In the box

I loved the carrying case – it’s well padded and has retaining straps to keep it in. Also comes with all the accessories you’d need – remote, HDMI cable, power cable and a composite cable adapter (to connect camcorders, VCRs, DVD players, etc). Mine didn’t come with 2 AAA batteries for the remote so make sure you have a couple around to use the remote.

Pros & Cons

Pros

Small size, two hdmi inputs, 1 video input, 2 usb input, wireless device connectivity, remote control, lightweight, hd resolution.

Cons

Maybe not powerful enough to project during the day.

Design

The case is very nice as well, soft cloth exterior & padded interior. Very compact, lightweight, and easy to carry and store.

Ports

Equipped with 2*HDMI ports, 2*USB ports, VGA port, AV port, DBPOWER Q6 outdoor movie projector can easily connects with TV Box, Amazon Fire Stick TV, Chrome cast, PC, laptop, tablet, external speakers, X box, DVD player, USB stick, iPad, iPhone, Android smartphone.

Resolution

Picture quality is clear enough though it will vary depending on distance and can be adjusted with the settings for color.  Colors are great, brightness is amazing and quality is great. I was amazed by the picture quality even when there is sunlight and even if the surface area used is big it still retains a great viewing experience. 

Contrast Ratio

It has a high dynamic contrast ratio of 10000:1. As result, it produces very clear images, even the tiny hair you can see.

Keystone adjustment

The keystone correction is interesting – not digital at all. it’s like you’re changing the rotation of the actual LCD panel inside the machine. so what happens is when it’s tilted too much, the top/bottom of the image will start to get out of focus (compared to the horizontal center).
so i’d suggest to “focus” with the keystone first so that the entire image has equal sharpness, then do the final focus with the focus adjustment. (keystone and focus are next to each other on the machine)

ROKU support

The WiFi is nice because you’re able to cast video from your phone. I used it with my Roku and it worked well. I like that there is a 5V USB port that I was able to power my Roku with. It’s even easier to pop in the fire stick and watch Disney+, Netflix, and Prime videos! 

Audio

The device has a small internal speaker that works well in small spaces, but external speakers can be connected through Bluetooth. The device itself is very quiet, in fact there is hardly any noticeable noise at all.

Easy setup – DBPOWER 8000L Full HD outdoor movie projector

The DBPOWER Q6 mini LCD video projector in my experience was easy to set up and performed just as advertised. Right out of the box, it was convenient to connect the device through a simple HDMI cable with my PC. You can then either duplicate your PC screen or use the projector as a second screen. Anything you see on the PC can be projected through the device. Multiple alternative inputs are available, including USB or Screen Monitoring.

Does this DBPOWER 8000L Full HD outdoor movie projector work well during daylight?

How well it works depends on what you’re watching – if you’re watching a movie with dark scenery, then you’ll probably notice some problems with detail in the dark bits, compared to watching on a monitor – basically, ambient light is lighting the wall and washes out some of the darker details.

It depends on how far back the projector is (and thus how big the image is). I run mine at around an 85″ diagonal size, on a cream wall, and it’s around the same as a dimmer monitor – I’ve used it during daytime with fairly thin curtains drawn.

On the other hand, for games where most things aren’t dark – for example, Catan on an Xbox 360 – it works fine. Obviously, the less ambient light around, the better – especially for shadowy videos – but you don’t have to wait till nighttime. It’s a bit like old CRT televisions where the background wasn’t black like modern LCD display
