FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

BenQ’s JoyBee Very Cool!

Coming to your family room soon is a compact easy to use, INEXPENSIVE; LCD projector that will project images up to 80” in size. One of the problems with projectors has been the need for a screen or a white wall. According to BenQ this projector is designed to allow projections on walls in colors other than white, of course a screen will give you a better picture. The other notable aspect of this projector is the use of LCD technology rather than bulb technology. In the older projectors the bulbs were very sensitive to shock and very expensive to replace when they blew. When I was selling home theater pcs, we really liked the DLP technology due it’s astounding reliability.

The JoyBee has all the connections necessary to hook up your laptop, cable box, ipod, USB flash disk, digital camera, DVD player, Xbox etc. It is tiny, only 5.35 x 2.12 x 4.72 inches. That isn’t too much bigger that a fat paperback. It has a standard tripod connection that you could use with your existing camera tripod.

This looks like a very nice unit for only $499.00. You certainly can’t get any kind of big screen for that kind of money. It certainly seems like a product to watch. This is not a paid blog.
