1 Reason For

5 Reasons Against

Very Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the multimedia projectors of this age and spec the projector brightness range from 20 ANSI lumens to 5,500 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 460 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 35 ANSI lumens, the Genius BV180 has one of the dimmer projector brightness amongst similar spec projectors of this age.

We compared all the other 35 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Aiptek MobileCinema A50P is also worth considering.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Philips PPX3410 ($259.99) (60 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other projectors of this type and age have a built-in speaker, however the Genius BV180 does not have a built-in speaker.

It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Benq GP2 ($505.08) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Genius BV180 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other battery powered projectors that were launched more than two years ago also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Optoma DH1009 ($1,117.33) is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most battery powered projectors that have been around for more than two years do not support Full HD projection. The Genius BV180 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Philips PPX3410 ($259.99).

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Genius BV180 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the BV180 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to consider include the Aiptek PocketCinema V150W, or the Philips PPX3610 which also has a higher rating.
