I take it most of you have seen the projector dock for the switch?
Is this something you would want?
Personally only read about it last week and it looks amazing! The projection can go quite big before losing some fidelity and blurring out, but I want to use in my room on the nights as I’m opposite a big white wall that would be perfect for playing.
So far my only gripe would be I wish they did higher end models which can project stronger images to the point that even bright daylight wouldn’t be a problem, as I heard they compromised the power to make it affordable.
So what’s your thoughts do you think this will be big?

Good projectors are expensive.

Don't see a reason why you'd want a Switch-only projector. Get a regular projector if you want one. HDMI from the dock to projector, and you have the same result. Plus, you can also use it for other devices too, and the quality-price ratio will probably be better as well.

@Octane what really?!
I thought their maybe a reason why this has been a kickstarter project, I thought that the others could not do that?
So your saying it’s a pointless buy, that I can get better if I go for a Norma projector?

There is no reason to buy a specialty projector for this. Plug your dock into a regular projector.

At 200 lumens and 480p resolution, this is basically a $350+ toy. You can get a similar spec one for $100 or you spend a couple hundred more than this Switch dock one and get a much brighter native 1080p home unit.

Do some browsing on Amazon and pay attention to lumens and NATIVE resolution. They all support 1080p input, but they're not putting out 1080p.

@frogopus this is crazy, thanks so much for the advice I’m glad I asked!
I really want a good projector for my room and I’ve seen some in action and the quality can be amazing. I thought this one was being made as it’s switch compatible but your saying they all are anyway!
Defo will have a look if I can get better for that price I’m doing that instead! Thanks again
