Want to like it, but can't stand on its own

Caleb 3/18/2022

i love this thing, so far the smart calibration has worked really well for me, and i have used it in 3 different rooms and distances. the initial setup took awhile to calibrate, but i have seen a ton of improvement since. the ui is easy and intuitive, if not a bit slow but for all it does right out of the box i was impressed. it's killer is the fasteners from the device to the cradle. i have to use something else to prop it up, which is unfortunate with this things price tag. it's so close to being really great, but with such a big design flaw and them feeling very cheap i can't give this a better rating currently

1 WEEK AND SENT IT BACK FOR REPAIRS

NYCGIANTS 3/14/2022

i was hooked on the concept. i pre-ordered and it took months to receive it. the setup was easy and i was able to use it right away but noticed that the keystone was off. i tried adjusting but to no avail. the weight of the projector is too much for the tiny screws, it kept dipping. it worked for the first week, but then crashed and was unable to turn it on. still waiting for my "new" unit to arrive so i can do my expensive beta testing. what a letdown. 2 stars for concept only. i feel bad that i recommended this product to my friends and family.

Great portable projector with room for improvement

Edwin 3/14/2022

some key takeaways as a frequent user of the projector... pros - portability: plug in anywhere or even use portable charge packs - focus/aim: auto tweak the focus settings or keystone settings is a great add, but knowing that i can still manually tweak, is good peace of mind - apps: all my streaming services available easily accessible, amazing! cons: - ui: sluggish at time and painfully annoying in lag, where press the button, nothing happens, press again, and then 2 actions happen immediately; more painfully obviously when you boot up for the first time from plug in - samsung live tv: the projector always wants to play live tv, after inactive for like 1min, even in menu trying to to figure out settings. the plus is that you can disable this (which i have)

Disappointing

adbdbadbdb 3/14/2022

as others have stated its a bit laggy. i fully understand that its a projector but with the hype around how great this product was supposed to be i assumed we wouldn't have any issues using it with a small lamp on in the same room....or it being daylight outside. it for sure needs a dark room to be close to vibrant or clear picture. i am very disappointed i spent so much on it, its not worth the grand i spent and that's not a typical response you'd get from me regarding samsung's products. i'd love to return it but its our primary tv.

Meets expectations; kinks remains

projectoruser1234 3/13/2022

this is a device for those open to new experiences in unexpected places. functionality is rich, execution is overall 4 stars. @samsung: please fix the annoying and - currently - unremovable default setting to launch in samsung tv mode and allow to not share the data with samsung. it is illegal, i think, to enforce that, even in the us. i want the device to launch in smarttv mode like a normal smart tv with the option to launch with whatever the last app was i was using. other issues: 1) the tilt angle of the device is sometimes prone to change; it is not well calibrated to stay at 45 degrees angle. 2) the automatic screen calibration is 80% there. 3) double the length of the usb-c cable. 4) bluetooth connection needs improvement.

As advertised

Josh 3/12/2022

it is a good little projector, just as advertised. i only have 2 complaints. you are limited on apps to choose from (cinemax for example). and if you are going to watch at certain levels, you have to put something under the front so it won't continue to creep to the floor.

Love it! Smart TV the size of a bluetooth speaker!

Freestyle Lover 3/10/2022

i've used the freestyle for just over a week. i project onto my ceiling & get about 60" in width. the picture is clear, audio is great, and it's intuitive to navigate. connecting streaming apps (netflix, prime video, etc.) was really easy and i had no issues linking my accounts. downloading apps that weren't preloaded was easy as well. samsung tv plus is also a nice touch. set up was also really easy using the manual option. there was a software update the first time i turned the projector on, and i believe that's solved the auto-focus/clicking noise issue others have mentioned. haven't experienced any of those issues. i barely hear the device when it's on. overall a great product. simply amazing!

Tizen must be killed trashed.

