Summary: Got hot during use. Sometimes cut off during use. Sometimes malfunctioned image projection during use. Was still good enough to have until it just quit working. Image quality and sharpness were surprisingly good. Shortly before return-period would have expired, it died and I returned it.
Cheap construction doesn't support a lot of videos

Summary: I actually like the projector and it does what I expected but when inserting a micro USB into its slot the USB won't click into place. It did the first time but the second time it was already broken. Also I spent 4 hours learning how to convert my videos to a format that would be recognized.
Summary: The DMD processor chip will go bad after about 1 year of use. This has happened to everyone that I know who owns this projector. It is great until then, but be prepared to replace the unit every 1-2 years since there is no fix for this problem if it is not under warranty.
Summary: I bought this projector for business purposes after reading stellar reviews. While very portable, the quality is poor, and it is not very level. I would recommend looking elsewhere for a top quality projector, as this one is simply not worth the money.
So far-average with a few issues I'm trying to figure out
15 August 2012
Summary: So far, it's not what I expected, but it could be that I just haven't figured it all out yet. Early Impressions: Brightness is decent as advertised. A large conference room is about as large as you want to go, and you'll need to dim the lights. Pro: Good picture.
Summary: Purchased one of these for use when travelling, primarily for sharing powerpoint and screens with small working groups. While the form factor is fantastic for stowing in your carry-on, the presentation capabilities leave a lot to be desired.
Summary: The Optoma PK301 gets VERY hot. I just got it and I'm pretty sure it's gonna fry its insides pretty quick. I've tried to watch a movie through it's micro SD port but it's very choppy. As has been said, the sound is not worth having on. And it's not very bright either.
Summary: I wanted to give this product a good review. I like the convenience and efficiency of a projector in such a small package. However, after only a few months of use, the HDMI mini-port on my projector ceased operating. I was initially impressed by the responsiveness of technical support.
Summary: I ordered this to use as a projector thats easy to transport as I offer training classes/presentations which have me in different hotel conference rooms and other odd locations. The projector is small and compact but it is not nearly as bright as advertised, unless you have the lights off in the...
Summary: I ordered this and promptly returned it after having it for only a couple of days. The light source is not bright enough. The room must be completely dark to be able to see it the projected image. Also, note the native resolution; 854 X 480 while the specs mention a maximum of 1280 X 800.
