Optoma Technology PK102

 

If you want a pico projector that can display bright and colorful presentations all by itself, the Optoma PK102 ($250 as of January 11, 2010) may be what you need. Weighing 4.4 ounces, the 0.6-by-2.0-by-4.1-inch PK102 is the smallest pico projector...

The tiny Optoma PK102 delivers vivid color images and handles stand-alone presentations via its built-in media player.

Optoma PK102 Pico Pocket Projector

 

The PK102 is similar to the PK101 in some important ways. On the inside, it's built around a TI engine that combines a 480- by 320-pixel DLP chip with an LED light source that changes color sequentially from red to green to blue. The light source is...

Extremely portable at 4.4 ounces. Connects to both computers and video devices

Low brightness limits useful image size. Volume is far too low to be useful. No audio output

Small and light enough to share a pocket with your cell phone, the Optoma Pico PK102 can show video but is best for displaying business presentations and photos.

If you want to watch movies - Don't Waste Your Money

Small & light

1. Battery runs out mid-movie (and can not charge while operating!) ; 2. Cables are too short and 'stiff' (hard to manipulate) ; 3. Can not 'project' via USB (VGA from Laptop)

Needs a little something....

 

I voided the warranty on mine immediately by hacking the unit, stripping out the cheesy micro-speaker and replacing it with a 3.5 mm audio jack crammed into the same spot (a delicate operation, may I say). I can now use it with earbuds or an external...

Very small, very lightweight, very compact. Lots of adapters for various inputs. Sharp image, focus control. Has ability to play AVI video (320x200), show JPEG images loaded onboard, or show video from external sources. Video converter software seems...

10 ANSI lumens means "lights-off" operation, kind of like the old 8mm home movie projectors, but not as bright. The internal speaker is an absolute joke, tiny, tinny, and very low volume even when on high (and distorted at that), why even bother. No...

Really handy and useful

 

This projector is an excellent choice for those who gives informal presentations in any place. The battery do not last too much, and I have to use always the electrical cord. I bought a electrical extensión and a mini tripod to avoid problems when used...
