Summary: I was really looking for such a product for long time. It serves me fine as of now. But the battery supports is poor - therefore you need to always have your charger ready to watch a 90 minute movie. The tripod is really crappy. It looks good but really does not help. In summary, I am happy with it.
Philips Pico Pix PPX1430 (to be used with X-box 360)

Summary: Overall, this is a great product. I purchased it primarily for using my X-box 360 when I'm travelling, and for projecting movies played on my PC onto the ceiling when I'm feeling lazy in bed... Pro's: Very compact (I know this is what it's supposed to be, but it's really still a shock when you remove it from the box and hold it in the palm of your hand!) Battery lasts for a good long time, at least as long as advertised.
Summary: Summary - a great little projector unit for showing pictures and movies in relatively small dark environments. Onboard storage and power mean it is completely self contained. Cons The light isn't enormously bright - so this works best in a dark room. There is a bit of a 'refresh' effect which can sometimes be seen with the LED - it can be a little off-putting, particularly for videos.
Summary: I had been looking for a projector that I could use with my MacBook and iPad for some while and eventually chose this model. I would have given the product 5 stars but chose to not do so as the unit does not come with the necessary cables, I ended up paying a considerable amount more for cables to connect to my iPad and MacBook.
Summary: Very agreeably surprised by the performance of such a small projector, granted it requires a properly darkened room and the sound leaves something to be desired, but overall a worthwhile purchase.
Summary: Received the projector and very impressed with it. There are limitations with this product, it has to be perfectly straight on to the projected screen otherwise the picture is distorted, and having to purchase additional cables was a bit disapointing but overall I am very happy.
Summary: Well, if you are like me, and for the last few weeks you have been checking every new review on Amazon and have been wondering whether the Picopix 1430 is worth £200 of your money, don't think about it any more. Just buy it, and you won't regret it - this is an amazing little performer.
Summary: AFTER PLAYING AROUND WITH THIS UNIT FOR A DAY NOW I AM WRITTING A VERY QUICK REVIEW ON IT AND COMPAIRING IT TO MY ACER 5360 ITS A VERY COMPACT UNIT THATS FOR SURE , ABOUT 1/8 THE SIZE OF THE ACER , IT SEEMS TO PLAY MOST MOVIE FILES OF THE BUILT IN MEMORY OR SD CARD OR EVEN USB STICK , USB STICK YOU NEED TO USE THERE ADAPTOR , BUT YOU REALLY DO NEED A COMPLETE DARK ROOM TO GET THE BEST OUT OF IT , BUT THEN WHEN YOU COMPAIR IT TO THE ACER WHICH IS A PROPPER BULB PROJECTOR...
Summary: This projector is ideal if you want to carry around a battery powered 72 inch TV in your pocket. It'll act like one too, as long as you have a perfectly dark room and don't mind rather tinny audio playback. Seriously however, this is not what most people are going to use it for. Certainly my main use is for Power point presentations where there is no projector available and I have a relatively small audience in a meeting room.
Summary: I bought this for fun. It is amazingly small. I thought I would add one thing that nobody else seems to have mentioned. You see a lot of split RGB images as your eye does its normal saccades. It is a bit disconcerting. Aside from that it is great. Other observations: missing critical VGA cable (£20); trapezoidal projection unless you manage to suspend the unit exactly; SD card does some but not all mpeg encodings and no wmv; battery life is an issue if you don't keep it...
