Great projector for the poeple on the go!!
definitively super portable, nice clean image for a led base projector, perfect for that camping trip if you pair it with an external speaker and a white blanket... i adjusted to project an 80" screen with no problems at all

Great little projector--I was impressed with the picture. Battery life is a joke at less than an hour, but everything else is great.

It is exactly what I hoped for. Incredible performance, simple handling, absolutely great. Have used extensively since purchased and had no problems.

Smart product but !
After received the package and opened it from the box. All the accessory were unwrapped, no plastic bac covered at all. no manual which i thought it was normal for new products in these day market and we needed to download from their website. Ater that;
I have used it for 4 times;
1st turned on to check if it worked or not for less than 1 min.
2nd after fully charged used about 10 minutes to learn and followed the download manual by using it with Ipad and Ipad VGA connector. It worked well and I really like it very much concerning how small it is.
3rd showed the cartoon movie to my kids by projecting it to the ceiling. They love it so much. we used for around 30 minutes.
4th time, I made presentation to Sheik from GCC country in the meeting. After 5 min I started to see some small white dots on the edge of the 4:3 frame, then the spots came much more and more, luckky me the presentation was end.
After consulting with Optoma Techician from the US. I have to send it back for repairing. There must be something wrong with the chip screen or something in side it. The ad.- said it can be used for 20,000 hours-but my case was not. I live in the other side of the US. then I have to fill up the RMA form, send it to request the RMA number, provide the address in The US which I have to ask friend of friends to do so. send the registered package to the factory. waiting for fixing then have it sent to my friend house before he send me back to Bangkok! that will be my experience with this lovely tiny Pico Projector.Read full review

Superb little projector.
I'm a big gadget guy, and I've been wanting a pico projector for quite some time. I was finally able to justify purchasing one when I got a job as a teacher. It's a relatively small school, and not every class room has a projector, but I often have multimedia I want to show the class.
This fits that purpose pretty well. The most obvious advantage is its size. It fits well into my coat pocket, so I can carry it around casually, and whip it out to share pictures should the opportunity arise. It also lends itself well to tripod mounting- something I always wanted for my old clunker of a projector. It's small and light enough to mount to the cheapest, flimsiest tripods, which makes positioning a piece of cake. No propping up and adjusting feet trying to line up your screen with whatever table's available, or fiddling with keystone settings. For presentations, the high contrast ratio of the projector compensates well for the low 50 lumen output- text is much more clear than on my old 800 lumen LCD projector with moderate ambient lighting. For things like movies and photos, there needs to be little or no ambient lighting however. As an example, I wasn't able to properly black out the windows for a video today, which made for a washed-out, barely visible image, except for a few times when the sun was blotted out by clouds.
Another point I like about it, though most people might not take note of, is it takes 12VDC power, and a 2.5 inner/5.5mm outer diameter plug- working perfectly with my portable solar power pack, which on a full charge could keep my projector running for days. It should be a hit the next time I go camping. Note that using it with anything other than the supplied power cord (or Optoma's optional battery pack) may void the warranty.
It does have some drawbacks. On my unit at least, the color is very uneven. The left side is quite blue, which is immediately noticeable when displaying a white background, and somewhat noticeable even on white colored subtitles in a movie. Setting it to the movie color mode helps somewhat, but it doesn't completely remove the problem. Second, and perhaps I shouldn't blame the projector for this, but most video cards do not support output to the projector's native resolution (854x480). This means either losing a few pixels and the 16:9 aspect ratio by sending 848x480, or keeping the 16:9 but losing some clarity by sending it 720p and letting it downscale.
The next issue is the lack of a bundled remote, which is self-explanitory. Last, while it has many input options, it doesn't come with the proper proprietary connectors for all of them.
Overall, it's a great little projector. The color issue is my main reason for subtracting a star, but even if the color issue was worse than it is, it would still be worth buying. It's many times better than the older pico projectors I've had a chance to play with, and nearly stands up to my old 720p clunker in video quality.Read full review
