Stop squinting and just lean back to enjoy your favourite content on the Anker Nebula Capsule 3 Laser—displaying 300 ISO Lumens of brightness in 1080p HD.
The manual said to charge to full first and pleased to say that was just ten minutes. Setup went through some basic positioning and then on to setting up Android TV. What an amazingly simple process, all driven from your Google App on your phone.
All that was with the living room lights on and the screen was perfectly clear for that. Obviously challenged by the bright ambient light but I was surprised still by how good it was.
Quickly added Amazon Prime Video and picked Avatar. Lights out and…. oh wow! 300 ISO lumens and it’s this good? I’m so so happy it’s turned out so wonderfully sharp and bright and the colours are so vivid. Further context, I usually watch on an OLED TV so I’m quite judgemental. No complaints here!
Having read so many projector reviews whilst waiting for today I can say that no rainbow effect (wasn’t sure what to expect to be fair) and the detail at 1080P is just so sharp. Watching the credits roll up the screen and the text is pin sharp. The auto adjustments are such a boon, none of that zoom and twiddle the keystone. All done for you, fabulous!
The audio is great too. I have a number of Bluetooth speakers from Bose, and Marshall and was wondering if they would be needed but absolutely not. The Bluetooth speaker feature of this device will mean only need to pack this for trips. Room for another pair of shoes!
Anker Nebula Capsule 3 Laser Review
Here’s the icing. I’m without my projector screen tonight so this was set up and projected on a wall. And it was that good already! On my proper screen, it’s going to be more amazing.
If like me, you were wondering if 300 lumens would be disappointing or the sound would be lacking, the fan would be noisy or any other of the categories projectors are measured against then fear not. Android TV is brilliant too if you’ve not experienced that. I’m so glad it runs this OS.
I’m going to bed this eve very very pleased with this purchase. It was pricey but I wanted a laser projector and it exceeded my expectations. I’m sure it will be yours too (unless you’re money-bags and can tolerate a huge noisy lump in the living room). So compact! too Thank you Anker for a great product x (ps will you please make a nice case for it soon!)
Quick update after a few more days of use. BBC iPlayer needs to be added. Simple enough after googling how but works perfectly once done. Netflix is supported but it’s not the usual version so needs to be controlled via the Nebula mobile app. However, I had a Fire TV stick, not in use and that sorted Netflix perfectly. What’s also handy is that Plex and VLC apps are available so playing movies from your NAS or an SD Card works (I used the latter) and using a USB-C hub allows Ethernet too. I expect the Netflix point might annoy some people but it’s easily solved and to mention AppleTV and Disney are all supported. Prime too obviously.
Overall, the Anker Nebula Capsule 3 Laser is a great entertainment hub.