Scottleew 3/10/2022

this tizen os destroyed the futuristic simplicity of the freestyle. the problem is they do not possess the technological advances to keystone a precise picture on a wall when the projector is not perfectly centered. when the projector is sitting diagonal displaying the digital keystone will warp out of line every 15 minutes & there is a rectangular dim offset framing shining around the actual picture. tizen os subjects users to an extremely slow process. lagging navigation is horrible and so sad. connecting micro hdmi to apple tv is flawless but creates a bulky equipment that destroys the simplicity of the freestyle. why didn't samsung partner with google tv os or preferably apple which is the leader in refined perfection of software?

Saucerhead 3/9/2022

this is what i've been looking for for a few years! a small portable projector that i can plug my phone into and use camping without wifi. it took testing a few hdmi cords but i found one that works and i can plug my iphone into the projector and play anything from it. the picture quality is fantastic as i've been testing it in my house, i cant wait to try it out in the woods on the side of my camper.

Great Concept but a lot of performance's problems

Migle 3/8/2022

the concept it is great but the keystone correction and autofocus does not work well at all. also there are problems of delays with the remote control. a lot of problems loading apps. xfinity stream beta app does not load, it stay in the loading screen and never get an image. i have that app working on all my samsung smart tv's without problem. i do not know what it is happening with this product. you need to release a firmware update urgently in order to solve all these problems.

I wanna love it with all its quirks

Gadgit 3/7/2022

the good: super portable and cool. easy to set up it does the job it was intended to do pretty good picture and sound the bad: the auto leveling and adjusting works ok. i've had to restart multiple times to get it to kick in. the ui is very slow and laggy. need to be able to make adjustments over the picture that's playing, and not have to exit to the settings menu every time. final thoughts: it's pretty cool. i'm keeping it, but they need to fix the software.

Don't buy this, is not worth it!

Sandr 3/7/2022

the display is permanently tilted left. i had to add a small wedge at the base. but the worst problem is the extremely loud and annoying fan or static noise. the cranking is so loud that you can hear it even when the volume of the unit is cranked up to 50... it had only been in use for 2 days when the cranking started and i've tried turning it on yesterday and today but rattleing only got louder. can't use it anymore.

Carter 3/6/2022

yes, the interface is clunky and sometimes slow/non responsive and yes sometimes i am watching shows at a slight angle, but who cares?!?! i am sure there are cheaper or better alternatives. but for $900 i now have a tv in my bedroom without additional furniture or mounts. are sunset i can watch tv against the back fence. i anxiously await software updates and accessories but for now i am pleased with this despite its handful of glitches.

Potential but overall a letdown

ATLGuru 3/6/2022

i expected a lot from initial hype around the freestyle. however my first experience with the projector has been underwhelming especially give the price point. few issues which are particularly problematic - the navigation is too slow with the remote meaning too many wrong clicks - the darker colors are washed out in all settings and this combined with the fact that projector is overall pretty low on brightness makes it tough to use in any setting other than a completely dark room still debating whether to keep or return. expected better from samsung.

Terrible auto-leveling; Slow, clunky OS

Jorge 3/5/2022

i'm disappointed with several aspects of the hardware and software. the auto-leveling of the display image is terrible, routinely tilted by a few degrees. the projector stand fails to hold it at the angle it has been set. navigating the menus is horribly slow. gaming app support is sorely lacking - no steam link , nor stadia, nor geforce now. i totally dislike ads on the home screen and that the samsung tv plus app autoplays, even if i'm just trying to navigate settings - support confirmed that this behavior cannot be disabled! smart view does not work for me, because despite all the guides, there is no "smart view" button to be found after i've added the device to smartthings. everything that is supposed to be smooth is just not good or not working as expected. :-(

Feature Disappointment

AzFrankP 3/5/2022

sadly, i'm disappointed in this product. it was sold as a great way to watch videos in a portable fashion. unfortunately, a wifi network is required to wirelessly connect my s22 ultra. that's hard to find in remote areas of the country. true, i can turn my phone into a hotspot for a connection, but that becomes very expensive. this could be done directly with a cable but samsung chose to use a micro hdmi connection. try finding one of those cables without using a multitude of adapters. why not a standard hdmi or another usb c configured for the video, or even bluetooth? the unit is certainly large enough to accommodate. was also disappointed in video quality. suppose to be 1080p but auto focus doesn't work that well. straight on projection, edges were blurry.

