sound system via bluetooth, I didn't get a chance to test the speaker on the projector.I am so glad I traded portability for image quality given that the projector doesn't rever leave my media room. The projector is about 14 feet from the screen and fills it completely.Overall, a complete upgrade for less than 500$. Well worth it!
