Optoma Pico PK101

 

With the arrival of the Optoma Pico PK101, projectors small enough to fit in a shirt pocket are finally real.

Extremely portable, at four ounces. Connects to iPods and standard composite video. Rechargeable batteries.

Low brightness limits useful image size. Volume is too low to be useful in most conditions. No audio output connection.

Optoma Pico Pocket Projector

 

The prospect of projecting an image anywhere becomes a reality with Optoma's Pico Pocket Projector, the first shipping product we've tested in this burgeoning new projector category. Introduced earlier this summer, the Pico Projector ($400 street) lets...

Small and easy to use ; Includes second battery

Limited input capabilities ; Projected images are somewhat blurry

Optoma's diminutive projector makes a great traveling companion, despite somewhat fuzzy image projection.

Optoma Pico PK101

 

Optoma picked an appropriate moniker for its Lilliputian-size video projector. The Pico PK101 isn't just small, it's almost inconceivably tiny. It measures just 1.97 inches wide by 4.06 inches long by 0.59 inches thick, and it weighs only four ounces. ...

Crisp, bright display at distances up to about six feet ; incredibly small, battery powered, built-in speaker

Needs a very dark room for best results--and a battery yswap to play a feature-length movie

In addition to its Li-Ion battery, the Pico PK101 can operate on AC or USB power (we used the USB port on a Metadot Das Keyboard). Optoma claims a fully charged battery should last 90 minutes, but ours delivered only 67 minutes while playing a silent,...

Optoma Pico PK101

 

The biggest question out there is who will buy them, and what will they use them for. It's been argued by some, that they can be used for presentations. Whether they are viable for presenting in the tradtional sense is iffy at best. I've been in the...

Colors tend to be oversaturated ; No image controls ; Limited resolution - at half of VGA, nothing is going to be particularly sharp Resolution is lower than most other announced pico projectors ; Very limited brightness - suitable only for small...

Getting back to the Optoma Pico - it certainly is cool. I can see a number of folks really into the latest gadgets, being drawn to the Pico (or one of its competitors). We'll just have to see how long it takes Optoma and other manufactures to sell...

Incredibly portable, less than half the bulk of a pack of cigarettes, Simple to use, Composite video input, Video quality is not bad, considering, Comes with spare battery. One fully charged battery should provide up to 1.5 hours of use in the bright...

The Optoma Pico PK101 is certainly fun to play with. You’ll have to decide, however if you have a use that makes sense. The Pico is all about portability, tiny, lightweight, and battery powered. If you have a portable application, be it gaming,...

Optoma Pico PK101

 

Every once in a while a product comes along and has the WinLabs team in absolute awe. Optoma's Pico PK101 is one such device; measuring 50 x 103 x 15mm and with a weight of 115g, the PK101 is the smallest projector the team has ever come across

Optoma Pico Pocket Projector

 

Toss out that malfunctioning projector and set up your next presentation on your pocket-size Optoma Pico Pocket Projector.

It used to be that the thought of being able to project an image from any location at any time was a concept restricted to Hollywood science-fiction movies. Now, thanks to Optoma's latest projector technology, that gadget has become a reality....

Optoma Pico PK101 Review

 

The Optoma Pico PK-101 projector projects photos or video from anything you can connect to it via composite video and does a very good job of rendering color.
