3M MP225a Review

3M MP225a Pico Projector Review


A scientific, in-depth analysis with side-by-side comparisons

Easy to setup; A good set of colors

Poor peak brightness; Limited connectivity

The 3M MP225A ($299 MSRP) is a very simple pico projector to be used with Apple devices on the fly. There is an optional VGA cable that we used to test this 3M pico, but the available resolutions and resulting motion performance were less than passable.
