BenQ Joybee GP2 review

 

The Joybee 2 is a miniature LED projector with a built-in iPod dock, which is designed to be taken with you to show off your videos. It has a 1,280x800 resolution and 200 lumens brightness, and will take an input from a range of sources apart from...

A portable projector with a fairly high resolution, plenty of connections and comprehensive file format support, but it's expensive compared to the competition

BenQ JoyBee GP2 review

 

The Joybee GP2 retains the same squarish design of BenQ's earlier GP1, with a ring of touch-sensitive buttons on the projector's top that handle everything from power to menu navigation. Around the projector's front a perforated fan exhaust grille sits...

BenQ's Joybee GP2 has a clear list of positives and a clear list of negatives. If you're the kind of person that can overlook some image quality problems in exchange for portability and connectivity -- a travelling executive or salesperson, maybe --...

BenQ JoyBee GP2

 

BenQ is known for good quality and decently priced projectors, with the portable Joybee GP2 aiming to dent the iPhone entertainment market.

iPhone dock lots of connectivity options; onboard storage; comes with carry bag and remote

Does not perform well with ambient light; power cables take up lots of space; no HDMI cable included; onboard sound not the best.

BenQ Joybee GP2

 

The Joybee GP2 makes a good case for itself, if you need a projector that's affordable, has a good mind for business and is acceptable for casual use.

Highly portable. Decent image quality. Optional battery pack.

Blown out highlights. Tinny speakers.
