This is *almost* a great value, but unfortunately, after some heavy use, there are several big limitations that move this into a "do not buy" for me.

You''ve probably heard all of the good things. Small, portable, some apps, somewhat usable built in speaker, bt connectivity, etc. Those are all true. It''s not the brightest or 1080, but it seems like it would be great for simple, fun family use.

However:

1.) While the projector is 720p the built in Netflix app (and any side-loaded app) will NOT DISPLAY MORE THAN 480P. It''s not a certified device I guess? But whatever the reason, you CANNOT stream Netflix HD. Huge deal breaker.

2.) Well no problem! Just plug in a laptop or Roku to the HDMI in! Yes... except the HDMI presents about a 1 to 2 second audio lag no matter the source. Completely unusable.

3.) I could never get the Nebula Connect phone app to work. Connected both to the same Wi-Fi and paired them via BT but they would never communicate.

All in all that makes this projector good for... well basically emergency boardroom PowerPoint projections where audio isn''t a necessity and that''s about it.

If Anker can fix those giant glaring issues (seriously how can you advertise it''s HD and then the streaming apps are gimped to SD?!) then it would instantly go to a value that''s definitely worth the price.

This projector is AWESOME, but there are definitely some tricks to getting the best out of it.

I''ve had the Mars 2 for about 1 month at this point, and have used it about 10 times, so I''m not writing a review after my first use. I''ll list everything out separately below, for ease of searching.

PICTURE - When I ordered, I was worried about the projector only being 720p, instead of 1080p, and was afraid I would get a "Screen Door" effect, but 100% I did not. When you are playing a movie, there is absolutely no way to tell it''s not 1080p.
**If you are going to watch Netflix directly from the Mars Android as an App, you are NOT going to get a HD picture, as Netflix limits the Android App to 480p. I know this because I thought the picture looked fuzzy for a good two weeks, before I figured this out. The easiest work around for me was to use a Fire Stick and run Neflix through that. Once you do that, it''s a night and day difference with the picture.**

BRIGHTNESS - It absolutely is 300 ANSI Lumens. There is a bid difference between Lumens and ANSI Lumens, so make sure you look for ANSI Lumens when you are shopping for projectors.

PORTABILITY - It has a handle and a battery. It doesn’t get much more portable than that.

EASE OF USE - The mars runs an Android OS, which makes it pretty uncomplicated. There is an remote included, which is very good, and there are also controls on the top of the machine, which give full functionality. There is also the Nebula Connect app, which allows you to use your phone screen like a mouse pad, and also gives you keyboard functionality. The app is OK, but can sometimes be laggy or have difficulty connecting. That being said, it’s in no way a huge issue, just reconnect, and all is fixed. The link below is for a touchpad/keyboard controller that works with my PS4, MARS 2, Fire TV, and maybe works better than the official remote.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06X9J8NG4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Audio - The two 10w speakers work great for a small room, but if you’re watching outdoors or in a larger room you may need an external speaker. If you plan on using a bluetooth speaker, just know that there is going to be about a 1 second delay between audio/video. As of right now there isn’t software on the MARS II to fix the audio/video over bluetooth. That being said, if a speaker is connected by cable, it syncs perfectly. Also, if you use apps like Kodi, they have a feature to allow you to manually fix the issue.

Customer Service - So I called about the Bluetooth issue, and spoke with Kevin (I think, but it was over a week ago) who was great. I expected to be on/off the phone in 10 mins, without actually getting an answer, but our call lasted 45 minutes. While there is no current fix, they did work to give me access to the Google Play store to beta test it. I very much like the fact that I can call customer service, and speak with a live, us based person within 5 minutes of dialing the phone.

Overall: The projector is perfect for a movie night, either indoors or outdoors. The resolution and portability you get for the price, make the MARS 2 absolutely worth it!

What I was looking for:

I hate televisions. To me, televisions are a big, black rectangle that sit in your living room and you end up structuring the layout of your living room around the television. I’ve been dreaming of a TV-free living room for a while now… not because I want to watch less TV or play less games or anything - just because I don’t want to own a physical TV.

So this projector was designed to be my TV replacement, and I was willing to put up with a lot to make that vision happen.

