Ratings and Reviews
Great hardware, terrible software
Sony’s great little projector is practically ruined by the terrible user experience from badly written software. There is no separate hardware remote so you are forced to use the app for even the most basic operation such as changing the volume. Painful.
The latest version claims to allow the projector to remember and start up from the last used input. Unfortunately, while the option is shown in the app’s settings, choosing it does absolutely nothing. It is basically an outright lie! The unit will always only start up in poster mode no matter what you do. The posters are cute for about a minute after you see them for the very first time and then it is absolutely maddening because you realize just how pointless they really are.
Connect the projector to any other device and the product has a chance to shine. Like a couple of other reviewers, I use it with an Apple TV which, to paraphrase a genius, provides an experience like, “giving a glass of ice water” in Sony UI hell.
Sadly, I cannot recommend the projector at all because the experience is ruined by forcing the user to jump through hoops every time one wants to watch something. Until this bug is fixed, my unit remains off most of the time. I really wish they would fix it.
Innovative hardware, terrible app
The projector itself is nicely made. In my case the only viable solution because this app is so bad was to only use the HDMI mode connected to an Apple TV and HomePod for audio. That way, I left the projector in standby mode and used the Apple TV remote only for everything including audio.
This app is so bad I had to reinstall the app almost every single time because it just does not connect. The projector has good speakers but you need the app to control it. My only option was to bypass the app with Apple TV.
I am giving it 2 stars only because I feel bad for Sony. The hardware is truly awesome but it will flop because of the terrible app/software.
Some have complained the projector does not start up on HDMI and goes to poster mode. In my experience. I have left it on HDMI and it always starts up on HDMI. I usually just switch it on and off from the button in the front.
I wish the projector just had a remote to switch inputs, change volume and turn on and off. The app is the worst I have ever used! This could not have been developed in Japan or the US.
App is slow, lacks core functions
I love the hardware, but the software of this app is slow. I also agree with another reviewer that setting the default to HDMI is a must have requirement in the next release. I never use the poster function, since I connected the projector with an Apple TV, which has a more robust visual library.
The app also doesn't function well on multiple devices. I had it installed on my iPhone and iPad, but the projector kept hanging up, so I deleted the app from my iPhone. Both devices are the latest models.
