Sony MP-CD1 Premium Mobile Projector with HDMI/MHL Review

Written by

Sony MP-CD1, a premium pocket-sized mobile projector that offers high brightness, true ANSI 105-lumen for bright and dynamic pictures. Unlike “marketing lumens” that lying about its true lumen rating, an ANSI Lumen is the only certified measure of brightness you can trust, devised by the American National Standards Institute to measure true brightness. Ideal for business presentations, weekend parties or outdoor events, the MP-CD1 is the reliable mobile projector for professionals on the go.

This projector looks sturdy and elegant in a premium aluminum body. At just 280g (9.9 ounces) and measuring 83x16x150mm (W/H/L), the MP-CD1 is portability defined. The underside of the unit features a socket that fits a standard tripod for projecting at any angle and has four rubber feet for staying still. On the side is a 3.5mm standard audio jack for attaching the MP-CD1 to either headphones or external speakers, a better alternative to its 1.0 W internal speaker.

The HDMI port on the side is compatible with standard HDMI/MHL inputs. So, you can connect via cable to laptops, gaming consoles, Android devices, and also Apple devices (using a digital AV adapter, sold separately). It’s also MHL-friendly enabling you to output video from your Android phone or tablet on the big screen. The HDMI and USB ports on the MP-CD1 accept a variety of media-streaming devices/dongles, for access to a wide range of video sources, such as YouTube or Netflix.

For the performance, Sony MP-CD1 provides a brilliant display thanks to image-processing algorithms that intelligently manage brightness and power consumption. But the display resolution is only 854×480 pixels, a very common widescreen resolution. So you can’t expect ultra-detailed when you watch movies or play games on this projector. Despite its bright output, this projector is cooled by a fan that is almost noiseless.

Sony MP-CD1 does a pretty good job to show photos or presentation in environments where there is still ambient light. This projector allows you to put 120-inches on a wall, but it’s a much better, tighter and brighter image if you restrict it to 80-inches. If you go any higher, image will fade and looks pixelated, even in a blackout. In watching movies, the MP-CD1 produced a reasonably bright 80-inch on a wall without any issues with motion blurring or noise.

There is some automatic keystone correction software that rights any awry image in seconds, but it’s hit-and-miss. When moving the projector even an inch, the keystone software will reset the focus. There is a manual focus slider but it doesn’t make any convenient at all.

This mobile projector comes with a 5,000mAh capacity battery which lasts for more than two hours of use. As the battery is charged via the standard USB-C port, there’s no proprietary AC adapter to carry or forget. And it can serve as a USB charger for your other mobile devices. That’s a nice option for every business trip regardless of the need for an impromptu presentation. So even if you’re not planning to make a presentation, the MP-CD1 is handy to have when you’re out and about.

If you looking for high brightness pocket-sized projector with MHL-friendly for your mobile presentations or on-the-go entertainment, Sony MP-CD1 will do the job.