---
About our setup:

The projector is stored in / on a little side table unit. It’s effectively invisible when it’s been put away. This was far and away the most important thing for me. I pop it on the coffee table when it comes out each evening. It usually has an HDMI cable and the power running out the back.
The projector projects upwards at a fairly sharp angle above our fireplace. This introduces keystone artifacts, but they’re not too bad. The autofocus feature is very, very good.
The projector sits about 4 feet from the projection surface and creates a large image. At 6 feet or ten feet the image is huge. (I haven’t measured it, sorry.)
---

The pros:

* It’s summer right now, and we leave all the shades open in the living room. It doesn’t get dark until 9:30ish. We will start watching TV at 7, and while it’s by no means a perfect image because of all the ambient light, it’s definitely not unwatchable. The image quality only gets better as it gets darker, and when it’s dark out I find myself blown away by the strength of the image. We frequently leave lights on, but, like all projectors, this thing definitely shines when the space is as dark as possible.
* The sound is loud!
* The portability is great. The projector frequently travels to different rooms in our condo. Running it off the battery at full power kind of feels like magic.
* Playing games. I’m a casual gamer, and it’s so fun to play my Nintendo Switch on this thing. I haven’t noticed any lag.
* The image is 720p, and that can be pretty damn crisp. I’m not one to get all that excited about ultra HD.

The cons:

* Software. The Youtube app doesn’t currently let you log into your account. (Nebula said they’re fixing this). The Netflix app can’t play HD content, because of some kind of hardware signing issue. I even side-loaded the newest Android Netflix app and it didn’t make a difference. I don’t think there’s a workaround here. So, for the best experience you’ll probably want to connect an Apple TV or similar (we had one lying around from 2012. It works great.)
* I know I said I’m happy with the brightness - but I feel like it could have been just a touch brighter. I’d been following the Mars I for quite a while and was disappointed to see that the projection brightness had been reduced for the Mars 2.
* The sound is loud, but not that high quality. Not distractingly bad or anything - it might be a bit too heavy on the bass.

[EDIT]: Nebula''s support is fantastic. They''ve been super responsive to questions about the product, and really helpful each time. Shout-out to Wendy for all your help!!

The Good Stuff
Video quality is great when there is very low ambient light in the room, and the projected image is bright (a daylit scene, for example). The audio quality from the built in speakers is descent, considering their size.

However, there are three major flaws which I wish I had know about before my purchase.

1. Audio Lag
There is no lag when playing videos via the built in Youtube app, but when videos are played through HDMI the audio lags about 0.25 seconds. When videos played through HDMI and via Bluetooth the audio lags about 0.7 seconds. I have tested this with a variety of devices HDMI and Bluetooth devices with the same result (tested HDMI input via Chromecast Ultra and cable to laptop, and tested Bluetooth output to Yamaha YAS-107 soundbar and Aukey Latitude headset).

2. Nebula Connect
The Nebula Connect app often takes several minutes and attempts to connect to the projector, and often fails to connect at all. Problem occurs with Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2XL but not with iPhone X.

3. Low Brightness
Details in dark images (photos/video) disappear (tested in a pitch black room, projecting onto white wall).

I like my Mars 2, and I''ll get some good use out of it, but if I''d done my homework and been aware of these issues before the purchase, I don''t think I''d have made the purchase.

This thing is fantastic.

A bit of background for more than a decade I’ve had a dedicated home theater projector setup in my home... Mostly Panasonic equipment over the years... I recently moved to a property with a rooftop deck... and was interested in this device to create the opportunity for movies under the stars... and this thing delivers.

Keep in mind this device has its limitations... its meant for complete/near darkness... it won’t be very effective at all with the lights on... but it performs fine on a dark night with some minimal ambient light from my neighborhood...

Speakers are more than adequate for this type of setup. Android can be updated. Has the streaming apps I need (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, YouTube). One downside is that while it supports chromecast and airplay, it won’t play any copyrighted material via those mechanisms... but I have an HDMI adapter for my iPhone that I’ve used to play material from my iTunes library...

Perfect size & portability.

iPhone Remote App improves the overall experience.

Great job Nebula/Anker!

