Summary: I do not own a television but occasionally like to watch movies from my computer and xbox360. I purchased the optoma PK301 because it was very small and I had read was quiet and easy to use. Pros: All of these things were true but I found that I had to make the room uncomfortably dark to watch anything clearly. Too dark to eat popcorn or even see the other person across from you. I know that brightness is a common complaint of the LED projector so we can let that one go.
Summary: I bought the Optima PK301 as I travel a lot and give classroom presentations, thinking that I would not have to lug around my full size projector. Although Th Optoma is nice to carry, using it in the classroom presents some challenges. Although they advertise 120" display the brightness of the bulb does not display readable slides for the classroom atmosphere.
Summary: We bought the Optoma PK301 in April of 2011 as a solution to wanting a big screen but not wanting to leave burglar bait in our vacation home. We were more-than-most-happy with its performance until it malfunctioned this August, just four months out of warranty. Whatever had been making red stopped doing so and our movie watching went to blue with occasional shades of green/yellow. No more flesh-tones, sunsets, or red balloons. The mfg.
Summary: I found this projector to be easy to use, lightweight and portable. It replaces the large projector's I have had to carry around and provides clear images on a big screen. Works very well in small to medium sized rooms.
Summary: I bought this product about 12 months. it is a good portable product. small and very good for 2 to 5 people small presentation meeting. the downside is the focus is manual adjustable and sometime is hard.
Summary: I purchased this almost two years ago for occasional media sharing at work and for watching movies with friends. It's an impressive little projector, very bright in low light. At 50 lumens I have no complaints; it looks pretty good and in complete darkness it's amazing. Battery life is not as good as it claims.
Summary: It is a good item, and the images projected are great quality image. Is also very light and small and portable. The bad thing is that the software doesn't work with MAC OS, it won't be compatible with iMac, neither with MacBooks. You can still instal Windows OS in your Mac, is that what I did, as I'm a Mac user.
Excerpt: i used these cables to hook up my ipod to my pk201 projector and it worked ok but often i had to wiggle the cables around when hooking it up or it would either not give me proper audio or video
Summary: Well, I was looking for something affordable, easy to carry, with some quality for small group presentations, such as meetings and classes. It fits my needs. I use with my Ipad 2 and my Laptop. PowerPoint slides look OK and music videos that I projected with it seemed Ok as well. This is not a fancy projector but for basic needs it does deliver the job.
