Review and comparison of Optoma PK301, PK301+ (new) and PK320

Optoma recently launched the new Optoma PK301+ projector to replace the now end of line Optoma PK301. This new model is very similar to the much higher priced pocket projector from Optoma, the PK320. The new Optoma PK301+ Plus, is not only a fraction of the price of the Optoma PK320 but it has almost all the same benefits.

New Features Optoma PK301+

The Optoma PK301+ is based on the original Optoma PK301 but with key differences

  • Brighter – 100 Lumens, widescreen images up to 150” (381cm)
  • Better contrast - for sharper, clearer images
  • Great price

Features inherited from the Optoma PK301

  • Superior color performance and image quality (vs. LCOS)
  • Compact, stylish, light design allows you to move it anywhere with ease
  • USB file transfer/charging from PC/ Notebook computer
  • Project from a variety of devices – connect via HDMI, VGA and AV inputs
  • Connection to external speakers or headphones
  • Expandable memory up to 32GB to store a wide range of multimedia files
  • Use with Apple devices – Apple iPad®, iPod®, iPhone® and phone compatible
  • Battery life up to 1.5 hrs
  • Lamp life for 20,000 hours

Alternatively, if you want improved connectivity and even higher resolution (XGA instead of WVGA) with 100 lumens of brightness you may wish to consider the LumaFire M200 palm sized projector which has a host of in-the-box accessories (also available as a bundle) and

Why not bundle your new LED projector with an external battery back from Energizer which works with all our LED projectors providing battery powered projection without sacrificing excellent image quality or reducing the number of lumens when on battery power, to give you valuable extra projection time. It can also power your other electronic gadgets at the same time while on the go.

    PK301+ > 100lm, are you sure ?

    In the manual is write 75lm with AC power, 20lm with internal battery.

      Hi. Yes, Optoma confirm that the projector is 100 lumens on Mains power and 50 lumens on battery power. With an Energizer battery from our accessories range you can use it on battery power at 100 lumens.
