Picture was clear
At a retail price of $230, this projector is worthy of consideration if you are not planning on upgrading to the new iPhone in the near future. It offers a clear picture with some added flare and attitude. This consumer has a shiny new gadget riding shotgun to her beloved iPhone 4s.
Excellent build quality
The 3M MP220's looks might not set pulses racing as much as some pocket rivals, but it more than makes up for its aesthetic shortcomings with its build quality, the extent of its features, its flexibility, and best of all its picture performance, which comfortably outperforms expectations raised by previous experience with such small projectors.
Serious film fans won't be happy with its lack of black level depth, we guess, but then the MP220 is fundamentally not targetted at that audience.
Looks and feels solid
The 3M Mobile Projector MP220 looks and feels solid. It clearly targets business users who can expense not just the unit's high price, but also the cost of the accessories that render it more usable. Its unusually high resolution should add to the corporate appeal. But if you don't need the extra high-res support, you might want to look at less-expensive DLP options.
This projector is a great item for watching movies or showing photos to other people. The picture quality is great and the item is very easy to use. The only downside is that the volume of the speaker is very low, however this is easily overcome using a blue tooth speaker. The projector will also get very hot after about 2 hours of use and cause the phone to overheat.
Nifty 3D images
I have seen 3D at the movie theater, and loved the images popping off the screen. I've even looked at TV's that boasted 3-D operation, but with them you HAD to have glasses to watch TV, even. But to watch it at home on your own projector is just great. I kept my glasses from the last time I went to the theater, and with this projector and these glasses, I have great 3-D movies in my own home. Its great!
Optoma's Playtime PT100 is an impressive little projector with a rock-bottom price. It is one of the least expensive ways to put a bright, vibrant picture on the wall at a reasonable diagonal size for video games or movies. While it is built for games, it can serve double duty for film and video anywhere you need it. It is certainly not perfect, and it offers almost no picture adjustments. But for less than $200, it is a great little projector.
