BenQ Joybee GP2 Portable Projector Price in Singapore, Features, and Other Details

BenQ Joybee GP2 Portable Projector Price in Singapore, Features, and Other Details: The Joybee GP2 is a portable projector from BenQ. Not only does it project using LED, which means no occasional expensive lamp replacements, it is also small and light and a descendant to the largely successful Joybee GP1 portable projector. With this device, it’s now easier to enjoy an audio-visual experience on the go, at a cinema-wide screen at that.
The BenQ Joybee GP2 resembles a small box. It is really diminutive and can just easily fit into the palm of the hand, smaller even compared to five stacked CD cases. It weighs only 565 grams and measures 140.3 x 52.5 x 129.8 mm without the battery, or 140.3 x 93.8 x 129.8 mm with the battery. However despite of its size, it certainly packs superb utility.
The BenQ Joybee GP2 uses a DLP projection system that can throw WXGA images at a high-resolution value of 1,280 x 800 pixels. The image can be blown up to as big as 160 inches, with projection brightness as high as 200 ANSI lumens. The short throw ratio of the projector is only 1.13 meters for a 44 inches projection that means that the user only needs roughly a meter of space to enjoy a cinematic view. It also has a contrast ratio of up to 2400:1 and display colors of 1.07 billion dots. This means that the projected image has a refined and vivid color, not to mention well-defined texts.

As mentioned, the BenQ Joybee GP2 uses a lamp that is 3LED, which packs 20,000/30,000 hours of utility in normal or economic mode that means that it can last more than ten years with a usage of 8 hours per day. Unless this parameter is met, this means that the projector lamp virtually doesn’t need replacement in a span of a lifetime. Also, as mentioned, the battery can be detached that adds to its portability. With the battery fully charged, the device can offer up to three hours of mobile cinema.
Another great feature about the BenQ Joybee GP2 is that it contains within it virtually every port under the sun. It has an HDMI 3.1 port for connecting with a large HD display; has a 15-pin D-sub computer in; as well as a composite video in. It has one audio mini jack, one audio L/R in, one audio out mini jack, a USB type A, and a USB type B. The presence of these USB drives enables the user to directly plug into a computer using a USB cable instead of a D-sub. It even contains one card reader slot and an internal memory of up to 2 GB, with 1.3 GB of it for user usage. The user can just transfer his or her file into the mini projector and doesn’t need to bring the CDs or laptop whenever one needs to travel light.
But what probably is the most highlighted port of the BenQ Joybee GP2 and which makes a major difference compared to the GP1 is the presence of an iPod/iPhone universal dock. And because it’s a universal dock, it is also compatible with other smartphones, tablets, and media players. Another interesting feature is the presence of a personal speaker system.
The BenQ Joybee GP2 needs to be only put in standby mode, and can instantly channel music directly from, say, an iPod to its speakers. The projector can recognize a variety of file formats, can be programmed in 28 different languages, and it has a rather stylish user interface. The interface is elegant and is very user-friendly.
The BenQ Joybee GP2 comes in a durable filter-free engine – it is energy efficient and has an integrated Eco mode. The device is also practically effortless to maintain. It comes in a nifty box that has all the compartments you’d need to store all its accessories.
