Optoma PK201

 

If you're after a projector that fits into your pocket as easily as an iPhone, this is well worth considering.

Optoma Pico Pocket Projector PK201 review

 

The PK201 comes with several input methods, including Composite, VGA and Mini HDMI, enabling you to use content from products ranging from an iPhone (with a non-supplied adapter) to a TV or games system. In addition you can simply pop in an microSD...

The display stretches to a massive 70”, with WVGA resolution, theoretically enabling the device to be used as a portable cinema system. However in practice we found the image is not bright enough to work at that size.

Optoma PK201

 

The Optoma PK201 is a modestly bright Pico projector producing 20 lumens in its brightest mode. Not a lot of power, but this unit doesn't dissapoint even though the brightness is on the low side. I should state that most projectors that run under just...

A full feature set with with a crisp and saturated image make the PK201 pico pocket projector a great alternative for mobile presentation. Excellent Value!

Optoma PK201

 

In a class of lightweight portable projectors, the Optomo Pico PK201 is a featherweight at only 5.7 ounces. But can this tiny device perform against its heavier opponents?

Optoma Pico PK201

 

Really impressive. The claims for this product were, if anything, underrated.

Needs a remote control unit which seem available in USA but not UK. This makes it tricky to use on a tripod without gropping for buttons and subsequent shake.

Not bright enough to be useful

 

While it's very light weight and full of features, the bulb is not bright enough to be useful.

Road Warriors Must Have Tool

 

I an a consultant on construction projects. The areas I do presentations in are remote and often primitive. One less bag to get through customs and throwing a projection up on a cramped construction trailer wall is what this device seems to be made for.
