Pros Works if you live in Batman;s lair.
Cons It is hard to see the image with half the lights turned off.
Summary I ultimately sent this back and got an AAXA P4 for less than what I paid for this. It is 80 lumens and I can see it even with the lights on. That's what a projector should be able to do. I got it for work which was bought by my company but the hassle of returning it was a waste of time. I should have gotten the P4 from the beginning.
Pros barely fair projections
Cons price is higher and the quality is not as nice
Summary I was considering this one when I was shopping for a mini projector but then I came across the P1Jr from AAXA. I am so pleased with the one I just bought from AAXA. It works great. http://www.aaxatech.com
Pros I would go with the Ray Displays Ray for business applications. You get a no-frills projector that is perfect for presentations. www.raydisplays.com
Cons high price for too many features that you will never use.
Summary Go with a lower priced pico for business applications.
Pros Gorgeous design. Fits in shirt pocket. Nice feel - like soft rubber texture. Quiet fan. Tripod/leather pouch/different plugs/VGA cord included. So simple to use. In a dark room, picture good to watch TV/Movies. Has small, but serviceable speakers.
Cons Can ONLY be used in DARK room-no exception. Can barely read text-blurry-no matter how much you focus. Must move device closer and away from screen (and a same level to keep rectangular screen) focus limited. Brightness only 10-12 lumens-needs more!
Summary Using the pico projector with my netbook using Slingbox to watch TV on a 50 inch screen anywhere there's wifi is priceless, albeit limited to night/DARK room. Movies too. Up to say 50 or 60 inches is passable to most. Would I like 50 lumens? You betcha! But at a reduced price, I'll get this now and get a better one in a couple of years! It is a niche product for me bc can only be used in darkness, but I'm using mine a lot. Disappointed no cord for Iphone/Ipod/other smartphone - must purchase separately. DO NOT USE FOR DAYTIME BUSINESS USE! The technology isn't there yet and you will very likely be disappointed. Another disappointment was that I can't read text well - I was hoping to view my web surfing or Word docs on the screen. Overall I'm very glad I purchased my at a reduced price and use mine often.

Pros Bright enough for use in sort of controlled lighting, works fine with my PC and mac
Cons would be nice if it came with ipod cable
Summary I tried several other pico projectors, this was the only one I could find bright enough for general use..you have to dim the lights a little, but you can see the picture..the optoma I tried was barely visible. The synch with everything I've tried also works, and I get about 3 hours of battery life. It's no substitute for a plug in projector, but that's not what it is.
