Gone are the days when going to the cinema is the only way to see a movie. Today, you can easily get a copy of your favourite movie and watch it from your cosy couch. But of course, viewing it from your laptop or TV LCD won't beat the marvellous audio-visual impact of big screens - unless you get a high-definition projector that offers pretty much the same thing.
Innovations, aiming at improving human experience, have introduced new projector models that have shrunk down in size but not on performance. Portable models, which are sleek and lightweight, make it possible for you to view movies, pictures, and games, anywhere and anytime. One of the state-of-the-art projector models you'd love to have is the AAO YG-400 Portable Mini 1080P LED Projector.
The AAO YG-400 Portable Mini 1080P LED Projector features the following specifications:

For its reasonable promotional price of $ 55.99, the state-of-the-art projector is definitely a steal. While it's brilliant for home or casual use, the projector model is not recommended for professional purposes (e.g. business presentations). The projected image may be too dim for daylight use and the texts may not be razor-sharp.