I can watch shows in bed

Mikehuff2000 3/5/2022

after a bad car accident years ago laying in bed watching tv was impossible. now i can lay in bed and watch whatever i want on my ceiling clearly. that is worth the money alone. there are software issues and i am sure samsung will fix (based on their history). i am slightly biased since i am a huge samsung fan. all my appliances, tvs, phones, tablets, and watches are samsung. i own 2 other small portable projectors but this one is the best because of the angle from the head of my bed to the ceiling.

Agss 3/5/2022

i wanted to love this. especially with the hefty price tag. the auto focus feature is so annoying. it keeps focusing and unfocusing every couple of seconds. and the auto adjustment of the screen sucks. it also won't work unless it's plugged in.

Not up to par

Scott R 3/5/2022

i was excited to finally get my freestyle after a few month waiting but i'm disappointed in the overall performance. i'm having the similar issue with the cradle. even when the screws are tightened, cannot keep the unit from drooping when it is placed near a 45 degree angle... it just slowly droops down. i've tightened the screws but it did not fix it. i'm also having issues with the focus. i can't get it to be nearly as crisp (even with the manual focus) as other projectors.

Love love love it

Cm01 3/4/2022

did i say that i love it because i do. let me state it a why. usb type-c connectivity now i can carry only one adapter that can power my phone, laptop, projector and anything else that can be powered by the usb type-c. smartthings app compatibility works flawlessly everything from controlling the projector, tap projector to screen mirror, the calibration and ambient mode has limitless possibility. the projector is easily manageable and configurable in so many different angles via this stand. wireless connectivity bluetooth there's so many things that i love about the hardware. it's really limitless the uses on travel and at home. the only downfall is not being able to connect it to my google assistant. this thing will turn on when my phone is close come on that's sick. i love it!

So Far So Good

Tyler 3/3/2022

i have had none of the issues that have been mentioned in previous reviews. the picture quality is great. the auto focus and keystone features are quick and adjust well to changes. the sound is surprisingly good for such a small device. it does easily connect to sound bar if needed. great addition to a house that has the samsung ecosystem. gave 4 stars instead of 5 only because it could be a little brighter. still better then i expected.

Noah 3/3/2022

pros: picture is great, it's clear, it's large & lots of apps. speaker is good. cons: power on is finicky, nothing happens or it sounds like it's powering on then does not, you can only watch in a very dark room (no tossing your tvs for this one), unless it is pointed straight ahead at the wall you will have an uneven frame around the actual picture (there is an additional few inches of frame around the picture itself), randomly re-focuses while watching. all in all, i don't think it's ready for this kind of price tag. i wouldn't recommend right now.

my main criticism comes from their highly advertised auto keystone feature, and not so highly advertised software. while auto keystone works, it works in limited condition, and its actually slower than my expectation. whenever i move the device side way, not only it doesn't do auto keystoning properly, it outright doesn't want to work. and when it does work, its ever so slightly not perfect. i hope this can be fixed with software update. i think software is probably my biggest killswitch. the fact that this device doesn't support google assistant, which is far more widely used in the state, is its biggest mistake. and its still extremely slow.

Awesome When it Works...

Austin 2/27/2022

cons: - the interface is very slow, which affects all of these issues below!! - auto-keystone works, then it doesn't. there are times where you move the freestyle and it won't readjust. also, when it's on a flat surface it'll still tilt your image. - manual adjustment does not work at all. you try to adjust keystone and nothing moves! - bluetooth audio is crackling! which is annoys me the most because there's no 3.5mm jack and the built in speaker is not loud enough! pros: - hdmi works flawlessly - color is beautiful - image remains crisp even at full 100 inches it'd be nice to have a snappy and responsive interface & keystone that works 100% of the time and manual adjustments that work. it's very promising, and i hope these will get fixed with updates.

