Samsung MBP-200 projector review

Samsung has been experimenting with projectors for a long time, building them into phones, trying to make them smaller, and so on. Portable projectors have been shown at exhibitions for quite a long time, news has been written about them, meanwhile, for quite some time now I have been trying to write a more or less normal review of a device called Samsung MBP-200 (Multimedia Beam Projector). An interesting device, the prototypes of which had a lot of problems, but now I have a sample on hand, and I have something to tell a respected audience about it. I must say right away that as a gadget in the correct sense of the word, as a toy for a technology lover, there is no price for a device.

Design, construction

A small box, about one and a half packs of cigarettes, there is a display on the front panel, next to it there is a platform with touch keys for moving around the menu, in the center there is an OK button, a couple more buttons are located right along the edge, the bottom one is responsible for returning back , the other - for calling additional functions in a particular menu item, application. On the left side there is a connector for charging and connecting to a computer, next to it is a slot for a microSD card closed by a flap. Below is the power and lock lever, on the right side is a movable focus key. Well, we shouldn’t forget about the projector lens itself, though I don’t know if I’m calling it correctly. In general, when you do not need it, you can close it with a lid. There is also a 3.5 mm headphone jack, a loop for attaching a strap, a retractable antenna for DMB reception, and a speaker grill is located next to the jack.

The battery cover is quite easy to remove, under it, respectively, only the battery.

The dimensions of the device are 107.3x48.8x19 mm, weight - 160 grams. I don’t even know, there is still, in fact, no market for such devices, so there’s nothing to compare the appearance with. The assembly is good, the device is small, so we will consider that this is a "test".

It's too early to talk about the delivery set, it may turn out that such things will simply not be delivered to our country. However, I can assume this: a charger, a cable for connecting to a computer, another one for connecting to a TV, a special holder for a small screen.

Display

Let's first talk about the "internal" side of this device, let's start with the LCD screen, it has a diagonal of 2.2 inches, resolution - 320x240 pixels. By and large, you can use the gadget as a regular player, by connecting headphones and switching to LCD mode, you can watch movies right on the screen, navigate between songs and photos. However, you need to understand that as a simple player, the MBP-200 has no particular value, the screen is small for video, however, the device plays music well.

The menu is as follows: music player, video player, DMB (not working for us), file browser, settings, Projector item (it switches between a regular display and a picture on a screen or wall). Accordingly, switching to the projector, you can work with the menu in exactly the same way, listen to music through speakers or headphones, only your screen seems to move to the wall. At first, this is surprising, although I have dealt with projectors more than once, the diminutiveness simply fascinates here.

Traditionally, once again I will kick the touch keys, it cost nothing to make normal hardware buttons, no, innovations do not end there. Unfortunately. Navigating the menu using sensors cannot be called convenient and fast, you can only put up with it and try to get used to it.

A little about the file browser: here are applications for viewing office documents, images. I'll tell you about the first, well, let's start talking about the main functionality. Switching to the projector and opening an office document, such as a presentation, adjusting the focus, you realize that the size of the image on the wall is about the same as a thirteen-inch display (even a little smaller). Only the resolution is not at all like that, so it’s difficult to read what kind of letters there are. Same for Word documents, I don't think the MBP-200 is good for presentations, unless you prepare them specifically for the gadget, using a big bold font.

Memory

The device has about 200 MB of memory, so you will have to use a microSD memory card. There is a nuance here: after you install the card into the slot, the Music, Video, Texts and Pictures folders are created. The projector does not see files outside the folders, therefore, you need to pull out the card, install it in the card reader and transfer the files to the folders. After that, the gadget starts to play everything perfectly, show, and so on. Declared support for cards up to 16 GB, I used microSD 8 GB.

Settings

Settings are quite transparent and simple, you can choose the type of memory (built-in or card), set the backlight level of the display, set the timeout for touch control, select the language, enable or disable the keystroke sound, reset settings, view system information. As for the External Device item, I am tormented by doubts that so far no one can help resolve. Here you can select a mobile phone or an A / V device, apparently, this is a TV or something else. Why do I need to connect the projector to them - I can’t understand, maybe to reproduce the contents of the projector’s memory with their help?

