One of the gadgets that really stood out at CES 2010 was the Optoma PK301 pico/pocket projectors. As someone who has been trying to review best projectors today, this was something not to be missed.
The Optoma PK301 is Optoma’s latest and best pico/pocket projector with features like MicroSD slot that will accept up to 16GB of data, meaning you don’t need to hook up your computer to display your videos, spreadsheets, and documents separately. Just store all your presentation data on your MicroSD and bam, there you got a portable presentation.
The PK301 is also super bright at 50 lumens, can display up to 120 inches diagonal (854×480 resolution), meaning you will get a pretty darn large projection out of a super-tiny projector.
As seen in my video, the PK301 is ultra-lightweight, you could probably travel with it in your pocket.
Other nifty things include stuff like both VGA and HDMI inputs. If you use HDMI inputs, you also have the option to connect speakers using its audio outputs.
Overall this is probably the best portable projector I have yet to see. I think PK301 is available on Amazon for around $399.
Here’s a short hands-on video review of the PK301:
