I think I like the cloth top? Going to have to see real life pictures before finalizing that opinion.

Full HD is a welcome addition to the Nebula lineup…though it seems weird why they are keeping with such low lumens, especially when you take the normal prices into consideration…

Plus one on that, alongside a number of other products in the Anker catalogue… :laughing:

I’m definitely becoming a fan of cloth on gadgets!

So, there’s at least two people in two other countries that would buy more Anker stuff if it was available in their countries. I guess that’s all they needed to hear, we’ll be flooded by the full catalog anytime now… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Not really what I’ve been waiting for, but I do install and maintain projectors for a living, and 200 lumens is pretty weak. Useful enough in a dark room, but severely washed out with any lights on, and probably not useful during the day in a room with windows.

Yeah that’s spendy for a low-power projector. Here’s one for $299 with 3,200 lumens from Epson, a leader in the projector game:

*UPDATE: While I was looking at that projector, a Staples sales rep popped up and told me he would be happy to help me find a shredder…

What does he know that I don’t? :joy:

Was looking at similar model, Epson EH-TW490 HD, when they released the price on the Capsule II…

Searching for a projector and they want to sell you a shredder :joy:

Considered responding “Yes - how did you know?!?! I need to shred thousands of documents by 4 am. And it needs to be quiet - real quiet, so no one else in the office hears. Also, can I return it after I’m done?”

How do you convert ANSI lumens to “lumens”

200ANSI=400 lumens?500?1000???

I wish all manufacturers would switch to the ANSI lumen rating.

From what I have read it’s a much more honest and accurate assessment of the lumen output.

CNET lists the rating on this one as ANSI:

https://www.cnet.com/products/epson-vs250-3lcd-projector-portable/specs/

But Epson manufacturer page lists it as IDMS 15.4 (probably more correct than CNET, even though the general consensus is these two standards are pretty comparable).

The problem is that there are many variable affecting illuminance that aren’t exactly the same as measuring brightness. Unfortunately it’s more than the average consumer should need to know to make an informed purchase, and the only way to really know is put them side by side. Due to variations in projection tech (DLP vs 3LCD for instance), it’s nearly impossible to develop a single standard across the whole industry.

Here’s a good PCMag explainer on the topics of lumens and brightness:

And another one reviewing some tests at InfoComm

In practice, I have found the 3LCD projectors to be amazing when it comes to color and crisp even in a bright room, but I still stick in the neighborhood of 2,000+ IDMS 15.4 lumens. Considerably brighter than what the prism offers however you measure it.

Thanks for the info. I have some homework to do later :slightly_smiling_face:
