The projector is priced around Rs.45,000, which puts it right in the middle of the Acer (36K) and the LG (55K) pocket projectors. I would say the GP1 offers a good blend of features and performance compared to the other two. The Acer is 10K cheaper...

BenQ’s Joybee GP1 is a nifty little projector, with a native resolution higher than DVD quality and a reasonable light output given its tiny size. The non-standard resolution might annoy some users, and the fan output while not noisy, wasn’t...
