To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Really cool little wave projector. This is IDENTICAL to the $20+ ones from different seller with different names printed on them here on Amazon. The remotes from other sellers may look a little different but the projectors functionality is the same. So if you don't feel like reading my full review and are pretty sure you like this style, just buy this one and save yourself a few dollars.
Whats in the box: -Projector exactly as it looks in the pictures -Remote (batteries NOT included) -Audio Male to Male cable -USB cable for power -The smell of China
Physically - The projector is very lightweight plastic. It does have 4 rubber feet and an ON/OFF switch on the bottom.
Interface - It includes a 1/8 inch audio jack, Micro USB input, Micro TF Card slot and IR remote sensor on the front.
Controls - The on board controls consist of Power, Volume up and down, Track Forward and Track Back. All of the controls on the projector itself are touch sensitive and work very well.
Functionality and Colors - This unit has 12 surprisingly bright LED's and 7 colors which you can see from the pics on the products page. There is a whisper quiet motor that moves the LED's slowly under the plastic face plate and makes a very smooth water effect. I must say that at this price I did not expect the LED's to be so bright it. Nor did I expect for the unit to have such silent operation. I have to put my ear right up next to it to hear the motor turn and even then, its dead quiet. The bowl shaped part that houses the motor and LED's can indeed tilt about 45 degrees forward toward the front controls. The first reviewer said that it did not but I assure you it does.
Built in Speaker - Another surprising thing about this unit is the built in speaker. Not only does it have 3 different nature tracks pre-installed, but it gets pretty darn loud.. Like really loud! One ocean sound, one rain forest and one bird song loop. Not anything special but for kids, pretty cool. You can use the included 1/8 inch audio cord to connect it to a media player and play whatever you want to so the possibilities are endless. You can also insert a micro TF card if you don't want to connect your phone.
Remote - Basic remote. Can control all of the projectors functionality and has good range. However you do have to point the remote directly at the projector.
Im very, very pleased with mine. I wasn't expecting to write a review like this but feel like once in a while you find something really neat for cheap and want other people to experience it. Definitely worth the money.
When I ordered this for my daughter, I figured it would just barely shine a bit of wobbly light around the room. This notion was based on the "star projector" I bought for her last Christmas, which was a total joke. But this thing is really pretty impressive. It projects the light well enough to see properly, but not so bright it keeps her awake. It also has several modes you can scroll through, colors/movement etc. It also has some nature sounds, but they are on a pretty short loop, so they get irritating and repetitive quickly (the best one seems to be the insect sounds). It also has some type of card slot that you can use to listen to your own sounds or music, but I can't figure out what type of card it uses. Overall I'm very happy with this item.
