Go Baby Mobile iPhone 4 DLP Projector review

Our Rating :
Price when reviewed : £130

A fantastic accessory for watching or presenting videos on trips, but it needs more controls


640×360 resolution, 12 ANSI lumens, 20x64x120mm, 105g

Although you get a focus wheel and volume controls, you don’t get a keystone control to create a square image when the unit’s projecting at an angle. You don’t get a means of angling it, either. This is irritating if you’re in a hotel room or bedroom where you’re short on mounting points. This means you may have to prop it up using books, toiletries and whatever else you have available and suffer the keystoning effect.

Go Baby Mobile says you can project up to 60ins, and you can certainly get away with sizes approaching that in a dark room and still get decent, watchable image quality.

Go Baby Mobile iPhone 4 DLP Projector

Sound is played through the projector’s built-in 2W speaker. This isn’t too bad because it does have a little more bass than the iPhone’s speaker, but when the projector’s connected you can’t use the iPhone’s 3.5mm headphone jack. This means you can’t route audio to a set of active speakers, for instance.

At £130, the Go Baby Mobile iPhone 4 DLP Projector seems expensive, but it’s a high-quality and well-designed device that’s a great accompaniment on business trips and holidays. We’d like to see a keystone control and some kind and an adjustable stand, but we like the projector even without them. Closer integration with catch-up TV services would be good, too, as would a higher resolution.

If you have a large collection of standard definition videos on your iPhone and travel a lot or want to view it at 60ins, this is the projector for you.
