Optoma Pico review

 

Is Optoma's pocket DLP projector any good?

Decent performance for such a small device ; Built-in speakers

Pricey ; Not very powerful - needs a dark room

A dinky and impressive gadget, but once the novelty factor wears off there's little to appeal in the image quality stakes

Optoma Pico PK101 pico projector

 

To the casual snapper, there's now little difference between pictures taken on one of the latest mobile phones compared to those of a dedicated compact camera. And video? It's now usable, certainly. So what do we do with all of this self-created...

Portable, simple to use, cheap

Very low 320 x 240 resolution, poor colour

Although not of high enough quality - yet - to be considered a high-end accessory for giving presentations or projecting in a home, the Pico is a decent beginning. But in a blackout, with the projection restricted to around 30-inches, it’s more than...

Optoma's Pico PK101 may fit in a pocket, but is it worth taking it out?

Optoma Pico PK101 review

 

A surprisingly affordable DLP video and data projector that fits in your pocket. Even if you're wearing particularly tight jeans

It looks the part, but the Pico PK101’s devastating lack of brightness frequently renders it all but unusable

We were expecting a lot from Optomo's Pico PK101 after being left unimpressed by Aiptek's Pocket Cinema V10.

Optoma Pico PK-101 projector

 

Pocket projectors are the next big thing. At CES, WoWWee unveiled the Cinemin Stick and Swivel model, Samsung the MBP200 and Acer's K10 Pico is the most recent launch, announced earlier this month. However, Optoma gets kudos for being one of the...

Great for the novelty and the pocketability

At £250, it's very pricey for a gadget you could soon tire of

Optoma Pico Pocket Projector review

 

If you do choose to use the projector to watch a video, perhaps from your phone or your iPod then it does perform quite well, especially if you can turn out all of the lights and project on to a proper projector screen or a plain white wall. I'd...

Review: Optoma Pico Pocket Projector

 

The Pico Pocket Projector is capable of projecting images and video at up to 60” from a video iPod or smartphone with TV-out functionality.

For such a small and straightforward system, the performance is surprisingly good. The image is bright and sharp and clear, and refreshes smoothly enough to make it viable for use for video clips.
