Wowwee Cinemin Swivel review

 

Wowwee doesn't just do a line in clever, if somewhat bizarrely named, robots. Nope, the people behind the Joebot are also at it with pico projectors. First spied earlier this year, the Wowwee Cinemin Swivel is at last up for grabs, letting you slap...

Small body, bundled iPod adapter

Swivel feature feels gimmicky, doesn't compare well to other pico projectors

A decent enough pico projector, but it can't live up to its rivals

The first time we saw a pico projector some of us thought: "Err... What's the point?" Slide show presentations from your phone? Doubt it -- not powerful enough...

WowWee Cinemin Swivel review: WowWee Cinemin Swivel

 

WowWee Cinemin Swivel

Compact pico projector with 480x320-pixel resolution (HVGA); swivel design; integrated speaker; quiet operation; rechargeable battery delivers up to 2 hours of battery life; protective carrying case included, along with adapters for iPod/iPhone and...

Not terribly bright or sharp picture, particularly when you expand the screen size; speaker could be louder; VGA adapter not included.

Though its spec sheet doesn't quite measure up to that of competing pico projectors, the WowWee Cinemin Swivel's unique design and its inclusion of an adapter for iPhones and iPods make it an appealing choice.

Review: WowWee Cinemin Swivel pico projector

 

Designed primarily as an Apple accessory, the Cinemin Swivel pico projector displays colorful iPod and iPhone images right out of the box.

The Cinemin Swivel permits you to deliver an iPod presentation or show an iPhone video right out of the box, thanks to the bundled iPod/iPhone 30-pin adapter; other pico projectors require an extra-cost, third-party cable. If your main goal is to use a...

For users with a primary need for video, particularly as a companion for an iPod or iPhone, the Cinemin Swivel pocket projector can be an excellent fit.

WowWee Cinemin 8410 Swivel Pico Projector

 

Great product. While I cannot compare to other TI tech projectors, I just got mine in the mail from Amazon, and the cinemin nearly rivals my tv's picture quality. It's really impressive, and a kick to watch on the ceiling.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great piece of machinery

 

If you swivel the unit up, or turn it to its side, the displayed image will distort a bit - Turning the swivel up 45 degrees results in my movie being distorted into an upside down trapezoid when played against a vertical wall. It doesn't bother me,...

It puts up a great image: there's a focus wheel that allows you to fine tune the image that comes up ; It's SMALL! I knew it would be, but it was still a stunner when I opened it up ; Built in speaker isn't too bad ; Plug and play into my ipod after a...

Gets a little warm ; if you jiggle the connection a little, the screen goes crazy ; The room needs to be pretty dark for a good image (but I had anticipated this)
