Optoma PK201

 

The Optoma PK201 is a modestly bright Pico projector producing 20 lumens in its brightest mode. Not a lot of power, but this unit doesn't dissapoint even though the brightness is on the low side. I should state that most projectors that run under just...

Optoma PK201

 

In a class of lightweight portable projectors, the Optomo Pico PK201 is a featherweight at only 5.7 ounces. But can this tiny device perform against its heavier opponents?

If you're after a projector that fits into your pocket as easily as an iPhone, this is well worth considering.

Optoma Pico Pocket Projector PK201 review

 

The PK201 comes with several input methods, including Composite, VGA and Mini HDMI, enabling you to use content from products ranging from an iPhone (with a non-supplied adapter) to a TV or games system. In addition you can simply pop in an microSD...

The display stretches to a massive 70”, with WVGA resolution, theoretically enabling the device to be used as a portable cinema system. However in practice we found the image is not bright enough to work at that size.

Not bright enough to be useful

 

While it's very light weight and full of features, the bulb is not bright enough to be useful.

Road Warriors Must Have Tool

 

I an a consultant on construction projects. The areas I do presentations in are remote and often primitive. One less bag to get through customs and throwing a projection up on a cramped construction trailer wall is what this device seems to be made for.

Nice and small, but not all it's cracked up to be

 

Good: Small, low power consumption, good input options including micro usb.Bad: 1) The software it comes with to convert video files to a format it can play doesn't work - hangs up the computer. Use video editing software to convert to iPod format. 2)...
