I received my ShowWx Laser Pico Projector from Device Plus in Madrid, Spain about a month ago. I had to get it there because it was not for sale yet in the U.S. It is an absolutely mind-blowing projector that easily hooks up to a myriad of devices, including iPods, iPhones, digital cameras (with video out function), and laptops (with the optional VGA Dock). It is very small and lightweight - truly pocket-sized - and can project video and pictures with stunning clarity and color.

Because it is a laser device, there is never any need to focus the display. You can project on uneven surfaces, around corners, on ceilings or clothing or a sandy beach at night. The size of the image depends upon the distance between the projector and the surface it is projecting on - in a demo I did on YouTube, I projected onto a white wall in a dark room from a distance of 8 feet, and the diagonal size of the projection was 8 feet - in other words, the equivalent of a 96-inch screen! Even at 8 feet, the picture was still amazing (if you'd like to see, just go to YouTube and search on "ShowWxDemoMar2010.wmv." - I think your jaw will drop!

The battery life on the ShowWx is advertised to be about an hour and 40 minutes, give or take. I haven't tested it but others have and, dependent on what's being displayed and the brightness setting, they have found it to be between 105 and 110 minutes. The ShowWx comes with a USB as well as a wall charger, plus all the cables for hooking up to various devices. You will have to purchase a VGA Dock if you want to project with a laptop, and that costs around $50.

While road warriors and lecturers will find the ShowWx to come in very handy for presentations, I think the best thing about the ShowWx is its WOW Factor.

I often wonder what could be cooler than than "lasers"...So when I heard of a laser-powered pocketable projector, I was willing to try it at any cost.

Despite not putting the product through a more than 1 day test, I can say that this projector is FAR superior than anything LED based. The contrast ratio is said to be "greater than 5000:1" and although I don't have a viable way to check, it seems much higher than that of my LED-based pico projector which states "1000:1."

BRIGHTNESS: The light output is said to be ~ 10 lumens, about the same as the LED-based projectors. HOWEVER, in practice this laser projector seems way brighter. my educated guess is that maybe laser-based light sources do not disperse as much of the light to waste while traveling to the surface projected on.

Overall I'm very happy. I'll try to take some decent photos and/or videos and post them here.

P.S. This projector can readily connect to any TV-out or VGA source (such as a laptop.) I plan to try this soon.

Verified Purchase
took a lot of time trying to decide which one is better.. ended up buying both .. ya i know..

ShowWX..Brightness: 4/5, Color 5/5, picture quality 2/5

PK301..Brightness: 3/5, Color 4/5, picture quality 5/5

------
what i liked most about the ShowWX: smaller size, can recharge from USB, better battery life, no focus required

what i didnt like: no flash memory (can only play off of a source), no VGA, need to buy the add-on which takes away the size advantage, is not good for reading text (blurry, just not clear, and gave me a headache just to look at it)
------
what i like most about PK301: VGA out of the box, has built in memory and can take up to 8GB of memory (maybe more), monitor like text quality, you can easily use this as a PC monitor, read clear text, and way better to watch movies.

what i didnt like about it: the buttons.. will need to move the projector every time you need to press a button
-----
Bottom line.. PK301 clear winner in all aspects .. especially if you want to watch movies with or without a PC.. and its cheaper. ShowWX.. sorry the technology is not ready yet. Hope this helps.

My ShowWX review hooked to my iPhone 3GS
All video displayed was streaming via YouTube.

The packaging is first rate. Excellent presentation. Unpacked my Show, batteries (yes I ordered a second) assorted cables, wrist strap, carry sack and the instructions. As with other electronics, these days, I found the instruction to be OK. I am an experienced tech savvy guy who would still like to see a more robust set of written instructions and suggestions on use, with my devices. I am sure less technical users would appreciate them as well. Old school I guess. The Show's instructions were however clearly written and laid out. Plugged in the charger and proceeded to charge as per instruction, until the light turns green from orange. About 2 hrs. I got very excited when the light turned green. Seems like I had been starring at it the whole time it was charging.

Changed the settings on my iPhone to allow for video out. Turned my ShowWX on before plugging in the cable, for which the instructions are very very clear about the order of connections (I have a slight problem with this which I will explain).
You must wait for the blinking blue light to stop flashing. No problem figuring out when it is ready, because in a darkened room, the Splash Page appears big and bright as can be. Somewhat shocking at first. Next step is to hook up your iPhone (iPod) cable to the Show and then your iPhone.

***My slight problem with the order of connections required for the Show to detect connections is the fact that the splash page is beaming away constantly while making those connections. There should be a way to turn the unit off, without projecting a beam. The only way right now, is to block the front of the unit.
