Today people are spending a lot to convert their bedroom or halls in a home theater setup. You can get many smart gadgets to transform your home to experience watching movies almost like a theater hall. The basic and essential one among them is a TV or a projector. Also a projection screen or wall, a mobile/computer and some good quality home theater speakers. In this post, I will give my review about one among such gadgets, and it is JmGO E8 smart Home theater projector.
It is common among humans that most of us would like to watch a movie at a theater. Not all but many people! Especially children are much excited for the same! I think it is the most significant source of entertainment traditionally that is active even today!
Are you aware of the current trend? Actually, at present, many gadget freaks are moving towards using the projector in their homes and workplaces than regular TVs. I am also in favor of it because compact projectors are very handy. You can carry them from one place to another as compared to a TV. Also, you can project images and videos of different sizes, anywhere as per your requirement. Now think is it possible via a TV?
Why Home Theater?
Many of you might think it is a stupid activity to spend hard earned money on setting up a home theater if we are having a good option of a Cinema hall. But do you know about more than 70 percent of the entertainment lovers are having either big screens or home theater speakers in their home!
Do you still feel that all of them are hopeless? Let me tell you, and they are not! They are smart and finding an alternative to a cinema hall. Are you still against the people who are installing a home theater setup at their home? Then you should read further to know more!
How many people do you know those have not seen any movie in a cinema hall at least once in their life? No one or very few! At least for me, it is no one. Since whatever friends and family members those I know. All are interested in watching movies on theater halls or at least seen a film in a cinema hall once in their life.
An Alternative to Cinema Hall
I also know some people who are not interested in visiting a theater hall currently to watch any movie or so! When I investigated this fact and tried to uncover the reason behind it, then I found one thing common in their feedbacks. It is about their experience at a cinema hall!
It is not other but the noise and disturbance that they feel every time whenever they use to watch a movie in a cinema hall. I can understand it! Let us consider a situation when you are watching a movie either in your home or a cinema hall with interest, and you do not want to miss every frame of the film. Suddenly someone wants to converse with you or prompts you for some activity, then what is your reaction?
We cannot neglect the fact that in the theater many people sit with each other and enjoy the movie. Some people are quite some are making noise, gossiping, talking on phones, etc. during a film. I do not like their behavior. I always think they are not only missing the entertainment but also ruining others enjoyment! Why not, everyone should think about the same since we all pay equally for the tickets!
JmGO E8 as a Smart Home Theater Portable Projector
I am writing this post after remembering about one incident that was happened to me about three months before! One day my friends and I were planned to watch an action movie on the weekend. We got the movie tickets online and successfully reached the theater on time.
If I can remember correctly, then it is the second day of the movie release, and we had taken the tickets of matinee show. I have to say that the show was houseful. We came back home in the interval itself without watching the complete movie!
Do you want to know why?
It is only due to the disturbance that we faced inside the hall. Ultimately we got utterly fed up with the noise of some audiences in the first half of the movie. Finally, we were decided to leave the hall in the movie interval itself without waiting for the climax of the film!
We saw some couples came to watch the movie with their small child’s those are making noise. Some people are talking about the film while watching the same. Some are hooting on a thrilling shot of the film and so on. Well, I am not blaming them since all of us are of a different mentality, and we have the right to enjoy a movie in our way!
After some days of this incident,
