This projector works very well once the film is properly threaded. Like the other review said this projector is an auto load and is very finicky sometimes. I haven’t tried their tip of holding down the red button it I have had success with keeping the side cover removed whilst threading just so I can make sure the leader is going in properly and if i can see that it’s not then I stop and rewind immediately to salvage as much of the leader as possible. Mine didn’t come with a film clipper so I just used a new fingernail clipper to trim the edge so it’s slightly curved. Once threaded through ok I put the cover back on and start the projection. I think the picture and sound quality is pretty good though I don’t have too much experience with other projectors so not much to compare it to. Just make sure you always have a nice size leader on all your films before trying to auto thread them into the machine and you should be good to go!
This projector is an autoload projector, which means great care must be taken when loading it and films must have plenty of leader. Sometimes, the projector will decide not to play the film and fold it up like an accordion just inside the loading gate. Pushing the red trigger on the top down as far as it will go appears to help avoid this, even though it already depresses when the projector is in "thread" mode. The sound is decent, and it has a 3.5mm out, which will make recording audio out extremely easy. The speed control is great, since it not only allows for 18 or 24 fps, but it is infinitely variable within that. Finally, the brightness of the projector is a little underwhelming, presumably due to the bulb being 8v instead of 24v and the inclusion of a 4 blade shutter.
