Compact, light, and puts up a surprisingly good picture for its size
If you are a mobile presenter that really likes to travel light or you want to watch movies while traveling with an image bigger than your laptop display, then Samsung's SP-H03 might be the answer. It is compact, light, and puts up a surprisingly good picture for its size. With only 480 lines of vertical resolution, it is more suited to movies and PowerPoint slides than detailed spreadsheets, but battery life is close to two hours, and many image formats can be displayed.
Solid, colourful image
This is a 'grab and go' projector for replacing a laptop screen and is not suited for high-end presentations; the lack of any keystone features to adjust angles is one indication of this. That said, the Samsung SP-H03 can produce a solid, colourful image when set up correctly and offers incredible portability, so could well be an ideal option for some.
1GB On-board memory
The Samsung SP-H03 is a high-end pico (or pocket) projector that is designed to balance portability and high-end features. Measuring in at 70 x 27.5 x 70mm without its battery and weighing 210g with its battery, the SP-H03 sports 1GB of internal memory, a microSD slot for expanding memory (up to 16GB) and a 1 watt speaker.
Ultra portable; very light
While the SP-H03 didn't excel in all of our display criteria, it put up a decent fight when compared with more expensive models and is the very essence of portability. For its price and remarkable design you can forgive the SP-H03 its lack of brightness; onboard storage and a removable battery also improve its score.
While the Samsung SP-H03's size and design are two major pluses, the projector didn't excel in the first of our testing criteria, visibility in ambient light. Even fairly dim daylight led to washed-out images, and turning out the lights is an absolute if you want a clearer view. With the lighting adjusted, the quality of the SP-H03's picture was greatly enhanced and the 30 ANSI LED brightness began to shine both figuratively and literally.
Good color rendition and readability with native resolution or higher
The Samsung SP-F10M has a lot going for it. It is solidly constructed, exuding a feeling of quality. The LED light source will never need replacing for the typical life of the projector and there are no dust filters, so maintenance costs should be minimal. Setup is quite simple and there are a number of picture adjustments not often found on projectors in this class.
Produces data LCD-like performance levels for only a small cost premium
While itâ??s hard to rave about the F10M, itâ??s also pretty hard to seriously fault it. For basically, aside from some rather hit and miss colour tones, it produces data LCD-like performance levels for only a small cost premium while delivering all the usual LED benefits - including, most notably, that â??one bulb for lifeâ?? boast. All of which means itâ??s surely only a matter of time before we start to see LED lighting having a go at the affordable home cinema market too.
Low power consumption
The addition of this file support makes the Samsung SP-F10M a choice for those who need a projector that does a little more than just display what you have on your PC. It means you don't have to be a slave to your computer for presentations, you can preload the information or use a USB drive instead. This makes it a solid choice for group events where different people need to use it, perhaps presenting group work, or conference centres.
Best warranty out there - 3 years parts and labor
So what makes the Samsung SP-M255 stand out amongst its siblings? It's super portable, afforable, bright, has a pretty great lamp life, and has the best warranty out there - 3 years parts and labor! So if you're looking for portability, convenience and enough power, brightness, and watts to handle your presentation needs in your classroom or conference room.
