It's a good projector overall, pretty bright, and comes with a lot of features. the only issue is that it does have some sync issue when I play the video through HDMI, there is a 500ms lag in the audio. hopefully, that can be updated through firmware in the future.
The android tv integration is clunky at best. When auto focus is enabled it constantly recalibrates every few minutes projecting a large white square interrupting your content. Incredibly annoying. Casting live content from my phone is horrendous. The playback is jumpy and pauses every few seconds. I am casting from the latest Google pixel and my wifi connection is running at well above speeds needed for smooth casting (457 Mbps down 63 Mbps up). The picture is clear which is another indication it's not an issue with my speeds or other devices. No problems casting to any other screen and 1 other android tv projector in the home. This is not a budget projector, it's a garbage projector.
For $600 you get just about the perfect all in one system. There are cheaper options out there, but you need separate speakers and a computer or smart tv device and it’s a pain to set up. The convenience of only having to plug in one device is great. I researched a ton of projectors and at this price point this is hands down the best you can get.
Big fan of this Nebula 1080p projector. We stream everything and all streaming services deliver content in 720 or 1080 in limited cases (Youtube TV, Sling, Hulu, Fubo, etc.) The same holds true with DirectTV, Spectrum, XFINITY, Cox, you name it cable providers. No real need for a 4k projector at this point. Maybe in 3-5 years if those providers get their act together.
We've watched 4k programs on Amazon Prime rendered in 1080p natively. Image quality is solid. 100% worth the cost. I got it on Black Friday and got a pretty good deal. Happy with the purchase.
Colors out the box lean on the cooler side but all are correctable. Good out-of-the-box autofocus with manual adjustment if needed (I've never had to use it). Keystone is good but know that your backlit area doesn't change. (IE - If you mounted it and your throw ratio is wrong you'll have light bleed).
Android 9.0 is good - Nebula connect is a little goofy but most people by now have a streaming device you can use if you don't like the UI. Nebula Connect app is solid.
Biggest gripe - lack of mounting instructions and the projector doesn't recognize it's upside down when ceiling mount. The NEBULA loading screen is upside down as is the Android loading screen. It gets corrected once the device fully loads but it looks terrible. I'll avoid people from seeing this as much as possible. It takes a device that looks over $1,000 easily and cheapens it. Expected better from Nebula.
The sound system is more than adequate for your typical user. Way better than a TV speaker system. On par with a budget soundbar....who really "needs" more? Nebula is pretty quiet with the fan. I do not notice it once we turn something on.
Ocassionally - the project is black after startup. Not sure if this an app glitch or what but the home screen doesn't load. I'm trying to reach Anker's support team.
Got the Cosmos model couple weeks back. So far amazing. Was quick to setup and download & install the needed apps a breeze using existing google/gmail account. The interface is pretty nice and intuitive. The remote & the ios nebula connect app needs a serious review though. The ios nebula connect app is somewhat sketchy & freezes up on a iPhone 12 pro. It has very limited feature set & haven't found it useful thus far - end up using remote controller always which isn't easy to navigate either.
As far the image quality on to a 100" screen is amazing in the dark. The auto focusing feature is amazing. Throw & key correction features are nice & need very little tweaks get a good & steady image on the screen. Outdoor wifi enabled streaming from natively installed apps are great. Screen mirroring of content from phone is mostly prohibited for all major streaming apps(netflix, prime, etc.,). Have to install & use those apps on the projector itself.
The unit is very quiet, image & sound quality are excellent. Easily mounts on a sturdy tripod which allows easy adjustment of throw distance, height or angle of projection on to the screen. Thought it would be nice to have a longer power cable & also ability to run on battery charge. Overall it's a great experience having the Nebula Cosmos thus far. Hope to have both outdoor & indoor fun using it in the years to come!
