The item arrived very quickly and was brought to my door within two days of placing the order. It was well packaged for its journey to me and I was very eager to try it for myself.
Upon opening the outer amazon packaging I was very surprised to find that it came in it's own branded box . Whilst being unbiased and addressing the pros and cons of the item I must say that to be honest I didnt really like the byline which is printed all over stating ' bring a romantic starry night' Considering how versatile the item is and that it could be used for a wide range of occasions- I personally feel that the box should be more generic. As the box isnt shown by the company on the selling page if purchased as a gift for a friend or family member it could be very awkward . I feel it should be branded in a different way hence the 4 stars . The product alone would have had a 5 star rating from me .
In the past I have purchased a very similar cheaper version of this item from a well known high street retailer and it was nowhere near as powerful and didnt have the added functions . This gadget is so impressive in so many different ways. It is so powerful and provides absolutely stunning ceiling displays. The colours are so vivid and not faded as you find with a lot of products of this nature. I have personally found that the lower you place the projector the better the effect is. So having it at a very low level ensures that the effect is displayed over such a large area of the ceiling.
It is also very easily connected to your mobile phone or other bluetooth devices and is able to play music directly from the devices memory card or from spotify and other well known music streaming applications. In the same way you are able to play audio books through the built in speaker and with the added function of a timer it is an ideal relaxation device to keep running until you fall asleep. The effects it creates are visually so beautiful and soothing.
The speaker is quite clear and whilst it isnt the greatest , in terms of the cost of the product it is perfectly ample for everyday use
My father passed away a month ago and whilst we were providing end of life care at home this would have been such a beautiful thing to own and provide him with comfort. I wish I had thought of it sooner.
It is quintessential to have in a small childs bedroom or in the household of children who like sensory stimulation. Although I personally feel that due to the power of the laser it should be placed out of reach of small hands as I would be concerned if they were able to bring it close to their faces that it would affect developing vision.
Overall a big thumbs up from me and other members of my family
