MicroVision ShowWX+


The most obvious difference in the ShowWX+—the one you can see immediately even before you plug anything in or turn it on—is purely superficial. Where the MicroVision ShowWX's physical design had an industrial flavor to it, the ShowWX+ has much more of...

No need to adjust focus at any distance from screen. Can change color mode, gamma, and brightness settings

Windows screens are a little hard to read because of the speckle effect that's typical of laser light

Surprisingly similar to the original ShowWX, but with the one serious problem?in the form of a flickering green line with some images?solved, plus any number of small improvements and a lower price, the MicroVision ShowWX+ laser projector is well worth...

MicroVision SHOWWX+ (Review)


If you still carry five-pound projectors to meetings and presentations, your prayers have been answered. With the latest generation of pico projectors, bulk is becoming a thing of the past.

Microvision SHOWWX+ Laser Pico Review


The Microvision ShowWX+ laser projector is a nice improvement over the ShowWX, with its lower cost, higher lumen output, accessories, and long battery life, making it a hard value to beat as a personal micro-theater.

Expert review by: (



The SHOWWX from Microvision is a good mini projector. The contrast ratio is stellar, but the brightness is limited. Taking these both into account, the overall picture quality is okay. This mobile projector has more going for it in the recreational...

This projector has a high contrast ratio of 5000:1

This projector doesn't have a manual focus

This projector has features that are more suited to recreational uses.

Microvision ShowWX Pico review - projector reviews and video


Say hello to our little friend - the world's first laser-driven pocket projector. Is it the Pico projector you've been waiting for?

Amazingly small and light. Attractively finished. iPod-compatible out of the box. Runs silently. Good black-level response

Far too expensive. Severely lacking in brightness. No built-in speakers. Shimmering effect over bright picture parts. Stuttery motion reproduction

Say hello to our little friend – the world's first laser-driven pocket projector. Is it the Pico projector you've been waiting for?

An inauspicious and frighteningly expensive debut for laser-based Pico projection

MicroVision SHOWWX+ HDMI pico projector review


MicroVision's SHOWWX+ HDMI is a pocket-sized projector that allows anyone to display a presentation or video output from a number of devices, including laptops, smartphones and tablets.

Compact, lightweight, can connect to smartphones and tablets as well as PCs, reasonable battery

Not full HD resolution, image has iridescent quality, works best in low ambient light, poor connectivity

Microvision's SHOWWX+ HDMI is a miniature marvel, projecting a full colour image from a device the size of a smartphone. Its resolution and image quality cannot match full-size projectors, but this model makes up for it in portability and convenience...

I like mine


In addition to sharing photos and watching movies pretty much any surface. I bought mine especially so that I could hook it up as a monitor for my mac mini I use the HDMI adapter for the mac and it hooks right up to the ShowWX+. I've also used it...

Bright, vibrant colors, never has to focus. Lights off, it looks great up to 50 inches or so

In normal light, it gets very dim at anything over 30 inches
