Also, JMGO N7 can act as an HD TV box to watch programs and online videos, and yes not to forget a smart portable projector. I got a bit delay while playing online games like CoD on the projector. However, I cannot say if it is a downside of the device or not.
You need special glasses to watch 3D movies on N7. However, the brightness of the display output in such case is slightly reduced because 3D glasses have a bandwidth of 38-40 percent. However, considering N7 as a home theater projector, it can be neglected.
At first startup, it gives tips on how the initial setup the device like time, language, and Wi-Fi. You might get some blurred image for some seconds on the output display at the boot of the device. But it is temporary since the projector can adjust the sharpness and make the output display itself for vibrant visuals.
If you are interested in configurations of N7, then you can buy it! The device can be used for both home and professional use. By the way, you can buy the JMGO N7 projector at much less price around $899 via online stores than its original market cost which is $1046. The price is excluding the handling fees if applied!
