1. Quite bright up to say about a 80" screen size, any bigger you will lose the sweet spot.
2. Sound is reasonably load for a small speaker (you can add external speakers or headphones if required)
3. Tiny but not quite pocket size, great for traveling.
4. battery life is good at around 1.5 hours (drops to 55 lumens when on battery).
5. Plays most formats of video..
6. This will power an external HDD from the USB so no external power required.
1. Fan is quite noisy for a small projector but if your watching a movie this wont be an issue.
2. Wont play Audio on many movies i have and my camcorder AVCHD wont play sound either. (you can use an HDMI cable which will fix this).
3. I've had two of these now as they have both ended up showing light to the right side of the screen which is only seen when projecting black, it's like someone is shining a weak torch to the side of the screen, it seems the light is bouncing off the silver from the front of the projector. This could be a design flaw unless i have been unlucky twice.
4. Resolution is too low for projecting desktop from the PC which causes the text to be fuzzy, tested in three PC's.
If you intend to use this for movies from an SD card, external hard or direct from a Camcorder it's a good Projector.
Watching photos is good also.
If you intend to use it for gaming then you need to look else ware to be honest.
All it all it's not bad but needs improvement.
EDIT: Just took my 3rd one back as the focus wheel started to click and the lens would not focus. I have another one now which seems ok for now. If it continues to work i will give it 4 stars.
Set-up is pretty much plug and play. Get it out the box, charge it up, connect your media device and you're away. The controls are minimal - manual focus and volume, and buttons to navigate the straightforward interface. In use it's brighter than expected, while it doesn't have the power or range of a full size projector, it's more than enough for a normal room out of direct sunlight. Placed about nine feet from the wall it projects an image size of about 50 inches, the image quality is sharp and bright, if a little contrasty - more than good enough for PowerPoint/Keynote. Fortunately there was no sign of the RGB strobing that affects many small projectors. Audio is sufficiently loud and is nice and clear.
While you can plug it into the mains an internal rechargeable battery means it's easily portable. PC owners will probably find a cable in the box to suit their connectivity needs, Mac/iPad users may need adapters or extra cable to get connected. For ultimate portability it is possible though to connect just a USB memory stick and view video or pictures without the need for a computer/tablet.
My only gripe is the lack of a cable for iOS devices iin the box, but as Apple recently changed the dock connection on iOS devices I can understand Phillips not including one. Philips do sell a cable for iOS devices separately, but at the time of writing it was an eye-watering £35 - which I feel is way too much. Aside from this there is little to complain about, the PicoPIX is small, powerful for it's size and easy to use.
It performed very well on a recent trip on which we rigged up a mini-cinema in a hotel room, with a sheet hooked up over some up-ended coffee tables, we created a 4x6ft screen right in front of us! We had to change our original plan of projecting onto the back of the sheet (the settings on the projector allow for this) as the light was so bright it was shining through the sheet into our eyes! Instead we had it projecting over our heads onto the sheet, and the lights turned off for a cinematic viewing of James Bond in Skyfall - brilliant!
I played the DVD on a laptop with some extra speakers plugged in, as the sound out of the projector itself doesnt really do a film like that justice.
We also used it for a photo slideshow of our recent wedding, for which it was fantastic! I downloaded the videos/photos onto the projector itself (it has about 2Gb internal memory) and then just held it in my hand and pointed it at a wall.
I have also used it with a portable hard-drive plugged straight into it, (although for some reason it didn't like it when I tried to use a USB extension lead to lengthen the conection).
It doesnt perform so well in a well-lit room, especialy at a distance from the wall/screen, but that is to be expected with LED projectors as they dont have the brightness of the alternative bulb projectors.
In a nutshell - for a very reasonable price, I got what I consider to be a brilliant bit of kit, especially when combined with some extra speakers (if you want better quality sound) and a tripod stand (bought separately). It was also smaller than I had expected - coat pocket-sized!!