Video and Music

Well, here we come to the most important thing, everything else, in fact, is not so important. MP3, WMA, OGG, AAC, WAV files are supported, this applies to music, the video player works with DivX, Xvid, WMV9 Simple Profile, MPEG-2, MPEG-4. Let's start with a simple one, namely the musical possibilities. You can just listen to music, the player settings are minimal, there are not even equalizers - music plays and plays itself. This is the time for us to take advantage of switching the image from the display to the projector, let's do it. As if by magic, the image is transferred to the nearest wall, you see the same player. Let's play a little with focusing - well, now everything is very clearly visible. What do you pay attention to first? First of all, the sound quality is unrealistic for such a portable device. True, at first I only listened with surprise, not understanding how this was possible - the sound was loud, voluminous, powerful, and very good. Although the speaker seems to be one. In short, it is surprising and incomprehensible how such an effect was achieved, but listening to music without headphones is really very pleasant. And in headphones, however, too - the quality is at its best here, compared with the Samsung YP-P3, in some ways it will be more interesting. Some sorcerers.

But now let's take some file and watch a video, because it is clear that this is what the gadget is intended for in the end. To begin with, I downloaded a very tricky file to the memory card, this is a series of the series "House Doctor" downloaded using a torrent, then converted for XPERIA. That is, a rather furious thing for a device that has a rather limited set of codecs and supported formats. However, the device handled it easily. Well, how does this machinery work. The image is projected, of course, anywhere, but it is best to use some kind of white surface. With all due respect, this thing cannot be taken seriously, therefore, there can be no talk of buying a special screen, installing it in the right place and other tricks. A piece of white cardboard is enough, and white wallpaper, white furniture, a white book or a white T-shirt will do - in general, you understand. By moving the projector away or away, you can adjust the size of the image so you need to focus. Empirically, it was found that the effective distance is a little more than a meter, while the image on the wall approximately corresponds to a fifteen-inch monitor. This, of course, is about the size, you can more or less normally adjust the focus and watch your movie.

Food

I will only note that it is too early to talk about the operating time, this is not a standard "excuse" of a journalist - a lot of things have changed since I got acquainted with the first samples of the device. Including connector. And a battery. Accordingly, I will be careful not to draw any conclusions about the working time of commercial samples for our country. The device is already being sold somewhere, but it may well turn out that if it appears in our country, then a different version, without a TV antenna and DMB functionality, there may be other changes. The fact is that I used the MBP-200 https://cars45.com.gh/drmaOgfMT3a5cGaXyn9jVhJZ with the charger permanently connected, note that the projector gets quite hot during operation.

Conclusions

Well, let's think about what the prospects for such a toy might be. Watching films "on the wall" is curious, there is scope for ideas. You can seat the child where it is usually impossible to seat - what's the difference that this is not a screen, but wallpaper with a pattern, it's still interesting. You can plug in headphones at night and watch a movie yourself by putting a screen replacement somewhere - everything is better than behind the iPhone screen. It can be used as an "entertainment", for example, record a movie about some zombies or something erotic with bondage elements and carefully include it in the company. Here it is also interesting that it is difficult to determine the source of the sound the first time, the volumetric effect affects. In general, the toy is attractive. The price, however, can be off-putting. For example, I found such a site where a very similar thing, even outwardly, is sold, the price at the level of three hundred euros is pleasantly refreshing, for a toy, even if it is complex, it is painfully expensive. If you are counting on working with office documents, then it’s better to forget about this matter right away, as I said, it doesn’t work. There are films and music. You do realize that there are hundreds of much better devices for watching videos, right?

The main conclusion is simple: this thing is from the same series as megaglasses that can replace a cinema, but you won’t find real, living owners in the afternoon with fire.

