Summary: This unit if very small and portable, I mean really small. It's pretty cool that way. However, It's kind of expensive for it's light output. I couldn't possibly use it in a room with lights on and even 50% light reduction in ambient light is just barely enough to make a power point presentation viewable. I'd opt for a bigger, more powerful unit again. I would not purchase it again.
Summary: Good afternoon, When performing the purchase of the article, do not use until December that was to connect to project and realized that wine vga cable damaged, seems to bend it departed something. While the product is in warranty or should I buy another cable, because here in Venezuela can not. Thanks and looking forward to a prompt response.
Summary: Very, very light usage since we purchased it about two years ago. No more than 400 hours of total usage (in fifteen minute chunks with the unit powered off inbetween) and it is now impossible to use owing to the black and white spots taking up about 40% of the screen. Will not buy again.
Summary: Personal Experience The Optoma PK201 is a great pocket projector. It is one of the smallest projectors out there that is still usable in everyday situations. Problems The focus is a little messy and can sometimes be impossible to get perfect. There was a problem with a chip in the projector so I called up Optoma. They had extended the warranty on the chip to 3 years and replaced it for free.
Summary: not as i expected, yes its handy but to use for the power point you need to be connected to laptop. the picture was not that clear unless you are just a meter away, i just waste my money for this.
Summary: I too purchased a pico pk-201 in 2011. It worked well for aout a year. White spots began to appear on the image. Then they multiplied to the point a third of the image was unreadable. I bought a back up unit but wanted to get the first one fixed so that too could be a back-up. Its still under warranty.... so I just called the company...Optoma told me it indeed was under warranty but I would have to pay for the labor...
Summary: I am pleased with this item. Ive been wanting to get one since i saw it. Came in as described and works great. Everyone who sees it is in awe of the quality in picture and overall product. The only downside is the battery life seems to run out quicker than I would like so it had me thinking about getting another battery. Although it does perforn like it states on the box. Overall i would say that its the best electronic device Ive ever bought. Im using now as i write.