Great Concept… Poor execution

Man91 2/26/2022

cons: the software is lagging, switching-between apps takes too long. the auto keystone and focus works only handful of times its loud auto plays samsung tv plus when i dont really want to see that on the home screen the recent apps always shows samsung tv plus shuts off automatically the sync with smartthings app is poor (many other reviews also mention the same cons) pros: works for a day and after that its all cons very disappointed. product had so much potential but for now i would not recommend it wait till samsungs fixes all of the above issues

Great potential

Edwin 2/26/2022

looking forward to software updates to address glitches. keystone is not reliable and requires manual adjustments constantly. scaling the screen freezes and requires disconnecting often to unfreeze and adjust. not compatible with external charger. the remote delays are extremely frustrating! you'll need a light wall to project no matter how much you adjust in expert settings it'll be too dark with a dark wall. product surface is not great, it has marks already from attaching to tripod. product and charger get extremely hot with light use. audio is great and is not top heavy. base is reliable and good! has potential with software updates.

Promising but flawed

MichaelD 2/26/2022

great potential ultimately let down by poor execution. highs: - great size and portability - useful selection of apps (built-in and downloadable) - stylish lows: - incredibly sluggish ui; interactiosn can take seconds to register - often fails to power on without unplugging, showing a green screen instead - unable to remain horizontal without slipping unless a scary amount of torque is applied to the soft plastic (!) side screws - did i mention how slow the ui is? - auto keystone is clever when it works, but often skews the image a few degrees necessitating manual override - fails to reconnect to bluetooth speaker more often than not when powering back on, necessitating a trip back to the terriblly laggy home screen to reach settings and fix it

It was great for 24 hours

rlea 2/25/2022

so don't get me wrong i love the idea of this product. however, the fact that the second day after the product was delivered i had to ship it out for repairs. the projector was extremely hot, only sound would come through and it had a green screen. it would shut off on its own and wouldn't turn back on. the fact that i pre-ordered this item for so much h money and had to ship it right back is such a downer. and i recieved zero compensation for it. lame.

Fell apart in only 2 hours

DLDE 2/22/2022

i had great expectations, but had a number of issues with this product! 1. after 2 hours of usage, the projector technology broke down and ended up being a fully green screen before the projector shutting down completely. 2. for the 2 hours it did work, i had calibration issues where the screen was not entirely horizontal but always slightly slanted 3. construction and materials are also cheap, when repositioning it squeaks. 4. getting a full refund has also been a less than satisfactory experience without it being fully resolved at this point. all in all not worth the price or headaches.

Possibilities...

gvaz 2/22/2022

this has all the makings of a great projector but as noted in the other comments, it is far too slow to actually use. apps take forever to load and videos stutter, lag, and re-start. the ui interface is equally slow; click a button and wait...did it actually move? no, try again. then it moves twice. worse the device doesn't stay at the angle you want it to until you tighten the screws a bit, but they're just plastic and i don't have much confidence in their ability to hold up.

Fun!

crisgfer 2/22/2022

This projector is really fun and portable. But when we received this it didn't come with instructions and we had no idea on how to turn it on or install.. we usually are really good on figuring it out things without instructions, but not this one. I had to email and wait for the instructions since we could not find it online either. When we figured out how to open open the protective case we noticed some scratched on top, not good for first impressions. The resolution is actually really good, the sound is good as well but even better that it can be connected to our soundbar. The voice command is fun and it's a plus having Alexa built in. Another problem we noticed is that the remote control interferes with our tv, and whenever we turn it on or off, the tv does the same. So even if we're using in another room, we can't use the remote because our tv in the other room will turn on or off if someone else is watching. So this is a bit frustrating. The auto focus and screen adjustment most of the time doesn't adjust automatically, and it's also irritating. We have to turn it off an on in case we move the projector because it won't adjust itself. So overall I don't think it's worth the money, or we just good bad luck with this one. Hope it improves! I received this product in exchange of my honest review.

Awesome gadget

Steveherbert49 2/22/2022

As someone who loves tech gadgets this is a must have!! The Bluetooth connects easily, speaker has great sound quality and projection and the projector looks very sleek. I can't wait to use this outside during the summertime. Highly recommend !

