3M Pocket Projector MP160

 

The main attraction of the 3M Pocket Projector MP160 is its high brightness level, pure and simple.

Unusually bright for a pico projector. Can connect to computer or any composite video source.

Relatively big and heavy for a pico projector. No internal memory and no slots for memory cards.

3M PocketProjector MP160

 

The 3M P180 pico projector offers decent picture quality and superb internal memory.

This projector has a respectable max resolution of 1044 x 900

This projector doesn't come with a remote control

The simplistic design makes this projector easy to use.

3M MP160 projector review

 

The MP160 pocket projector from 3M is a basic handheld device aimed at the travelling business user. It performs its primary function well, but is let down by a lack of connectivity.

Excellent battery life; large and bright picture; stereo speakers Cons: No microSD, USB or HDMI connectivity; very sensitive to keystone effect; fiddly tripod; expensive

No microSD, USB or HDMI connectivity; very sensitive to keystone effect; fiddly tripod; expensive

The MP160 is a decent portable projector that provides a bright picture with its 30 Lumens lamp. The lack of connectivity is a major let down and, together with the high price tag, stops this from being an essential purchase. Pros: Excellent battery...
