    Love the idea of a laser projector but 10 lumens??? Really?? And for the limited edition bundle you pay a G and get….still 10 lumens??? Wow..I know auto focus is great but that is alot of money for something you can only use in the closet. Has anyone seen the L1 from a company called AAXA Technologies? They claim to have a laser projector with twice the lumens…not sure if that translates to being able to walk out of that closet to see picture though. While on their site I did see a projector they carry called a M1 plus…66 lumens…that seems more like it and it costs hundreds less….anyone know much about this company http://www.aaxatech.com?

    AAXA seems to be an up and coming company. I’ve read that their M2 is the first 110lumen 1024×768 resolution projector. That’s not quite a pico, but it’s still pretty small. Considering getting one which is why I’m doing my research now.
