Optoma Pico PK320 Pocket Projector

 

The Optoma Pico PK320 Pocket Projector is a tiny WVGA data projector with a solid range of connectivity options.

Easily portable. Good range of connections. Minimal rainbow effect. Long-lasting LED light source. Can run computer-free presentations from internal or external memory.

Awkward menu system. Tinting issue in data images. Slightly larger projectors offer higher brightness and resolution and other features for not much more money.

The projector comes with a remote that allows complete control of the projectors functions and the on-screen menu system is pretty staightforward. You also get a lot of accessories with this projector, but keep in mind not all regions will have the...

Dark environments with little ambient light for best viewing. A much better projector for sharing what you want, with a few people not a large room full of them

40 or 100 lumens still isn’t very bright on any average sized projected image – needs a fairly dark room., Battery lasts only 45 minutes or so in brightest (but will last almost twice that long in their “eco” (Standard) mode), Not quite as small as...

I think the Optoma PK320 is the greatest little projector around!  That’s even though I personally don’t really have a need for a pico projector.  I really liked the older PK301, but I love this PK320. OK 100 lumens still isn’t a whole lot, but as I...

Optoma Pico PK320

 

Great peak brightness is offset by an inaccurate color gamut.

The Pico PK320 ($429 MSRP) is a pocket-sized projector from Optoma. It's a bit pricey for a pico projector, considering a 1080p home theater projector starts at about $200 more, but we say it's worth the extra coin.

Optoma PK320 Pico Projector Review

 

A scientific, in-depth analysis with side-by-side comparisons

Great peak brightness for a pico; A super set of port connections

The color gamut is not accurate; The menus are inventive but not intuitive

With this mini beamer, you'll be able to zap some good-sized and easily viewed images onto just about any surface wherever you might be. The Optoma Pico PK320 will help you inform and impress your audiences and keep their attention with its large,...

This pocket projector offers the largest image size of any we researched. It also provides clear images and a long battery life

You will need to use an AC adapter to get the brightest images

This versatile and compact product provides high-quality images, offers a healthy 2GB memory, comes with a remote control and is quiet even during its most intense operation.

Optoma PK320 Review

 

With the widest range of inputs among the pico projectors in the 100-lumen category, Optoma's PK320 gives its owner a great deal of versatility at a modest price.

Expert review by: Nigel Atherthon (whatdigitalcamera.com)

Optoma Pico PK320

 

If you want something that's small enough to fit in a coat pocket or a small bag that will allow projection onto a wall then Optoma has a range of tiny projectors that may be ideal.

Small and light, easy to use, good connectivity, reasonably bright projected image

Projected image not an accurate rendering of original, quite pricey for casual use

Overall, the PK320 is an excellent portable solution for small group business presentations, showing off your pictures or videos on the road, or even for turning your hotel room into a cinema when you're on holiday.