I have owned projectors since 2009 and had many that range from very high end to very low end. I have a JVC NX7 / RS2000 coming very soon as well as a Da Lite High Power 2.8 gain 120" so I know what a good picture is suppose to look like. I also have many asian pico projectors that I have been trying over the years. Many of these projectors even have faster processors, ram and ROM space than the Mars, but that is all meaningless is you don''t have the software to back it up. The Mars II is buttery smooth and responds to all commands very quickly. Other projectors normally fail in this regard when trying to use the home button on a resource intensive app. Also many of the pico projectors are strictly SVGA / XGA or some form of this resolution. The picture with text is very pixelated that smooths out a little when watching cinema quality content. This picture however is extremely lacking at usually a high price tag (~$100-$300) It simply isn''t worth the trouble. Go with a reputable company that be there when things go wrong and will actually update their devices as time goes on. I have had nothing but things to say about all the Anker products I own (which is a lot). They are all very high quality and so far none of them have broken yet (except a battery charger that I dropped, but still functions though the indicator button is busted now)

Pros

* Compatible with all the apps I require:
* Youtube
* Hulu (Updated versions of this require Google Play Services)
* MX Player (This is broken on many Chinese projectors)
* Emby
* VRV (This is RARELY compatible with other android devices)
* Netflix
* Kodi
* Xfinity Stream
* Very bright image, easily viewable on an off-white color wall
* Auto keystoning / focus
* Very long battery life (usually lasts a movie of 1h30 to 2h)
* Excellent customer support with potential access to early beta builds
* Aptoide version of Play Store is superior to any Chinese variants you''d find in other small projectors
* Ability to side-load apps
* HDMI in has auto switching that will sense an HDMI signal and switch over to it
* Buttons on the actual unit so remote is not required
* Nebula Connect App lets you control the projector with your phone
* Casting from a OnePlus 6 just works WITHOUT the need for any other software (This is not the case for ANY other projector I have tried - usually Miracast or some other form of app is needed, and the app is not native, so it is slow and only works much like Google casting, where it must be a compatible video from a service like Youtube, rather than the desktop. I cannot stress enough how rediculous this has become - for some projectors I have tried nearly 10 programs, which all fail to do even the most basic of streaming well. With the Mars II I have streamed with Wi-Fi direct video games, such as Sonic Dash | To do this go to Settings -> Display -> Cast [at the bottom of the list]. Also under Settings -> Wi-Fi -> Advanced -> Wi-Fi Direct, select the ''NebulaXXXX'' device.)

Cons

* Fan can be noisy compared to other small form factor projectors (it becomes more in-audible the louder the movie is, if playing content at even 1/4 max volume it will drown out the fan. This is to be expected with the amount of lumens this thing puts out)
* Carrying strap is not detachable or hide-able (would be nice to have it depress into the unit so it doesn''t look so tacky while in use or not needed)
* Google Play Services is not available on the base firmware (this is needed for a lot of apps, which makes them un-usable without it)
* Mouse mode on the remote control is cumbersome, you must press the button and then move the cursor with the directional pad. A better alternative to this is to buy a USB remote that allows you to point at the projector screen in order to move the mouse, this is much more intuitive. This is what I use: https://www.amazon.com/Backlight-Wireless-Controller-3-Gsensor-Projector/dp/B076BRLHZT. However, if you simply use the Nebula app, which has a mouse mode by moving the screen this works your finger over the screen - this works just as well.

The customer service is fantastic. I sent a message to them about a firmware update to address the issue with Google Play Services, and even on a weekend they got back to me within hours. They allowed me into their beta program and so far the new firmware is great. Thanks very much to Helen for assisting me in this matter, she has gone above and beyond in making sure I was satisfied with my purchase.

Overall this is the best projector for the small form factor market I have tried. I currently have 5 projectors and 4 of them are small form factor. This one is superior to them all by a mile. Best of all, these projectors use LEDs which has lamp hours in the 10s of 1000s. Basically, you will never need to replace the lamp (you can''t you will just need to buy a new projector) unless you watch it 24 hours a day for the next 3.5 years. With my new JVC projector coming the lamps normally last 3000-4500 hours in which you will need a replacement which will cost us around $800, nearly twice the price of this entire projector!

NOTE: The video / images are not accurate to what you will see in person (it looks much better) but I hope it gives people some better clue of what to expect!

To say that I''m happy with my purchase would be a massive understatement!

I''ve been researching portable projectors for a long time. Community movie night has been discussed a lot but never happened. My goal for 2018 was to change that. After reading a bit on WireCutter about the differences between projectors and seeing what they recommended, I settled on the Mars II.

