DBPower T20 – 1500 Lumen LCD Minibeamer
The range of interesting electronics from China is almost inexhaustible. Not only football fans like to share their observations but also many smartphone owners often want to share their vacation memories with others. How and if this is possible with this projector, you will learn while reading.
Short Review of DBPower T20 – 1500 Lumen LCD Minibeamer
A projector lives on moving pictures … that’s why there are not many words, but this time we shot a small video .
In order to anticipate one thing, the vendor also explicitly emphasizes that this device is not intended for the professional sector. This means that this is rather not suitable for a PowerPoint or Excel presentation.
For exchanging holiday memories in a common round, it is however always suitable. In view of the price, the brightness of 1600 lumens and the maximum projection size of just under 5m are noteworthy! Of course, the heat development with a LED lighting is lower than with halogen lighting. The noise pollution of the ventilation is minimal in a closed room. The numerous universal input sources (VGA / 1 x USB / 1 x HDMI / AV) offer flexible possibilities to use different media. There is also a slot for an SD card.
It is particularly favorable that one of the two USB ports is suitable for powering a suitable MiraCast stick. Such a dongle is not included. The transmission of the image content of a smartphone worked excellently in our tests.
Note, however, in any case, that although media with this resolution (1080p, 720p, 480p) can be used, but the projector only has a native resolution of 800 x 480 pixels.
► Quality of workmanship and certification ◄
The device is sufficiently certified for use (FDA, FCC, CE, RoHS). The test marks are permanently attached to the bottom of the housing. The device is neatly processed.
With this projector you can achieve good results in the non-professional field. However, this is neither intended nor suitable for professional requirements. Due to the numerous different input options, it is universally applicable and can be operated well with the included remote control. When playing back videos and pictures via the USB or SD card interface, internal players are available for playing videos, pictures and sound files in the usual formats.
