Excerpt: The pocket rocket we’ve been packing in our pants recently (full name: Optoma DLP EP-PK-101 Pico Pocket Projector) is one of the first mini projectors to hit the market. It’s also one of the best, even though a number of flaws spill from the tiny device.
Pros: Perfect projector for parties. Rectangular lens creates wide image that keeps the image from stretching. Fine picture quality, 8-96 inches. Startup time > 4 seconds. Dead-sexy hardware.
Cons: Lithium-ion batteries die after 2 hours’ use; how are we supposed to watch our Battlestar marathon? Battery recharge time 4 frakkin’ hours. Suck-tastic speaker. Unless you have a video-out adapter, you can’t project Office docs from your PC. Projector gets hot enough to fry bacon after running 30...
Excerpt: We were expecting a lot from Optomo's Pico PK101 after being left unimpressed by Aiptek's Pocket Cinema V10. The two projectors are remarkably similar, both being roughly the size of a large mobile phone, and are able to show images up to between 50in and 60in.