This projector is super easy to setup, taking a few minutes. The controls are very intuitive and responsive. The autofocus and keystone correction work great and is super fast. It is amazingly light and you can easily move it around and see how it performs on various surfaces and sizes. I''ve watched several shows and it is still showing a full charge, so the battery life seems to be very good (I haven''t had a chance to run it all the way down and see how long it actually lasts).

As for content, the easiest way seems to be to just log into the apps on the projector. Streaming YouTube from an iOS device is flawless, but it won''t stream from DirecTV Now or HBO due to copyright reasons. I''m going to do some more testing with the HDMI connector to the iPhone and iPad, but I anticipate they will work just fine -- having something wired will definitely prevent hiccups in playback if there are other devices on the wifi network. I saw some skipping once when I was casting from my phone via VLC. For movie night I''m planning to just plug the phone into the projector via HDMI, just in case.

The built-in speakers are pretty good and totally usable for small groups. I''m not sure how loud they''ll be if you have a larger group with some people deciding to chit chat. The connection to bluetooth headphones was super quick and easy and I''m still waiting to try the headphone jack with some external speakers.

I''m waiting for my screen to arrive and I have a feeling that the picture quality will be vastly improved versus just projecting onto a white wall. Once we have our official movie night I will update this review with any other observations.

The only thing that didn''t work right out of the box was the physical remote. It wasn''t really an issue since I have the app on my phone and the buttons on the projector are super convenient. I reached out to Anker to ask them if there is a way to reset the remote to the projector and the customer service rep very helpfully gave me some things to try and, when those didn''t work, told me that she was sending out a replacement and that I''d have it within the week. Great customer service as well!!

Couldn''t be happier with my purchase and would buy one again in a heartbeat. I''ve been showing the projector to friends and family and everybody has been super impressed and a couple people are even going to buy their own!!

When I got the package projector came with few scratches on lens cover don''t know if it used or brand new and one more thing to add this projector does not fit regular tripods you need to buy Anker tripod designed for this projector which costs abt 10k shipped to India or you need to modify with rubber seals at the bottom to use with regular tripods ..., Best alternative Xgimi CC Aurora, Xgimi Mogo Pro or the philips one which is coming out soon.

This is the first time I’m giving an anker product 4 stars instead of 5, not that it’s bad, I just think there could be a few improvements. So I bought this along with AAXA P7 mini just to compare, and I’m gonna quickly summarize the pros and cons of P7, just cuz I think there might be other ppl on the same boat as me trying to research about this, all these points are relative to the Mars II, and for my own preference P7 Pros: brighter, smaller in size, comes with tripod, theoretically better resolution, native 1080p P7 Cons: no wifi, no Bluetooth, fan is noticeably louder, no lid cover for lens, remote has too many buttons TL;DR version of Mars II: the 2 major flaws that made me give it a 4 stars are: lack of horizontal keystone autocorrection, and in-app cursor movement delays. everything else is either very good, good enough, or no big deal with easy workarounds. Mars II is a “smart projector”, u can stream Netflix, youtube, twitch etc. on wifi, while connecting to separate speaker via Bluetooth, but its own speaker is quite loud, so unless u have a professional stereo system, I would stick to just using its own. I didn’t test P7’s speaker, so can’t really comment on that. Fan is very quiet, u have to really listen for it, but then this could be because its brand new, who knows. The lid cover for lens not only keeps the lens clean, it also acts as a power button, slide it down to auto turn on, slide it up to auto turn off, very convenient. The remote is very simplified, easy to use, but the infrared receptor is at the back, u don’t have to point to it directly, but just make sure theres enough space behind it. I put it on the floor by my reclining couch, there was about few inches of space in between, I couldn’t use it while lying down on the seat and holding it in my hand, I had to reach forward and point down towards that general direction. But when I’m lying in bed, I put it beside my shoulder ish, with nothing behind it, I can use the remote just fine, I didn’t have to pull my arm back to aim at it. The resolution is theoretically better on the P7, native 1080p, altho I didn’t test it, so I didn’t see the difference, but Mars II 720p is enough for me when I watch Netflix on it, the brightness is also enough, the picture shows how it looks in the middle of the day, with the blinds about 90% shut. The keystone/focus autocorrect functionality works good 90% of the time, but sometimes focus doesn’t auto adjust properly, and u just have move the device around a bit, set it back down, and let it auto adjust again, usually only takes one try, it’s a workaround, and not the biggest deals, but I do like P7’s manual focus adjust, u can do it so quickly to crystal clear. And as for the keystone correction, it works fairly well, but only vertically, horizontally it does nothing, as u can see in the picture. however u CAN manually adjust both directions in settings, but it’s a bit of a hassle, and its still hard to get it to be the perfect rectangle, the horizontal setting maxed out at -40, so u should ideally place it in the middle of ur screen/wall, and let it do its vertical auto adjust. That brings to my next point, while it does have a hole on the bottom for tripod, it doesn’t come with a tripod, so if u want a certain viewing height, u need to do trial and error with some books to change the angle of projection. Have not tested out the battery yet, so can’t say how long it would last, and it would also depends how loud the volume is, and if u have Bluetooth connections up, but one good thing is, u can watch w.e u want while charging it, so that’s definitely a plus that I saw some other projectors didn’t have. Lastly the app, while it’s easy to set up, the cursor movement delay is definitely not user friendly at all, I rather use the remote even tho on Netflix, if u use remote to select shows, it doesn’t highlight it or nothing, so u can only guess by pressing left or right to see the information “i” bubble for that show light up, then u know where ur remote locked in, but to be fair, they do tell u the remote isn’t compatible with Netflix and recommend u to use the app, so for something that’s not compatible, still being able to maneuver around in it is good enough for me. The only thing the app is good for is when u have to enter in texts, for example passwords for wifi or apps. And as for phone screen mirroring, it does what it does, works pretty well, only disappointment is when u play video on ur phone, it doesn’t play it in full projection size, its still the phone size.

