Works nicely with Chromecast
Works seamlessly with Chromecast and love that I can display pretty much anything from my phone. The software could get some improvements but the picture quality is good and overall happy with the purchase.

Great potential! missing iOS/macOS compatibility
Hi,
I moved to a new apartment last month and decided to buy Sony LSPX-P1 ultra short throw projector instead of a large screen TV having in mind its flexibility and portability.

Overall it is a great product !!!
However it has with some important limitations that you should be aware of:

1/ luminosity of 100 lumens (don't expect to use it during a bright day) which limit the time and place of usage, but it is perfect for a night show.

2/ no compatibility with iOS and macOS which is incredible for a product advertising on wireless feature.
@Sony, when will you release the app update?

3/ battery of 2 hours which is enough for a standard movie but still a bit short (4 hours would have been a better range).

Hopefully the next version will solve "partially" those issues, so I could finally recommand this great product.

excellent for certain use cases...
I just got mine this weekend from Amazon. Here are my first impressions and why I gave it 5 stars:

1. I had no problems with the app or set up. Everything just worked.
2. This is a beautiful piece of gear and I have it connected to an Apple TV and a pair of HomePods. I can use the Apple TV remote for all my content as well changing volume etc. I use the projector app only for the set up.
3. Auto focus, auto brightness and other settings work very well. The inbuilt speakers are at par with regular TV speakers. The focus is sharp.
4. Truly portable because of the wireless HDMI module and almost 2.5 hours of battery life.
5. The 720p resolution to me seems ok. I have a 65 inch Sony A1E 4K OLED TV and so that is our main viewing device. 1080p content looks good on this projector.
6. Ultra short throw is great and can be used anywhere.

The above are reasons I gave this 5 stars since it met my expectations. Here is what it is not. So if you buy it for the following reasons you won’t like it:

1. This is a dim projector. It cannot be used in a room with normal light beyond 32 inches in width. It is for a dark room.
2. This is not designed to be your main home theatre system because of the lower res and low light output.

Overall I love the design and ease of use. I knew the light out was low before buying so can’t complain about it.

Freedom To Share Memories Anywhere!
This is a very impressive portable projector. Right out the gate when opening up the box there is not much to the setup, a few power cords, connecting a HDMI device (optional) and downloading an app. If you have videos, pictures, or movies already installed on your smartphone you are good go! Just power the projector up, download the app, connect and get to watching movies or sharing memories. This device may only have 100 lumens, but when using this in darker setting it works great. The built in battery allowed me freedom to use a projector in settings that I would have normally had to run an extension cord across the room.
Pros:
• Super easy setup
• Contemporary look to blend into any room
• Built in quality speakers
• Battery works great and allows for freedom away from power supplies
• App is very user friendly and shows battery life right on home page
• Works well with any HDMI capable device
Cons:
• Big price tag
• Projector must be controlled by app
• Doesn’t have VGA or DVI computer inputs (Only HDMI)
• Low lumen count doesn’t allow for good viewing in well-lit rooms
Overall, I am very impressed with this Sony short throw projector and although this wouldn’t be recommended for someone who doesn’t have a ton of money to spend, but for the people looking for portability, versatility and freedom to display your memories/presentations anywhere, this is a solid choice! I can see this coming in handy during family camping trips, business meetings and company trainings. I also think it would be really cool to use at weddings to display memories. Sony did a solid job putting this one together.

A product that excels in certain scenarios
This projector works best as a portable TV. You can use it pretty much on any wall. The easiest way to use it is to set the projector at max brightness and leave it on HDMI. Then connect a video source like an Apple TV to the wireless HDMI wireless module and have the HDMI source connect to an external audio system via bluetooth. The inbuilt speakers are decent enough though for a small room. Here is what I like about this projector:

1. The 100 lumens is not bad because the projector can be placed so close to the wall. The optimal image size is around 60 inches for the light output and 768p picture quality.

2. I use a 4K Apple TV and have my source system do the scaling to 768p and use a portable AirPlay speaker for the audio. I use the Apple TV remote and I have never messed with the Sony App after the set up. The projector has auto focus and I have the stand and all key stone adjustmemts can be made by adjusting the angle of the projector on the stand.

3. The posters feature can be replicated by any number of Apple TV apps and slideshows. So you’re not missing much if you don’t use the projectors poster and slideshow feature.

4. Unlike others at this price range which are DLP, the Sony being a true laser projector has better contrast and maximizes the light output. The battery has lasted me beyond 2 hours and the projector is quiet silent.

