I bought one for my husband to use in the motorhome, its so dark in there and you can project it of the blinds its just great. Its easy to use, just wish they had supplied a ipod cable, luckly we had one. For us it worked straight out of the box without any problems or issues with focus wheels etc. It was simple to use really and the quality is great - pixels are not a issue.

We are using it for ipod movies, dvds, tv and also for presentations. It really is very good my only negative point is the speaker but you know for the size of it what do you expect. Just use headphones or a battery operated speaker I use my logitech ipod dock/speakers and it works great. It comes with a handy attachment to use a mini tripod which is a must and also a lovelly little leather case to keep it safe when not in use. LOVE IT!

Optoma PK101 Pico Projector

When I first heard about the arrival of pocket projectors I was very excited as I travel a great deal and much as I love my iPhone, there is no substitute for size when it comes a true cinema experience.

Not having seen a demo I bought blind but my expectations had been managed by several on-line reviews so I had some idea of what to expect.

Firstly the size, not much larger than a deck of playing cards which is amazing considering that it can project images up to 60 inches (which it genuinely can). The unit is attractive to look at but would have been even better with a metal housing.

Controls are limited to a very difficult to adjust focus control which is a bit all or nothing and a two stage brightness control. Sadly there is no volume control and the internal speaker always sounds stretched which is not surprising given how small it must be. I ended up using headphones which was much more satisfactory.

Now to the picture. The projector is best used in total darkness, anything less than this requires that you significantly reduce the projection size down to a few inches. The picture quality initially impresses but you soon come to realise that the projector simply does not have enough power and as a result the picture is quite dark. It will project up to the stated 60 inch size but I found it was happiest at around 32 to 40 inches. Colours are strong, perhaps too much so particularly reds in my experience, matters improved slightly however when using the less powerful of the two settings setting which resulted in more natural skin tones.

The thing you have to consider when you buy a Pico, is what are you going to use it for? Are you going to show off videos on the move? Are you going to use it ad-hoc to watch movies? Or are you going to replace your TV with it? If you are planning to replace your TV, then you'd be well advised to avoid this product. If you want to use it for the purpose for which it was designed, then you're in luck.

The Pico is a handy, lightweight device that has impressed an initially skeptical me. Whilst there are some minor niggles: sound too low, battery life, you have to remind yourself that this isn't meant to replace the HDTV in your front room. If you want to use it on the fly, then it's the perfect gadget for you.

The Pico is so brilliant in so many ways, allowing you to watch pictures or videos on the move, pretty much anywhere.

I've connected the Pico both an iPod touch, iPod nano, and Microsoft Zune, and on all three devices, the picture was far better than I expected, assuming a good quality video rip. The colours were good, and in total darkness we could easily watch a video of 50 or so inches. The battery life, while not stunning, easily went up to 1.5 hours on max brightness, and with 2 included batteries, chances are you'll be just fine.

The connection was incredibly straightforward, once I had the proper cables: a simple matter of plug and play.

The sound however, is absolutely miserable, and this is the most glaring omission on this product. Without a headphone jack, the only option you have for listening to movies is the completely miserable on board speaker. The quality is miserable, and on most rips, it was barely loud enough to watch with friends.

Thus, you'll probably need to connect it to an external speaker, but this is easier said than done. This brings us to the second problem with the device: the need to buy an outrageous amount of extra cables. Taking a look at my Pico and zune now, to connect it, I used the following:

the projector itself
The zune
One Zune/iPod composite video cable, to get the video and sound outputs from my zune
The composite-video in cable for the projector
the composite -> 3.5mm headphone jack cable, to allow me to output the volume on an external speaker
A speaker coupler to actually be able to connect the speaker.
