Great First Projector, Home use review.
4 August 2013
Summary: As with most things, i spent a fair while reviewing this item before i bought, as there werent many reviews on this model i looked back at the previous models as they are quite similar i believe. There were a few things i wish people had answered so ill put them in here incase anyone else wonders similar things! I brought this itending to use for a few evenings in my bedroom and sometimes in the living room. First thing to say is i love it.
Summary: So I wanted to either get a small TV for the bedroom or a bigger TV for the livingroom, with my picopix projector i have both. The ability to connect your ipad to it and play Netflix or the various iplayers makes it perfect for watching things on any spare wall you have at home. It also has colour correction for if the wall is not white, i.e. magnolia or light blue.
Summary: Great for it's size but not bright enough for my needs: watching dvd/bluray on living room wall. Ok to about 40ins but then that is just around TV size. If the tiny size of the equipment is not that important then I would suggest a more conventional projector at the around the same price as it will manage nearer 3000 lumens.
Summary: With so many other materials to carry, we needed a small, light projector for a laptop presentation. The Philips PPX2480 Picopix is smaller and about half the weight of a bag of sugar and fits in your pocket nicely! It did the job very well, though I would leave a little more time beforehand in future (as with any projection) to experiment and achieve the sharpest image without distortion. Well recommended though.
Summary: Good - Very compact - almost pocket size Image is clear and bright on smaller screen Sound is adequate for small meeting room Noise is not disturbing (to me at least) Loads of menu options for tweaking picture Even runs on internal rechargeable batts Bad No HDMI Cable provided (though there's an unweidly VGA + audio one and a USB One Focus is manual, plastic, and I sense will be the thing that breaks first Bit grainy on VGA pictures (through the HDMI input solved this)...
Summary: I bought this for small group presentations, so a pico with led and hdmi were my criteria. onboard functionality is excellent, as long as you save in the right formats (.mov/mp3 kind of stuff - see the box). Only detractor is that being vga text can be a bit grainy, but otherwise, love it to bits, will have lots of fun in the coming years.
Summary: I read a number of reviews for this product before buying, and saw mixed opinions regarding its brightness and noise. I went ahead and bought it and I'm delighted with its performance ! For a small battery-operated unit I thought it remarkable that such a clear and bright image was possible. I use for presentations at work to small groups, and provided you're not trying to use it in a bright sun-lit room, it's fine.
Summary: Great little machine - lightweight but without any useful instructions other than about connectivity so there were a number of problems about finding the right folders and pictures. Sound quality not tested. Picture very bright and clear but only when the room is sufficiently dark.
Summary: I purchased this projector primarily for use connected to a laptop in my bedroom (using wireless keyboard/mouse), with occasional use in the living room for DVDs/movies. Overall, it does the job well. Movies, especially, are good with the wide screen. The connectivity is awesome. with vga,hd, usb, sd card, and a few hours built in battery life, meaning it can be successfully carried, and used independent of any other device.