Samsung MBP-200 projector review

Samsung has been experimenting with projectors for a long time, building them into phones, trying to make them smaller, and so on. Portable projectors have been shown at exhibitions for quite a long time, news has been written about them, meanwhile, for quite some time now I have been trying to write a more or less normal review of a device called Samsung MBP-200 (Multimedia Beam Projector). An interesting device, the prototypes of which had a lot of problems, but now I have a sample on hand, and I have something to tell a respected audience about it. I must say right away that as a gadget in the correct sense of the word, as a toy for a technology lover, there is no price for a device.

Design, construction

A small box, about one and a half packs of cigarettes, there is a display on the front panel, next to it there is a platform with touch keys for moving around the menu, in the center there is an OK button, a couple more buttons are located right along the edge, the bottom one is responsible for returning back , the other - for calling additional functions in a particular menu item, application. On the left side there is a connector for charging and connecting to a computer, next to it is a slot for a microSD card closed by a flap. Below is the power and lock lever, on the right side is a movable focus key. Well, we shouldn’t forget about the projector lens itself, though I don’t know if I’m calling it correctly. In general, when you do not need it, you can close it with a lid. There is also a 3.5 mm headphone jack, a loop for attaching a strap, a retractable antenna for DMB reception, and a speaker grill is located next to the jack.

The battery cover is quite easy to remove, under it, respectively, only the battery.

The dimensions of the device are 107.3x48.8x19 mm, weight - 160 grams. I don’t even know, there is still, in fact, no market for such devices, so there’s nothing to compare the appearance with. The assembly is good, the device is small, so we will consider that this is a "test".

It's too early to talk about the delivery set, it may turn out that such things will simply not be delivered to our country. However, I can assume this: a charger, a cable for connecting to a computer, another one for connecting to a TV, a special holder for a small screen.

Display

Let's first talk about the "internal" side of this device, let's start with the LCD screen, it has a diagonal of 2.2 inches, resolution - 320x240 pixels. By and large, you can use the gadget as a regular player, by connecting headphones and switching to LCD mode, you can watch movies right on the screen, navigate between songs and photos. However, you need to understand that as a simple player, the MBP-200 has no particular value, the screen is small for video, however, the device plays music well.

The menu is as follows: music player, video player, DMB (not working for us), file browser, settings, Projector item (it switches between a regular display and a picture on a screen or wall). Accordingly, switching to the projector, you can work with the menu in exactly the same way, listen to music through speakers or headphones, only your screen seems to move to the wall. At first, this is surprising, although I have dealt with projectors more than once, the diminutiveness simply fascinates here.

Traditionally, once again I will kick the touch keys, it cost nothing to make normal hardware buttons, no, innovations do not end there. Unfortunately. Navigating the menu using sensors cannot be called convenient and fast, you can only put up with it and try to get used to it.

A little about the file browser: here are applications for viewing office documents, images. I'll tell you about the first, well, let's start talking about the main functionality. Switching to the projector and opening an office document, such as a presentation, adjusting the focus, you realize that the size of the image on the wall is about the same as a thirteen-inch display (even a little smaller). Only the resolution is not at all like that, so it’s difficult to read what kind of letters there are. Same for Word documents, I don't think the MBP-200 is good for presentations, unless you prepare them specifically for the gadget, using big bold type.

Memory

The device has about 200 MB of memory, so you will have to use a microSD memory card. There is a nuance here: after you install the card into the slot, the Music, Video, Texts and Pictures folders are created. The projector does not see files outside the folders, therefore, you need to pull out the card, install it in the card reader and transfer the files to the folders. After that, the gadget starts to play everything perfectly, show, and so on. Declared support for cards up to 16 GB, I used microSD 8 GB.

Settings

Settings are quite transparent and simple, you can choose the type of memory (built-in or card), set the backlight level of the display, set the timeout for touch control, select the language, enable or disable the keystroke sound, reset settings, view system information. As for the External Device item, I am tormented by doubts that so far no one can help resolve. Here you can select a mobile phone or an A / V device, apparently, this is a TV or something else. Why do I need to connect the projector to them - I can’t understand, maybe to reproduce the contents of the projector’s memory with their help?

