Bright enough to Spark your Imagination!

Featuring long-life, solid-state, and LED illumination, coupled with the amazing new DLP Pico chipset, this tiny system produces a picture that will blow your mind. The Pico projector connects to nearly anything.

The new DLP Pico projector slips easily into your pocket. When you want to share pictures or videos, watch a movie, or surf the net, just turn in on and project. It's the easy way to give an impromptu slide show orr plug in your video iPod and watch your movie on a screen that you can actually see!


Optoma PICO Projectors Have Revolutionized the Industry

Why carry around large, expensive projectors with your notebook computer, when you can use the PK-101 to fulfull your projection needs? It is bright enough to give a presentation to a small group of people, while its small size and sleek design will be sure to impress. DLP Technology is the cutting edge of imaging innovations. The PICO series has taken projectors to a whole new level of utility. Watch a movie on the plane from the back seat in front of you. Play video games on the ceiling. Share videos and pictures with friends at your party. If you can dream it, a DLP Pico projector can do it. And there's no maintenance required since there's no lamp to replace!



Optoma PK-101 is Groundbreaking in the field of Projectors!

The picture may look good now, but what about 3 years from now? Picture quality is directly impacted the durability of a projector. If the picture goes bad, the projector will either need to be repaired or replaced, and that's expensive. DLP projectors are famous for their long lasting picture quality not only because they offer a pristine, digital image, but becaise they are also virtually immune to a nasty phenomenon known as Color decay. Color decay (image degradation) can affect many LCD projectors. When Color decay takes hold, the image on the screen produced by an LCD projector may have a yellow or green tint to it, you may have seen this before. When it happens, you have to either replace the LCD panels or the projector to return to the picture you paid for. Color decay not only looks yellow or green on the screen, it can make text harder to read. DLP projectors have a technological advantage over LCD projectors in terms of retaining color saturation and guarding against Color Decay or image degradation during extended periods of usage. Why? Because DLP technology simply reflects the light of the projector, digitally onto the screen to produce a stunning picture that lasts, even after years of active use.

We purchased a few of these for work(to be used with both the iPhone and iTouch). I would probably give this projector 3 1/2 stars, but it was not an option. We have not been using this very long, but those that have used it have been very impressed (it is better than what we were expecting).

Are these for everyone? I would say no. The picture quality is decent, but it does not come close to larger projectors that don't cost a lot more than this does. My guess is that a lot of people will want this because it looks cool, but I'd bet that most people will not use it much once the newness wears off.

The image is decent when viewed in a very dark room. The lighter the room, the more the image gets washed out. It does not take much light either before the image is washed out and only usable if you are fairly close to the surface you are projecting the image on. Even in dark rooms, the image is on the dark side (whites will have a bluish tint). There is a built in speaker, but it's basically worthless so plan on connecting it to some sort of external speaker.

I realize that the review seems a little negative and I don't want you to think that we are not happy with these. Like I mentioned above, we have been very happy with what these can do. The media guys will not be using these to show HD video to clients, but they will get a lot of use. We have a number of people that travel a lot for training purposes. They usually have to pack around a laptop/dvd player, projector, external speakers, and all of the wires needed to connect everything together. They are usually in smaller rooms presenting to small groups. For this purpose, the projector is going to work very well.

Here is what we have put together.

I've had this for about a week now. I've watched about three movies on it, played Gears of War 2, and watched the Cotto/Pavlik fights off pay per view on this.
We watched the boxing matches at my brother's apartment, we had the Pico on a tripod and connected to a 2.1 Logitech system. We were able to comfortably watch the fights on a 122 inch image on the wall! We actually could have gone bigger but didn't because of space restrictions. Mind you, the living room was about 90% dark, and the walls are light brown and not white. We were quite impressed!
What I've noticed though is that this thing is meant for VGA-type stuff. Yes, Gears of War 2 was playable, but it looked... like crap. This is the case when you try to play something that is meant to be played at 10801 or 1080p and view it through VGA. It's going to look bad.
I knew this before I bought the Pico. My main use for this is to watch DVD's and play Nintendo Wii off of it. So, if you are expecting high-definition off this thing, don't buy it. Only buy this if you're going to watch stuff on the go, and you understand its limitations. Yes, it is expensive, but it is the best of its kind, at least right now (until the Microvision Laser Pico come out, wow) and it doesn't feel like a 1st generation product.
Pros:
- 10 or 11 lumens... not that bad!
- you can get a suprisingly huge image size!
- I guess because of the DLP, the reds this produces are RED, like it glows red almost. You will notice this, trust me.
- ultra portible, smaller than my Ipod Touch 2G and LG Voyager.
- comes with 2nd battery, Ipod adapter... basically everything you need right out the box.

Cons:
- EXPENSIVE (however, I got mine for $349 through Microsoft Live cashback).

As a sales person who frequently does presentations to groups of 5 or smaller, I purchased this device thinking that it would be ideal for those quick PDF demo/product sheets that I often reference in my presentations and have stored on my iPhone.

After receiving the device, I've since learned that all it projects is a solid blue screen unless you are in the iPod app. So it's only good for showing movies - that's it.

Maybe some 3rd party apps will be written that can include this PDF projection functionality; for now, it's just a movie projector.

It works exactly as describe. Actually, it will output much larger than 60" without much distortion. As long as you don't compare it to the very large tabletop projectors or much more expensive models you will not be disappointed. The brightness over-all is better than another model that I seen of equal price, but you still need a rather dark room for it to be effective, as I imagine is the case for most projectors. I'm pleased with it and would recommend it for what it's worth. It's a 4 oz device, not a 60" plasma HDTV.
Other devices are always "just around the corner", but if you aren't into waiting several months in hopes of prices to start lowering and with untested durability with new devices then this is a good choice. It's already been heavily tested and no malfunctions or defects or lifespan issues mentioned as of yet. However, the speaker is weak, and they probably should have left it off like many other projectors have done. Using a separate speaker system or headphones solves that issue.

As other posters have said, it does display a better image than others which are "suppose" to be better when comparing the listed specs.

Buy a cheap adapter so you can use your laptop with it...or just plug it into your phone like I do. It will work with any phone that has TV-Out. If you can see it on your phone, then you can see it with the projector. No conversions necessary. :)
