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.The Ultra Portable Projector

I recommend getting an Ultrapod mini as a stand. It looks pretty slick with this projector and lets you tilt the projector vertical onto the ceiling without becoming unstable.
Overall, for $130 I got a projector that does what I needed it to do. I wouldn't foresee myself shelling out any more than that for QVGA quality though.
small size of cell phone
2 lithium ion batteries
can create huge image (though at quality loss and have to stand far away to achieve it)
comes with iphone 40 pin connector
takes longer than cell phone to charge
no menus or digital settings
no battery read out
focus wheel very touchy
when compared to my full scale dell projector it falls short but the portable factor makes it worthwhile
has to be in completely dark room
av connector is a camcorder all in one problem is i want to use with my win 8 surface pro so im forced to use multiple adapters from mini display port to use them together wish it had just vga or something basic
wish it came with tripod
if i can only get it to work with iphone i would probably have just got projector that clips onto iphone
if you want to use it as portable monitor it lasts 4 hours off 2 batteriesincluded and is small i feel i was only so hard on it because i have a better projector and because my job is a projectionist and those projectors are 2048 this is something im glad i bought but there are small projectors out there but for its price i think its worth it
First let me say that I had a very bad experience with the Microvision projector which cost over two hundred dollars more than this projector. The only advantage of the Microvision is that it does not require focusing. But I had to return the Microvision projector back twice due to it failing to perform and the third one also failed. After Microvision ignored my emails and phone calls, I gave up and decided to try the Optoma. (http://www.amazon.com/Microvision-SHOWWX-Laser-Projector-AA0123600-020/product-reviews/B005D6D6DY/ref=cm_cr_pr_top_recent?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=0&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending)
I got this projector for one purpose and one purpose only: to use on my backpacking trips so I did not care that it had to be very dark for optimal viewing. And when there is no light, the picture is incredibly bright despite being only 10 lumens, and I used the lower brightness setting.
The battery is rated at 90 minutes but I got 110 minutes at the lower setting. With an extra battery that gives well over three hours of viewing which is good for two short movies or one very long one. But the extra battery is not even necessary if you have a battery pack that can deliver 1 amp at 5 volts like one that I have. (http://www.amazon.com/New-Trent-IMP70D-Thunderbolt-Blackberry/dp/B002D4IHYM/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1345790076&sr=8-4&keywords=new+trent). With this battery pack I can charge the projector, ipod touch and logitech boombox speaker enough times to watch 6-7 full length movies so I can go backpacking for a week and be able to watch a movie each night in the wilderness. And with my solar charger, I can watch movies endlessly as long as the sun is shining during the day.
The adapter that plugs into the Ipod touch (or other apple device) has two plug ins but they only supply one cable that goes from the adapter to the projector. The other plug in is supposed to connect by another cable (4 pin usb) to the ipod touch in order the charge the device while it is playing. I called Optoma to make sure that I would get the right cable but was told by the technical support person that the reason they don't supply the cable is because when they tested it, it did not charge the apple device which if true is unfortunate.
I could not be happier with my purchase.
Also, this model does not play images off my iphone unless I set it to "slideshow" then it will display a photo or image. For example, I wanted to paint a tree on my wall yesterday using the projector to project the image onto the wall. The only way we could do this was to put the same image into a file 3 times then select that file and say play slideshow. (so it wasn't really a slideshow, just the same pic over and over so I could trace it onto the wall).
Also, I just learned that if the battery is low, the projector will make a high pitched squealing sound. I thought I had broken it after I switched batteries it was fine again.
Also, be aware this device can not connect to a computer. I bought it assuming it would and it can not. (my fault for not researching enough). But that's ok with me-I bought it mainly to play videos.
