Hands on with the Philips Screeneo HDP 1590 Projector

While I was at the Gadget Show Live 2015, this week I found Philips was showing off the Philips Screeneo HDP1590 Smart LED projector.

The Philips Screeneo revives your home entertainment and turns traditional watching on its head. Enjoy the brilliant image – the result of LED technology!

Just moving the Screeneo about 40cms from the wall will give you about a 100inch screen to use, available from Amazon, Maplins and more priced at £1399.99 but if you look around you can find them for about £999.

Screeneo makes your viewing experience seem magical: When on – it’s there; when off – it’s gone!

 

  • Watch it big – Flexible screen size from 50 – 100” allows you to watch all your favourite movies, important football matches, historic sporting events, gaming and much more!.
  • An integrated DVB-T tuner allows you to enjoy free-to-air TV channels plus with multiple connectivity for Set Top Boxes, DVD/Blu-ray, games console, media servers and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth devices it allows you to enjoy your favourite content from anywhere.
  • Stream your music from your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi/ DLNA.
  • Connect your tablet or smartphone wirelessly to the Philips Screeneo with Miracast and mirror your screen while navigating on your handheld device.
  • Great sound – Integrated Digital Dolby speakers and subwoofer helps create a real cinematic atmosphere

The portability of the Philips Screeneo is one of its strongest selling points. One weekend we were due to test it at home when a last-minute trip came up, so rather than leaving it at home we took it along with us. It was easy to transport, as the 5kg unit comes in a shoulder carry bag with a spare pouch for cables, controller and 3D glassesThe Screeneo itself even has a brown leather strap for easy removal from the bag. Then all we had to do was find a nice large wall, plonk it down and plug it in.

At 10cms away from a wall you’ll get a 50-inch projection, increasing to 100-inch from just 44cm away. The distance from the wall is the only way to adjust picture size, meaning the projector will be sat in front of you, typically on the floor or a low-slung table. It was possible to get the display larger, but the brightness and clarity fall off, hence the given 100-inch limit.

If finding a large white wall is an issue then you can delve into the menu for a variety of wall colour corrections. So if there’s a blue wall the Screeneo will adapt the projected colours to work on that surface.

Unlike traditional bulb-based projectors the Screeno boasts a 30,000 hour life.

Also if you buy a Philips Screeneo from this month April 2015 until 30th June you get a 60 days money back guarantee, that’s not a bad deal at all.

The Screeneo also has built-in 5GHz Wi-Fi for DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) playback – such as dipping into an external, networked drive via Plex, in addition to two USB ports and an SD slot for streaming files.
