The Dr.Q/ Dr. J AK-50 Projector has a branding situation. On its Amazon webpage, it is branded as Dr. J, nonetheless on the consumer manual, projector and packaging I gained, the manufacturer is Dr. Q.

On the back again of the projector there is an array of ports: there is a VGA connector, two USB ports, one HDMI port and a TF card slot. There is also an AV and audio jack, together with a ability rocker change. On top of the device there are menu, quantity, and navigation controls.

 You do have to have to examine that the USB or TF card you use is no larger sized than 32GB or it will not be recognised by the projector.

The projector also comes with a simple distant regulate and a smooth display screen cloth monitor and hooks. This monitor is equivalent to the monitor on the Vankyo Leisure 530W I appeared at earlier. 

The brands claim that this projector is rated at 7500 lumens. I feel that it is significant to notice that these are not ANSI (American National Expectations Institute) lumens and the figure could very well be exaggerated for promoting reasons.

There is a great explanation of the variations on BenQ’s internet site if you would like to come across out far more about how light-weight outputs are calculated.

The light-weight output is a little bit brighter than the Vankyo Leisure 530W projector but there is not as substantial a change as claimed with the further lumens.

You can hook up the projector to Wi-Fi and then solid your cellular machine to the projector. Relationship is quick. The projector speedily appears in the machine listing and monitor mirroring is simple.

The projector can be positioned in entrance or guiding the monitor, stood on a table, or ceiling mounted. The M4 screw holes are hidden guiding the 4 rubber feet which are glued onto the device and are actually hard to get off — you will have to have a screwdriver or equivalent.

The Dr. J AK-50 has two 3W speakers offering a loud stereo seem which is very well-balanced across the ranges. A pleasant attribute below is that in the options you can adjust the seem mode to emphasise bass and treble, or use balanced seem, or equaliser to tweak the options further. 

All in all, at underneath $230 the Dr. J/Dr. Q projector is an very affordable projector for household and office environment that will task office environment paperwork and movies in daylight. It is quick to use, and somewhat moveable and would be high-quality for household theatre and office environment use.
