This is a revolutionary product — a very usable portable projector. It is decently bright; can work for hours on battery; can sit nicely on most surfaces and also comes with a standard tripod screw hole. It comes with Android 7.1, so it works as a portable smart TV on its own. It can also mirror screens of cell phones (I tested both IOS and android) and computers through wifi and bluetooth. Therefore, it has a very convenient and truly wireless setup. There is simply no other non-Anker/Nebula portable projector available today (Jan 2018) in its league.
Compared to the WOWOTO T8e, Nebula made a great set of compromises on a truly portable device
After comparison to the WOWOTO T8E: Bumping up one star. I wish I could settle at say, 3.75 stars. I really want a bit more ANSI lumens (200 would be solid); and 720P. But Anker/Nebula clearly balanced a lot of choices in the design here. Internal apps also need work, and we need Google Play Services stat. I also think Netflix needs a tweak to support higher resolution streaming as it seems to settle on 480p and lower bitrate than I’d like and I find connecting my phone via HDMI results in a better Netflix experience.
I’m keeping it, but…
The stripped-down version of Android is a real bummer, I must say. Kills the potential of this projector. It’s still better than all the other mini models, but it also costs a lot more, too, so I was hoping for more.
Amazing little device
This will save you a lot of research… I’ll address some of the “pitfalls” that others have mentioned in their initial reviews first and then will tell you how much I like this device.
This little projector is amazing! After you unlock the full Google experience! Takes 5 minutes.
This little projector is amazing! With the help of Adam at Anker I had the google app store up and running in 5 minutes. Now, this thing is a full functioning android projector! Go to ABOUT in the settings menu and CLICK ON THE ANDROID VERSION 5 TIMES in a row. A password window comes up, input a password you must obtain from Anker…… then click DONE and OK. You will be presented with a new download. Say yes and download it. After it finishes it will reboot. When it reboots you will have full google apps including the google play store. To access the play store go to APP MANAGER on the home menu and you will see the play store and all the other google apps. This addition made the capsule a truly amazing device! Anker customer support is great. Adam was very helpful and they answer the phone right away.
Excellent so far…
Been using it for a week so far and i’m pretty happy with it. size is small but has a nice weight to it. well built. it is bright enough even with some lights on. User interface is very easy to use and navigate. Remote is decent enough but would have been so much better if they used bluetooth, as it is it needs line of sight in order to work but they do have a phone app available for iphone and android. would have like to see more i/o ports. only has one micro usb to charge and a full size HDMI. All in all this is a great little projector to use ANYWHERE, but specially when traveling on vacation or camping. it projects a good picture even on a gray wall 5 feet away. the speaker is so much better than any other Pico projectors, personally I have tried 4 others with similar form factor. this is not a bose speaker but it is very good to watch any movie. not much of a bass but i’m sure it is phisically impossible to get anything better in such small space. I also looked at getting at their own nebula protective case but after close inspection I ended up paying half that for a superior case from hermit shell brand with a much better accessory layout, just don’t stick the remote all the way in or it may be hard to get it out.
A little projector that packs a punch!
Bought this for my wife for her birthday. She wanted a projector in the bedroom to cast upon the ceiling. I was all over getting this for her! After doing research and looking at a lot of different mini projectors, nothing even came close to the awesomeness that this thing portrayed. When it arrived and we got it all hooked up and running, we weren’t disappointed in the slightest. We purchased the tripod stand with it and it does exactly what we wanted it to do.

I did not expect to have any particularly spectacular brightness level or image quality, but just wanted something portable to throw up on the wall in my bedroom. I was very impressed with how bright and sharp the image is. Works perfectly for my use which is mainly PS4/Nintendo Switch. The interface is very simple and it comes with an app to use your phone as a remote. This thing is totally worth the cost.
When I first saw the Nebula Capsule, I knew I had to own one. All the specs seemed to be sufficient, so I figured I would give it a go. If you plan to use this to project on your ceiling, I suggest buying the tripod. Especially if you are using the HDMI from another device as your input source.