I considered this along with the LG ultra short throws - both their 720p and 1080p ones. The Sony has better design and the stand makes it easier to use in more places. The LG 720p one supposedly has 4x the light output but in my comparison the Sony’s image was sharper and more contrasty. The LG was more washed out. I liked the 1080p LG. The image was much crisper but it is not portable and really needs a home theatre set up. It was also not bright enough for an 80 inch screen since that was the minimum size it projected at. I ended up returning both LGs and kept the Sony. The LG was better as a home theatre system (the 1080p UST) but that is not what I needed.

The one compliant is that the Sony app is fussy. Initially it was a nightmare but I decided to remove all my bluetooth devices and then reconnected and for some reason the App now works. However, as I mentioned earlier I don’t use it since I rely on the auto focus and use the button to turn on and off and Apple TV remote for everything else.

It could be a little more complex than it needs to be, but if you can figure it out it’s really excellent hardware for this size and price point. You need both the projector and stand to get the best value.

Versatile device with a lot to love!
This thing is our absolute favorite ever since we got it! We watch movies, TV shows, play games (by hooking up PlayStation) anywhere around the house. When its not in *active* use, it is displaying family collage frames or displaying art from 500px in our living room or in home office (for friends and guests).

The picture quality is impressive and extra controls (Picture Settings in the app) are great. Project it on table or wall and you'll be pleasantly surprised as far as the room/place is not too bright.

My favorites:
1) Picture quality
Preset picture setting is pretty good but if you like you can adjust to brightness, contrast, saturation, sharpness and white balance using Picture Settings in the app.
2) Screen Mirroring (Miracast)
One of the best implementations I have seen so far (smooth without a lag or interruption). This is android only, for IPhone you can use an lightening to HDMI adapter with wireless transmitter.
3) Wireless Transmitter
Makes this projector universal as it allows you to connect any of the devices you already have with it using HDMI project the content even in a different room! I have tried TV box, PS4, sound bar (passthrough) and IPhone.
4) Usability
Movies, Games, Slideshow, Art Display, Screen Mirror in the tightest spaces or table tops!

My main gripe is that the projector unit does not have any interface to external audio device (headphones/speakers). I wish and hope Sony enables bluetooth audio with firmware/software update as projector already has bluetooth capability. This would enable
private listening or use of bigger speakers for movie nights in the backyard. Please do this Sony.

Other than that, we all love this device and do hope Sony continues to push short throw technology forward.

Great mobility and Wireless connection feature
I am very happy with this product. The only thing I am not quite sure is the speed of connection between cell phone and the projector. It is not as fast as I expected.

Hand Held Projector With Impressive Versatility!
I was skeptical when I first heard of Sony's Portable Ultra Short Throw Projector, after all, its sibling was about a hundred times more expensive and debuted more as a technological proof-of-concept rather than anything the average user would ever consider getting. Therefore, how much of this technology could Sony distill down into something that was not only more affordable, but also the size of a sandwich, and do this all while boasting a rechargeable battery source, built in speaker, and the capability of Wi-fi streaming even with a HDMI device?

Well, seeing is believing! Despite the critics who state that this device only is 100 lumens bright and 720p resolution, this device can stand alone on battery-power and because of its energy efficiency actually project through an entire movie! Further, in a Wi-Fi equipped setting, the media hub allows an HDMI device such as my Xbox seamlessly stream directly to the projector.

Because of its ultra-short throw distance, even a foot of distance can translate into multiple feet of screen size when projected upright. Sure, its contrast isn't the best and you will need a dark room and light surface to view images at full color range, however for its ability to be so compact, portable, and wire-free it fits a niche of novelty electronic that you really never thought you needed, but once you've tried it, wondered how you made do without.

I foresee bedroom wall gaming, backyard movie nights, travel entertainment, and maybe even a portable office presentation. I wouldn't say that this device replaces a dedicated projector or television, but if you're looking for a battery-operated projector that performs well and is ultra compact and ultra versatile, the Sony Portable Ultra Short Throw Projector is the one to beat!

Great function and design
The design of a product is always important, and this projector certainly looks great. Very sleek and compact design. On top of the great design, this projector is very versatile. I was able to use this in my office, kitchen, basement, and even my back yard, from everything to projecting my laptop as a 2nd monitor, displaying a clock, watching tv and movies, and watching family slideshows. The only improvement I would like to see would be an improvement in the battery life. The fact in can run on battery, is great for being able to move it around but I having a better battery would give move flexibility. The image produced is very bright so viewing in brighter lights is not a problem. Fun product that will leave a lot of people in awe wondering "how are you doing that"?

Can the projector be connected to external speakers, such as a bose mini 2?
A shopper on Jul 16, 2018
  The LSPX-P1 projector isn't designed to output audio. A better solution would be to connect audio from your source device to an audio component dirctly, and only send HDMI video to the projector.