Bought this projector in place of a tv, and it basically works: mediocre to okay. It seems to be able to screencast some things from an iPhone, and with a workaround can screencast some things (home movies, anything that is not copyright protected) from an older Mac c. 2009. However, with some fumbling, it can be used to play dvds. Perhaps most disappointing is that the projector will not play copyrighted material that is not hosted on Netflix - THINK ABOUT THAT FOR A MOMENT! Rentals purchased through my YouTube account cannot be played, e.g Charlotte''s Web (2006) put on for the kids last night was a flop - copyright issues being cited as the reason why not. I tried screen casting from the phone and from the iMac, and even directly through the YouTube app on the Mars. The message I was given was to use an HDMI to connect the computer to the projector - but this seems ridiculous when there is a YouTube app with my account info already to go in the projector. Similarly the projector will not play movies I have purchased from iTunes. I bought this projector thinking it a versatile piece of technology able to connect and view my existing library, you know, like any other TV ought to be able to do. Netflix, a mile wide and an inch deep, is sorely lacking in content to be considered as one of the few sources of content I am able to view through this projector misses the point. Had I known that I would not be able to view my library and rent through iTunes or YouTube I would not have bought this projector. Follow up (April 21/20): further attempts to use this projector to stream movies have not been successful with other platforms: Cineplex did not work, neither did the Apple store/itunes, and even renting movies through Google Play are not possible. Although this projector is built on Android, Google Play Services are not supported. I stand by my original assessment but will now drop the product a star.

UPDATE: - - anker customer service team contacted me after my review. I have to say I got a over the average after-service, wgich is kind of cool. Anker covered the software problems with a firestick sent. Firestick ecosystem works pretty good. And finally, we are watching movies :). The main reason for me to choose this projector was streaming. I got it so now things are acceptable. But no cables, one button setup is not possible yet. I am hoping for an update at some point. As a final verdict, I am happy anker is standing behind their product. - - I have been using this for over a month now. Main reason for us to buy this was streaming youtube and netflix. Youtube app does not work properly and crashes every time. Netflix has a weird, low quality version. So picture quality is very, very low. I am not impressed at all...

The only and the biggest issue with this product is getting it on. The projector keeps powering off without a reason, despite being fully charged or being connected to a power source. Updated the software and reset it back to its origin settings too. But nothing helps. And now, as the return window was set to 31 March 2020 and the cursed COVID 19 pandemic imposed a lockdown all over, I am not able to return it either.
