Philips PicoPix PPX2480


Rather than huddling round your PC or laptop to show off your latest photos, why not treat everyone to an old-school slide show?

Small, wide selection of video formats supported, good display for the size

No iPhone cable bundled with projector

Philips PPX2480


Very versatile for plugging in lots of devices.Great Picture.

A little noisey,but good loud in built speaker will envelope this.Try external sound system,to drown out any projector running noises.

Very light and portable, crystal clear display. Very happy with it

Battery charge only lasts around 1 hour, if no mains available, larger capacity would be better, only criticism to be honest.

It is very portable. The LED bulb will last for 30000 hours.

If you are running it from HDMI sources, you will need an additional cable to fit its mini-HDMI socket. It is so light that the weight of the cable can pull it around. You need a mini-tripod to set it up properly.

The image is fantastic, even above the recommended screen size. I watch mine on a 120" screen without issue

Sometimes can be noisy. No 1080p from the HDMI port

Range of Applications. Portability. Picture quality.

Internal speaker is usless but headphones or external speakers work well.

Great portability

Resolution nowhere near good enough for text-based PowerPoint business presentations. Can only imagine it being used for home projection in a fully darkened room.
