Summary: We used this in our disabled son's sensory room and it constantly keeps breaking down. £200 wasted, can't afford to shelve out £140 to send this to Out Of Warranty repairs in Austria every year. Very poor.
Summary: Tbh I can't believe the price on here, I've had mine for over 3 years and bought it for less than £100 from Argos. Don't get me wrong, it's a great little machine, I used mine for playing Xbox 360 (change Xbox display to 720 HD) but now I've gone next gen I need a little more oomph!
Summary: This device does exactly what it says on the tin. It can project an image (clear enough quality for entertainment purposes) onto a large screen. Connecting my laptop was easy and it came with a VGA cable. The problem I find with the device is that it is a very light instrument.
Summary: A friend has an Iomega pico projector which I saw once and was hooked on the idea. I live in Portugal and in the summer it would be great to watch TV or films outside in the evening once it is completely dark- it is brilliant for this if you have a large white wall.
So small and functional you won't believe it...and comes with VGA cable

Summary: This projector is small and compact and has a rechargeable battery but that's about all I can say for it from a positive point of view. I have tried to set it up on a Mac air and even with the latest drivers I can barely get it working.
Summary: Very sharp, bright images. Could benefit from a remote control but no big deal. Tripod could do with being heavier - the projector sometimes can tilt backwards when an AV cable is plugged in as the cable is heavier than the tripod!
Summary: Bought it, connected up and got it running almost immediately. Slight hiccup with the "desktop" view, but will sort that out next time I use it. Could do with a pdf instruction manual, otherwise did exactly what it said it would.
Summary: Bought this projector to use in my room along with a wireless mouse and wireless keyboard. Works well for my purpose, Works straight out of the box when connected to my laptop. By the way, 2 cables were provided for the connection, one is for computer and the other one with 3 heads that i have no...
