What makes this projector different to the others?
The Philips PicoPix is a great small pocket sized projector, perfect for carrying with you. Powering from USB and with the ability to power from a powerbank, the projector gives you more options when on the move.

Where can I use the projector?
Given the size and lumens of the projector, it would be great for presentations and meetings in medium to small sized rooms. Powered from USB means you never have to worry about mains power ports, just connect the supplied USB cable to two free USB ports on your laptop and adjust the brightness level with the slider.

What if I have no laptop?
Using the supplied HDMI cable you can connect to an iPhone. To achieve this you will need an Apple Lightning Digital AV adapter A89LQ. To power the projector you will also need a USB mains adaptor N74DP, or a powerbank A65ZZ. With these you can project from your iPhone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A bit dissappointed I bought this portable projector couple of weeks ago for my wife as a birthday gift. Today we unpacked it and saw that we cannot use it with our smartphones. The reason is our smartphones (also most of the newly released smartphones) do not support display output via micro-usb plug. On the other hand, if you are planning to use the projector with your laptop or tablet, it’s OK. The resolution is enough. The only problem with the projector is it looks like cheaply made. Quality of the item did not satisfy me to pay this value. Not recommend at all..

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not compatible with smartphones / powerbank (4000mAh) The projector is not compatible with most of the smartphones. You can buy only if you will use with a laptop. The quilt is not so good for an average Philips product. Not recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad value for money Good resolution and contrast but poor quality. Really light but needs an external power supply which makes it difficult to carry. You should use its original usb cable (or a high quality one) for power connection. I could not power the device with a standard usb cable. Low quality/price ratio.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Picture quality’s Just bought this and am extremely impressed with the picture quality. Main purpose of buying it is to be able to watch videos when on holiday. For me this ticks all the boxes. Should say that you need to add a speaker. Well worth the money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product was great while it lasted. This product performed reasonably well considering it's size. Sadly it developed a fault just after a year.

the HDMI cable does not fit my Dell Inspiron 1545, as HDMI port on Dell is too large. Is there a cable adaptor I can use?
