This is a fairly large unit especially when using the stand. When using the stand, the unit is about 9" across and up to 18" down. So, be sure you have the space.
When using the stand and projecting on to the table, you must turn the lens up and down within its holder to get your image sharp. It isn't a smooth turn but once you get used to it, it isn't difficult to do. So, there is a lot of variability in the clarity of the image depending on the size of the image you are using and moving the lens unit up and down. Using it on the table top, your image is naturally limited in size. Using the unit without the stand, your image can be a lot bigger when projected on the wall. So far, a 4" x 6" photo seems to work best. The better your photo too, the better the image. So, old black and white or sepia photos have a bit less clarity.
The service from Madison was very fast and the machine arrived intact.
This machine does exactly what it says which is to project an opaque image onto a surface such as a wall or a table. The image itself looks nearly just like the image you are projecting, certainly enough to catch the outlines and features of the subject.
