Exactly what it is...7/21/2011
I bought this projector for gaming and just to have a movie theater like experience. I rated everything out of five because it deserves it. It is meant for portable use and for small businesses and because it is able to handle gaming systems and movies or tv makes it exceptional I had to return my original because of a defect and even though I was out of warranty the company worked with me to give me a new one. The customer service is amazing. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a all around good projector.
This projector is a good deal as far as image quality and connectivity. Perfect for connecting to a basic dvd (don't expect HD resolution, though the HDMI input is a plus). Connect to your old TIVO or vcr via composite or other analog inputs. This unit is energy efficient and you can easily use the remote to provide an image brighter than the 3 presets. Don't expect too much from the built in speakers, although the stereo output should connect easily to your sound system. No problem getting a decent 60 to 70" diagonal picture in a lightly curtained room.
I purchased this Projector for our office overall I am satisfied with this product . however I did have trouble understanding the directions of operation and had to get someone to help me.It is a good value for the Dollar and is handy and portable.
FAVI RioHD-LED-2 Projector --GREAT!6/22/2011
This little projector is used on our deck at the lake. We project live music DVDs and movies onto a king size white sheet stapled up to the outside of the deck frame! The projector is great because it is so small and portable. The picture comes out great. We project in reverse up on the deck to the back side of the sheet so we can watch from the other side and sit down in the yard. That way all of the equipment is safe from any weather up on the deck. Our neighborhood loves the Saturday night -pull up a lawn chair entertainment. We bought a pair of BOSE multimedia speakers to boost the sound and have a portable DVD player. Everything is small, easy to move and the projector is a wonderful edition to our entertainment at our lake cabin. It is well worth the money.
I absolutely love this thing! It's of a way higher quality than other "comparable" projectors I've seen and tried.

Movie Night Is On6/16/2011
I purchased the RioHD LED 2 by Favi in October of 2010. I set it up right away and found it to be simple. I connected it to my DVD player and proceeded to dial it in. I found I got a good picture with AV cables it came with. I used my HDMI cable and it delivered a better picture. I finally purchased a Blu Ray Disc palyer and found that it still got better. No more adjustments needed every movie is fun to watch and my family really loves it. I believe that for the quality it will deliver and for the price there is no greater value.
Affordable Classroom Projector6/15/2011
This projector is a great deal for the money. I had to buy my own since there are so few to go around in my school and I did not want to be tied down by having to sign one out. It certainly met my expectations. It was very easy to set up right out of the box. I had no problem using it with my lap top. I would caution those potential buyers to make sure you keep the remote somewhere safe because if you lose it, you will be unable to change settings. The projector itself only has the inputs and an on/off button. This is a quiet projector but I am not sure about the speakers since I use my own Logitech computer speakers plugged into my laptop. The brightness can tend to wash out images on a standard drop down screen found in most school buildings but using the remote to dim it down is quite simple. I did buy an HDMI cable but have not been able to get it to work correctly. My laptop is brand new and I spent an hour one night trying to change the settings but nothing seemed to work. The HDMI visual looks almost cartoonish. I am sure there is something I'm not doing right, but for now the VGA setting is fine for what I project in class such as CNN Student News, occasional National Geographic DVD's, and PBS streaming video. Much more affordable than most brand names on the market. Very compact and light. Well worth the money.
Excellent quality, high performance for its price. Online instructions were easy to follow. Delivery was also swift. My son and I are greatly satisfied and thankful.
Great Projector for the Price9/26/2010
This projector is a good deal. If you're looking for HD this isn't it but if you just want something for your kids to watch movies on it's great. I set it up in my basement and the kids love it. Make sure you use the HDMI connection when hooking up a DVD player, the picture is much better over HDMI even though the projector is not true HD. The projector is small, light and easy to set up. We've watched Speed Racer, Cars and Star Trek on it and they all look good.