Video and Music

Well, here we come to the most important thing, everything else, in fact, is not so important. MP3, WMA, OGG, AAC, WAV files are supported, this applies to music, the video player works with DivX, Xvid, WMV9 Simple Profile, MPEG-2, MPEG-4. Let's start with a simple one, namely the musical possibilities. You can just listen to music, the player settings are minimal, there are not even equalizers - music plays and plays itself. This is the time for us to take advantage of switching the image from the display to the projector, let's do it. As if by magic, the image is transferred to the nearest wall, you see the same player. Let's play a little with focusing - well, now everything is very clearly visible. What do you pay attention to first? First of all, the sound quality is unrealistic for such a portable device. True, at first I only listened with surprise, not understanding how this was possible - the sound was loud, voluminous, powerful, and very good. Although the speaker seems to be one. In short, it is surprising and incomprehensible how such an effect was achieved, but listening to music without headphones is really very pleasant. And in headphones, however, too - the quality is at its best here, compared with the Samsung YP-P3, in some ways it will be more interesting. Some sorcerers.

But now let's take some file and watch a video, because it is clear that this is what the gadget is intended for in the end. To begin with, I downloaded a very tricky file to the memory card, this is a series of the series "House Doctor" downloaded using a torrent, then converted for XPERIA. That is, a rather furious thing for a device that has a rather limited set of codecs and supported formats. However, the device handled it easily. Well, how does this machinery work. The image is projected, of course, anywhere, but it is best to use some kind of white surface. With all due respect, this thing cannot be taken seriously, therefore, there can be no talk of buying a special screen, installing it in the right place and other tricks. A piece of white cardboard is enough, and white wallpaper, white furniture, a white book or a white T-shirt will do - in general, you understand. By moving the projector away or away, you can adjust the size of the image so you need to focus. Empirically, it was found that the effective distance is a little more than a meter, while the image on the wall approximately corresponds to a fifteen-inch monitor. This, of course, is about the size, you can more or less normally adjust the focus and watch your movie.

Food

I will only note that it is too early to talk about the operating time, this is not a standard "excuse" of a journalist - a lot of things have changed since I got acquainted with the first samples of the device. Including connector. And a battery. Accordingly, I will be careful not to draw any conclusions about the working time of commercial samples for our country. The device is already being sold somewhere, but it may well turn out that if it appears in our country, then a different version, without a TV antenna and DMB functionality, there may be other changes. The fact is that I used the MBP-200 https://cars45.com.gh/drmaOgfMT3a5cGaXyn9jVhJZ with the charger plugged in all the time, I will notice that the projector gets quite warm during operation.

Conclusions

Well, let's think about what the prospects for such a toy might be. Watching films "on the wall" is curious, there is scope for ideas. You can seat the child where it is usually impossible to seat - what's the difference that this is not a screen, but wallpaper with a pattern, it's still interesting. You can plug in headphones at night and watch a movie yourself by putting a screen replacement somewhere - everything is better than behind the iPhone screen. It can be used as an "entertainment", for example, record a movie about some zombies or something erotic with bondage elements and carefully include it in the company. Here it is also interesting that it is difficult to determine the source of the sound the first time, the volumetric effect affects. In general, the toy is attractive. The price, however, can be off-putting. For example, I found such a site where a very similar thing, even outwardly, is sold, the price at the level of three hundred euros is pleasantly refreshing, for a toy, even if it is complex, it is painfully expensive. If you are counting on working with office documents, then it’s better to forget about this matter right away, as I said, it doesn’t work. There are films and music. You do realize that there are hundreds of much better devices for watching videos, right?

The main conclusion is simple: this thing is from the same series as megaglasses that can replace a cinema, but you won’t find real, living owners in the afternoon with fire.
