The COVID-19 pandemic is leading many of us to watch more content, and sometimes in different places than at home. Because of this, it's not always easy to have several TV sets, let alone smart ones. Thankfully, portable projectors can solve this issue, as they can be easily carried anywhere. In addition to being compact, Anker's Nebula Capsule Max runs on Android, making it seamless to access content on the go. It traditionally sells for $470, but it's now down to just $376. Read More
If you're not sure whether you should watch movies in the living room or the bedroom, why not settle for a portable projector that you can place wherever you want? Anker's Nebula Mars II mobile projector is currently on sale, down to just $330 on eBay. Read More
Summer is here, which means kicking off your shoes, relaxing outdoors, and exploring new places... hopefully while still social distancing. If you want to take your entertainment with you on the go, a portable projector is a great all-in-one solution, but you need something that's bright, works well with a remote, supports apps, and has some decent sound. Those are all qualities I enjoyed about the Xgimi projectors when I reviewed them last year, and now three of the brands' models are discounted up to 25% as Amazon's deals of the day. Read More
Anker produces a few portable projectors under its 'Nebula' sub-brand, like the Android-powered Mars II and the cheaper Prizm II. Both of those models are now on sale, at $160 off and $70 off, respectively. Read More
A few weeks ago, I reviewed the XGIMI MoGo, a device that belongs to a rare breed of portable projectors with Android TV. A more expensive version, the MoGo Pro, is now available. It keeps most of the same specs and features, but ups the resolution to 1080p instead of 540p, and raises the brightness from 210 to 300 ANSI Lumens. The result is a sharper, slightly brighter image that makes this the best Android TV projector currently available. Whether it's worth the price hike, though, is a different story. Read More
Portable projectors have been the fantasy of entertainment enthusiasts for decades. Over the past years, the image quality, tech, and price have become better and more reasonable, but most devices either run a sloppy OS or don't run one at all. If you want a TV-centric platform on your portable projector, you should consider this XGIMI MoGo projector, which comes with Android TV and is now down from $400 to $340 on Amazon. Read More
Anker's Nebula line of portable projectors continues to grow with the recently released Apollo. This latest pico projector has forgone the soda-can-esque form factor common among Anker's previous products in favor of a new, rectangular design. Anker has also improved projector brightness, doubling that found on the original Capsule. Best of all, the Nebula Apollo has received its first substantial discount since its September release and is currently available from Amazon for $329. Read More
Mobile accessory maker Anker made a name for itself by producing products that are both affordable and reliable. Our review found that this held for the original Nebula Capsule, but it needed improvements in a few areas such as image resolution and brightness. Anker has since introduced the Capsule Max, which addresses these issues with improved brightness and clarity, and you can already get one at a new low price of $400 ($70 off.) Read More
Until recently, most portable projectors either ran no software at all, relying on HDMI and USB for input, or offered a regular version of Android that wasn't suited for TVs or navigation with a remote. Then Anker's Nebula Capsule II launched with Android TV and the game changed drastically. It was the first projector to provide a seamless experience thanks to an optimized interface made specifically for TVs and official access to the Play Store.
XGIMI, a projector maker, is now dipping its toes in the same market with the new MoGo. With Android TV, Google Assistant, Harman Kardon audio, 210 ANSI Lumens, and an appealing price tag, the MoGo has everything going for it, but you should keep an eye open for a few quirks. Read More
Anker has been producing portable projectors since 2017, when it released the first Nebula Mars. Since then, it has made a sequel to the Mars, and a smaller Nebula Capsule the size of a soda can. While the hardware and build quality were excellent on all of them, the heavily-modified Android software always left a lot to be desired.
Anker's newest model, the Nebula Capsule II, is significant because it's the first portable projector to run full-blown Android TV. Read More
