While it may not win any best-in-show competitions, the 3M Streaming Projector combines the power of Roku with a compact projector to take your viewing parties on the road. At $300, 3M isn't trying to impress anyone in the image quality department, but Popular Science says that the picture is "absolutely good enough for most uses," and "in a dark bedroom, it looks really pretty good." CNET found the "image quality ranges from acceptable to mediocre," and Ars Technica says the 3M projector "looks great in very low-light rooms given the right type of wall" but warns "if you've got knockdown drywall texture and big windows letting in lots of light, this projector doesn't stand a chance." 3M's Streaming Projector shouldn't be your main video source for big movie nights, but the included Roku Streaming Stick makes it a good option for a kid's play room or den. Just make sure you get some speakers for it, as Digital Trends says the sound "was only good enough to let you hear, just barely, what was being said on-screen."
