Supports usefully bright, high-quality image in the most portable format
As should be obvious, the AAXA P2 Jr. offers a lot to like. Its got excellent data image quality, good video quality, good connectivity, plus the ability to read files directly from USB keys and microSD cards. It also helps a lot that it doesn't show many rainbow artifacts. It fits in a shirt pocket and has ample brightness for the size, particularly when using AC power.
Set-up is a breeze
Brookstone and Texas Instruments have once again raised the bar in the world of pico projectors. Although this device would never serve as a dedicated projector in the home of a videophile, it is merely a matter of time until pico projectors become contenders in the arena of home entertainment. Since multi-tasking has become a part of our culture, many of us demand the same usefulness from our electronics.
Bright Little Projector
All in all, this is a worthwhile projector to have, at times I really do not believe that the image was projected from such a tiny device and that the brightness rating was just 85 lumens (it feels brighter than that). It does have a built-in speakers but I did not use it, I plugged in my own speaker for a fuller sound.
A great projector
I purchased this projector to be used at functions for a social club. We generally show DVD's in a room that is only slightly darkened, with the projector about 15' from the screen, and club members view it from 20 - 50 ft away. So we needed a projector with some muscle to get an image large and crisp enough to be enjoyed from the back of the room. I researched lots of projectors, and this one seemed to offer the best quality for a reasonable price.
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.
Very good product, excellent value
It performs extremely well. In a silent room, you will hear a very low sound of fan blowing. When a movie sound is on, you won't notice any sound from the fan. When it is dark outside, the picture is very clear, though I have to say it is my first projector, so have no parameter to compare against. But the clarity is very good to me. It can be hooked with media player, cable receiver, PC through HDMI, RCA cable, VGA cable, S video cable. It has a USB plug for picture viewing.
Higher resolution than some Picos with SVGA 858x480
This projector is definitely one of the more impressive pico projectors. To date, we've only seen one other we think is overall better (Optoma's PK320) which is why we gave that pico projector our Hot Product Award, and this P4-X our "almost as good" Special Interest award.
Ultimately it will come down to which features you want/need, including brightness, battery life, picture quality, physical size and weight, ease of use.