Software bugs, Keystone Issues to name a few

AllenRanger 2/22/2022

i pre-purchased this in early january after watching the ces video announcement online. i've been a loyal fan of samsung products until now. what were they thinking? the software is incredibly buggy. the remote response is delayed by seconds. the body seems cheap and i'm worried about breaking the product which habitually moves downward like it's top heavy. the keystone alignment buzzes and autofocuses every few minutes. it's distracting. you can hear the machine and the video takes at least ten seconds to correct. the freestyle is a waste of our hard earned money and is a huge disappointment from what we've always thought of as a trusted brand.

Not ready for prime time - very disappointed

gcr1 2/19/2022

can't be setup with a phone. the app won't work. the app item qr code invokes an error code. if you do get a connection, the projector randomly disconnects. the manual setup is painful. the ui/ux is illogical and difficult to navigate and is lacking. streaming apps are a difficult experience as is the channel guide. the projector will only display on smooth, large surfaces. otherwise, the projector constantly tries to adjust angles and focus, eventually giving up and showing the smallest possible image. the metal stand is faulty. the bracket constantly slips, allowing the projector to fall to the base. it then loses focus and has to be setup again. i'd say more, but samsung limits the size of this text box.

Dead within minutes.

CajuCLC 2/16/2022

after setting up and updating firmware videos were black and white with brightness and gamma bugged on negative numbers. couldn't find an option to fix, so i did a factory reset. that fixed the issue. watched about 30 mins of videos to make sure all was good, tried to use ambient and said it had an issue and i should turn off and then on and try again. i did that a couple of times and kept getting the error. so i just turned it off. this morning i tried to turn on the freestyle and it won't come on. i even used the button on the unit itself, but nothing. it's dead.

Not ready for primetime

Dan P 2/16/2022

really wanted the freestyle to work out. alas - it didn't and am returning for a refund. three major flaws. 1) the os is ridiculously slow. literally takes seconds for this device to respond to a remote button click. pretty much unusable. 2) picture brightness is awful. you literally have to be in a dark room for this to be useful. 3) auto focus seems to be off - constantly having to override with manual focus.

are you getting a $900 experience?

Never 2/15/2022

i didn't fall hook line and sinker based off the "non-biased reviews", but i did have a belief i would be getting a premium experience. it was not the case for a nearly $1k device. the software is laggy and inputs are as well. why isn't there an easy size adjustment button on the remote i have no idea. i'm giving it 3 stars, because in the right environment, it doesn't seem to be that bad. but it's main competitors are nearly $300 or cheaper. maybe if they come out with a different version. a 4k one preferably. this should've been an ultimate showcase to stream your videos or show pictures off your new s22 ultra but not this time. could've been but no one in testing was bold enough to speak up to fix things before launching

Software issues

Fredg 2/15/2022

i too really want to love this. the menus are laggy and freeze. it is almost unusable because of the slow lagging. i have software 1081 and says it is up to date? all of the reviews that i can find talk about this issue. it really ruins the product. i will definitely return it if it does not improve dramatically in the next week.

Picture quality is A1 The software is trash

Charlie 2/13/2022

so when the keystone works you get a fantastic picture and experience but…. to get to that point is a pain. i bought a projector screen and even on a perfectly flat white screen the keystone struggles. when you try a manual keystone the software lags behind really badly. its a very frustrating experience. its like samsung have put a s22 ultra lens system for the picture but made the brains from spare galaxy a02 scraps. if the software is fixed this is an automatic 4/4.5 the device has a ton of potential. please samsung fix the software. i want to love this. ya'll making it difficult.

Dissapointed

CRSO 2/13/2022

like other recent reviews, i was excited about the product, preordered it. but unhappy upon receipt. remote doesn't work all the time and/or the software is terrible. i press on it and nothing happens, or sometimes the response(s) will occur all at once so that the picture pops all over the place. takes too long to load, disney, for example. way too dark, especially when using a portable battery. returning it.
