On Amazon, the Delicacy Ocean Wave Projector has a very good rating. If this really agrees with the truth, what are the advantages/disadvantages of the device, and much more you will learn in this review. Also, I will discuss some customer questions.
Scope of delivery
The water projector is delivered in a slightly larger box. This includes the projector on the one hand. On the other hand, there is also a USB cable, an audio cable with a 3.5 mm jack, and remote control included.
A USB power supply or the required four AA batteries are not included. So you can only operate the projector with the USB cable via a power bank, a computer, or the like. If you want to connect it directly to the socket, you have to buy the power supply separately. The same applies to the batteries.
The commissioning of the water projector takes, in the best case, not even one minute. All you have to do is connect the power supply before you can use the projector. For this, you can plug the USB cable on the back into the connector and connect it to a power source. Alternatively, you can place four AA batteries in the compartment on the bottom.
The device has three buttons for control. With one, you can start or stop the water projection. The other two can be used to increase or decrease the volume of the sound being played. If you have not connected a sound source, you can also change the rotation using the latter buttons.
After the start, the device works extraordinarily well. The projection appears clearly on the ceiling, provides a pleasant feel-good atmosphere, and plays music in appropriate quality.
The built-in speakers can be connected to an MP3 player or other audio devices with a 3.5mm jack via a rear panel connector. Some Amazon buyers report scratching when using the speakers. Others think that the sound quality is excellent.
The projection is reminiscent of a real underwater world. However, it can only be seen well in complete darkness. A motor allows moving the water projection. This is unfortunately quite loud during use, so it’s best to set up the projector at a distance or use the sound function if you want to relax.
After approx. 90 minutes the Delicacy Ocean Wave Projector switches itself off. So no electricity is wasted if you fall asleep while using the device.
Also really well done are the outward appearances of the Delicacy Ocean Wave Projector. Although this “only” is made of plastic, all parts sit firmly together, do not shake around, and leave behind all in all a stable impression.
Despite all that, it doesn’t look too high quality because it is completely made of plastic. Besides, the rotation jerks a little, which can be perceived as disturbing. On the positive side, a power-saving LED lamp was used. In the case of such a luminaire, only a small amount of heat is generated.
Currently, the Delicacy Ocean Wave Projector on Amazon costs around 25 bucks. For this price, you will find, in my opinion, nearly comparable competitor products. Accordingly, I would rate the price-performance ratio as “Very good”.
- simple operability of the three buttons

- different current sources usable
- LED luminaire as light source
- creates relaxed atmosphere
- is in the lower price range
- makes at some customers annoying noises during use

Conclosure – Delicacy Ocean Wave Projector
You like mirroring the water in the pool and by the sea? Then the Delicacy Ocean Wave Projector with a built-in speaker is definitely something for you. The device clearly keeps the promises of the manufacturer as well as the test pages, even if the projection of the water can become somewhat boring after some time.
Finally, for the really low price, not much can be done wrong, especially the simple operation, the easy to understand instructions, and the possibility to play music, in any case, speak for a purchase.
